POS
Providing digital ways for customers to access your menu can be a win-win for Canadian restaurants and their customers, the NPD Group’s Robert Carter shared in a recent webinar.
The point-of-sale (POS) software market is constantly evolving. With that in mind, Canadian Pizza checked in with suppliers to find out what features they are working on and what trends they are seeing in POS software.
By now we understand and accept the demise of the phone book and accept that consumers search for information first on the Internet. We also understand that if your pizzeria is not listed within the top two or three sites the search query returns, your chances of capturing that customer are low.

In today’s fast-paced world, restaurant owners and operators, especially those in the pizza industry, need to get their customers in and out as quickly as possible.
Nov. 29, 2012 – Restaurant operators are often surprised to learn that the popular POS systems that are used in other quick-service and dine-in restaurants don’t translate to their pizza and delivery concepts.
August 10, 2011 - Considering VoIP for your restaurant? Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is the newest in phone system technology, sending regular voice calls over a computer network instead of a traditional phone line.
Sept. 2, 2009 – Mobile applications, or apps for short, are the future for today’s businesses. While many people associate apps for the iPhone, Blackberry, and Google Android devices as simply fun and games, the fact is that any business can create an app that generates customer interest, garners client loyalty, and positions your company as the industry leader.
Given the amount of talk, debate and shared frustration at pizza events, you’d think the decision to invest in a point of sale system for the pizzeria falls somewhere after root canal.
I feel that some technology is paramount to running a successful high-volume pizzeria, like a good POS system, a phone system with call display and ‘on hold’ automated call queue options, while other gadgets, like personal cell phones, can be both a great time saver or a parasite in your business. 
For this issue of Canadian pizza magazine, we are focusing on technology in the pizzeria. That’s great, I’m all for technology, but it tends to get a little pricey.
