The most common restaurant POS systems include features such as mobile and contactless ordering and payment, menu management, and cloud-based reporting.

What is the difference between traditional POS systems and CAKE’s cloud-based POS systems for restaurants?

The key differences between traditional POS systems and CAKE’s cloud-based POS systems for restaurants lie in their maintenance and reporting availability.

CAKE’s cloud-based POS has an offline mode that continues to accept credit card payments if the internet quits. This ensures uninterrupted service and smooth transactions. CAKE’s Pulse monitoring system helps identify any issues with your POS system before you even notice. Furthermore, our restaurant POS system incorporates intuitive technology, including a customer-facing display, which streamlines the checkout process, enhances the customer experience, reduces order errors, and boosts profit margins. Unlike traditional systems that require you to be at the terminal to access performance and reports, CAKE’s cloud-based POS allows you to access these from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. Additionally, CAKE’s cloud-based POS offers robust employee management, payroll reporting capabilities, and automatic free software updates making it easier for restaurants to run their business without delays.

What are the most popular benefits of CAKE restaurant POS system for full service versus quick service restaurants?

CAKE’s restaurant POS system offers tailored benefits for both full service (FSR) and quick service restaurants (QSRs), enhancing efficiency and customer satisfaction in each setting. For FSRs, the system supports seamless table management and reservations, allowing for efficient seating arrangements and improved guest experiences. Mobile POS systems enable convenient tableside service, speeding up order taking and payment processing. For QSRs, the system includes mobile POS options for line-busting, which reduces wait times and increases throughput during peak hours.

QSRs can benefit from customer-facing touch display options, enabling guests to sign and leave a tip directly on the POS, streamlining the checkout process. Furthermore, speed screens are most helpful in getting orders in fast. The POS system also supports easy enrollment in loyalty programs, encouraging repeat business. Additionally, CAKE’s POS system includes waitlist management for QSRs, integrated self-service kiosks, and flexible pricing for various order types such as takeout and delivery, along with customizable discounts. These features collectively enhance the operational efficiency and customer experience for both types of restaurants.

Does CAKE's restaurant POS software have a long-term contract?

No, CAKE’s restaurant POS software does not require a long-term contract. Instead, we offer a flexible and manageable 24-month software agreement period. This allows you to benefit from our advanced POS features and exceptional support without the commitment of an extended contract, giving you both stability and flexibility to adapt to your restaurant’s evolving needs.
