What I discovered about Restaurant POS Solutions
I never thought that I would integrate technology into my restaurant business one day. It was not that I didn’t know the importance of this emerging concept in the business world; it was only that I was one of the people who believed in running my business the traditional way. However, a close friend told me about the restaurant iPad POS solutions and how it had helped him in his business and I decided to give it a try. This article gives you some insight into what I discovered. 1. The System is Not Hard to Use I previously feared that the program would be too hard for my employees to understand and use efficiently. However, it took me only a few days to learn how the system works and to train the people working for me. The visual interface is intuitive and very user-friendly. My wait-staff was very happy with the new point of sale system because it was straightforward and made their work easier.
2. I Can Streamline My Efforts as a Manager One of the tough tasks that I was facing was how to come up with periodic reports. You see, I need these reports so that I can make decisions regarding the items to buy and what type of budget to put in place. Previously, I had to collect all the receipts and invoices in order to make such reports. When I got the iPad POS system, I couldn’t believe my eyes! My work had been made so easy because at just the touch of a button, all my reports could be generated automatically. The best thing is that the reports are produced in just a matter of seconds, which allows me to make important decisions quickly based on available facts.
3. Employee Management Made Easy If you have been in this business, then you know how important it is to manage your employees efficiently. Previously, I had to move up and down just to ensure that my employees are at their stations at all times. This was hard and tiresome for me and at the end of the day I could go home when I am totally worn out. The IPad POS system made everything easy for me. I can now schedule, track my employees, as well as perform all payroll tasks for all my employees with just a single system.
4. My Customers are Happier As you know, happy customers will come back again and again. The use of this system has earned me accolades from all my customers because of better services offered. Once the customer is seated, he or she is offered a digital menu to pick what she desires to eat. The order is then sent to the cloud which is then posted to the POS tablet. The tablet then alerts the wait staff as well as the staff in the kitchen who then start preparing the order. When the meal ordered gets ready, the wait staff is alerted through the same system. The food is then picked and delivered to the table. Billing is then done at the table. This has made the whole process fast and convenient for the customer. For sure, the restaurant iPad POS solutions have made my business grow.
