Top POS Systems
When it comes to deciding which POS system to use for your restaurant the choices can seem a bit overwhelming. If you do a little research you will see that there are well over a hundred different systems that you can choose from. There are also different features that come along with some but not others and then you have to think about the software that you need to make the systems actually run. Thinking about all the details is enough to make one person go crossed eyed. While the best way to find out the right system for you is to actually try it, it is sometimes good to do some research first. The systems that are described here are the “Best POS Systems of 2012″ according to TopTen Reviews. TopTen Reviews is a site that does research and gives their professional advice about products.

9.United Bank Card
10.Dell Point of Sale
Top Ten used different criteria to evaluate POS systems and determine the ones that they found to be the top ten. A restaurant can use the same criteria in order to find which one would best for their business. They looked at start up costs, after purchase care, mobile/wireless technology, hardware, and software. It is important to take a look at all of this and more details in order to secure that you are purchasing a good system.
Start up costs can be a big factor in determining if a restaurant can afford a system. Depending on the extent and quality of that system it can range from a few hundred to a few thousand to get a system install in a restaurant.
After purchase care is another important detail to take into consideration. If a restaurant has a problem with their system, it is good to know if they are going to be receiving any help or be left on their own to figure out how to fix the problem.
Many restaurants are now considering using mobile technology to help with their business needs. A POS system that can be used on a mobile device is something that is appealing to those owners on the run that need to be able to view their system on their mobile devices. It is also helpful if restaurants want to their customers who have mobile devices to be able to view and use their online ordering.
As a restaurant, it is important to look at both the hardware and software that will be installed. The hardware should be easy to use and not slow down employees. Software should also be easy to use and it is helpful to know if and when you can get support if you need it.
A restaurant should do a lot of research and weigh all the options before picking a system. There are a lot of things that go into getting a POS system. It needs to be easy, effective, and adaptable to change. Restaurants are ever evolving and so should their POS system. Getting one that fits a restaurant ensures that it will continue to help them provide excellent service to their customers and stay on the edge of the technology for their business.
