Heartland Restaurant POS now integrated with Yellow Dog

Our model allows you to use industry experts for restaurant inventory control with Heartland POS. This model allows you the best of breed when selecting systems. We found out long ago time ago to stay in our lane. We don’t do inventory and good inventory does not do POS. In some cases it makes sense to do it all like we do with orders. Other times it is better to partner with someone that brings a laser focus to the solution. In this case Yellow Dog is one of the first companies to complete the integration with Heartland POS.

The Heartland Guest Application engages your guest

Modern POS systems should go beyond your restaurant. Use the Heartland Guest Application to empower guest. Ten years ago you would have paid a king’s ransom to have the technology found today for a few bucks a month. We have leveraged the cloud to bring your restaurant right into your guest phone. Guest will love to pay their guest check right on their own phone. Guest won’t wait to order when they skip the line with your app.

There are guest that expect you to have modern technology

Do you know there are consumers growing up right now that don’t recall a world without apps? A tipping point will soon be reached when you are not relevant without these technologies. Mobile App and Kiosk are the new normal and you risk being an outlier without them. Of course they are not for every restaurant but in the fast casual space they are a must. For the fast casual restaurant the Heartland Guest Application checks all those boxes.

Omni channel Systems  should be fully integrated

OK, omni channel and integrated seem like pretty fancy terms right? Well they sound far more fancy than they really are. First omni channel simply means you have more than one way to order. A system with cashier terminals and online ordering would be considered omni channel, simple right. Fully integrated just indicates it acts as one system not a patch work of systems connected via interface. In the case of Heartland Restaurant POS it is omni channel and fully integrated. You won’t have to use an online ordering platform that is separate from your POS. That also goes for delivery, kiosk, loyalty and more. All of these features and functions are native to Heartland Restaurant POS. This is where the Heartland Guest Application comes into play. These are not other programs they are part of the program. This makes all the difference in the world.  To arrange a no obligation in person in Seattle, Tacoma or Yakima area or online demonstration of Heartland Restaurant POS call us at 800-863-2274 or follow  visit us on the web.
