Allentown, PA (9/18/14) – Harbortouch, a leading national point of sale (POS) system and merchant services provider, has released an online ordering module for its Harbortouch Hospitality POS systems. This service will allow restaurants with a Harbortouch POS system to accept orders online through a fully customized and branded menu.
The online menu syncs with the restaurant’s existing POS menu, so the initial setup process is quick and easy. Restaurateurs can select from various customization options to tailor the service for their needs including the ability to customize the look of their menu to match their own brand. Since the online menu is integrated with the business’s existing POS menu, any menu changes on the POS system are automatically updated online as well.
The online menu can be accessed directly through the restaurant’s existing website using a custom URL. In addition to placing orders on the site, the secure service allows customers to pay for their order with a credit card. The restaurant receives an instant notification when a new order is received online. This notification can be sent by email, on the POS system and/or by automatically printing an order slip in the kitchen. There is even Google Maps integration for delivery orders, including automated delivery charges based on geographic zone.
In addition to providing a convenient way for customers to order and pay online, the service increases sales and enables restaurants to build a customer database for marketing and loyalty purposes.
Harbortouch CEO Jared Isaacman states, “We are always looking for ways to add value for our customers by innovating and adding new features to our POS systems. This online ordering solution adds to the numerous other value-added services we offer such as our free online reservations module, our integration with Tabbedout mobile payments, and Lighthouse, our cloud-based POS management system.”
The industry-leading Harbortouch POS system is offered as part of the revolutionary “free POS program” that supplies a full-featured POS system to restaurants and retail businesses with no up-front cost.
