"With the POS system we put all the inventory in and if someone orders a Gnocchi Sorentino it automatically takes out what we used…6 oz. of gnocchi, 4 oz. of sauce. It puts all the ingredients together and helps me balance my food costs."

How does your POS transmit orders to the kitchen?

Table Ordering and Management
One of the flagship features of our restaurant POS software is table ordering and management. Easily see what tables are open and which ones are occupied. The server's name and length of time each customer has been at their table are posted on every filled table. Access occupied tables to add to their order as the guests' dinner progresses.
Splitting checks is fast and easy. Use the touchscreen to divide up orders, and split a check as many ways as needed to accommodate your customers. For large groups, order by seat number to keep the entire group on individual tickets. The quicker checks are divided up and closed out, the faster your business will turn over tables.
Manage Inventory and Food Cost
Calculating accurate food costs for prepared meals is critical to understanding the profitability of your restaurant. Detailed recipe management tracks inventory with each serving. For example, each time a hamburger is ordered, two buns, a quarter pound of beef, and a slice of cheese is not only deducted from your inventory, but the cost of the individual items is summed and included as cost of goods sold on your P&L. Stop wasting time calculating the costs of your dishes by hand. And with inventory reporting and control, make sure your raw inventory is going into the business, and not out the back door.
Track Bar Tabs
Increase your sales and profitability by expanding your bar and alcohol business. With the bar tab feature, pre-authorize credit cards so collecting payment is a breeze, and feel at ease because you won't be responsible for a stack of credit cards sitting behind the bar any longer.
Track customers by name or even physical description for when the bar is so loud you can't hear the guy yelling three feet in front of you, or if the name is so strange that you just have to go with "man in red shirt". Add tips, settle up, and move on to serving the next customer.
Tip tracking is a vital part of any restaurant business, so the system you choose needs to be able to do this without fail. Accurate and easy tip tracking is imperative to maintaining a happy and reliable wait staff. Each ticket gives the user an opportunity to add a tip before it's closed, and cash tips can be reported at clock-out. Track tips by server so there's never any question as to who is owed what.
Forced and Optional Modifiers
Modifiers give you the ability to customize orders by adding specific toppings, sides, or special preparations instructions. Forced modifiers are also a great way to structure order entry so the wait staff never forgets to communicate particulars of the order to the kitchen. For example, if a hamburger is ordered, forced modifiers might include medium, medium-well, or well done while optional modifiers might include extra ketchup, lettuce, and bacon.

What a Few of Our Customers Are Saying About Us...
"I checked many different POS systems and companies. POS Nation was the most reasonable and helped me with all my questions. Whenever I had an issue, they responded immediately to it. I never had to wait, and my business has been a success for it."
- Barbara Orona, Sisters Restaurant
"I have to say, in this day and age it is hard to find a company that gets it when it comes to customer service but POS Nation understands what it means to be on top of the situation. From returning calls when needed and even coming on site for special needs, they have exceeded my expectations. I have nothing but great things to say about their ability to handle difficult questions and emergency situations. We will be using them in future ventures for sure."
- Chad Harris, American Cafe
"It helps me balance my food costs… This way on Thursdays before the weekend, I hit a button and it tells me I have two cans of sauce left and I know I have to order that. The shopping list feature on this is better than anything I’ve ever seen. This will help any restaurant succeed. It really is a great system. I don’t think there’s a better one out there."
- Vito Facciabene, Vibano's Trattoria
"Very well mannered staff. Easy to work with. I have been doing business with them for about three years. I have never had an issue with them. Prices were as quoted. Policies and warranties were upheld. I couldn't be happier."
- Carlos Spence, Davis Place Restaurant
"I purchased our POS system just over a year ago from POS Nation and to date I can say it was the best choice for us. I can now see if we are losing money, what discounts are being used by our waitresses, labor vs. sales at any point of the day and inventory control. Take advantage of the tech support in the beginning, they are very helpful. I am still learning all that it can do, but I would highly recommend it."
