Restaurant POS Software Buyers Guide

What is restaurant point of sale (POS) software?

Restaurant point of sale (POS) software offers POS solutions for the restaurant and bar industries in the UK. This software facilitates ordering, billing, reporting, accounting, table tracking, and receipt printing for restaurants and bars. Hardware such as computers, monitors, and printers is often included in the purchase price of restaurant POS software.

What are the benefits of restaurant POS software?

The benefits of restaurant POS software are:

  • Streamline ordering and operations: A central restaurant POS software system for all servers—with the ability to automate tasks like splitting checks—can save time, headaches and decrease order mistakes, resulting in fewer unhappy UK customers.
  • Increase revenue opportunities: Adding online ordering and table reservation capabilities through restaurant POS software means even more people can access your product, resulting in increased sales.
  • Improve customer service: Tracking loyal customers and offering perks like discounts and anniversary gifts with loyalty cards can turn your best customers into evangelists for your restaurant/bar.

What are the typical features of restaurant point of sale software?

Here are some of the most common features of restaurant point of sale software:

  • Order management: Process customer orders and generate bills digitally, making it easier to track sales and catch mistakes.
  • Separate bills: Generate separate bills for meals and combinations of single items within a larger order.
  • Online ordering: Accept and process customer orders received online (e.g. via food delivery apps and websites). Even if you don't employ delivery staff, these third-party services will order, pick up, and deliver the food, generating more sales with little additional work.
  • Delivery management: Manage order deliveries from start to finish, ensuring on-time customer delivery.
  • Table management: Input your floor layout and manage bookings, orders, and bills for all tables. Ensure waiters/waitresses are assigned to the correct tables.

What are some important factors to consider when purchasing restaurant POS software?

Things to consider when purchasing restaurant POS software include:

  • Consider the big picture for your restaurant: When evaluating restaurant POS software, consider looking for a solution that not only manages a single restaurant but also simplifies ordering and table management for an entire chain of restaurants/bars. Look for software that streamlines inventories or deliveries across multiple locations in the UK and consider integration capabilities with other restaurant management software. Shortlist products that not only meet your current business needs but support future expansion.
  • Make ease-of-use a priority: No matter how sophisticated your restaurant software solution might be, it's only as powerful as the people who use it. Make sure the restaurant POS software you choose is easy for employees to use and that you have someone in your team of staff who can manage the new system and train others to use it effectively.
  • Check to see if the POS is designed explicitly for restaurants: A lot of general POS software bill themselves as suitable for use in a restaurant. While it's true that many add restaurant-specific features, depending on your needs, your restaurant may require a tool built for your industry from the ground up.

Relevant trends in restaurant POS software are:

  • Wearable technology makes POS purchases seamless: Wearables like Disney's MagicBand may seem relegated to expensive experiences for now, but wearable computing will soon change how restaurants interact with customers and accept payment. Imagine restaurant POS software that can tell which customers are in which seat at which table, and charge them for their food individually and automatically without a single credit card passing hands. According to Capterra research, 54% of small and medium-sized businesses use or plan to use wearable technology within the next one to two years.
  • Self-service kiosks cut down on labour costs and misheard orders: We're already starting to see this model in high-tech airport eateries. Still, as minimum wage costs rise, self-ordering kiosks will become more attractive and be implemented more. One associated benefit for restaurant owners is eliminating miscommunication between customers, servers, and kitchen staff; orders can be sent straight from the customer to the kitchen, increasing efficiency and reducing mistakes.
