I live in a nation where job opportunities are aplenty for front line workers especially in the food and beverages sectors but manpower is lacking. Many of our young people have gone overseas in search of greener pastures. Our business sectors have been depending largely on foreign workers to fill these vacancies but recently, there is a reduction in the intake of foreign workers. Some businesses for example like the food and beverages business have temporary closed down when their foreign workers’ permit were not extended. Because of this and the other reasons, many businesses have suffered loss.
The insufficient supply of manpower to the business sector have driven many business owners to turn to POS machines as a solution to replace the lack of manpower. Depending on the scale of the business, setting up and running with an efficient personalized POS system will definitely help reduce your dependency on manpower. Running with less manpower helps to reduce cost because the POS system takes over most of the running of the business.
With a personalized POS system, you will only need one front line staff at the payment counter to handle table reservations, takeaways, receiving food orders and payment transactions. With the cutting down of the number of staffs, you also save back on the cost of staff employment.
In some businesses outlets, customers can place their orders through the e-order tablets set up at the table where they are seated. Some outlets even set up e-booths outside their stalls for ordering and payment of food before they approach the food counter to be served. The younger generations adapted easily to this e-order systems where they can take their time with their orders without the waiters or waitresses hovering over them.
