A point of sale (POS) system is critical to the successful operation of a restaurant, but shopping around for a new POS can be a challenge. With so many point of sale solutions on the market, you might not know what you need or even where to begin
this guide has everything you need to get started
“Simple To Manage.”
There are dozens of restaurant POS systems and hundreds of features all designed to make work easier for hospitality staff. The challenge is finding a happy- medium between the features you need and the features you don’t.
Generally speaking, the more you spend on a restaurant POS system, the harder it is to manage its many features. Larger, more sophisticated POS systems require a professional to install it and train your staff to use it.
Regardless of the size of your restaurant or the number of employees that you keep on staff, your POS system should make it easy to manage basic tasks like placing orders, splitting checks, reordering drinks, a quick check out, etc.
Reporting and Analytics
Fortunately, RanceLab restaurant POS systems enable your management team with Key Performance Indicator (KPI) reports like:
sales by item, time and department
sales vs. labor costs
Website and Online Ordering
Whether you choose to employ a third-party integration or maintain a website with an ordering feature, your restaurant POS system should be able to accept orders, confirm their completeness, including payment options and forward the order to the kitchen (KDS).
You can also upgrade you existing POS by adding Epson POS receipt printers and accessories, like the new SunPos Sol 802 Series Thermal Receipt Printer which is not only cloud ready, but also offers:
enhanced connectivity options
support for online order printing, drive-through, and curbside pick up
