Mr. Sam Wan (Head of IT, Japan Foods Holding) shares the benefits of TabSquare SmartTab in Ajisen Ramen

Since implementing TabSquare SmartTab in 2015, Japan Foods Holding has benefited in terms of reducing man power and increasingly average check size. Previously, the restaurant engaged 3 full time service staff in one outlet and after implementing TabSquare SmartTab, they managed with only 1 full time and 1 part-time service staff.  The operations are also streamlined and upselling and cross-selling activities are consistent now.  Mr. Sam Wan is very confident and pleased with the TabSquare team as he has commented that the team provides the best support.  In fact, TabSquare is regarded as a partner and not a vendor!        

“We needed 3 full timers in our restaurant before but we only need 1 now!  TabSquare Solution has definitely help us resolve manpower issues and increase efficiency”.  – Mr. Sam Wan, Head of IT, Japan Foods Holding.

TabSquare raises S$3.5 million to enhance its cloud-based platform that increases productivity of restaurants

Singapore, April 14, 2016 TabSquare, a Singapore based startup that offers cloud-based operations management and customer engagement platform for the Food & Beverage (F&B) industry raised S$3.5 million in its Series A funding round led by Walden International, with participation from Infocomm Investments Pte Ltd, Phillip Private Equity and serial investor Ivan Lee’s investment vehicle, Raging Bull.

Restaurants today are faced with scattered technology offerings - be it reservations, reviews, delivery or loyalty – that impact less than 10% of the restaurants’ revenues and addresses only some of their pain points. TabSquare offers an integrated restaurant management and customer engagement technology platform that makes each customer interaction more meaningful, efficient and profitable. It is focused on solving the more critical pain points that are core to a restaurant’s profitability and which impact 90% of the restaurant revenues.

With TabSquare SmartTab the restaurant owners can offer a customized tablet menu on every restaurant table where customers can view dishes, get recommendations, place orders, redeem promotions and even pay their bills, without waiting for the waiter. TabSquare SmartApp allows the restaurant to build their business beyond the physical store and delivers the seamless customer interaction even when the customers are at their office or home. TabSquare Nucleus, the cloud-based data warehouse and analytics engine, allows restaurant owners to update the menu on-the-fly as well as provide data analytics to understand consumer behaviour and spending patterns; thereby improving the restaurant’s efficiency and profit margins. The platform’s comprehensive features, design and the new platform-as-a-service pricing ensure that the solution pays for itself from day one!

Integrated with the leading point-of-sale (POS) systems in South-East Asia, TabSquare platform is easy to adopt and the restaurant operators can enjoy a fully integrated Front-office & Back-office system that gives them complete control over restaurant operations from inventory to kitchen management as well as customer marketing and engagement.

ThaiExpress founder, Ivan Lee said, “As a restaurateur in the past and knowing what TabSquare solutions can do, I can see how every restaurant owner operator would definitely want their solution. They have done the hard work of really understanding restaurant operator’s problems and providing an easy, simple and comprehensive solution. This is the future of restaurants. TabSquare’s approach of building a strong end-to-end platform from ground up, their vision of making restaurant operations more data driven and their strong business model are what makes them unique and best positioned to be a leader in this space.”
“Thriving in a manpower-lean landscape today is critical to any business operation, particularly so in the F&B industry. TabSquare’s platform offers solutions that improves productivity by lowering labour and operational costs while powering-up revenues with data-driven, customised recommendations for diners. We see this as a strong value proposition not just in Singapore but also for the international markets.” said Pang Heng Soon, General Manager of Infocomm Investments.

With TabSquare, we can run a similar sized restaurant with just 1 full time and 1 part-time staff. Now, we cannot imagine opening a new outlet without TabSquare menus on every table in the restaurant.”
