Many businesses and enterprises have taken advantage of the numerous enhancements that come with Corporate POS (Point of Sale) software. From increasing overall participation to automated operations, corporate POS software has been shown to increase operational efficiency within company stores and cafeterias with a plethora of supporting software and products to cater to employees’ busy schedules. Businesses that do not take advantage of current POS software also do not leverage the task-cutting protocols that are enabled with up-to-date systems. Inventory, reporting, and marketing are all important factors in any business model, and current software allows users to take these facets of the business to new levels
A well-rounded POS system will allow users to take advantage of data reporting and customer information to make informed decisions on their sales and marketing. Other beneficial features include certain automated processes; the following are some of the most popular and incorporated software that are used in businesses globally, and have been proven to increase efficiency and revenue for many locations:
- Employee Payroll Deductions
- Self-Service Kiosks
- Online Ordering
Employee Payroll Deductions
The use of payroll deductions has become very effective in many corporate offices. By making use of badge-scanning technology, employees may use funds from their weekly paychecks to make purchases from their company store(s), cafeteria(s), or coffee shops simply by scanning their ID badges to complete the transaction. Businesses that incorporate payroll deduction technology leverage more convenient purchasing options for their staff, and faster checkout times overall; as a result, employees are incentivized to use their payroll deductions more often, increasing overall participation for your company stores and cafeterias.
To sum up, employee payroll deductions give the following added benefits to any location:
- Increased participation
- Increased revenue
- Automated processes
- Track Employee Balances
- Manage Credit Limits
- Faster checkout times
- More convenient purchasing options
ARBA Retail System’s payroll deduction technology, ArbaRapidPay is perfectly suited for any corporate/enterprise office setting. Integrated with your ARBA POS register sales, ease of documenting and tracking sales is available, and reporting features are much more comprehensible. Other payroll deduction technology does not integrate with the POS register, making the automated reporting and sales tasks a much more manual process. With ArbaRapidPay, locations can cater to external employees (contractors, part-time workers) as well as their full-time, in-house staff. Multiple payment options within payroll deductions are available for employees; you may provide the full balance for the pay period, or choose a split payment option based on the total cost of items. With both on-prem and cloud payroll deduction options, ARBA Retail Systems is a leading expert in payroll deduction technology and offers corporate POS software to some of the largest operations nationwide.
Self-service kiosks have become more popular with their inclusion in many national food chains. The premise of the self-service kiosks is simple: customers may use a touchscreen instead of waiting in long lines to place their order with a cashier. The use of this technology has shown to increase participation from both customers and employees and saves vast amounts of time for other expenditures and more ordering. Customers can pick which items they want from their cafeteria, and choose to pick up or place the order for a later time.
In brief, self-service kiosks give the following advantages
- Reduce queue times
- Increased Participation
- Increased Revenue
- Contactless payments
ARBA Retail Systems’ Self-Service Kiosk software includes the same features that most corporate cafeteria POS operations incorporate, with the addition of a few to help manage the location more coherently. Integrated with our payroll deduction technology, ArbaRapidPay, employees may have a full-rounded contactless purchasing experience by making use of both their ID badge and Self-Service Kiosk. After completing their order, they may use their employee payroll deductions account instead of a credit/debit card. ARBA’s Self-Service Kiosk software also allows cashier-operated terminals to be configured with the self-ordering software; this allows customers to continue placing orders without introducing labor costs for a cashier employee. The use of item modifiers is present in ARBA’s Self-Service Kiosk software as well, allowing for pre-loaded special instructions to be placed within items on an order. Auto-rotating menus are preferred with this technology so as to automatically change the displayed food items for different times in the day. ARBA’s self-service kiosk can handle up to 4 different menus per day, and the use of kitchen printing routing allows for specific orders (I.e. grill food items) to be sent to specific kitchens (I.e. grill food kitchen) if the location has multiple cafeterias/kitchens.
The use of online ordering software has become much more popular in the last few years and has gained more traction as a full-fledged point of sale. The use of online ordering allows customers to easily place orders to their cafeteria using any device. Integrated directly with your ARBA POS System, our Online Ordering software allows for credit/debit card transactions, as well as Payroll Deductions (ArbaRapidPay) payments. Orders can be placed for pick up, delivery, or even curbside pick-up. Online Ordering adds to the contactless experience and gives the ultimate contactless enhancements when paired with payroll deductions and mobile apps. ARBA Retail Systems provides mass customization for its users, and the use of custom menus can be uniquely designed to fit your specific business needs, including company logo, colors, etc.
In short, the use of online ordering software allows:
- Integrated Payroll Deduction payments
- Contactless transactions
- Schedule Changes as necessary
- Privately/Publicly held URL
- Pick-up, delivery, curb-side
- Loyalty Programs

Similar to online ordering, ARBA’s Online Retail Store software acts as an online ordering platform for company store locations. ARBAs Online Store is integrated with your current inventory which allows your inventory to reduce as items are purchased online; ease of documenting and reporting online sales are feasible with an ARBA POS System and allows for reporting and financials from both your register and online sales. Also being integrated with payroll deductions, employees can make purchases from their company store using their available accounts balances. You can include the same loyalty programs as your other POS systems, and offer a branded experience to assist with marketing and loyalty for your regular customers.

The advantage of integrated inventory, automated purchasing and receiving, employee payroll deductions, and the other aforementioned products all play a large role in creating the best purchasing experience for both your employees and customers.
