Restaurant point-of-sale developer SpeedLine Solutions Inc. has announced the addition of a range of management automation tools to the SpeedLine POS software.
The new release helps restaurant managers serve customers more efficiently during rush times — without manager intervention — by providing automatic updates to quoted delivery and ready times, based on the current kitchen production load and daily trends.
Staff management is faster and easier with a one-stop employee dashboard that gives managers instant access to employee tools. Managers can see who's on the clock and who's on break, send employee messages, edit the time clock or print an employee's schedule — all from one dashboard screen.
The new release also integrates video surveillance, closing the loss prevention loop with built-in alerts and exception reporting.
Operators can also set up new "limited-time" menu items, available only between certain dates. The menu items disappear automatically from the POS menu at the set expiration date, but remain available in the menu file so the operator can choose to extend the availability period or re-use the item later.
