IF you’re looking for the perfect POS system for your restaurant then your search is officially over.
While we can’t dive into the over 200 features in their entirety right here, let’s touch on a few of the features that make this system so perfect for the restaurant industry.
How wonderful is it to have a POS system designed to not only help streamline your processes but also enable you to increase sales? Whether the customer is upgrading their order themselves at one of the intuitive self ordering kiosks or the POS is quietly suggesting upsell advice to the server right in the moment, it is easy to increase sales without your customers feeling sold.
Coursing tools allow your servers to provide superior service while also helping to keep back of the house organized. A full spectrum of custom modifiers are just one example of the over 200 features and one of the ways the system helps your staff provide superior customer service. They will be able to quickly locate a detailed ingredient list, including allergy information (gluten…) and images for each item on the menu empowering them to expertly answer any menu question that might arise. Whether sending tickets into the kitchen or closing checks, everything is quick and efficient.
And when service is finished, even more tools help to keep the tables turning. With a bill splitting option built right into the software there’s no worry about mistakes, making splitting the check quick and easy for both your service staff and your customers. Not only can you split a check for your customers but you can also join a group together, or transfer a check with a quick swipe of a finger.
In the restaurant business, any process that slows a server down costs money.
If speed is one of your top priorities then look no further. TouchBistro© isn’t just for busy restaurants though. It’s perfect for play houses and performance halls and really any type of venue that requires quick and efficient drink service. With the mobile POS servers will make quick work of long lines. And, if you’re running a quick service restaurant the quick register buttons are your new best friend. With the touch of a button increase your per person sales as well as your overall sales.
Your servers will be ecstatic to finally have a restaurant POS system that works for them instead of against them.
