    POS-Advice.com About Us

    The restaurant POS (point of sale) system is critical to a restaurant’s overall operation and represents a significant investment with opportunities for long term benefits or disaster. Restaurant POS Advice was created to provide up to date, free, independent and unbiased restaurant POS information, resources, white papers and educational videos for restaurateurs so they can make an informed restaurant POS purchase decision.

    We have sold, programmed, installed, trained, serviced and supported hundreds of restaurant POS Systems from several major POS (point of sale) developers and provided nationwide 24/7 support to these accounts. We have consolidated our years of experience with the latest hospitality POS information to create POS Advice to save you time, money and aggravation.

    • We KNOW Restaurant POS
    • We KNOW Credit Card Processing

    POS Advice provides free white papers, product reviews, resources and videos for restaurateurs considering new restaurant technology. Our information includes interfaces to credit card processing, gift card systems, payroll services, online web ordering, delivery tracking and mapping, liquor dispensing, surveillance, loyalty, mobile marketing, online reservations and accounting systems to name a few with new applications becoming available almost daily.

    There are over 160 traditional restaurant POS software solutions, a few hundred POS apps, hundreds of local POS resellers and Internet based resellers all marketing restaurant POS systems. Additionally most credit card processors are now selling POS systems bundled with their credit card merchant processing services. Since most of the sales people selling these restaurant POS systems work on a commission basis they usually don’t have your best interest in mind.

We subscribe to all major hospitality magazines and publications, attend the annual National Restaurant Association Show, regional restaurant shows and Retail Solutions Providers Association functions, receive numerous hospitality and POS newsletters, participate daily in fifty LinkedIn credit card, restaurant and POS related groups, follow many hospitality and POS related companies with LinkedIn.  We also take full advantage of our twenty plus years of industry experience and personal contacts to stay up to date so we can answer your questions with relevant and accurate information.
