Top 4 POS Systems for your cafe

Running a successful cafe takes more than just serving good coffee and having a photo-worthy interior. While these elements may draw in new customers, to make sure they return, you’ll need much more.

This means excellent customer service, short wait times, attentive staff, and accurate order-taking, among other things. A POS system can help you achieve all of this, in addition to keeping track of your transactions and providing you with valuable data about your customer’s spending habits as well as preferences.

In this article, we will explore four different POS systems such as StoreHub, Zeoniq, Hubbo and Loyverse to find out how they can benefit your cafe.

1. StoreHub

Food delivery integration

Offering food delivery services can be a game-changer for your cafe, allowing you to tap into a broader customer base and increase revenue. 

Foodpanda and Shopeefood are integrated with your StoreHub POS, making it easier for you to provide food delivery services to your customers.

On top of that, Beep Delivery is also integrated with your POS. And at just 9% transaction fee, you can open up additional revenue streams all while lowering your operating costs.

Orders from these delivery platforms are seamlessly routed to your POS system and kitchen, eliminating the need for manual entry or the use of multiple devices. This not only reduces errors but also maximise counter space efficiency.

Multi Location Management

StoreHub allows you to manage your cafe across multiple outlets from one dashboard. You can easily customise your menu to be the same in all locations or have different menus specific to each location. 

Managing your cafe from one dashboard also simplifies stock management and transfers between outlets, saving you costs on unsold inventory.

Customer Loyalty

Rewarding customers is a proven strategy for driving repeat business and growing sales. With a built-in loyalty program like Cashback, your cafe can offer an incentive to get them to spend with you again. 

SMS Marketing

In an age of information overload, SMS marketing stands out as a direct and effective communication channel. 

With an integrated system like StoreHub Engage that’s linked to your POS, you can send automated promo messages and reminders that encourage your customers to dine at your cafe again. 

This is crucial, as returning customers tend to spend 1.9x more.

There are six types of different campaign templates to choose from:

  • Cashback Reminder: Remind your customers to come back and use their cashback
  • Expiring Cashback Alerts: Bring your customers back before their cashback expires
  • Win back Lost Customers: Remind your old customers to come back with special promos
  • Birthday Promotions: Send customers a birthday promo to celebrate with you! 
  • Welcome New Customers: Give your new customers a welcome promo they can’t resist!

All you have to do is set it up once and your customers will be coming back to your cafe in no time. Automated promo messages and reminders encourages repeat orders and keeps your loyal customers coming back.

QR Order & Pay

StoreHub’s QR Order & Pay is a simple solution for dine-in, pick-up, and deliveries.

Your customers can scan a QR code to order and select if they want it for dine-in or takeaway with just a few taps. And to make it convenient for your customers, they can choose their preferred payment method from options like Touch n Go Ewallet, card payment, or pay at the counter.

There is less room for mistakes or miscommunication from your customer to your staff and the kitchen because orders are sent directly to your POS.
