Why you need to bin your old cash register
Reports As a restaurant owner, it is crucial that you are able to monitor the performance of your restaurant regularly. If you didn’t monitor your restaurant’s performance regularly, you will limit the success of your restaurant as you will be unable to see where your restaurant needs improving and if there are any issues in your restaurant. Producing a sales report with an old cash register is an extremely long and painful procedure as you will have to calculate it manually using your previous receipts. This will take up a lot of your time and will not be accurate as human error may affect the calculations. This shows that you will not be able to get an accurate outlook on the performance of your restaurant. At EPOS Direct, our EPOS systems are designed to produce accurate reports so that you can see all different aspects of your performance including: stock levels, sales, costs, profit and loss. Stock Count As a restaurant owner, you will have the mammoth responsibility of counting a wide range of products every single day. When you are using an old cash register, this will take up a large amount of your time as you will have to do it manually. If you have to count your stock manually, you may struggle to find time for other important issues which could limit the success of your restaurant. Remember, if you count your stock manually, you may make mistakes which could lead to your stock being incorrect. This will cause inconveniences as you could run out of stock before you have ordered more. At EPOS Direct, we subtract the inconvenience of counting stock from your life by providing you with an automated stock control feature. This means that every time a product is sold, it will be subtracted from the stock number. So, at the end of the day, the stock number will be ready for you to use. As a restaurant owner, you will always be busy managing your restaurant which means that you will not have the time to constantly check your stock levels. This is why your EPOS system will automatically email an order to your supplier as soon as your stock reaches the minimum level. This will ensure that you always have sufficient stock to feed your customers. Waiting Times When you are running a restaurant, one of the biggest obstacles you will have to overcome is long waiting times. If you leave your customers waiting for a long time, they will not come back to your restaurant. If you are using an old cash register, you will struggle to serve your customers quickly due to the cash register being slow. This means that you will keep the customers waiting which will limit the level of customer service that your restaurant can offer. If you regularly have slow service, customers will begin to avoid your restaurant which will limit your sales and profit. At EPOS Direct, our EPOS systems are designed with fast processing speeds to ensure that you are able to serve your customers quickly. This will keep your customers satisfied which will encourage them to become loyal and repeat purchase. It is important to remember that a quick service can help boost your sales. Repair As a restaurateur, the last thing you will want is to be unable to serve customers as you will lose a lot of business and could possibly gain a bad reputation. However, if you are using an old cash register, you run the risk of your cash register breaking which will prevent you from being able to satisfy your customer’s needs. If your old cash register breaks, you will not receive any support or maintenance from the company that you bought the system from. This will mean that your cash register will not be able to be fixed which will prevent you from serving customers for an extended period of time. This shows that an old cash register can seriously limit the sales and profit of your restaurant. When you purchase from EPOS Direct, you will be provided with lifetime support which is open 24/7. This means that whenever you have an issue, the technicians will have the skills and experience to find an effective solution quickly. This shows that when you buy from EPOS Direct, you will always be able to feed your customers which will enable your sales to continue to grow.
