The restaurant industry is notoriously hard, especially on restaurant owners who are just starting out. But here’s a pro tip: investing in the right kind of restaurant software can make your life a lot easier. We know that return on investment (ROI) is one of the most important goals for a first-time restaurant owner. With Pilot, you can increase efficiencies and thus directly influence the generation of quicker ROI.

Make it your own

Customise Pilot PoS software to suit your needs and preferences. Pilot’s Touch Design program allows you to add buttons to your Pilot Point of Sale Touch workstations and then to link these buttons to PLU items. Accessing the Touch Design program is quick and easy, and with a little practice, you will be able to add, edit and link buttons to items with no problems at all.

Streamline your workflow

The Pilot PoS system is a business tool that streamlines your daily processes. It has been designed to help minimise the time spent on administration and reconciliation. It also gives you the ability to manage inventory and food cost, effectively and efficiently. Comprehensive stock records are updated automatically as you process orders and issue stock which increases your ability to manage supplier accounts, control recipes and monitor income. Bookkeepers and financial managers can take advantage of the fact that the Pilot PoS system can integrate financial and accounting information with recognised accounting packages, such as Sage Pastel.

Fully integrated with Sage Pastel

  • There’s no reason to still use a manual and archaic record-keeping system if you’re already using a forward-looking PoS in your establishment. While Pilot PoS accurately captures and stores all transactional data, you still need to balance the books to ensure compliance and compile financial statements.
  • Integration with Sage Pastel enables you to conduct basic financial statements on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Sage Pastel Accounting produces accurate statements that reflect the profits and losses in a business giving restaurant owners complete peace of mind that their financial matters are in order. Furthermore, legal compliance is also taken care of with specialist accounting software.
  • Pilot collaborates with Sage Pastel to give you the combination of an intuitive PoS system interfaced with accounting software to increase the overall efficiency of any establishment. This integration gives you a complete view of every financial aspect of the establishment for more effective management of staff, resources and suppliers. All restaurant financial data is accurately and reliably stored and safeguarded through our integration with the IronTree cloud backup platform.
