One industry we supply a lot of duplicate and triplicate pads to is the restaurant and catering industry. These fast-paced environments require something very unique from their NCR Pads. Below we take a look at that makes a good waiter’s pad.
The binding, or glue, on a waiter’s pad is all about balance. The glue needs to be strong enough to hold all the sheets in place during general use of the pad – missing slips in a restaurant can cause untold havoc. However, if the glue is too strong and the sheets tear when they are pulled, instead of coming off cleanly, then this can also cause a number of issues.
The Carbonless Paper
If the paper used is of poor quality then the writing will not cleanly pass down between the sheets. This could lead to misunderstood orders, a delay in the cooking process and ultimately incorrect orders. This is obviously one of worst situations for a restaurant to be in.
A waiter’s pad is constantly being pulled in and out of a waiter’s pocket. This means that is constantly taking a beating. If the pads are not constructed properly then they would start to fall apart in a very short amount of time, which would simply burden the staff and maker room for mistakes. At NCR 4 Less we put quality of construction above all things.
A waiter’s pad may seem like a throw away item and an item that does not require any attention. And in a certain way they shouldn’t attract attention. If you’re paying attention to your pads it is probably because they are poorly made and are not working as you need them to. A good waiter’s pad will be an item that you don’t even notice, because it is performing so admirably.
