The Point-of-Sale (POS) system can become the difference between profit and loss. The right POS system will positively affect the functionality of every aspect of your business, and the wrong POS system will only complicate things.
Pizza is the ultimate food that none can resist (and if someone can, then frankly we think they are weird). The effect that the right POS system has to the success of your company is the same as the effect that piping hot pizza’s create on your customers.
Those fresh-out-of-the-oven pizzas have a huge effect on consumer satisfaction, and that is why it is necessary to keep delivering them.
So to make the lives of all those people, creating and delivering us this ultimate food, below are some of the POS Systems they can use to make their lives better. Like they make ours with pizza!
Toast is an excellent POS system that is web-based. Whether you’re a small pizza parlor or a large chain of Pizza Parlour, Toast is the solution to making your life easier. It is specifically designed to cater to food services. The POS System runs on Android devices which makes it more versatile and affordable in comparison to iOS-based counterparts.
By making a custom online ordering page for your brand of Pizzeria your customers can easily place their orders of takeout and delivery. You can also keep tabs on every delivery you send, to see how efficient the driver routes are and to benefit from smart time estimates.
Based on cost, variance and smart menu engineering reports by our inventory feature you can make valuable decisions about the ingredients that you order. You can perform a diagnose of the variances that occur and see what part of it has gone to waste, over proportioning, theft, etc. and they can then be improved.
Toast will help you know everything about your consumers through every single order they place in the Pizza POS System and even the ones they place in-person will be tracked. This will help you know about your frequent customers, how much they spend, what their pizza preference is, their location and the time intervals during which they visit.
To improve operations further, some of the features can be used
Cut your payment process by customizing your POS buttons. This way you can easily switch the tablet to face customers, and while they decide their order, you can take more orders on your mobile/tablet from the inline customers.
In our menu software, you can easily monitor or make changes to your online menu at any time within seconds! Customize the menu items that are available for online orders and sync your changes automatically.

The system manages inventory, customers data, employee data, keeps a record of all transactions, offers a variety of reports for analysis and provides 24/7 technical support.
The inventory management function, specifically, should be featured because it goes well beyond what you’d expect from a POS System that is mainly aimed at small and medium-sized businesses. You can also set reorder points and utilize a detailing capacity function to assign what, how much, and from which seller to arrange low-cost items. One of ShopKeep‘s current updates included a network stock component, which is a major ordeal for retailers.Clients would now be able to make a parent item and afterward include every one of the varieties and view it on one page.
An extensive reporting suite is offered with the POS system and with the average cost reporting, sales reporting and sales by discount reporting.

ShopKeep costs $69/register per month, and it is a pay-as-you-go POS System that has no termination fee. If you need more than one register than for each additional register, you have to run you $69, but after three registers it drops down to $29/register per month. No service or maintenance fee is required, and the tech fee is already incorporated in the monthly charges. Some nifty extras that can be added to the system include open check functionality, employee management, tip later feature, tableside ordering and more.
ShopKeep does not offer table mapping or the option to add modifiers when it comes to customizing pizzas, but they are currently working on it.

Some extra topping in this one includes, the delivery management feature, online and mobile ordering, digital menu board, kitchen display system and much more.
The drawback to Revel is that the initial setup takes too long. There is a huge list of menus, products, and inventory that needs to be added which can be long and tedious especially in the case of businesses that use unique products. Another drawback is the glitches in its software updates as Revel pushes out updated before they are officially launched.
