Make an informed buying decision when you are selecting a new system
The trending business model in the restaurant POS industry is a little confusing. In the last decade most of the POS system on the market are now owned by credit card processing companies. This has caused a lot of misleading offers to flood the market. One of those misleading practices is the “Free POS” offers you may have seen. being a business person your self can you really fall prey to a “Free” offer of anything. You and I both know nothing is free. If a company is offering you a free system it is because they are over charging you for merchant services. That company offering the Free system has to pay for it somehow! The first consideration in buying a new system is “do i want to be in a long term contract to pay off a free system”?
Partner with a local company that is also invested in your community
Take a look at what POS re-sellers in your community have to offer. Don’t buy a system from across the country or from your bank. Spend your time in creating a dining experience for your guest not chasing down a company on the other side of the country to get something resolved. Investing locally can free you of extra burdens you should not have to deal with.
Look at total cost of ownership not just the start up cost
Ensure when you are calculating total cost of ownership to factor in credit card fees. Factor in all the cost to get a true picture. If merchant services are part of your system include those cost.
