Are you an owner of a bar or restaurant? If yes, are you running any POS software to better manage your business?
One really tedious task for all owners at the end of the day includes calculating and summing up the total sales made for the day. Imagine if there are a total of 500 customers in a day. We are talking about manually calculating 500 bills in a day just finding out the total sales made for the day. This problem will not exist if your bar or restaurant is running on POS software with an integrated inventory system.
There are many advantages of running POS software which includes:
- Track orders
- Check totals
- Manage payments and changes
- Manage customer details
- Manage tables and seatings
- Manage time clock
Any of the following food and beverages (F&B) businesses can benefit from implementing POS software:
- Neighborhood Bar & Grill
- Fine Dining
- Fast Food
- Pancake House
- Chinese Restaurant
- Mom ‘n Pop
- Drive In/Thru
- Steak House
- Japanese Steak House
- Pizza / Italian
- Coffee Shop – Cafe
- Wireless Handhelds
- Bar / Night Club
There are many POS software out there in the market today. Some can even cost up to $40,000 to implement. Unless your F&B outlet makes a lot of money, it’s best to start off with something which is more affordable.
