The POS Revolution is Here … and Here … and There Too!
While your customers were driving the kids through fast food restaurants, playing
short order cook or turning out comfort food at home, there’s been a revolution
brewing in restaurants, quick service cafes, taverns, coffee houses, bars, cocktail
lounges and high-end dining venues. You knew it was coming someday but who
knew this revolution would be so positive for you and reach your business site so
Mobile is coming!
The revolution is replacing traditional computer-oriented point of sale (POS)
system plus servers’ order pads and pens with mobile POS. The first volleys of
this revolution began a couple years ago and now it is sweeping the country, one
diner at a time: eateries of all sizes and types are converting to mobile POS
because the results are phenomenal: lower credit card fees, greater customer
satisfaction, fewer errors, faster table turns.
What’s not to like?
Results like these have filled the dreams of restaurateurs for decades. In a
margin-sensitive economy, this revolution delivers a basket of benefits including
greater productivity from dining room to kitchen, integrated inventory tracking and
ordering, less waste and the granddaddy of them all – lower credit card fees with
simpler processing. Consider this side benefit: an easy-to-administer
rewards/loyalty program, specials and gift cards to encourage word-of-mouth
advertising and repeat visits. Plus this trade not-so-secret, the mobile POS
systems are less expensive to install and maintain, easy to learn and make the
whole process of running a restaurant business easier from soup to nuts.
Replacing the order pads and pens with mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones
and iPods automates and digitizes the last analog outpost in eating venues – think about it: fast food restaurants have been POS computerized for years. Mobile POS devices are simply bringing the same advantages, convenience and efficiency to the thousands of sit-down restaurants across North America. US non-fast food restaurants are reporting about a 15 percent increase in revenue per guest with electronic tableside ordering. Customer satisfaction measurements are showing roughly a 22 percent increase with similar boosts in return visits.
