Point-of-Sale

A point-of-sale (POS) system can give you a new level of control over your operations, helping you increase efficiency, boost profits, and fine-tune inventory management. FTC IT Solutions will continue to focus on the restaurant and retail variants of the POS.

Restaurant POS

Is tailored to greatly reduce the amount of time your staff spends in the kitchen and speeds up the order process. The efficiency gains can be impressive. If a restaurant with 20 tables and an average check of $45 can increase turnover by one party per table, that is an extra $900 on a busy night. Additional savings come from reduced shrinkage: servers can’t provide complimentary food to friends without entering them in the system.

In addition to the direct cost savings, restaurant POS systems offer detailed reports that can help you make more informed business decisions. Sales reports help you better predict volume and schedule employees appropriately. Inventory reports help you order the right ingredients week after week, cutting down on wastage. And order reports let you see which items are most popular, which items generate the most profit, and which items you should probably drop from your menu.

Retail POS

Geared towards maintaining a competitive edge and increased profitability, independent merchants need a point-of-sale and retail management tools to serve customers effectively, maintain tight control over business processes and keep pace with competitor.
