Accounting & food delivery integration: StoreHub vs Loyverse
StoreHub’s Integration with Foodpanda and Shopeefood
Foodpanda and Shopeefood are integrated with your StoreHub POS, making it easier for you to run an efficient restaurant. Orders from these providers are sent directly to your POS and kitchen, so you won’t need to enter the same order twice or have multiple devices – reducing order errors and minimising counter space.
On the other hand, Loyverse is integrated with Otter and Orderlina.
StoreHub’s Integration with QuickBooks, Financio, and Xero
If your business is using any of these accounting softwares, you can easily integrate them in your StoreHub BackOffice.
You don’t need to manually write or print receipts to give to your accountant anymore. Because at the end of your work day, a shift report is generated to your StoreHub BackOffice.
Then two sales receipts are sent to your accounting system so that your inventory stock value is automatically adjusted there.
Meanwhile, Loyverse is only integrated with QuickBooks and Xero.
