Slice Serves Up Pizza Point of Sale System

The POS system will allow for online, phone and in-person ordering, and deliver customer reports and data to owners.

Slice, the online platform for local pizzerias, has introduced its own point of sale system, as well as a rewards system for participating eateries.

The platform, named Slice Register, collates orders – online, by phone, and in person, as well as optimizing menus. Hardware that supports Slice Register will also be available to pizzerias on the Slice network.

The move comes after Slice’s acquisition last year of Instore, a point of sale software company.

So, how will pizzerias benefit?

What to Expect from Slice Register

According to the company, Slice Register is intended to aid the 15,000 local pizzerias on its network to consolidate orders from different sources in one place, handle customized orders and allow for more efficiency.

The platform also promises to deliver more data to business owners, making them more competitive with chain pizzerias that have ready access to customer data. This includes storing repeat customers’ information and purchase history, as well as allowing for personalized marketing messages via email and mobile.

Alongside the software is dedicated hardware, too. A card terminal, Slice register, cash drawer and receipt printer form part of the package. Slice Register has no start up costs for VIP launch customers, and those who sign up early won’t pay any subscription fees until 2022.

Slice claims that its hardware and software is easy to use for all staff, regardless of skill level, and offers 24 hour support.

Also announced alongside Slice Register, was a new awards program which allows customers to claim a free large cheese pizza with eight orders over $15.

“Most point-of-sale systems do a poor job serving pizzerias because they’re focused on a wide range of cuisine and other retail businesses. Slice’s world-class technology and expertise in pizza, combined with Instore’s accredited functionality, has enabled us to design a solution to give independent pizzerias what they need to thrive— a single workflow in which shop owners can manage deliveries, handle promotions and take orders online, in person or over the phone.” – Matt Niehaus, Senior Vice President of Payments at Slice

Choosing the Best Restaurant POS

Slice Register is certainly an attractive proposition, especially for the 15,000 businesses currently on its network, but it’s not the only option in town. So okay, there might not be too many exclusively pizza-focus POS systems out there, but the restaurant POS market is big, with lots of providers vying for your dining business dollar.

Of course, the pandemic has been a challenging time for the catering industry, but while eat-in premises have struggled, the online ordering industry is actually doing fairly well, with customers choosing to have food delivered rather than venture out. Reports show that business for online ordering apps actually doubled last year.

That’s why Slice Register’s ability to consolidate orders from online, phone or in-person is a huge boon for restaurant owners, who may have seen their customers ordering habits change drastically over the the last year.

There are plenty of other options that offer similar features though, such as Square POS, which allows restaurants to import menu items from online sales, and offer delivery and click and collect. It also supports Instagram and Facebook ad integration.
