The Pilot Point of Sale system offers much more to help restaurant owners and managers. It has been designed for efficiency and control to take your restaurant management to the next level with access to technology, including the PilotLive app, QRHub and SmartPoS

The PoS system streamlines restaurant operations. Our clients have access to industry-leading innovations, including the PilotMiles loyalty programme, reservation management, accounting and payroll services, and online backup. But what do all of these advanced features mean for a restaurant? Let’s take a look at a few of the things that a Pilot PoS system will enable you to do:

Access data insights

PilotLive is a reporting tool that provides real-time operational and financial data. It is an online browser-based feature that allows you to use data to your advantage. Your PoS collects data as processes run through it. These relevant and reliable metrics are shown in easy-to-read reports that give you insight into your establishment. They can be used to increase sales, improve workflows, identify operational weak points, eliminate revenue leakage and stock wastage, and accurately forecast financials.

Improve your offering

Knowledge is power and using restaurant software puts the power in your hands. The PoS system captures and correlates meaningful data from all the automated processes that run through it. Not only can this be used to eliminate wasteful processes, as mentioned above, it can also improve your offering and overall customer experience. 

The data highlights areas that require attention and gives you insight into your target market and its needs. This information can be used to optimise your menu for sales and implement strategic specials or customised customer loyalty programmes. So you can use this data to improve all-around efficiency.

Manage inventory 

Have you ever thought about how inventory affects the running of your entire restaurant? Overstocking perishable foods could lead to costly wastage and understocking could lead to the uncomfortable and unprofitable situation of not being able to prepare certain menu items. 

Pilot’s PoS system tracks and accesses inventory amounts and then automatically adjusts them as orders are entered into the PoS. It also informs you of outstanding purchase orders, and you can send requests to suppliers once stock reaches a certain level.

Automate staff schedules 

Automating staff schedules improves accuracy. Why? Managing employee hours and shifts is difficult and doing so manually often leaves room for human error and buddy clocking. Our PoS system is fitted with a biometric fingerprint scanner that tracks employee check-in and check-out times, determines hours worked and monitors employees’ movements to better identify weak areas. This function also helps servers log in quickly without having to rely on complicated codes or passwords.

Whether it’s integrating additional features that will help support restaurant operations or providing training to ensure you get the most out of our software, we are constantly trying to find new ways to improve our solutions so that we can provide the best offering to our clients. Our PoS solutions are about more than just equipment – they’re about empowering your establishment.
