Are out-of-control costs threatening the viability of your restaurant? As a new restaurant owner, you are discovering just how difficult it can be to keep your expenses at a manageable level. You face a problematic challenge: how to control start-up costs and reduce ongoing expenses, while obtaining the necessary tools to effectively manage your restaurant operations. Calypso’s budget POS systems provide the perfect solution to your dilemma – our affordable, full-featured POS software was specifically designed to save you money while ensuring the ongoing profitability of your restaurant. Calypso’s versatile POS solutions improve the financial health of your restaurant in six essential ways:
- Minimizing Your Start-Up Expenses
Sticking to your start-up budget is easy when you choose Calypso’s affordable restaurant POS system, available for just a low initial investment. Integrated credit, debit, and gift processing is included, sparing you the expense of installing additional phone lines and obtaining expensive third-party processing equipment.
- Reducing Required Training Time
Restaurants typically have a high level of employee turnover. If your POS software is difficult to master, teaching your new employees to operate the system could end up costing you thousands of dollars in extra payroll charges. Calypso’s restaurant point of sale software is simple, straightforward, and easy to learn and use for even first time restaurant employees. If you prefer, training and programming packages are available so you can be sure you are getting the maximum benefit from every feature.
- Increasing Transaction Speed and Accuracy
Your cashiers will be able to process more transactions per hour, thanks to Calypso’s simple, department-driven screens and single screen order-to-pay solution. If you offer take home desserts, frozen yogurt, or a salad bar, Calypso offers barcode scanning and integrated POS scales with TARE weights so your cashiers can quickly process transactions without the need for rekeying or adjusting weights.
- Controlling Payroll Costs
The highest ongoing business expense most restaurants face is payroll, so Calypso is equipped with powerful time management features to keep these costs in check. Accurate schedule tracking helps you keep track of employee time and attendance, and you can easily manage and adjust punch times. Tip reporting and the ability to track tip vs. sales is included to aid you in achieving better payroll management.
- Improving POS Reliability
If your restaurant POS stops working, you stop making money! Calypso’s restaurant POS software operates without Windows, freeing you from the costly glitches, viruses, and crashes that can cripple systems running on the Windows operating system. You never have to purchase Windows upgrades or service packs again!
- Providing Comprehensive POS Support
Some bargain POS companies leave you stranded when issues arise, but not Calypso! We offer Full Service Help Desk support, available 24/7/365.
