Using the right restaurant Point of Sale system can make managing a restaurant a lot easier. The problem is that many restaurants use POS that’s outdated and lacking features. If you think you might be in this category, then check if you have these features:
Simple layout for easy usage
POS can help organize your restaurant whether it’s a busy Saturday night or you’re stocking up on inventory. Here’s a list of simple tasks you can do with POS:
- seat management
- waiting list
- take-out and delivery modules
- menu prompts
- specific deliveries
Customer data and analytics
Apart from taking care of simple tasks, POS can also provide lots of data. You can track repeat customers and see if there are any patterns in their behavior. You can use this information to plan more effectively. For example, by knowing the patterns of customers, you can schedule the right about of employees and order a corresponding amount of inventory for the next week.
Kitchen printing and video displays
POS isn’t just used by the hostess anymore. It also keeps the kitchen in sync with what’s happening on the other side of the restaurant. It makes communication easier and managers know how the kitchen is keeping up with food orders.
Support for deliveries
When you’re placing a new order, you can take care of everything with POS. Your inventory is organized so you know how big of an order you have to place. In addition, the order is delivered right to your front door. With POS, you don’t have to take a few hours out of the day to place an order. It just takes a few minutes.
You may have a POS system that doesn’t have access to all of these features. If that’s the case, then consider updating your POS for easier restaurant management.
