Getting the Right Pizza POS System
Pizza. The universally loved dish, a circle of happiness that brings people together. Whether you like your pizza Chicago style, New York style, deep dish or even with pineapple on it. The fact of the matter is, that pizza will be here for as long as humans remain on earth (even if its virtual reality pizza). With the ways that pizza has brought so much joy into our lives, allowing itself to be completely customizable based on our personal preference. It’s only fair that we give it the dignity of being sold on a POS system that showcases and allows for its endless combinations. That’s why finding the right pizza POS system should be a top priority for any pizzeria.
The Supreme Pizza POS System
Pizzerias need specific requirements in their POS system that other restaurants don’t. At any other restaurant, their menu items are pretty much set. Of course, customers modify things like no cheese on a burger, or fried chicken instead of grilled chicken but the modifiers are nowhere near as specific as they are with pizza.
One of the main attractions of pizza, is being able to customize it however you want. What kind of crust? Do you want meat on it? Do you want veggies on it? What kinds and how many? Do you want it on the whole pizza or just part of it?
There are a lot of things to keep track of while putting in a pizza order. That’s why there needs to be a POS system made for pizza shops that meets their unique needs.
Clover Offers a Great POS System for Pizza Shops
Clover offers a variety of POS systems that meet the requirements for pizza shops. The great thing about Clovers POS systems is that they are incredibly customizable. Business owners can tailor their machines to fit their needs no matter what business they’re running.
A pizza shop is typically set up to offer sit down dining, takeout orders and delivery. The Clover Station Duo is the all-in-one system that does it all.
This POS system includes:
- A 14’’ high-definition merchant-facing touch screen and 7” customer-facing touch screen. This is great for counter ordering.
- Cash drawer with bill tray, coin tray, two keys and a security cable.
- Wi-Fi and ethernet connectivity. You can have multiple Clover devices like the mini, flex or the kiosk within your business all connected. This means no orders will get lost even if they’re getting sent to the kitchen from multiple devices.
- Camera, scanner and PIN pad.
- Accepts every kind of payment, including Apple or Google pay and allows for tap, chip or swiping methods.
- Built in business reporting software. Allowing you to easily track how your business is doing weekly, monthly and yearly.
While all these features are pretty much essential to have, no matter what POS system you are using, the Clover systems allow you to download apps. The apps are what allows this system to be the perfect pizza POS system.
Clover Has All the Ingredients you Need
One app that is available to download on your Clover device is the Swift Pizza app. This app is designed to help your pizzeria handle in-person, online, pick-up and dine-in orders. On the Swift Pizza website, just input all of your menu items and what modifiers you offer.
- Specialty pizzas
- All of the different topping you offer
- And any other food items you have at your restaurant
Streamline your Orders With the Swift Pizza App
The Swift Pizza App organizes it all and makes for a seamless ordering process. Choose whether or not the order is delivery or pick-up/dine-in. The ordering screen shows an actual pizza and has all of the different options clearly shown. As the customer orders, the employee just taps each topping and whether that specific topping is going on the whole pizza, half of it or on just a quarter of it.
If the customer is ordering a specialty pizza that already has specific toppings included, the app will take you to the same ordering screen and have the topping already listed. If the customer wants to modify it, just hold down the topping they want to change and the options will appear.
This allows for ultra customization without confusing order tickets. It increases accuracy, meaning fewer wrong orders and happier customers.
There is also an option to update the status of the order. This is especially helpful for pick-up, delivery, and online orders. You can let the customer know when the order has been confirmed, out for delivery and the estimated ready time.
Become Your Community’s Go-To Choice for Pizza
Another great feature, that makes this the perfect addition to a pizza POS system is its customer prioritization. Once someone finds a pizza place, they like, they will usually maintain their loyalty. The swift pizza app saves customer information, making repeat customer orders fast.
The app also allows for date and time specific coupons. Say your pizza shop is slow on Monday mornings, you can create a coupon that gives customers discounts on their orders if they order Monday morning. This encourages customers to order during that time and helps make your slow business hours a little more profitable. You can create an array of coupons for different events or times.
Increased Efficiency in the Dining Room
The Swift Pizza app also has features for your sit-down service as well, you can assign tables and create orders that way. Just press the pay later option and the receipt will be sent to the kitchen. When the customer is ready to pay, select offline orders, select the table and press pay.
The addition of this app to your clover device creates the best pizza POS system for all of your pizzerias needs.
Never Lose a Delivery Again. Pizza Delivery Driver App
Having the option for delivery is essential for a pizza shop. It’s almost expected. Another app that pizza shops should have on their Clover device is the Delivery Driver app.
The Deliver Driver app allows you to easily keep track of where your delivery drivers are going, what orders they took and if they are holding cash.
Keeping track of all the different lines of ordering can become chaotic. Especially during busy hours. Knowing what orders are going where and who’s taking them is a must when it comes to pizza delivery.
The app makes selecting employees simple. Depending on how you run your business, some employees might have different roles on different days. You can load all of your staff onto the app and then select which employees are doing delivery for the day.
If you are using the Delivery Driver app in conjunction with the Swift Pizza app, you can easily transfer over orders and select what employee you want to deliver which orders.
