Benefits of POS Item Modifiers

Benefits of POS Item Modifiers

Forced_POS_Item_Modifiers

One of the most overlooked functions in your Restaurant POS System is the item modifier functionality. So many restaurant pos systems claims to have food modifier functionality in their restaurant point of sale. It becomes problematic when you bought a retail pos system to be used in your restaurant or quick service restaurant.

So let us have a look what is a food modifier and what it does. A food modifier is option that pops up, when working in the menu order screen. Modifiers could be forced or could be a choice.

Forced modifiers allow you to force the server to pick from a preset list of suggested or acceptable items on the menu. They are usually added to the main entrée or a choice of food or beverage that requires specific preparation instructions. This feature forces a set number of item choices to be chosen by the server from the order screen. When Forced Modifiers are attached to a particular product, the server will not be allowed to continue the order until a modifier is chosen or they exit out of the Forced Modifier screen. Forced Modifiers will be attached at the product level.

Exception Modifiers allow you to pick from a preset list of suggested or acceptable items under Exception Modify tab on order screen. This feature is similar to Forced Modifiers with the exception of the server being “Forced” to choose a selection. The server now has options to modify an item or exit modifications and continue with the order.

Benefits of item modifiers are:

Modifiers ensure that orders are correctly placed and send to the kitchen. So cooking instructions and choices are sent correctly to the kitchen. Keeping your customers happy.

Save money as orders are placed correctly as received from customers. No more wastage.

Inventory depletion plays a vital role in the execution of choices during the ordering process.

When using restaurant online ordering modifiers ensure the correct ordering from customers, ruling out incorrect orders, and wasting stock and enhancing the customer experience.

5 Benefits of Tablet POS

Reduced upfront and long-term costs

Compared to a traditionally integrated point-of-sale, which can cost tens of thousands in upfront fees for equipment and setup, a tablet POS system relies on standard computing equipment, such as an iPad or Android tablet or Windows tablet. In addition to the cost of the equipment, traditional POS systems typically charge a software license per register and then a yearly maintenance fee on top of that. In some cases, you have to pay for upgrades on top of it. That doesn’t include support or training, which can be as much as R 3000 per day. The problem with this model is that if you’re unhappy with your purchase after a few months, you’re out the full cost upfront. The new tablet systems operate on a SaaS (software-as-a-service) model, which means that you often pay nothing up front and then pay a small fee each month for the use of the software. It is common to pay as little as R 800 per month to get started. Also, if you don’t like what you signed up for, you can usually cancel at any time. So it put pressure on the POS software vendor to up their service.

Ability to manage your business on the go

If you don’t want to sit in your office every evening scrubbing the daily sales records, you won’t have to. With many tablet POS solutions, you can see sales, inventory, and customer analytics in real time from any mobile device. Such tools provide greater flexibility and transparency, helping you to streamline your business so that you can feel confident that everything is under control when you step away from your store. Imagine knowing who your best customers are even when you are not present. In addition you can do stock takes with a tablet and input the data life. No need for expensive scanners to input data. With managements apps one could know what is happening in the store without being there.

Free Instant upgrades, back up and support

Since the software of tablet POS providers is based in the cloud, new features, as well as security upgrades, are pushed through to your system instantly. There is no need to hire a consultant or have anyone come to your store since these upgrades are done remotely without any downtime to your business. This can be a huge productivity and cost advantage over traditional systems, which often require onsite expertise and significant business downtime. Support is also given on the spot as there is no need to dial in with remote control software. All support and changes to the point of sale happen in the cloud.

Load shedding

With the current electricity grid in South Africa constantly under pressure Tablet POS handles load shedding with a breeze. Not only do you stay open for sales, but your StorePoint Tablet POS offers offline redundancy should you have no power and your router is off. So your downtime is limited to the minimum. In addition to this, you save cost as a tablet does not need an uninterrupted power supply (UPS). So it means another saving. Normally when electricity is restored after load shedding there is a chance that a power spike might damage your equipment. One thing we have definitely experienced lately at our support desk. With Tablet POS no damage and always open for business, while your competition is closed or must invest in expensive low noise generators or inverters.

Seamless Integration with Helpful Tools

While legacy systems don’t tend to play well with others, tablet platforms easily integrate with many third-party tools. Many of the new tablet POS systems offer seamless integration with marketing tools such as loyalty programs, email campaigns, and rewards, as well as critical business tools like accounting software like SageOne, Xero Accounting, QuickBooks and payment processing like ZipZap. This allows you to manage your entire business all from your POS. New tools are being created for tablet POS systems every day, which means that your job will get easier and easier over time. All of these advantages add up to an attractive business proposition. Lower costs, higher productivity, and reduced risk are all significant contributors to your business’s bottom line. As always, we are available at Retail and Restaurant Business Systems to answer any questions you may have about upgrading to a new tablet POS system. Gives us a call or Whatsapp us on +27764293989
