At Money2020, Groupon announced a new update to its Breadcrumb POS app, adding some CRM and employee management features.
A new CRM feature lets businesses track customers and learn more about them, while storing their contact info and analyzing purchase behaviors, recording notes on their preferences.
Another feature lets businesses set functions for specific roles and employees, assigning transactions to individual people, filter sales and product reports, and track commissions and tips.
The app also lets you use the iPad's camera to scan standard barcode SKUs to edit items. They can also upload images for each menu item.
"Our team spent countless hours conducting on-premise research and interviewing merchants about their biggest point-of-sale obstacles," says Groupon's Varun Krishna in a blog post. "Today’s updates are a reflection of how a modern solution addresses some of these operational challenges."
