A restaurant management system is a sort of point-of-sale ( POS ) software specifically designed for restaurants, food trucks, bars, and others in the food-service industry. Unlike a point-of-sale system, a restaurant management system encompasses all back-end requirements, such as Inventory, including staff management. What is the difference between a restaurant management system and a standard Point of sale system? While both systems are categorized as a retail space, the Restaurant business system offers unique features in the catering industry such as ingredient-level updates, the waitstaff’s ability to deliver orders directly from the table to the kitchen, billing, and kitchen displays.
What are the benefits of a restaurant management system? An RMS offers more options and features than a standard Point of sale system. Restaurants can perform these tasks with a restaurant management system:
- Track sales and orders
- View accurate, real-time financial statements
- Manage staff scheduling
- Access data through the cloud
