Now we keep the partnership with several POS solution companies and we can offer the customers thousands of varieties of POS models, which can satisfy the customers’ requirements. Our POS solution is flexibility, which can be configured and expanded to meet the varying needs of different types of food service. We have learned from our experience with many types of establishments over the years, that businesses evolve; and what you need today, may not be what you need next year or in five years.
Competition comes in various forms – there are new categories and new concepts being created or evolving all the time. You need to compete with the promotional capabilities of these competitors and leverage your imagination and flexibility.
Most owners of table service restaurants know a POS system will help reduce costs and increase efficiencies, but that is not enough in today’s super competitive environment. Profitability comes from both efficiencies and RevPASH (revenue per available seat hour). This unit of measure is increased by “topline” growth as well. You need promotional tools and staff incentives to drive this kind of growth.
Many table service operators provide delivery and/or takeout as an option for their customers as a competitive edge. This is a different type of food service and your systems need to be able to adapt. Aditionally, you may need make your restaurant available for advance bookings, parties or events.
Restaurant profitability increases exponentially with additional locations and may also provide future franchisee opportunities. You can not be everywhere at once. Centralized management and monitoring may become essential as you grow.
Your operations tend to face “rush” periods of intense activity. Your POS system must be able to take and complete orders and take payments quickly. You also need accurate reporting so that you can staff properly to meet these demands but not have overstaffing when the need is not there. You may also want your system to help you promote a smoother traffic flow, by offering incentives for clients to come in during non-peak times.
If you provide delivery as an option, you need help answering phones and getting orders entered promptly. You also have to juggle your orders to get them dispatched properly and make sure your drivers know where they are going and are not wasting time crisscrossing your territory.
The Quick Service business model’s profitability increases exponentially with additional locations and may also provide future franchisee opportunities. You can not be everywhere at once. Centralized management and location surveillance may become essential as you grow.
For the future, Express Distributor will build its own POS for customers.
