The primary responsibility of a restaurant POS system is to provide reliable tools that support operations during business hours. To that end, the primary locus of the POS functions must be in the store. Placing orders, printing them in the kitchen or displaying them on a VDU, taking payment must all function perfectly 100% of the time. POSitouch uses a small footprint Thin Client architecture for the POS system in the store that can operate fully with or without an Internet or WAN connection to the outside world.
The backoffice applications that surround the POS, reporting, time and attendance, labor scheduling, inventory control, data warehousing, reservations, all are ideal candidates for Cloud Computing. POSitouch facilitates systems with a field hardened POS coupled to a small or zero footprint backoffice whose functions all exist above store or in the cloud.
