POS systems and Support locally to your business.
Often it is key to have a good professional that is in your community. Sure anyone can overnight a device but can they come into your business and consult face to face. Would anyone else be part of your community and probably be one of your customers? Like they old saying goes Think Globally and Buy Locally for strong communities. So when you find yourself looking for a new system or perhaps you are building a new business contact Gary for your POS needs. We offer more than just one system so he can consult with you to determine which is better. Maybe a cash register is what you need or perhaps your requirements demand an iPad system that is cloud based. You will also find us to be credit card agnostic and won’t force you to use a specific card company. Feel free to contact us at 800-863-2274 or on the web at Heartland POS in Yakima for more information.
It has been several months now since we started selling Heartland POS.
Although I’m not surprised at all because of our history of selling other Heartland products (they own Heartland, Dinerware, Cash Register Express among others) that the new product is selling really well. I chalk that up to the fact it is a cloud based iPad system. Today’s Restaurateurs lean heavily toward cloud based system instead of Windows based products. Heartland POS also made a great move when it purchased and re branded MobileBytes instead of starting from scratch.
The Start Up and training is much easier than other systems.
Selling Digital Dining for nearly thirty years we were accustomed to spending at least twenty hours on site. The first thing we noticed (such a welcome relief) is Heartland POS deploys much more rapidly than a traditional system. The programming and flexibility of features just can’t be matched with an older system. We also count the fact that this generation of young entrepreneurs also grew up using iPads and cloud based technology. We now successfully deploy Heartland POS systems in a matter of days instead of weeks like the legacy systems.
Schedule a demonstration with your local Heartland dealer to see for yourself.
I’ll say after no more than 10 to 15 minutes into a demo you will see this is the cutting edge system you have been searching for. Don’t paint yourself into a box with a system that forces you to process credit cards with only one company, set yourself free. That is exactly what this system does, it set’s you free to use robust features and the credit card company that you chose. Don’t believe the haters when they tell you if you buy Heartland you have to use them for processing, it is simply not true. I have installed several systems now using FDMS, TSYS just to name a few. Try that with one the other FinTech systems.

Can you balance the struggle between menu prices, labor cost and rent with restaurant technology? Many industry experts report the upcoming struggle most restaurants will face is the increasing cost of labor and rent. Of course this is nothing new right, restaurants have battled this forever. The difference is now there is so much more pressure coming at you from all directions. Competition is emerging from concepts that were never seen as a threat before. What is an independent restaurateur to do?
That is where restaurant technology comes in. Did you know with the right cloud based iPad restaurant POS system you can start to compete with the big boys. First let’s examine what they do that you don’t. They engage with the modern foodie in many different ways. You can’t rely on just word of mouth or expensive ad campaigns to market your restaurant. The modern diner wants to use their phone for everything including dining. Yes, you heard that right, they want to find your restaurant, order from your restaurant and pay the bill all with their phone. Can your legacy technology do that?
The trend is to deploy technology to empower your business to do more with less or maybe the same amount of staff. Let’s look at one example where this is easy to do. Carry out ordering is booming today because people are replacing home cooked meals with carryout. This is great of course, however how to you manage this growth? The easiest way, is to use online ordering that is part of your POS. The reason to use a native online ordering system is cost and management. What good is an online ordering site if it is costing you hundreds of dollars a month and cumbersome to manage. Use a system like Heartland Restaurant Point of Sale where online ordering is included in your system at no additional cost. Ok, your’e asking how does this help? Well we have all gone in to pick up our carryout only to find one server taking an order over the phone while trying to ring up customers at the same time. That order taking over the phone gets replaced with your online ordering site. Not only does this free up your server it also stops you from getting stiffed for orders not picked up. When you use online ordering guest pay for their meal before it ever prints in the kitchen. If they don’t pick it up its on them not you.
So can you do more than just online ordering with the new restaurant technology? Let’s take this to the next level. A good system will also allow you to simply press an order on a kitchen display that shows your take out orders and send a text to the guest that their food is ready. That is engaging with your guest! That is what the modern customer wants. Do you think that this may encourage them to return to your restaurant? Of course it will because we all want simplicity and efficiency
