The article deals with the benefits of point-of-sale (POS) systems for food service operations. A POS system can do so much more than tally sales and product movement. POS also can provide a single-source technology platform from which operators can manage their business and interface with customers. Used properly, POS is a management tool that can take managers out of the back office to interface with customers.
