Since 2019, hoteliers and restaurateurs subject to VAT have been required to use POS software.

 

Restaurant owners must therefore invest a certain amount of money to become compliant. This law could be frowned upon by professionals, however, using POS software can have real benefits.

 

In our opinion, there are several advantages, such as:

 

  • Easy management of employees: POS software allows you to create multiple users (one employee = a secure and unique access code) with different rights, which allows you to monitor the actions of each server. This supports your daily management. The software enables customers to take orders and check out quickly, making it easier for restaurant employees to work and increase their productivity.

 

  • Simplified management of deliveries: Apart from simply taking dine-in and take away orders, the POS software also makes it possible to easily manage the orders delivery process, thanks to exclusive features such as the automatic display of the customer number, management of deliverers, delivery zones, etc.

 

  • Payment methods: a good POS software must be able to accept all payment methods: cash, bank card and of course restaurant vouchers, still widely used in UAE. It also allows you to suggest the bill splitting.

 

  • Real-time sales monitoring: a POS software allows you to monitor your daily / weekly / monthly sales, by employees, by payment methods, by station (very useful if you have several outlets) and even by city or by street. You can export your data to excel or pdf, make comparative MoM and YoY statistics.

 

  • Optimization of inventory management: POS software allows you to monitor your stocks in real time. You can set up "stock alerts" when the stock drops below a certain threshold. It also allows you to integrate your recipes with precision, and manage the yields.

 

  • Customer loyalty and promotional offers: some POS software offers management of customer loyalty by setting up a loyalty points or prize pool system. Your restaurant's average basket will therefore increase with the use of POS software.

 

  • Accounting: a POS software allows you to prepare and export your accounting documents at the end of the day, which greatly facilitates your year-end balance sheet, and saves time and money on tedious administrative tasks. 

 

In the end, it is obvious that POS software can be a great investment for a restaurant. As professionals, we recommend BIM POS Masterdine solution, which has all of the assets listed above, not to forget the after sales service and technical service, which is an added value to the software.
