Zapf-Kontroll Kit








In every Bonator the complete list of food and beverages inclusive corresponding item modifiers (e.g.. medium, welldone, hot, cold, etc. ) are stored. The input of orders can easily be done by means of direct-selection keys, which can be identified by useful graphic symbols. There are several keyboards for various lines of business available. Of course booking is also possible in the traditional way by entering item numbers or prices.
"Due to the portable qualities and especially to the independent working hardware structure of the Bonator it is possible to obtain from every installed handheld terminal comprehensive sales and inventory reports at any time."

A waiter enters the food and beverage orders of the guests into his Bonator and transmits them via the built in transmission unit or by wired takeoff racks to the points of dispensing and preparation, e.g. kitchen and/or bar counter. The orders will be printed out on receipt printers, shown on monitors, or passed automatically to the dispensing system and visualised there by flare signals. The output on a display instead on a printer has the advantage that the incoming orders can be sorted regarding various criterions e.g. table#, waiter#, item#.
"If the cook wants to know how many salads he has to prepare at once, or whom the prepared meals belong, or who has been waiting at longest for his order, he only has to press the corresponding key on the kitchen terminal and he will be informed!"

Depending on the system authority the user obtains from every installed Bonator reports concerning guest-, table-, waiter-, and total sales, as well inventory- and tax information for the actual or accumulated period.
"If you want to check your stock or to discuss with your tax adviser, simply take the Bonator along with you, which has stored all the information!"

The Bonator operates by remote control or by wired takeoff racks various dispensing systems like electronic beverage taps or coffee machines. That means the barkeeper is informed instantaneously by light signals and/or LCD display about the orders of the guests or rather what the waiters typed into their portable Bonator terminals. This working method is also called credit system, as the different taps are only switched free if someone entered corresponding orders into his terminal. Nevertheless depending on the volume of business it is also possible to switch over to the so-called waiter self-service mode, what means that a waiter pours out the beverages himself from the dispenser without the need to book in advance.
"It does not take longer than a pulse beat from ordering till pouring out beverages. Hectic idle runnings of the waiters can be avoided, what improves the atmosphere of the restaurant."

Only few key hits are necessary and the Bonator reports about all open table bills as well detailed orders of every single guest. In order to select the various guest accounts, it is possible to display the table with the seats graphically on the LCD display. The waiter only has to place the cursor on the proper seat and the Bonator informs about the open bill of the specified guest. Moreover large bills can be split by transferring items between the different guest/seat accounts. The Bonator calculates also the change amount, as well deals with necessary currency conversions.
"Errorfree working results, till now only achievable with a high qualified staff, are now also possible for part-time employees without stress."

In every installed Bonator terminal all the data and program functions are stored separately on solid state semiconductors, and a second backup-cell ensures the data retention for several years. If more than one Bonator terminal are installed, they will backup mutually, what leads to a multiple data and program security compared with systems where a central PC server with mechanical hard drives is continuously necessary.
"Everybody who knows from experience what it means to have a data or program loss on a PC caused by e.g. power failure or hard drive crash will appreciate the Bonator's datasecurity features."

It is important to mention that absolutely no radio link is necessary to enter orders in front of the guests into the Bonator. Radio is only applied for a short period as soon as the entered orders are transmitted in bundled data packages to the bar or into the kitchen.
A special data protocol accepts only 100% correct data transmissions and in case of a break the terminal requests the user by a message on the display to improve his position to the relay-station.
Inserting the handheld terminal into a takeoff and charging rack initiates also an automatic data transmission by wire of the entered orders. So the Bonator inserted permanently into the mentioned rack can be compared with a classic stationary cash register.
"Worldwide the above described features aren’t offered a second time by any other portable cash register producer, and so EGH-Industries wants to dissociate its technology from all other walkie-talkies, which need for operation a permanent radio link to an office-computer, what means that they can be disturbed by external influences at any occasion."

Moreover the high quality standard of the Bonator technology is also ensured by the fact, that only original and proved OEM firmware runs inside the Bonator terminals. So for a distributor it is not necessary to struggle with third party software problems if he wants to offer his customers state-of-the-art technology. 

The Bonator autoControl system has been honoured by an
international jury within the "Mercur 99" award as an innovative technology.
