When it comes to EPOS equipment or Electronic Point of Sale Equipment, it pertains to the order-entry computer-based technology used by many bars and restaurants for capturing orders, recording data, and displaying or printing tickets. For entering food and beverage orders easily, cashiers, bartenders, and restaurant servers can all use EPOS systems Manchester. In fact, a POS equipment can serve as a computer as well as a cash register. A POS equipment can be set up in multiple stations including credit card terminals, display screens, receipt printers, server stations, and hostess stations.
A POS system in place saves time, adds accuracy, and provides convenience in very busy situations performing the following functions: automatic calculation of cash due for every order entered, recording the method of payment, keeping track of cash flow, automated hourly and daily sales data reporting, automated calculation of payroll, recording daily checks averages, tracking of menu items sold, and recording information of repeating customers. Just keep in mind that not all POS systems are the same, the features and functionalities may differ depending on the restaurant type, service style, developer, and manufacturer. When it comes to the general procedure of taking orders through an EPOS Manchester system, the employee enters user code or username into the initial touch screen, allowing the employee to access the system, begins a new order by entering food items, then the POS will send all the order information to the bar or kitchen in a form of digital display or printed ticket, so that the bar or kitchen employees can read the orders and prepare them for serving. In a fast-service restaurant, the employee read the total charge on the POS display, and then collect the payment from the customer, whereas in a full-service restaurant the server brings a check, wait for the payment, and enter it into the POS marking it as paid .
Touch screens can be placed in different areas around the restaurant depending on the service style and the layout of the restaurant, like for example, setting it up in a visible place such as close to the front doors for fast-service restaurants. On the other hand, POS systems of full-service restaurants are usually located in discreet locations so as not to interfere with the dining experience of customers and the ambiance. Digital components are found among modern POS systems which are called bump screens or KDS screens, where orders pop up with the clear information of what time the order was placed, what food has been requested, the table number as well as the server's name.
