ALLENTOWN, Pa., April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harbortouch, a leading national supplier of point-of-sale (POS) systems, today began deploying its new tableside ordering feature on all Harbortouch Hospitality systems as part of its industry-leading free POS system program.
With Harbortouch Tableside, restaurant servers input customer orders directly into the POS software at the table via a dedicated Apple iPad app that mirrors the main POS interface. Orders are relayed directly to the kitchen or bar for a dramatic increase in efficiency for both the restaurant and its customers, as well as other key benefits, including:
- Increased speed of service for a better customer experience,
- Quicker table turns, which produce additional revenue,
- The elimination of redundancies associated with hand writing orders,
- More accurate ordering, and
- A unique, impressive dining experience for restaurant patrons.
Harbortouch CEO Jared Isaacman points out, "The operational efficiencies gained with touch-screen POS systems are undeniable. However, all POS Systems are vulnerable to one antiquated technology: pen and paper. When you look at large restaurant chains and high-end dining establishments across America, they all have some of the most sophisticated POS and restaurant management systems available. However, their servers still use a pen and paper to take the order and then must walk to a POS station to input the order. With Harbortouch Tableside, restaurants can eliminate this redundancy and greatly enhance the substantial efficiency gains of having a POS system in the first place. There is no question that Tableside will have a tremendously positive impact on the financial performance of restaurants across the nation."
As part of the company's unprecedented free equipment program, the Harbortouch Hospitality software is perfect for fine dining or casual restaurants. The system offers countless time- and money-saving features, such as employee management, inventory tracking, customized menus, flexible pricing and advanced reporting. While the iPad integrates seamlessly with the Harbortouch Hospitality system, the customers are responsible for purchasing their own iPad.
