With detailed order entry at the POS, no bits of paper are misplaced and order requests are not lost in translation.
- Order accuracy improves barista and kitchen efficiency
With improved accuracy of order entry and integrated communication between the POS and the kitchen, food and beverage production become more efficient, reducing waste.
- Detailed table bill tracking
When it comes time to pay the bill, an integrated POS provides an accurate, itemised summation of all that has been purchased, so nothing gets forgotten
- Accurate historical sales reports improves analysis
One of the keys to maintaining a successful hospitality venue is the ability to analyse your sales, so you know what you are doing well and where you can improve. Proper reporting from your POS system is crucial!
- Manage customer loyalty and promotional initiatives
Your POS system can also allow you automate and effectively manage in-house promotions and customer loyalty initiatives. More importantly, you can also measure their success.
- Examine staff performance and increase security
Evaluating waitstaff activity allows you to improve training and incentivise your operation. Your POS also allows you to limit control of specific functions to key staff or management.
- Enhances customer perception of your business
The improvements that an integrated POS system will make to your business will be tangibly evident to your customers. Service speed, accuracy and quality can all be improved with the aid of the right POS technology.

A modern, graphical interface makes POS navigation more intuitive. Training new team members is also simplified.
- Use your POS as an active advertising tool
The latest touchscreen POS terminals can be fitted with LCD customer display panels capable of sharing high quality graphic images, providing you with endless promotional opportunities.
