Finding the right technology for your pizzeria is no easy task, especially one as crucial as the right point of sale. A POS is a big investment that impacts how your business operates. Here are a few of the must-have features to look out for:
Do you use upselling or suggestive selling in your business? Only sometimes? Does it depend on who takes the order? Your POS can help you develop a more systematic upselling approach to increase average ticket totals.Say you average 30 orders a day, and on-screen upselling prompts increase the average ticket total by even $1. That's $30 more per day, or over $10,000 per year! Clearly upselling customers can pay off.
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.
Have you ever stopped to think about all the information that is stored on your POS system? Customer records, tickets, employee information—how much would your business be affected if it all disappeared?
Backing up your restaurant POS data is an important part of your regular system maintenance. Not backing up your data regularly can be costly to your business.
SpeedLine includes a tool called Hot Backup. Working behind the scenes, Hot Backup protects against hardware failure and human error by automatically backing up your data from one station to another.
