How POS Manage and Optimize Table Turnover Rate

It is now becoming now a daily affair to dine out in a restaurant, or order food from the restaurant for home delivery or takeaways.

To provide the better guest experience almost all the restaurants are opting for table reservation system. Table reservation system is not only helping the restaurant customers by saving their time, but also helping restaurant to serve its customers in a better and efficient way.

Tables are reserved by the restaurant staff with a aim to offer pre- reservation of tables for the restaurant guests, so that when they visit the restaurant for lunch or dinner or eating out they are not required to wait for their turn to get the table.

In the old days the tables were reserved by the restaurant through telephone call by customers and done manually by restaurant staff. But now the technology is helping the restaurant in reserving tables for the restaurant guests. The restaurant POS system now have a built in system for table reservation for restaurant guests or a separate table reservation system can be integrated with Restaurant POS system. This system help the restaurant in catering the loyal customers during the rush hours and peak seasons and offer them table when they visit restaurant without any waiting time.

What is Table Reservation System and How it Works

Tables are reserved by guests by using the Table Reservation System through their mobile phone, telephone or through web . They can log on to the table reservation system and can select the following details:

Date and Time

Date and Time: Guests can book the exact time slot with date when they want to visit restaurant for dinning so that restaurant staff can be prepared for their arrival and make all the necessary arrangements to serve them in a better way.

AUDIO/VISUAL / 22 June, 2018

Restaurant Transformation through Audio Visual Systems

Restaurants are created to provide an enjoyable atmosphere to guests during each visit. However, even after the restaurant owner has taken care of lighting in the restaurant and invested a large amount of money to provide impeccable decor, the restaurant is often not in a position to engage guests.

Now, with a restaurant audio visual system, restaurants can easily present an entertaining and appealing atmosphere that can delight restaurant guests and attract them to visit the restaurant again and again.

Below, we discuss how an audio visual system can lighten the mood of guests in the restaurant, and why it’s worth investing:

Videos are there to set the scene

Customers visit restaurants to enjoy good food with their friends and relatives, and if the restaurant adds another component of visuals, guests have yet another way to enjoy and experience a better time during their visit to the restaurant.

Restaurant Audio Visual Solutions

Setting up large screen TVs in restaurants where guests sit, whether it is in the bars or strategically placed so that each guest can view, makes the establishment a warm and charming one. Many times, restaurants arrange special screenings of important events, such as the Independence Day parade or popular big games to attract customers to the restaurant. Investing in TVs, tablets and other smart devices not only enhances the restaurants image in the minds of guests, but it also makes them eager to come back when a big event is happening.

Pleasant tunes enhance the dining experience

If your restaurant guests don’t like the loud sounds of the restaurant’s TVs, you can mute the sound and play lovely music for everyone in the restaurant to listen to and enjoy.

Moreover, you can coordinate the day and time to the music you play, and change the tunes according to occasions and celebrations that are planned in the restaurant. Volume of music can be turned down or raised as per the talkative nature of your guests at any given moment.

Sports Bar Audio Visual Design and Installation 2

Install an easy to manage system

The system installed in the restaurant should be operated from one source. You should be able to choose what, when and where to play the music.

No music should be playing in empty bars and private dining rooms when no one is there to enjoy it. The control panel has the ability to play different playlist in bathrooms and open spaces in addition to what is being played in the main dining hall or bar.

A good audio visual system can change the perception of restaurant guests, who will know they are being looked after by being offered the comforts of the restaurant experience. This encourages them to come back again and again for a wonderful dining experience.
