A Point of Sale terminal is an electronic system/device that accepts cashless payments from customers at a point of purchase. The use of Point-of-Sale terminals has completely revolutionized the restaurant and hospitality industry. The major impact is witnessed in fast food franchises, where the manager is able to take order from the customer and send it wirelessly to the kitchen, thereby reducing the time taken to process the order. Thus, use of POS terminals enable manager to speed-up the complete order taking process and reduce time taken to serve, thereby improving the operational efficiency and customer experience. Furthermore, the use of POS systems significantly reduces the total operating cost and mistakes made due to human error, which, in turn has a significant impact on the overall profit margins earned by restaurants. Profits earned in the hospitality industry are majorly driven by customer experience. As such, offering excellent customer service not only in terms of food quality, but also secured payment processing is very crucial. Security concerns related to data breaches have inhibited the use of POS terminals in the yester years. However, the vendors in collaboration with software developers have been able to develop POS terminals which make debit card/credit card processing secure and seamless. In addition, POS terminals enable lodge/hotel owners to process complete lodging application data including check-in, express check-out, date and arrivals, online reservations, gift and loyalty cards efficiently. Thus, need for efficient operational management coupled with the customer-centric focus is collectively expected to drive demand for POS terminals in the hospitality sector.
