When you deploy Heartland Restaurant POS in your business you will have features like Scan to Order and Scan to Pay. Use these features to augment your servers. Your servers can handle more tables when you have these features helping them. This technology allows you to do more with less and keep guest placing orders.
Make Your Guest Experience even better when you value their time with Heartland Restaurant POS system
With Scan to Order and Scan to Pay guest are no longer waiting for an over burdened server. Now they can place their own order accurately and securely. Your server is not out of the loop, they can still access the guest check and place additional orders or print the guest check. Maybe the server started the guest check but the guest want another round, no problem they can reorder. This feature really makes your server a super server because it takes so much pressure off them while still producing at the same level. Another way Heartland Restaurant Point of Sale helps you improve the guest experience is by allowing them to pay their guest check off too. Yep that is right, when your guest is ready to go and the server is busy they don’t have to wait any longer. The guest scans a QR code on the guest check and can pay that guest check off including a tip. No more waiting for a server when they can take care of business themselves.

Delivery and Vegan Food are the fastest growing restaurant trends
According to Grubhub and Yelp vegan and vegetarian options are trending like never before. The fastest growing item overall was cauliflower crust pizza. According to the “Year in Food” report cauliflower popularity grew by 650%. After several years of growth in meat alternatives can this really be called trendy any longer? I would suggest this is far from a trend. Americans are looking for comfort food without the animal protein.
Dine in, Delivery or in home Meal replacement that is the question
Whether you are catering to the meat alternative crowd or still serving meat and potatoes how and where are the next frontier. Diners are voting with their wallets and they are choosing in home meal replacement and delivery. Several restaurant publications have recently featured restaurants that have closed their dining rooms to expand delivery and take out ops. What this tells me is people want fresh not frozen and quality made meals. If it were just wanting to eat at home we would just nuke a frozen dinner right? Well, that ain’t happening.
Do you have to respond to trends in order to make it today?
Well that answer to that is above my pay grade. I do think if you are just starting in business and catering to younger diners you probably do. There is still room for the classic steak house and hopefully there always will be but the young guest are growing up in an alternative protein reality. The next generation will have never lived in a world where fast food did not offer a plant based alternative. At what point is it no longer an alternative? These same consumers will also grow up with every restaurant having online ordering and delivery options. So regardless of the concept you operate it may be time to dip your toe into the technology pool and see what happens. No need to do a cannon ball into the deep end, start slow with an iPad POS system and go with the flow. Let your guest tell you how they want to order and respond! While we can’t help you with plant based alternatives we can assist with the modern technology for your restaurant. Call us at 800-863-2274 or online at Restaurant POS including online ordering.
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.
