Harbortouch Adds New Delivery Module to Free POS System
By Mini Swamy
The Quick-Service Restaurant (QSR) and delivery industry received a fillip in the form of a new Harbortouch module, added to the national supplier's touch-screen Point-of-sale (POS) system program.
Designed specifically for the unique needs of that market, the Harbortouch delivery package helps merchants save time and money efficiently and conveniently, both of which are prerequisites for success in the industry, according to company officials.
Merchants can choose between the standard Harbortouch POS equipment or Harbortouch POS Elite, designed for high-end and high-volume merchants.
Officials elaborating on the features of the new delivery module, explaining the driver management tools made it easy to view the details and status of orders, while the advanced mapping functionality made it possible to cater to more than just one order during a single trip.
Further, the advanced caller ID integration helps manage incoming calls, view the order history along with other associated details and treat each call as a new order in just a single step.
The module fosters easy menu editing facilities and the ability to offer discounts, including daily specials. With advanced reporting functionality and employee management with built-in time clock, the Harbortouch QSR and Delivery package appears to have taken a huge step forward in this industry.
"The quick-service and delivery industry faces unique challenges that require specialized functionality, and we believe the Harbortouch QSR & Delivery module meets the unique needs of quick service and delivery restaurants,” Jared Isaacman, CEO at Harbortouch, said in a statement.
An approved merchant account and monthly service agreement are required to participate in the free POS program. All POS customers are entitled to free set up, training and installation of all hardware that is backed by a lifetime repair/replacement warranty and excellent support service.
Other news reports the launch of Harbortouch Tableside, where restaurant servers input customer orders directly into the POS software at the table via a dedicated Apple (News - Alert) iPad app that mirrors the main POS interface.
