Hospitality POS system: link your online reservations

Resengo - Table plan linked to your POS system

Are you already making the most of your cash register system? Chances are you can get a lot more out of it. For example, get to know your customers better thanks to the link between Resengo and your POS system, such as Lightspeed, unTill or Trivec.

Also curious which dish your regular guests prefer? Curious how much people spend in your restaurant on average? Would you like to be able to link reviews to orders? Then link your favourite cash register system to your Resengo system. The connection between Resengo and the cash register systems of Lightspeed, unTill and Trivec easily provides the solution!


What are the benefits of linking your POS system and your Resengo?

With an online reservation system, you manage reservations easily and quickly (before, during and after the shift), and with an online cash register system, you take care of the smooth follow-up of payments during the service itself. So orders and bills are effortlessly linked to your reservations. Reservations are made via Resengo and, thanks to the link, arrive in your catering POS system. The table number, guest name, staff serving the guest and all comments are also synchronised.

Is your guest seated at the table? Then open his bill. In your cash register, add all the dishes he consumes and finally finalise the order. Meanwhile, in Resengo Tables you can easily and quickly check the status of reservations. This makes organising your table seating or your shifts child's play. In addition, the link ensures occupancy optimisation as tables of guests who leave are immediately released for new guests who arrive at a later time.

Resengo's link to these POS systems also allows you to link a guest to a table. This synchronisation means you know exactly what each visitor consumes and spends in your restaurant. With this information, you can request statistics from Resengo about the average amount a guest spends, the actual time guests stay seated, which dish is popular, and so on. You can also link specific feedback to specific dishes, payments or staff members. So you can easily find out what made that one guest so happy or what went wrong with a complaint. With the contact details of your customers, you can then effortlessly build a guest database. Useful, because with Resengo you can send out newsletters to this entire base or to a specific target group, or you can even use the guest list of an event.

Not to mention, using both systems will save you a lot of time. By sending automatic, personalised e-mails, Resengo reduces the number of no-shows, strengthens communication with the guest and makes telephone traffic remarkably quieter. In turn, a cash register system saves you time when calculating your checkout and links each paid product to a guest from Resengo. That way, you know how much each guest spends in your establishment and what your regular guests prefer. In short: you get to know your guests much better and have the time to give them the attention they deserve.


Which POS system best suits your specific needs?

Whether you run a coffee shop or a large restaurant chain, every business needs an efficient and simple POS system. Each system has its own strengths, specific target audience and price tag. Read more below about the different POS systems with which Resengo can easily connect, and choose the one that best suits your restaurant! Already satisfied with your POS system?
