New Restaurant Point of Sale (POS) System Eliminates The Middle Man, And This One’s Free!

Let’s go to a restaurant today. We sit down at a table, we wait for a waiter (hence the name “waiter”), and we choose our order from a hand-typed menu. The restaurant has already invested a lot in that short amount of time without even getting an order through.

Now, we place an order for two servings of quattro formaggi spaghetti, but the waiter mistakenly writes up our order for quattro formaggi pizza. Imagine the dismay when we receive our orders. Do we really have to go through this mess? Does the waiter need to have the added stress of taking everyone’s order?

Four of the top 15 reasons why restaurant businesses fail are: poor equipment, too many expenses, low sales, and competition. All of these reasons kind of work hand-in-hand. It can all be attributed to what kind of sales equipment you have, and how ahead you are of the competition. The same applies to the retail industry.

Let’s go back to that same restaurant, with a new point-of-sale (POS) system that allows waiters to quickly take your order and submit it with their iPads. How much work did it take the poor waiter to process all of that? None! The POS system takes care of everything.

What if we told you that there’s a new POS out there that can do this, and you don’t have to pay a dime to get it?

It so happens that, at this moment, Harbortouch is making a special deal, where you get one of their revolutionary POS systems delivered to you with a “modest” 100 percent discount. With such a system, you get:

  • A decrease in the amount of mistakes in the order.
  • Streamlined operation and processes.
  • Less paperwork, since orders are no longer hand-written onto a notepad.

Why try to sell something that’s free? Just go get it and try it out! You have nothing to lose. The increase you’ll have in competitiveness surely outweighs the 5 minutes it takes to fill out an order form.

    As a customer of many restaurants, I find this “solution” a disincentive to eat at an establishment that uses it. I want and expect personal service from a human being when I go out to eat. If there is a problem with that service, I will take that up with the human beings who are managing the establishment, the wait staff, and the kitchen staff. For the same reason I refuse to go through the self check-out lane in the grocery store, I will not use this solution at a restaurant: I do not need nor want to learn another piece of technology when I could simply interact with a human being who has already been trained on it and can proficiently use it on my behalf.

    To me, this all smacks of making your customers become your unpaid employees and I resent it. And, I will demonstrate that resentment by redirecting my cash flow, elsewhere.

      I work for Harbortouch and just want to clarify – The server still takes the order. They are the ones inputting the order on the iPad, not the customer. The Habortouch Tableside solution only streamlines the process of relaying the order to the kitchen/bar; it doesn’t take the server out of the equation.
