In our recent post, The Perfect POS System – What to Look For, we discussed many must-haves for this all-important investment in your restaurant.
In this post, we will specifically discuss interfacing your POS (point of sale) with your payroll systems.
Payroll is no doubt a huge part of successfully running your restaurant. In an industry with so many moving parts, we want to make your job as easy, efficient, and error-free as possible and allow you to get the most out of the technology you employ in your place of business. After all, it is designed to serve YOU, not the other way around. Underutilizing your POS system is like only using ten percent of your brain. (Relax, that’s actually a myth.)
We know the last thing you want to do is implement a POS system into your restaurant, only to have it double your work load (and compound your stress levels).
Imagine having four remote controls in your living room, each controlling a different function on your TV and DVD player – with a universal remote sitting right there on the table, unused. (Of course you don’t know anyone who’s that technologically challenged, do you?)
Take advantage of the benefits of a POS system and streamline all processes in the front of the house, back of the house, and kitchen – across one, a few, or all locations.
Need help understanding your system? We provide incredible training to help you and your staff navigate our already intuitive and easy-to-use POS systems, and our 24/7 Support Center is always standing by to assist you.
One important feature of the perfect POS system (we recommend POSitouch, by the way) is the ability to easily interface with your payroll system. Then you can enjoy the following benefits:
Performing the interface is very simple.
1. Each user has to be mapped by their payroll ID into the POS.
2. Every payroll cycle, the user performs his or her adjustments in the POS system, produces the payroll output file, and uploads it into the payroll system.
3. The paychecks are then paid from the payroll system.
It’s as simple as that!
