Get the best out of your restaurant software solution

Restaurant POS (short for point of sale) is the complete software solution for point of sale in a restaurant. A “good” point of sale, quite often, determines the success or failure of a restaurant; picking the right restaurant pos is a crucial step. Here’s how you can make the most of it.

Pick the best software


There are literally hundreds of different software in Australia today that can be used in hospitality environments. Prices vary from $200 to around $5,000 per license/store. It’s a common mistake for restaurant owners to pick the “cheapest” alternative, instead we recommend going for something Australian based (local) with a local software support centre and a reasonable price of about $3,000 per license. There are a few excellent software, we recommend: Sassco Restaurant POS and Micros.

Support when it matters


Sometimes, even the world’s best hardware fail, not so much software. When hardware goes down, the entire process in your restaurant goes to a standstill. You need to get your system back up and running as soon as possible. The last thing you would want is to call a foreign office offshore and request technical support. What you need is a local support team and a cellular mobile number that you can contact in case of emergencies.

Reporting


Thorough and advanced reporting is crucial in every successful business. As a business owner or a restaurant manager, you need to anazlyze your product sales history, identify your weakest days and/or products and make quick decisions. There is a great reporting App designed by SASSCO (Australian Software providers) that can be downloaded here for iPhone/iPad users and here for Android users. It offers some great reporting and charts crucial to restaurant owners.

Summary


Having been in the point of sale market for over 10 years, we highly recommend that you pick and Australian software with an Australian support team. If you would like to speak with a local point of sales specialist, call Sassco on 1300 789 832.
