Keeping up with technological innovations is one of the simplest ways of keeping your restaurant competitive. Technology simplifies and improves processes for restaurateurs by introducing key innovations. One such innovation that’s already transforming the restaurant and hospitality industries is mobile PoS. Gone are the days of the cash till at the front desk being the only method of processing orders and payments. Now, mobile PoS gives you complete control in the palm of your hand.
Mobile PoS (mPoS) is one of the recent tech innovations that has helped restaurants target tech-savvy consumers, reduce table turnover time, and boost efficiency. But this isn’t all they can do. If you’ve been waiting to give servers a raise but couldn’t figure out the financial logistics, there is another solution. It turns out these sleek little handheld devices can also increase the tips your servers get.
It’s only an investment if it delivers value to your business. For restaurant owners, return on investment (ROI) is synonymous with restaurant efficiency that impacts the bottom line. More and more restaurateurs are turning to technology to optimise their processes, boost efficiency and increase revenue, and one of the latest trends is mobile PoS.
The mobile tide has risen in the restaurant industry too, and many restaurants are using mobile point of sale (PoS) devices to offer better customer service, streamlined transactions and efficiency and accuracy. A recent report by 451 Research predicts that the global number of installed mPoS devices will increase to just over 54 million units by 2019.
We live in an age when everything is mobile - everything that once required physical objects like maps or cash to be lugged around can now be done with something more convenient and, of course, mobile. Back in the day restaurants relied on a clunky cash register which was usually stationary at the entrance of the establishment. If a restaurant were to rely solely on one of those in this day and age, it would soon be branded as an outdated site because, let’s face it, you need to stay modern to remain appealing to your trendy consumer.
