Tablet-based restaurant POS system looks cool and is intuitive to use when compared to conventional POS system. From restaurant owners to customers, chefs to stewards, everyone is head over heels in love with the smartness of these systems. Let’s take a look at the features that are making people go gaga over tablet POS system. Before jumping into the features, many would like to debate the pros and cons of android and iOS operating system. At the end of the day, it all comes down to the developers who built it. Now let’s dive right into the features.
No one likes to spend a fortune on a product if they can get a better product cheaper. Same is the case with restaurant POS system. Why bother spending a fortune on conventional POS system when you can get a better, feature-rich tablet POS system cheaper.
Unlike most of the conventional POS system dealers who try to reap money from your pocket selling overpriced equipment making false promises, nothing can possibly go wrong when setting up a tablet- based POS system as the dealers provide you with the freedom to choose your own tablet.
Unlike conventional POS systems where there is no way to try the equipment live in your restaurant, almost all tablet POS system offering companies offer free product demo ranging from a few days to over a month which saves money as you would not have to pay a single penny during the demo period. The icing on the cake is that you can try a different POS system on the same tablet or use it for your personal use if you’re not satisfied with the product.
If you ever used a conventional POS system, you might be aware of the problems one has to go through to get the service guy to repair your POS system if anything goes awry. Just like Amazon, everyone loves a service provider who cares for you even if a zombie apocalypse occurs. Tablet- based POS systems are going to be the next Amazon for restaurant owners. You don’t have to worry about your business coming to a screeching halt as you will receive remote technical support. There’s also no need for maintenance as the updates can be rolled out over the air without any downtime.
Tablet POS systems may be small in appearance but they pack a big punch, they can be easily integrated with any POS system out there. Being able to monitor a restaurant while being away from it is the feature every restaurant owner desires as they can enjoy their life when they are away without having to worry about their business. Many system also offers robust features like real-time tracking, stock management etc.
Enhanced customer experience:
Everyone loves it when they get more than what they bargained for. The ability to move around with your POS system is a feature that stewards love as it makes the process of order taking fast and, as a result, the processing time of food is reduced to a great extent which in turn makes the chef happy as they can easily manage orders. The customers are also happy as their order gets ready before their expected time. A restaurant is nothing without customers so if the customer is happy the ROI (Return on Investment) on your restaurant’s investment will improve drastically.
P.S. It would be great if you implement a tablet-based POS system as it will make everyone happy (including you), but you are free to pass on the opportunity as well.
