What does PDQ Machine actually mean?
PDQ stands for ‘Process Data Quickly’ and was the name originally used for a card machine. People still use this term, but they are also known as chip & pin machines.
These machines have evolved over the years and we now offer simple PDQ machines, but also more advanced machines that contain apps allowing you to add product ranges or menu items.
While standard PDQ machines just allow you to take payments, our new machines allow you to send orders to a kitchen & tale card payment immediately. Then you can print receipts and full orders to give to customers. See our smart pos & epos devices here.
