Why buy a POS system for your restaurant/bar?
You can certainly think of many ways a computerized point-of-sale system will help you and your restaurant become more profitable. Here are a just few to consider:
Speed of Service
A POS makes everything happen faster and turning tables is what its all about. As soon as a waiter places an order it is automatically routed to the proper station and preparation can begin immediately and with wireless systems, the order can be sent to the kitchen immediately while the waiter is still on the floor with the customers. The customer gets served in much less time and waiters can spend more time with your customers. Time is money.
Accuracy of Orders
When the waiter places an order it is transmitted to the kitchen or bar and printed on a legible paper tape that is easy for beverage and food prep personnel to read, defining each item with modifiers in bold red print. No more hard to read handwriting or cryptic shorthand; no more forgotten modifiers (causing give away items or unhappy customers); no more angry chefs who can't read an order. The order chit includes the waiter's name and the time of order too.
Security of Cash Handling
A good POS system will never be out of balance. Food and beverage items should not be prepared unless it is on the kitchen check. Once it is on the check, the waiter is responsible for collecting those items. "Waiter banking" is a method of controlling cash so that the waiter is responsible for his or her own sales.
Promotions, complimentary items, and employee meals can all be handled with absolute accuracy, and placed under manager control.
Ease of Training
In the restaurant business, employee turnover is higher than in any other industry, and training new employees can be an on-going problem. A quality POS system with icons and product logos can assist in training new employees into experienced operators in as little as 10-20 minutes. If they can read, and point at the appropriate item on the screen, they can run the system. You can even have a picture of the food or drink on the button.
Probably the biggest problem facing restaurants today is employee theft. Controlling this problem can significantly add to the restaurant's bottom line. According to Nation's Restaurant News, " Up to 30% of all restaurants fail because of employee theft". It also states "almost one out of every two employees will steal from their employer if given the chance". A POS enforces inventory controls to put money back in your pocket where it belongs.
Which of your waiters is making the most money and profit for you? With your current system, do you have any way of tracking the $$? Not just as sales figures, but to assess who sells the most profitable items….who is selling the most desserts …..the most appetizers? Who in your restaurant should be rewarded? With certain systems, this information can be generated in a very short period of time.
How can POS increase your sales? By rewarding waiters for good performance! A simple sales contest can increase sales over 200% on popular items or groups of items. Tracking the contest is easy and automatic with quality software. One of our customers reports a 400% increase in dessert sales when a contest is run. With a great POS system, turning your waiters into salespeople is easy.
A good POS system's reports can always offer you some form of customization to ensure that you generate the type of information that is particularly useful to the decision-making process of your establishment.
Menu Item Performance
What items on your menu are the most profitable, the biggest sellers? What is your daily profit by individual item? How much of an item are you selling in relationship to the main category, i.e., how much of your meat sales are in the form of steak in units, baht and percentages?
Food and Beverage Usage
How many shots of Johnny Walker Black did I sell last week? Last Month? Last Year? How many 8 oz. Filet Mignon? How many did we buy? How many are left in the cooler?
