Overview

Toast POS offers scalable restaurant POS and management solutions that include advanced features like table and mobile payments, inventory management, staff management, restaurant analytics, and more. Though their products might take some getting used to, Toast offers a unique service to large accounts, having their staff personally come to your business for on-site installation and staff training.

 

Features

Toast POS specializes in restaurant payment systems offering cloud-based restaurant POS and management systems. The all-in-one platform streamlines restaurant management by integrating online ordering, digital and physical gift cards, and built-in tools for staff management. Their system allows remote access to real-time reports so you can monitor your business from any device with internet access. Their available systems include inventory management, menu software, staff management, enterprise management, and restaurant analytics with enhanced encryption security. Toast POS also helps improve operational efficiency with the ability to process payments from the table or with self-serve Toast kiosks.

 

Pricing

Toast has several pricing packages, depending on your business needs. Software plans start at $79 per month and can be the perfect solution for quick service restaurants like cafes, ice cream shops, or even food trucks.

Enterprise restaurants with multiple locations or larger franchises can purchase the Enterprise Plan which offers even more features like senior account management, enterprise reporting, master menu management, master job management, multi-location reporting, and advanced discount and promo engines.

 

Ease of Use

Although their products typically require a 30 to 60 minute training session, the system is fairly intuitive and the touch-screen management system is easy to learn for the most part. With larger accounts, Toast even offers to have their staff personally come to your business to install their products and train your employees.

 

Customer Support

Toast POS has a dedicated customer support team, available 24/7 by online ticket, email, and phone. The customer hub also has a searchable database with information on training, systems status, product updates, VIP tables, and so on.
