If you haven’t upgraded your POS system in the last several years,  take 2 minutes to check this out. 

This blog post outlines the benefits of looking at different POS options to help you better manage operations and increase profits at your restaurant. 

“If It’s Not Broke, Don’t Fix It”

In the restaurant world, getting by on a system that just takes orders and runs simple reports isn’t enough to grow your business. 

Today’s POS systems provide greater efficiencies for back-of-house and are capable of being managed from anywhere with internet access.

Being able to edit menus, add items, track actual/forecasted inventory and revenue data provide owners everything they need to be more profitable.

And finding creative ways to enhance customer satisfaction through loyalty programs (where customers manage their own rewards and owners integrate unlimited marketing promotions through their POS) help restaurants grow. 

Does Your POS System Actually Decrease Costs & Increase Profits?

If your system doesn’t do two or more of the bullet points below, now is the time to think about switching:

  • POS systems that integrate with predictive order management software allow owners to project demand and decrease waste.
  • Pulling real-time analytical data from the cloud enable owners to make more accurate staffing and ordering decisions on the fly. 
  • Online labor scheduling helps owners decrease over-time.
  • Online ordering, loyalty programs and gift card programs help owners develop creative promotions to increase foot-traffic in the restaurant.
