Lightspeed Restaurant Starter Kit

£319.00

Overview

Lightspeed Restaurant is an iPad based system built for hospitality from the ground up. Originally a Belgian company ‘POSIOS’, Lightspeed acquired it in 2016 and it now sits under the Lightspeed umbrella. It’s well suited to table service restaurants and high-volume bars. With a front-end application that runs on iPad, it can be used either fixed in a stand, or with roaming iPad minis for tableside ordering. The app has plenty of key restaurant specific functionality like table maps, coursing management, modifiers, complex kitchen routing and much more. Moreover, it has full offline functionality which is a must for Restaurants.

The cloud-based back office can be accessed through any internet enabled device and it includes detailed reporting which scales up with multiple sites. There are some really interesting data points around the performance of individual tables & restaurant sections that not many systems have.

Lightspeed offers really good 24/7 phone support for all customers which is included in the price of the software. An important thing to note is that Lightspeed don’t take the ‘one size fits all’ approach & they also have a Retail system. This is a totally separate product and was built from the ground up for retail stores.
