That's undeniable no matter how well prepared the menu, or how attractive and talented the staff is the only needs to be a strong business infrastructure. An important part of that infrastructure is a POS system.  A POS system gives you full control of important operational aspects of your restaurant. If you have hesitated to install a POS system or just curious about what a Free POS system can bring to your restaurant, it's time to consider.

 

Sales tracking: POS systems can track high-volume sales, making record reconciliation faster and more accurate. The System also allows you to see which menu items are the most ordered and which items need to be removed from the menu.

• Credit and Debit Card Processing: A POS system eliminates the need for a separate credit/debit card system, making transactions easier and safer.

• Point of Sale Security: By using Restaurant POS System, all employees are responsible for sales made on their identification. Waiters can not alter checks without a password, stop unapproved discounts for friends and family and eliminate the possibility of theft.

A POS system also frees your staff from many time-consuming tasks and allowing them to focus on the most important job: customer service.

• External monitoring: Many restaurant POS systems allow you to log in remotely from any web connection, allowing you to monitor sales, inventory usage and behavior patterns of your staff even when you are not on site. This is invaluable in identifying and addressing any issues that may negatively affect your results.
