The SunPOS system is designed specifically for restaurants. The system offers a user-friendly interface to help decrease staff errors and improve efficiency. SunPOS is a touch-screen system that includes many helpful features, including the option for integrated credit card processing. If you’re looking for a new system, this SunPOS review and profile provides all the info you need to determine if it’s the right fit for your business.
What You’ll Need
SunPOS is a software solution for Windows systems. So, if you already have a POS terminal, you can run SunPOS’ software. It’s compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10. If you don’t already have hardware, you’ll need a compatible system.
Additionally, to take advantage of integrated credit card processing, you’ll need a merchant account. SunPOS offers credit card processing, but it doesn’t specify costs or provide information on whether processing is through them or another company.
Like many point of sale systems, SunPOS is more robust than a simple countertop terminal. SunPOS’ features include touchscreen compatibility and kitchen displays, an integrated CRM and loyalty program, integration with Microsoft Streets & Trips, labor management functionality, inventory management capability, the option to split and combine orders, and fingerprint authentication.
Touchscreen Compatibility and Kitchen Displays
How many times has your kitchen staff made mistakes with orders because of messy handwriting? SunPOS’ touchscreen compatibility reduces those errors to ensure higher customer satisfaction, and optional kitchen displays can send orders right to a screen for the cooks.
Integrated CRM and Loyalty Program
Knowledge is power, and the more you know about your customers, the easier it is to keep them. SunPOS’ integrated CRM provides details on how often they come to your restaurant and their account status. Additionally, you can reward your frequent customers with a loyalty program. SunPOS lets them accumulate points that they can use at your restaurant to ensure they’ll be coming back again and again.
Microsoft Streets & Trips Integration
Late deliveries ruin your reputation. With SunPOS’ integration with Microsoft Streets & Trips, drivers receive accurate directions and your customers receive their orders on time.
Keeping track of which employees are on which shifts can be a hassle. SunPOS’ built-in labor management feature reduces scheduling headaches and lets you easily see who is scheduled when.
Don’t disappoint customers by telling them their favorite dish isn’t available. Track your inventory with SunPOS so you know exactly which ingredients are in stock and when to reorder.
Split or Combine Orders
Your customers want the option to split and combine their orders. SunPOS gives them that flexibility and makes it easier for your wait staff to process those transactions.
Biometric identification keeps your company safe from theft. SunPOS’ software is compatible with fingerprint authentication solutions to give you greater peace of mind.
SunPOS provides real-time sales reports. You can also see discounts and inventory tracking in real time, too.
SunPOS Pricing for Credit Card Processing
SunPOS’ website claims that it offers low credit card processing rates. However, it doesn’t publish these rates, nor does it provide information about compatible credit card processing companies. It’s unclear if SunPOS restricts processing to a particular company, or if you’ll have a choice of processors.
From its website, it appears that SunPOS also offers credit card processing using countertop terminals instead of full point of sale systems. The company also states that it may be able to offer a free credit card machine, though it’s worth mentioning that in many cases, such offers turn out to come with more expensive rates and fees to compensate.
SunPOS doesn’t publish the cost of its software on its website. The cost of the software is in addition to the costs of credit card processing and any hardware you may need to purchase.
SunPOS sells accessories compatible with its POS solution, including printers, scanners, cash drawers, guest pagers, employee swipe cards, customer displays, printer paper, and printer ribbons. You can choose the equipment you need to create a solution tailored to your business.
