Keeping copious track of sales is crucial to the success of small businesses, and nowhere does that show more than in restaurants. Atech-mobile's Pozool POS (Point of Sales) system is a lightweight yet professional solution to keeping all those notes in one place, with some added functionality that makes this shockingly free app a cut far above the rest.
The keyword is "intuitive." Don't waste resources training front house staff on expensive and complex software. Having them play with the Poxool POS app for just a few minutes is enough to get started tracking what your customers are asking for, organizing and controlling the entire process from ordering to payment.
Customize the menus to match what's for sale in your establishment. When your front house staff takes orders, all they have to do is tap items as clients order them to generate tabs. The app keeps a running total, and will add tax and/or discounts if you choose. When the time comes to pay, the app will do all the calculations of splitting up the tab for you, either into even segments or by percentage. From there, it's one tap to send the completed, personalized check to the printer (or to an email account).
The app keeps track of sales over time in a series of graphs, so you can easily find out what are your best and worst performers.
One snag for me was not being able to find a place to enter an email address. It might be buried somewhere deep in the settings menu, but I hunted quite a while for it and turned up nothing - it should be easier to find. Being able to go back and edit orders - for example, if a table orders another round - would also be an excellent added feature.
Atech-mobile's Pozool POS app has room to grow, but even as it is, it should prove an enormous help for small businesses looking to get organized. I can't believe it's free.
