The Basics of POS
Digital POS systems have revolutionized how small businesses operate. In addition to letting business owners track sales, cash flow, and inventory in real-time, they also streamline the ordering process in restaurants, bars, and other vendors serving food and drinks.
DoorDash can be integrated with a number of leading POS providers, so that everything — menu data, ordering channels, and sales — is in one place, no matter where the order came from.
The Perks of Integration
Integrating DoorDash with your POS system simplifies running your business in a number of ways.
Automatic updates. Any changes you make to your menu on your POS system will be automatically reflected on your DoorDash menu.
Less hardware. Integration means all your orders — dine-in, takeout, and delivery — will show up in the same place. There’s no need for an extra tablet (and no need to train your staff how to use multiple platforms).
Fewer errors. With DoorDash orders sent directly to your POS, there’s no need for your staff to manually enter off-premise orders into your POS system, reducing the possibility of human error.
Smoother operations. Using a POS order protocol is associated with 15-35% better order quality — that means fewer missing or incorrect items and cancellations.
Track your performance. You can review and analyze your DoorDash ordering trends directly from your POS system.
Currently, DoorDash supports integration with 15 different POS systems, including Toast and Square, which are the most popular POS systems among restaurants in the US.
