Buyers' Guide to Restaurant POS Systems Now on the Menu for Improving Restaurant Operations and RevenueStarfleet Media today announced the release of The 2015 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant POS Systems. Featuring research data, analyst insights and expert recommendations for deploying next-generation POS systems to streamline restaurant operations, reduce costs, improve customer satisfaction and increase revenues, this 39-page buyers’ guide is required reading for any restaurant owner or manager who seeks to bring these benefits to their business.

According to the research, almost one-quarter (23%) of restaurateurs who have not purchased a new POS System within the past 3 years plan to do so in the next 12 months. Part of the impetus involves new data security requirements, including the chip-and-pin regulations that go into effect later this year. Unless restaurateurs are EMV compliant, they can be held liable for fraudulent charges.

The allure of mobility, which enables tableside ordering and payment processing, is also driving purchase decisions – particularly, in table service environments. So, too, are advances in other features and functionality. These range from more robust – and anytime, anywhere – data reporting capabilities to expanded payment options. Other key drivers include everything from CRM and marketing features to integrated inventory control and labor management capabilities.

What key concepts should restaurant owners and managers keep in mind when researching POS software and hardware? What buying considerations and evaluation criteria should influence the purchase decision? How can restaurants, including not only fine-dining establishments but also quick service operations, cafes and bars, maximize the value of the investment? Written by industry experts, The 2015 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant POS Systems addresses these and many other questions, helping prospective buyers make the right choices.

The research is based on data collected from 147 qualified survey respondents across different geographies, different types of restaurants and different levels of the organization. The content was independently produced, providing for unbiased, fact-based information. The underwriters of this Smart Decision Guide include the following industry leaders: Bevo POS, Digital Dining, Matre’D, Oracle and TouchBistro.

The 2015 Smart Decision Guide to Restaurant POS Systems is now available for complimentary download. It can be accessed here.
