Answer: Not necessarily. Our restaurant management software is being implemented at many "non-restaurant" locations, such as Frabricland. While there are many industry-specific software packages available, many of them don't offer all of the features available in a general point of sale software package. Ask yourself what features you need now and in the future. Do you want a customer loyalty program? Do you need faster credit card authorizations over the Internet?
Q. Should I buy the point of sale hardware or the software first?
Answer: The single biggest mistake restaurateurs make when choosing a new POS system is buying the point of sale hardware before the restaurant software. The software you choose to run your business or franchise may not be compatible with your new point of sale hardware. Not all scanners, weight scales, or card readers will work with all restaurant software packages. Buying both the point of sale hardware and software from the same vendor can reduce or eliminate compatibility issues and can often reduce your overall technology costs.
Q. There are so many different POS software applications out there. How will I know how to choose the right one?
Answer: First and foremost, take the time to understand the specific needs of your restaurant, bar or entertainment complex. Establish your total technology budget. If necessary, break it down into the things you need this year and things that can wait until next year.
Consider all factors, such as technical support, service after the sale, point of sale hardware, and integration with accounting packages or other business software you use. Learn more about how to choose the right bundle of hardware and software for your business.

Answer: A great POS system includes software that increases your efficiency by eliminating unnecessary work. Instead of using separate systems for your inventory, mail order, ecommerce, and wholesale divisions, choose one restaurant software package that can manage your entire business. Choose an ABS Restaurant POS system that increases your speed of service with faster ticket entry, on-the-fly data entry, and data-driven lookups.
