myCassaCoffee: what is it? Why is it innovative?
MyCassaCoffee is the simplest and most intuitive but sophisticated telematic checkout on the market. It is easy to use and manage, but also to set and it is completely self-installing.
It is sophisticated because, thanks to the completely graphic interface, it is very powerful and allows, to carry out very complex tasks turning its use almost into a game with simple clicks. But it is not a game. Indeed, one of the most innovative components of the solution is the analysis system that allows you to automatically have all the sales statistics on departments, products, points of sale, periods of the month but also hours of the day.
MyCassaCoffee is compatible with all the new features, like Cashback, Lottery and also solves the obligation of the electronic receipt. However its technological heart and unlimited potential make its updates easy and fast just like all the apps we have on our cell phone.
MyCassaCoffee solves all current legal obligations for all businesses and for the Ho.Re.Ca world of catering and is also an investment for the future because it opens a world of opportunities both in the management of activities and in the way you can interact with your customers.
Who can use it and with what advantages?

MyCassaCoffee allows you to create a much closer relationship with your customers by automatically giving a lot of analysis on consumption and purchasing habits.
It also allows you to manage the latest innovations very easily, such as the receipt lottery. Having the barcode reader that speed up all operations. Let’s not forget that in order to comply with legal obligations, merchants will be entitled to a 250 euro bonus.
Who is MyRistoCoffee for and what advantages does it bring?
MyRistoCoffee is designed specifically for the world of catering and, thanks to the maximum immediacy and efficiency, simplifies all the management tasks of your restaurant, bar, diner or farm, allowing you to always put the customer at the center with his needs which is the trick for success.
With these solutions at hand it’s easy to manage data and all the information gained from analyzing sales, but they also help you to check the stock, coordinate the kitchen, have all orders always under control; in short, a team of virtual helpers at your side.
MyRistoCoffee has all the typical functions of a cash register (issuing receipts, closing cash etc. …) but in addition it can manage stocks, remotely control the various cash points, view sales statistics and handle customer loyalty campaigns.
All these applications can be used by groups at the same time, by a waiter or person who receives orders for a take away. We are also creating a version for the customer himself and also for delivery connected with the big platforms on the market.
What is the difference between the two products?
The two products are aimed at different targets by solving the specific needs of the retail world or the world of Ho.Re.Ca. of catering. The solutions have their heart in the cloud world automating the control of multiple stores and a connection with an administration done centrally or even a connection with the accountant that is another feather in the cap of BitAndCoffee ecosystem.
This automatically enables a remote control of the store itself, but also more sophisticated structures such as franchising chains or groups of stores belonging to the same owner, standardizing the operating modes and allowing the interchange of employees in the various sale points and in the various tasks.
You worked in collaboration with Epson, what was the contribution of each?
The collaboration between us was similar to that which exists in formula one between the car’s engine and aerodynamics to achieve record-breaking performance. Thanks to the sophisticated interface of the Epson fiscal printer, the interaction of MyCassaCoffee and MyRistoCoffee takes place through web services. It is as if the engine continuously provides parameters to the central system to modify the performance of the aerodynamics and this, with all the legislative and operational changes on receipts, is fundamental.
In addition, the Epson structure offers a logistics system that opens the door, not only to the Italian market, but also to the European one However, we will talk about this in the next episode.
