This week, Pizza Marketplace released a new whitepaper on point of sale systems. Your restaurant’s point of sale system is the heart of your technology strategy, and Beyond the Point of Sale: Improving Operations Through Integration walks pizzeria owners through the operational systems that connect in to the point of sale.
POS systems aren’t only for ringing up orders—they are your restaurant’s data hub. The data collected feeds reporting, business intelligence, inventory, security and marketing software with what they need to function.
The point of sale is the restaurant’s data hub. The rich customer, employee, and transactional data it contains can feed a whole range of operational systems—from reporting and business intelligence to inventory, security and marketing.
All too often, though, restaurant operators use their POS for little more than ringing up orders, instead of leveraging the full power of many of today’s POS systems. By ignoring the ability of the POS to integrate with third-party management and ordering tools, operators are failing to take advantage of a restaurant’s full potential, leaving profit dollars on the table instead of in the bank.
