POS Systems

Using a POS system, restaurants can take care of their order taking and order processing in one system. Orders are entered into the POS system display and automatically delivered to the kitchen to their own display. Final checks can be printed once an order is completed, and orders including any additions or subtractions, can be easily pulled up quickly for payment. The POS system can be configured in many ways, to make it a perfect match between your menu, options and prices. The POS system can also work directly with the inventory system, so as orders go out, an automated system is in place for reordering supplies.

Credit Card Payments

Payments are also often processed using technology. Since very few people pay with cash and most businesses avoid accepting checks, taking credit cards is the way most restaurant bills are paid. With a credit card processor you can accept credit card payments and get instant approval.

Restaurant Software
