iPad POS is a real competitor of an outdated POS systems

Starting my first post with the news about hi-tech technologies in restaurant business, I’m going to inform you further about not only different innovations in this tasty world of eating-out, but also try to get acquainted you with some technologies without which the successful run of this business is impossible to imagine. To such technologies is accounted a POS system, in other words a point of sale system that enables the restaurants managers not only save the time but as well to keep the complete track of the inventory being out of the restaurant itself. In other words, such system records all sales when they are occurred. Hence the potential losses can be easily eliminated and the whole productivity enhanced because the POS system makes all calculations and provides the correct information about the prices.  Such systems are always being developed and being improved. So if one wants his business to stay competitive on the market, he needs to install up-to-date POS system, for example an iPad POS system. In comparison with the traditional ones, it has a number of advantages – it has to, taking into consideration its expensiveness. According to the Michael Grothaus the iPad POS system make the savings approximately 90%. Of course it can be visible only with the time. For instance, if the installation has been already provided, the following advantages can be enjoyable:

–          with an iPad POS system a lot of different useful softs can be easily and free synchs.

–          In addition it offers a robust design, the easiness of usage and the ability to excess to the data of business sales from every device.

–          via such a system the orders can be directly transmitted to the kitchen, the bills are easile paid with the credit cards and get some recommendations for the customers.

With an ordinary POS system it works a little bit different: it has to be updated every four years and in the best case every year because it goes very fast outdated.  But on the other hand a lot of restaurants are working with such systems for a long time and don’t complaint, so the question is aroused if it is really worth to install apps device in such an old business industry, when the basic functions can be provided with an ordinary POS system?

  1. Hi Irina!
    I really enjoyed reading your post. I am definitely a mac fan so the heading about the iPad caught my attention and I wondered how that could be linked to your overall topic of soulfood. And I must say, that I am very happy and satisfied after reading your post. I got a short insight on the POS system and I actually saw, how it could look like. I knew that this kind of technology exists in restaurants, but I had never seen it. Now, after reading your blog, I am even more curious about that sort of technology and I wonder how restaurants like it and how many are using it.
    So well done and I hope to hear more soon!
