The 2016 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant Management and POS systems is now available for complimentary access, helping restaurant operators maximize success with next-generation technologies
(RestaurantNews.com) Starfleet Research has announced the release of The 2016 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant Management and POS Systems. With expert insights and unbiased recommendations for deploying next-generation solutions to reduce costs, increase revenues and improve guest satisfaction, this 40-page buyers guide is required reading for any restaurant owner or operator.
According to the research, almost one-quarter (24%) of operators who have not purchased a new restaurant management and point-of-sale (POS) system within the past three years plan to do so in the next 12 months. Part of the impetus involves data security compliance.
The growing need to accept new payment methods, including chip-and-pin cards and e-wallet apps, also ranks as high priority. So, too, are the benefits of migrating from on-premise installation to cloud-based deployment.
POS mobility, which enables tableside ordering and payment processing, is also influencing purchase decisions. For some, the biggest selling points are improvements in features and functionality. These are evident in the built-in inventory control and labor management capabilities as well as the marketing, guest relationship management and loyalty program management capabilities.
Just as important, according to the research, are the robust data analysis and performance reporting capabilities that many solutions now offer and which can help them better manage their operations and identify more opportunities for improvement.
What key concepts should buyers keep in mind when researching restaurant management and POS systems? What considerations should influence their purchase decisions? How can not only fine-dining restaurants, but also quick service and fast casual operations, cafes, bars, and even cafeterias, maximize the value of the investment?
Written by leading industry experts, The 2016 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant Management and POS Systems addresses these and many other questions, helping prospective buyers make the right choices.
The research is based on data collected from 162 qualified survey respondents across different types of food and beverage services organizations. The content was independently produced, providing for unbiased, fact-based information. The underwriters of this Smart Decision Guide include the following industry leaders: Agilysys, Infor, Matre’D, Oracle Hospitality and TouchBistro.
