Your Restaurant Needs a POS System. Here’s Why (in Plain English).
A Point of Sale (POS) system allows you to place orders, track sales, manage inventory and track revenue and profits. It is a combination of hardware—iPads, terminals, ticket printers, etc.—and software (technology) that is designed to simplify all of the tasks required to operate a successful establishment. Here are five key benefits that POS systems provide:
THEY IMPROVE YOUR TEAM’S PERFORMANCE.
POS systems greatly reduce human error in both the front of the house and back. There are fewer misinterpretations of handwritten orders, which lends to less incorrectly made drinks and dishes and less waste. We all know less waste means increased profit!
EFFICIENCY IS IMPROVED, AS WELL.
An entire table’s order—drinks, appetizers and entrees—can be inputted into a single POS machine at once. This order is then communicated to the bar for drinks and the kitchen for food via tickets that are clear and neatly ordered. The kitchen will know what dishes to make first (i.e. appetizers) and which to be made second. This efficiency allows servers to spend more time providing great customer service.
HASSLE-FREE CREDIT CARD PROCESSING.
NexTouch offers POS systems with built-in, secure, credit card processing. This eliminates the need to purchase separate processing systems and makes credit card acceptance easier, faster and more secure.
DETAILED BUSINESS REPORTING.
Every order input into a POS system is recorded in real time. This allows managers and owners to easily generate detailed reports on sales, credit card transactions, cash transactions, inventory, labor costs, food costs and profit and loss. These reports can be generated and accessed from any location at any time.
Sadly this is a common problem for many operators. Servers can neglect to charge customers or customers can walk out without paying. POS systems can track exactly what was ordered (customers have no way of getting a dish or drink without a ticket generation), who it was ordered by and if it has been paid for, thus eliminating many opportunities for loss.
NexTouch customers are often looking for easy to use, time-saving solutions when selecting their POS system. We offer a variety of systems that can be tailored to your restaurant’s needs. We believe in offering great service, along with leading-edge technology. Both go a long way in helping your restaurant achieve its full potential.
