PoloPay uses QR codes at tables and rooms, to allow guests to easily browse, order, and pay for food, drinks, and services, while being presented with visually appealing images of dishes and their ideal drink pairings. This not only makes it incredibly easy for customers to order, but also gives staff a break during peak hours.

The platform eliminates the issue of unattended parties and reduces checkout times to mere seconds, seamlessly complementing the warm hospitality experience. Additionally, the establishment benefits from valuable insights and analytics, enabling them to make data-driven decisions.
