Want to get paid by guests and customers? Obviously, yes. That’s where point-of-sale (POS) systems come in. But not all POS systems work for everyone. The restaurants, food-and-beverage (F&B), and hotels and hospitality industries specifically have POS systems that do more than just manage payments.

Your POS system includes hardware, the device you use to complete transactions, and software, where all your guest data and sales are stored.

If you want to learn more about restaurant POS systems, then you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, we’ll be looking at why you need a POS system in your restaurant, along with the top POS systems for food and beverage operations.

What is a restaurant POS system? 

A restaurant point-of-sale system combines software and hardware to help restaurants and hospitality operators manage various operations. 

Today, POS systems aren’t just about collecting money from guests. They’re designed to help you run your entire restaurant. They’re also easy to integrate with other software to ensure more operations are easy to manage. 

Essentially, a restaurant POS system lets you collect all types of payments, such as online payments, cash, credit or debit cards, among others. In addition, they help you manage operations like server shifts, taking orders, kitchen operations, sales reporting, and more. 

Different restaurant POS systems have different features. Some will include kitchen management software, while others may have reservation management or inventory management. 

The size of your business, and whether it’s part of a larger F&B group or not, will determine which POS system you can use. 

There are two types of POS software, that’s cloud-based or local-server-based. Most restaurants, including hotel restaurants, use cloud-based POS software because it’s more secure, more affordable, and more convenient.

Benefits of using a POS system for your restaurant

As an F&B business with a growth plan, you need a POS system that easily integrates with other restaurant management software. A POS system that helps you improve your operations and profitability.

For example, if you’re using SerVme’s reservation software, your POS system should easily integrate with it.

SerVme isn’t just restaurant reservation software, it comes with restaurant marketing automation features. SerVme’s software lets you manage your servers’ shifts, design restaurant floor plans, accept commission-free bookings, and more. 

SerVme also lets you measure and analyze guest analytics to improve guest experiences and operations in your restaurant.

By combining SerVme with a POS system, you get a clear view of your guests’ previous orders, guest spending, experiences, payments, and more.

Moreover, you can combine SerVme and your POS system with other software to improve various F&B operations. For example, combining SerVme with Foodics lets you analyze your top-spending customers, frequent visitors, previous ordered items, and more.
