Point of Sale System Examples – Gallery – Page 2
Here is another set of Point of Sale system examples that we’ve installed for our customers.
Once restaurants begin to grow, it makes sense to have multiple terminals so that the serving staff isn’t standing around waiting for another server to finish their work. A large building could have terminals spread throughout the space so that staff is always within reach of an available terminal.
Tickets can be retrieved from any terminal, so for example even if a ticket was started on Station 2, the server can come back later to Station 4 and pick up where they left off.
Keep in mind that each terminal or kitchen printer will need a connection to the network and access to an electrical outlet.
Restaurant systems may have several kitchen printers dedicated to specific kitchen stations. They may even a kitchen video terminal (similar to those you see in fast food spots).
Delivery locations use caller ID units (not pictured here) to quickly pull up customer information and assign it to a new ticket – even pulling up the customer’s favorite orders from the past.
Kitchen printers are available in either thermal or impact (dot-matrix). If the printer sits near an oven or grill then the paper on a thermal printer will turn black and will be difficult to read. Also, cooks often prefer dot-matrix because they can hear when they print. (Thermal printer can be very quiet.)
