Humans have found a way to exchange currency for the goods or services they wanted to acquire from others from the first days of trade thousands of years ago. Fast forward to the 21st century and we’ve made paying for goods more convenient than ever using technology like Pilot Point of Sale and QRHub.

A cashless SA?

A recent Twitter poll found that 45% of South Africans are considering going cashless. The results of the poll showed that 35% of respondents could see themselves exclusively transacting digitally while another 10% said they might be able to envision this. The poll was conducted by a local bank as part of an initiative to highlight the cost and inconvenience of using cash. Commenters on Twitter noted that not carrying cash on your person is also safer.

It’s never been easier

Technology has made going cashless a breeze. More South Africans own smartphones, have access to the internet and can make use of apps. Businesses use this technology to make the consumer experience as seamless as possible. And the restaurant industry is no exception. In fact, it’s a good example of how these innovations are making the dining experience even more convenient to please their customers and beat off their competition.

Pilot’s Point of Sale software solutions include handheld devices that free restaurant staff from traditional hurdles, allowing them to achieve customer service excellence and operational efficiency.

QRHub for mobile payments
