Choosing the right POS system for your restaurant in the Philippines

Choosing the Right POS System for Your Restaurant in the Philippines

So, you are starting a restaurant in the Philippines? Congratulations! Embarking on a new culinary venture is always exciting. Among the many ingredients that you need to set up your business, an essential decision you need to make is choosing a suitable point-of-sale or POS system for your restaurant.

A reliable POS system is crucial as it influences daily operations and customer experience. You want a POS system that blends seamlessly with your restaurant’s daily operations and offers functionalities and features designed to enrich and expand your business’s flavor. 

Here are three quick tips to help you decide on your final POS system choice.

Tip #1: Understand how your restaurant works

When searching for a POS system, you need to consider the type and size of your restaurant as this has an effect on the POS features you’ll need.

POS for different restaurant types

A small food kiosk focusing on quick orders and payments requires a lightweight and easy-to-use POS system. In contrast, a full-service restaurant, especially in the fine dining sector, would greatly benefit from a portable yet full-function POS that waiters can bring directly to the table for orders and payments. 

For businesses offering food delivery services, a POS system with integration into various delivery platforms is advantageous. Casual dining spots may opt for a QR code ordering system for increased operational efficiency and a better dining experience. This allows your customers to order, re-order, or even order in advance without waiting for a server.

POS for different restaurant sizes

The scalability of a POS system is also a factor that you need to consider. Food kiosks and small restaurants with a single branch may find a POS system with basic features sufficient. However, medium-sized restaurants with 1 to 5 branches or large ones with more than 5 branches will need powerful POS systems with advanced features and essential accessories.

Tip #2: Know which POS features your restaurant needs

If you’re a small vendor just starting out, managing your budget wisely is important. Ideally, you need a POS system that scales with your business, gradually allowing you to integrate additional features as needed. QashierPOS, known for its scalability and robust customer support, is perfectly suited for growing businesses. Discover an array of plans and packages for your F&B business here.

POS + Payments terminal

Consider a mid-sized restaurant where customers show a preference for e-wallet payments. Juggling between multiple terminals offering different modes of payment can cause confusion to both your staff and customers. Instead, you should choose a single POS terminal that streamlines your payment processes. QashierPOS accommodates various payment methods, including credit cards, e-wallets, and mobile payments – a feature that will be available soon in the Philippines. Moreover, the sleek designs of our terminals optimize counter space and add a modern touch to your restaurant’s aesthetics.

Advanced POS features

Qashier offers advanced POS features like Qashier’s Kitchen Display System (KDS) which allows for a paperless kitchen environment by displaying orders directly from the POS system. This helps enhance work efficiency and reduce paper waste. Another advanced POS feature we recommend is QashierHQ Multi-Store Management. QashierHQ offers comprehensive multi-store management capabilities for chain restaurants with multiple locations, ensuring seamless operations across all outlets.

Tip #3: Be updated on POS trends

Adopting alternative payment methods in today’s business landscape is essential to stay ahead. Customers get more options when you offer various payment modes, such as e-wallets, QR payments, and contactless transactions. Furthermore, integrating cloud-based services for detailed data analytics and establishing an omnichannel presence is key to keeping your restaurant agile and attuned to diverse customer preferences across various channels. 

However, staying abreast of the latest POS trends can be challenging as a busy restaurateur. This is where partnering with Qashier makes a difference. Choosing Qashier means aligning with a smart POS partner that is continually updated with the latest technologies, ensuring your POS and payment processes are as smooth and seamless as your customers expect.

Why Qashier is the best choice for restaurants in the Philippines

Full-function POS in one terminal

Qashier stands out as a great choice for a POS system for restaurants in the Philippines for several reasons. Its innovative approach significantly differs from traditional POS systems.

Another key advantage of QashierPOS is scalability. We design our POS systems to grow with your business, from small single-outlet establishments to larger chains with multiple locations. This is crucial in the diverse and ever-evolving Philippine restaurant industry. 

Additionally, Qashier’s cloud-based platform offers real-time data and insights, a feature that traditional POS systems lack. This access to instant data analytics enables restaurant owners to make informed decisions, track customer preferences, and adapt to trends more efficiently.

Accept digital payments

Qashier already supports various card payments in Singapore and Malaysia, and this feature is expected to be available soon in the Philippines. This forward-thinking approach ensures that our merchants can cater to a wider range of customer payment preferences, especially as the Philippines is quickly moving towards more digital and cashless transactions.
