Restaurant POS Software
We recommend RPOWER for full-service restaurants. Our restaurant point of sale software is ideal for restauranteurs looking for robust features and customization. Learn if RPOWER is the best POS software for your restaurant.
Order by Table Management
Manage the Entire Floor From Your System
RPOWER lets you customize your floor layout and manage individual tables within the POS system. Whether you operate a dining room, bar, patio, or all three, you’ll always have a live view of your restaurant. Each table is identified as vacant or occupied, and if occupied, the server’s name is displayed along with the length of time the customer has been at the table.
Once a table is filled, place orders by the seat to ensure each guest receives exactly what they ordered. Easily add to order throughout the meal. Hold and fire orders as needed, and when the meal is complete, split checks by guests in seconds to ensure happy customers.
Quick Communication Means Faster Turnover
Once an order is placed, the ticket is sent to the kitchen via a remote printer, which creates a paper ticket. You can even print menu items to different kitchen printers so that orders are sent to the right station. For example, all drink orders can be sent to the bar while all food orders are sent to the kitchen. Print modifiers in red to clearly distinguish different selections and add notes for allergies or special preparation instructions.
If you’d like to stay away from printing tickets, a kitchen display system (KDS) presents orders on a monitor for the kitchen staff to see. Orders can be cycled through and bumped off the monitor when they are complete. The KDS can only display eight orders at once, and because of this, they’re primarily used by fast-food and fast-casual restaurants.
Tip Tracking and Employee Management
Always Know Who’s Owed What
Track tips within your system to easily and quickly allocate compensation to the wait staff. Use your software to manage employee time and attendance with clock-in and clock-out features.
Assign employees to a job or profile that limits their ability to perform certain functions or access sensitive information on the POS. Requiring manager approval for discounts and voids is a great way to ensure your financial security.
Set compensation rates and run your entire payroll through your point of sale system.
Let Us Program Your Menu For You
We can program your entire menu into the software for easy order entry. Your staff can identify menu items by pictures to increase the speed and accuracy of entering orders. Divide your menu by sections — for example, appetizers, mains, sides, and drinks — to keep everything organized for the wait staff.
The set forced modifiers that require entry before proceeding with the order, which helps the wait staff remember to ask all the necessary questions. For example, when a steak is ordered, the next screen requires the waitress to select rare, medium, or well done.
Modifiers allow customers to add sides, toppings, and other requests to order. Modifiers can also be customized with descriptions such as light and extra so when a hamburger is ordered, for example, your staff can choose from a variety of optional modifiers including ketchup, tomato, bacon, and cheese. Additional costs can be tied to modifiers as well.
Food Costs at Your Fingertips
As ingredients and portions are built into a recipe, the proportional food cost is added to the menu item. If ground beef costs eight dollars per pound and each hamburger calls for half a pound of beef, then the system knows that each hamburger includes four dollars worth of ground beef. When a hamburger is ordered, four dollars of costs are added to your P&L.
Continuing the example, when a hamburger is ordered, the system automatically deducts half a pound of beef from the inventory so an accurate count is always kept.
One of the top reasons restaurants fail is that they don’t understand the profitability of each dish. That 25 dollar pork chop may sound profitable, but after 15 ingredients are added, you may actually be selling it at a loss. Recipe tracking also lets your chefs and bartenders easily access guides for preparing any order.
Increase Your Exposure and Sales
RPOWER allows businesses to fully integrate their website with the software so online orders are automatically pushed down to the system. You won’t need an employee to answer the phone!
We’ve partnered with GrubHub, Seamless, TakeOut, Menu Drive, and other online delivery platforms to offer online ordering integration. Don’t have a website? No problem. Already have a website? Just as easy. Either way, we’ll help you upload your menu to the web.
