Run your bar the right way with Harbortouch Bar
and Restaurant (HBR) POS system
Harbortouch is the ideal bar or nightclub point of sale system for any
serious business owner in the hospitality industry.
Time is money
No one knows more about the menu than you. That’s why Harbortouch will work with you to set up your menu for optimal order entry and fast transactions.
It’s not one-size-fits-all for bars and nighclubs. From happy hours to seasonal specials, make the most of your menu with flexible pricing and discounts.
Bar tabs not only encourage customers to stay longer and spend more, but also let owners and managers pre-authorize credit cards to ensure customers don’t skip out on the bill.
Managing tables and bar seats is a cakewalk
Multiple seating areas? No problem. Need to transfer tables to another server? No problem. Does table 9 want to split the check five ways? No problem. With the Bar Rescue POS system you can do it all (even if you’d rather not).
With Harbortouch Tableside™ servers can input orders directly from the table. Give your waitstaff a tablet and see the dramatic increase in order efficiency and accuracy.
Whether customers make online reservations or you’re managing a waitlist, you can do it all in one place with a Harbortouch point of sale system.
Never muddle core operations
From managing inventory to vendors and purchase orders, Harbortouch helps you track it all with ease — and in real-time.
It’s more than just X and Z reports. Evaluate sales performance, track hours, edit timesheets, calculate overtime, and manage job-based permissions.
Customer loyalty programs
Loyal customers are the gin to your tonic. Keep them coming back for another round with rewards, incentives, and special promotions.
