At the beginning of March, I had the opportunity to travel to Milwaukee, WI for the Midwest Foodservice Expoand demonstrate QuickBooks Point of Sale Online powered by Revel, an iPad POS solution. During the 3 day event, we met a variety of attendees gathering information on the latest and greatest product and service offerings including POS solutions of the foodservice and hospitality industry.
Each day the exhibit floor was filled with aromas of coffee, pastries, meats, cheese and sounds of sizzling griddles, beer pours and spirited chatter as baristas, bakers, beer sommeliers and chefs prepared their fare.
We talked with owners, partners, managers and employees of different industry verticals including coffee shops, cafes, family restaurants to food trucks, cafeterias, pizza shops, pubs and bistros. Our conversations revolved around what features they need and want in a POS solution as we demonstrated the #1 iPad solution, Revel Systems. The one common need we heard was the ability to enhance the guest experience.
Why is guest experience so important? Guests who receive first-rate service, excellent cuisine, refreshing beverages and choice of top products will not only spread the word but will return to patronize your establishment again. Word of mouth is the #1 way to market and build your business.
How does a POS solution fit into this picture? Choosing the right POS system is the backbone to running and managing your business so that you provide your team with the tools they need to accomplish their tasks and provide the ultimate experience for your guests.
