Choosing the Right POS for Your Restaurant

From tabletop tablets and online ordering, to mobile apps and self-service kiosks, technology is extremely important to restaurant customers.

Innovative point of sale (POS) solutions help you meet these expectations while also introducing added benefits to your business. In fact, nearly 90% of restaurant owners agree an upgraded POS can raise staff productivity and streamline business performance.¹

Not sure which POS is right for your restaurant? Start with these tips.

  • Set your budget. Before starting your search, determine your budget. Can’t put an exact number on it? Don’t sweat it. A general estimate is guaranteed to help speed up the process.
  • Identify pain points. Figure out what’s working in your restaurant’s existing POS system — and what’s not. From there, you can decide which POS capabilities will help fill the gaps.
  • Do a demo. You never know how a POS system will hold up until you test it. Getting up close and personal with your top choices may shed light on which is the best fit.
