What is a POS?

A mobile restaurant point of sale system changes everything.

POS, Defined.

Point of sale, n: technology that takes payments, processes orders, provides detailed reporting, and much more.

Just about the only thing a leading POS system won’t do is make your restaurant’s food.

A mobile POS is the definition of success

Orders

Press a few buttons on a touch screen to take orders.

Tickets

Press a button, and a ticket appears in the kitchen, either on a screen or printed out.

Payments

A customer who pays with a credit card can watch as you charge the card tableside.

Receipts

Customers can choose to sign electronically and have their receipts emailed to them.

Reports Access

Access thorough reports without having to enter any data, avoiding human error.

Reports Data

See easy-to-analyze, real-time reports—on everything from sales to labor—all in one place.

All success takes is a screen.

All-in-one restaurant management, right at your fingertips.

For decades, restaurants used point of sale systems that we now refer to as legacy systems. They were big, prone to breakdowns, and expensive. In tight restaurant spaces where every inch counts, they took up valuable real estate with their clunky hardware.

In 2010, a new type of restaurant POS appeared in the App Store. When Lavu launched, it introduced a new era for restaurants and bars. Comprehensive management tools could now fit in your back pocket – literally.

The future of restaurant and bar management is here. It’s small yet mighty.
