Tips For Rolling Out A Restaurant POS System
A POS system is a vital part of running a modern business. After all, point-of-sale equipment is one of the best ways to streamline your inventory, ordering, daily operations, and more. Here at Monify, we tell restaurant owners every single day that their POS service is one of your biggest assets. They support every other part of your restaurant, from customer wait time to better service to reducing cost by providing you with accurate, real-time reporting. You can learn more about the benefits of POS systems and our restaurant services here on our previous blog post, How A POS System Can Grow Your Restaurant Business.
However, if you’re looking to transition to a new POS system or want to integrate new POS equipment, you need to have a roll out plan in order to make a smooth transition and get the most out of your POS equipment. In today’s blog we’ll be sharing a couple general tips for rolling out a restaurant POS system and how our POS services can help you through the process. If you’d like to talk more in depth about the process and your POS options, please get in touch with us today!
Choosing the Right POS System
The roll out process begins with choosing the POS system that fits your needs. Here at Monify, our business service providers are experts at assessing your needs and giving you options that fit your budget. We do more than sell you point-of-sale equipment, we’re also here to help you understand how that system will work within your restaurant.
As you decide, it’s important to know what capabilities and features are most important to your restaurant. All good POS systems and POS services should be:
- Easy to use
- Provide analytics
Beyond these key components, you can also customize your system and POS equipment to fit your particular needs. If you’re curious about the options you have for equipment, check out our the point of sale systems we offer. You’ll find a complete Clover Station as well as smaller, mobile options. And you can always mix and match products to fit your needs.
Like anything related to running a business, you’ll need to be able to be flexible during the roll out and as your employees learn to work with the POS system. You may discover that you need to add a new app to the POS system or relocate a Clover Station because you’re doing a remodel.
A good POS system changes with you to meet your needs, and we sell Clover Point-of-Sale Systems because they’re one of the most flexible POS systems out there. You can add Clover apps to your devices and add functionality that supports your specific restaurant. After all, every restaurant is unique, and you should be able to customize your POS system to fit your needs! Contact us to discuss your POS service options.
We understand the importance of budget when it comes to running a restaurant. Costs of POS systems and POS equipment can vary widely, as can the fees associated with them. For example, we recently shared a blog about how Square’s new pricing structure is cutting into business owners’ profit margins, especially businesses who rely on processing a large volume of lower priced items, like coffee shops.
Our business service providers will talk you through all of your options and make sure you understand what you’re getting for your money. Costs can be difficult to assess, especially at the beginning of the process, but we’ll outline exactly what fees, payment process charges, and other costs you’ll need to consider as you roll out the POS system.
When you choose to partner with Monify, we provide you with 24/7 customer support to ensure that you always have someone available to answer any questions you may have. Having an expert to assist you as you begin using a new POS system is invaluable, which is why it’s one of the POS services we offer our customers. There will always be variables that we can’t expect, even with the best planning. And as all restaurant owners know, things shift and change every day! You need a system that is always up and running so that glitches won’t get in the way of your business. We’re here to assist you in fixing unintended break downs, answer set-up questions, and provide tips for improving your restaurant services.
