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.

Today’s modern guest are already engaging your business before they even arrive. Are you ready to engage with them? When they walk in can you add them to an integrated wait list alerting them by text their table is ready? Can they join your  loyalty program? When they are ready to leave can they pay the check from their phone? If your answer is no to any of those questions you need to update your POS system.

Your competition is engaging with your guest already. Keep them with unrivaled restaurant technology.

Convert call in orders to online orders

Heartland Restaurant POS has released a library of marketing material.

After Heartland purchased and re branded Mobilebytes they’ve implemented  some great improvements. Recently they’ve released marketing collateral for end-users to promote their restaurants. Like many restaurants today you are probably taking orders over the phone. While that is awesome let’s face facts, it ties up staff.  However, we know most consumers today prefer to order online. Using Heartland’s complete iPad point of sale system you can kill two birds with one stone.

Flip phone orders to online orders with marketing and features.

Simple tools like promo cards direct guest to order online.  Therefore, Heartland makes a complete arsenal of material available for users. For instance, with every phone order insert a promo card with the order.  In addition, add posters and window clings promoting you offer online ordering. After that, guest will begin using the online ordering site included with Heartland POS.

Why is it important to flip phone orders online?

Simply put, your servers can only take one order at a time. However, your online ordering site is designed to handle large amounts consecutively. In other words,  your server will be greeting guest instead of being on a phone when they come in. As a result you can accept more online orders with the same amount of labor.  In addition you will likely increase your customer base because you can engage effectively. Above all, making your business easy to order from is what people want.

Can you afford this TECHNOLOGY?

The better question is can you afford to not have this technology in your business? To sum it all up, not having the ability to flip phone orders to online orders will cost you customers. That is to say, you have to engage your guest because your competition is. Our system combined with marketing material is a cost effective way to accomplish this. Call us today at 800-863-2274 to find out more. Of course we can be found online ourselves at Seattle Tacoma Heartland POS dealer.
