Restaurant Management Software

Restaurant Management Overview

What is Restaurant Management?

Restaurant Management Software assists restaurant owners and managers with automation of administrative tasks, workforce management & scheduling, inventory tracking & control, orders, and payroll. More often than not they include an integrated point-of-sale (POS) system, or a tight integration with a POS offered by a partner vendor.


Beyond these relatively straightforward functions, a restaurant management platform might distinguish itself by providing advanced and interpretable analytics and revenue tracking, an attractive and functional mobile app, and support for e-commerce with online orders and delivery support and tracking.


There is some overlap between restaurant management software and POS systems. Restaurant POS systems are primarily concerned with taking customers orders, submitting orders to the kitchen, processing payments, and providing basic analytics while restaurant management systems provide tools for both the back and front of house such as employee and inventory management.
