Keeping your patrons happy is the first priority when managing your Restaurant. You need a POS System that can help you monitor the status of each table, so you can check how long your guests have been seated, when they ordered and who is serving them. The Idealpos Point of Sale System has been developed over the years to include many features to help restaurant owners manage their daily operations.
Idealpos supports various kitchen printing formats for small cafes through fine dining restaurants. The example below is based on the ‘Group instruction by Seat’ format. This format is great for automatically sorting items into print groups, and keeping instructions together with the correct item.
Idealpos kitchen printing works with or without the use of seat number entry, and can handle the correct formatting of orders that contain meals to share and degustations with multiple courses.
Ideal Handheld enables you to take an order at a Table with the order printed automatically to a Kitchen Printer. The order is then saved to the corresponding table.
The Ideal Handheld software will run on several PDA brands including the Widefly, Symbol, Sharp, Dell and HP.
It is also possible to print bills from the Handheld, inquiry on a table, and view specials of the day.
Bill Splitting allows your guests to split a bill between multiple variations to give everyone the chance to pay what is required of them. The bill can be Split into four different ways, which are by Fraction, Amount, Cover and Quantity, or a combination of each.
The cost price of prepared food can be calculated by adding raw ingredients as stock items to the Idealpos database. Food products that are sold to a customer can then be setup as indirect stock items, so each time they are sold, the stock level of raw ingredients are deducted from stock. By entering these ingredients into Idealpos through Stock Purchases or Purchase Orders, the cost price is updated and flows through to the indirect item, updating the total cost price of that indirect item.
See below the example of the Idealpos Hamburger, and how the cost price is calculated by entering the recipe for that item:
