The best strategy for implementing POS software is to choose a system that perfectly suits your F&B business. For instance, if you have an existing POS hardware in your restaurant, you may want to extend that technology’s lifetime while making it easy to add new features such as mobile payments.
If you plan to buy a new POS terminal, you can choose to deploy cost-effective consumer technologies such as mobile phones, tablets, or even PC. It would help if you had a POS solution that is easy to use by your staff and customer at the same time.
The ultimate goal is to improve the customer experience whenever they interact with your restaurant. For instance, when they choose an item, modify it, and make a purchase.
Right now, we will break down how Mamak implements three crucial features of the POS system to increase the existing system’s efficiency.
