5 Best Features to Look for in a POS System

With the amount of technology going into efficiency and sales, many business owners are looking for new equipment and tools to strengthen their revenue. For example, owners may look into a restaurant POS because of its ability to cut down on wait times and predict inventory supply problems before they happen. These systems can be tailored to a variety of store-specific needs, so it's best to find a POS that works with your current systems.

 

Sales Reports with Analytics - For Any Duration

What if you could pull a sales report on the fly for any store? With a new POS system, it's now possible to get real-time sales reporting with analytical data. This provides you with a snapshot and detailed view of your sales numbers in any time duration, whether you want to see today's lunch hour sales or last weekend's promotional performance.

 

This gives business owners more visibility into what is working for the business as well as how to capitalize on different products with promotions or take advantage of busier times of the week. It can also help with projections, allowing you to hone in on bigger marketing and sales opportunities.

 

Identify Valuable Customers

What if you knew what customers liked the most and what they spent the most time on? If you could identify a string of products that performed the best, you could see how customers respond to different promotions. In addition, your POS can hook into customer data applications, allowing you to capitalize on sales opportunities online. With more buyer data, you are able to understand who your audience is and how to build a loyalty program that will keep them coming back for more.

 

Take Away Manual Inventory Problems

Inventory management is much easier with a modern POS system. You can predict when you'll have inventory problems in the future, which is pretty important for any business. However, with a restaurant, you can automate processes around inventory management within your POS, making sure that you always have Chilean sea bass in stock for those busy nights.

 

You can track and identify items at different levels, accounting for season, price changes, trends, and other factors that will create inventory demand. It will also save your team a ton of work and time.

 

Multiple Payment Options, Including Mobile POS

You can also make it so easy for customers to pay you that they just tap a screen. You can accept multiple payment types as well, including tap to pay options. Your customer experience can change in an instant using a mobile tablet POS. For example, a modern tabletop POS can take your guests orders at a restaurant, and they never have to ask for the check as they can pay at the table and split the payment between all guests at the table.

 

Hook into E-Commerce

Having an online store where people can purchase goods and services is essential for any business in 2019, and now with your restaurant POS, you can instantly take orders from online customers who want to do take or delivery orders. You can add another revenue stream to your business just by upgrading to this type of POS.
