• Breadcrumb adds inventory management, expanded features for delivery

Breadcrumb, owned by Groupon, has updated its iPad point-of-sale app for restaurants and bars. Breadcrumb 1.4 makes it easier for businesses to keep track of inventory counts, take delivery orders and apply and monitor tips, according to a company press release.

The updated solution simplifies daily operations with improvements shaped by conversations with hundreds of merchants and insights gained from more than 10 million menu items sold via Breadcrumb. Unlike users of outdated POS systems, saddled with infrequent, costly and complex updates, Breadcrumb clientele benefit from free, frequent and seamless upgrades, said Seth Harris, Breadcrumb's founder.

"Our venues never want to be in the awkward position of promising something to a customer that they don't have," he said. "Among other important upgrades, Breadcrumb 1.4 displays what's in stock in real time, so operators can provide a better customer experience."

Other highlights of Breadcrumb 1.4 include:

Added Inventory Management

  • Enables seamless uploading of new and existing menu items and inventory counts to all Breadcrumb terminals.
  • Displays how much is left of a specific menu item – ideal for venues with large but limited wine lists or daily fish specials and
  • Facilitates easier tracking of food costs.

Expanded Features for Delivery Businesses

  • Integrates Caller ID functionality without any additional hardware (Aloha and MICROS require extra $100 - $1000 device).
  • Faster phone order entry: automatically pulls up a customer's address and saves in the system for future use and
  • Empowers users to import/export customer data.

Improved Tip Application and Monitoring

  • Prints recommended tip amounts on receipts.
  • Permits venues to track declared server tips to aid with compliance and
  • Adds an automatic gratuity based on party size
