Why do members clubs often require a more advanced till?
Running a members club of any sort can be a complex process having to deal with membership renewals and expiry dates to name a few. Managing all of these things (and more!) without the right equipment can be challenging and stressful – which is why you need a customer members card system and membership software in place.
By opting for a specialist epos till such as the bespoke ones we provide at TillPoint, you can ensure that you have all the features you need in one place. This reduces the need for record taking by hand and provides a simple system which is easy to use and will help you with keeping on top of business!
Benefits of investing in quality membership software
You can pick up a fairly inexpensive till from an array of places, but how much will it actually help you? It is likely that a cheap till will only have the basic features, and it could be slow and provides very little information.
If you own or manage a member’s club of any sort, whether it be a sports facility or any other type of club, you will need additional features on your epos till to make your life easier. The membership software we can add to our tills includes features such as pre-paid accounts, age restricted products, membership expiry dates and photo ID checks.
Want to add promotional features to your tills? We can even add club management software which will allow you to offer discounts, manage ‘members only’ pricing, have a loyalty card system in place, and offer targeted promotions.

When a card is swiped at the TouchPoint till the member’s photo can be displayed confirming the identity of the holder.
This ensures that the right person gets served, no members share their cards with non-members and stolen cards aren’t used.
At the point of sale the system is fast and easy to use, the touch-screen till speeds up service, helping minimise queues at the bar
and maximize sales volume during peak periods. In addition to memberships with variable pricing, simple ticketing and room hire charges can all be accommodated. For food service, kitchen printers can be used to streamline operations.
Secure login devices or “Staff Cards/Dallas Keys” identify staff members using the tills. With a full audit trail of all their transactions, corrections and refunds are easily traced, helping to minimise misuse, theft and shrinkage.
