Disruptive Tech Makes Its Way to Restaurants

Are your customers in the restaurant business thinking about replacing their point-of-sale system? They’re not alone! Restaurants reportedly replace their POS systems every five to seven years—that can mean upwards of 150,000 units per year.

But the good news is that the days of costly hardware and harsh startup costs are long gone. Restaurateurs can run their eateries even when they aren’t physically present–straight from their iPads. NCR’s point-of-sale products offer dependable small business solutions for cafes, bars, breweries, frozen yogurt shops and everything in between. While NCR Silver and the NCR Silver Register meet the needs of a variety of retail and service businesses, NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition caters—you guessed it—to the unique demands of restaurateurs.

NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition offers targeted functionality and even gives multi-site business owners complete control of all of their locations with one view.

Here are some of the helpful multi-site features that could benefit your clients:

Save time managing inventory

The task of inputting inventory for multiple sites can be daunting. That’s why NCR Silver Pro’s multi-store management allows merchants to set up inventory once and apply it to all other locations with ease. Now business owners can accurately keep stock—and even recipes—up to date for any amount of locations.

Set recurring events

Want to set happy hours at every location? No problem! Enjoy the ease of scheduling automatic deductions and special pricing, whether it’s for a specific day, time, or location. Home screen details even provide employees with reminders of the day’s promotions.

Communicate across locations

Do your clients run several stores and need a quick way to communicate to employees? Introducing the POS messaging feature. Let’s say you want to remind people of a new cookie promotion, warn them about potential bad weather, or <insert random alert here>. With NCR Silver Pro, you can push out short notes to one or all locations in real time.

Market to customers everywhere

Want to get the word out about events and specials? NCR Silver Pro facilitates email marketing to inform customers about current promotions. Use the included email templates to send bulk emails straight from the back office for no extra charge. And because previous customers are automatically attached to all stores, contacts are easily accessible.

Reward loyal customers

With NCR Silver Pro’s digital loyalty solution, rewards are a part of the point-of-sale system. Since discounts are automatically applied, customers receive credit no matter which location they visit.

See results from anywhere

NCR Silver Pro’s automated multi-site reports provide a consolidated view of sales data in real time, which gives owners the freedom to manage all locations from any device with an Internet connection.

Accept gift cards everywhere

Gift cards are seamless with NCR Silver Pro. Once purchased, they can even be loaded and used at any number of locations.
