If you want your present circumstance to improve, there needs to be change. Without change you will be stuck in the same spot for years. Without change you can’t grow and move forward.
Sometimes though individuals and businesses are hesitant to adapt to technological advancements and resist making a change. They are too comfortable doing what they’re used to and they fear changing this will only bring them difficulties and disappointments.

Having a handheld POS would also prevent possible errors that may be incurred when transferring the orders from the pad to the POS. All orders taken at the customer’s table goes directly to the POS. This will take out instances of orders getting read incorrectly.
Waste No Time
The time spent rushing from the table to the POS terminals plus the time waiting in line for an available terminal will be eliminated with a handheld POS system. This will result to a decrease in the amount of time a ticket is open and increase the time spent from order to delivery.
More Time for Customers
As no time is wasted, this means servers can spend more time on the floor which means there is now more time for the customers. This will result to more tables being served and customers now having more opportunities to order additional food and drinks.
Taking orders through a handheld POS would eliminate the need for paper pads. It even decreases the need to have numerous POS terminals in one store. This gives you a greener alternative of going paperless and a decreased energy consumption as handheld POS only uses a fraction of the electricity needed to run a POS terminal.
Paperless ordering plus decreased energy consumption also gives you decreased costs. Aside from this you will also have a reduced staff requirement. Servers now have more time on the floor. This means fewer servers are now needed as more servers can now accommodate more tables. Plus you would also have a reduced time spent on training. Servers only need to learn how to use the handheld POS and familiarise the menu and won’t need to memorise all the orders.
Having used pen and paper pads in the restaurant for years, making the switch to handheld POS may seem a bit challenging and even intimidating. But you need to remember that technological advancements like a helpful Inventory Management Software or these useful handheld POS were created to help a business.
With a handheld POS, the bottom line is that restaurants can now provide a more efficient ordering system and create a greater restaurant experience for their patrons. And why wouldn’t you want to give your customers these benefits?
