There is one thing that none of us can buy – more time. No matter how limitless your resources are, there will always be 24 hours in a day and for most business owners this is never enough. Now more than ever, it is imperative that owners find every time and money saving efficiency possible to get through COVID.

The old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” has been a restaurant industry mantra forever. But we now live in a tech driven world and it’s time to change if your business is going to survive and grow. You need to do more with less, which means streamlining tedious tasks. The best way to do more with less is to use technology – and that starts with a cloud POS.

For restaurants, the technology upgrade starts with the POS. Upgrading to a cloud POS will get you more than a fancy looking new cash register. Cloud POS systems enable you to leverage technology that can streamline scheduling, inventory, payroll, bookkeeping, online orders, loyalty, gift programs, sales tax management, and more.

Face it, you didn’t open a restaurant to spend your time in the back office, so why not automate these tasks?

Here’s an example of what cloud POS can do for you. Many cloud POS systems offer applications such as Homebase for quickly creating and managing employee schedules. Scheduling apps on a cloud POS not only allow you to create schedules, but you can also efficiently make adjustments, communicate with your employees at the touch of a button, and better manage labor costs. The POS even functions as the time clock your employees will use to clock in and out. Then, when it is time to run payroll, the combined schedule and time clock app communicate directly with your payroll provider, enabling a quick download directly to your payroll company.

Another repetitive task you must regularly manage is sales tax, which contributes absolutely zero dollars to your bottom line. From making sure you have enough money set aside to remembering to file and pay each month or quarter, sales tax can create untold risks and expense if mismanaged. As a former restaurant owner myself, I hated managing sales tax so much that I started DAVO Sales Tax. We’re able to use the technology behind cloud POS to fully take sales tax management off your hands.
