It looks a little different around here, doesn’t it? Welcome to the new On Point!
For three years, On Point has served up POS tips and best practices, customer insights, and articles on other restaurant and technology topics.
Today, we are pleased to unveil the new face of On Point: The Restaurant Technology Blog. To remind you where we came from, we invite you to take a look back at some of our favorite (and most popular) posts:
- Menu design and pricing is both art and science. So it’s no surprise that Menu Pricing Strategy: The Holy Grail for Restaurant Profitability? has remained a top read consistently since last year.
- In 4 Ways Restaurant Operators can Turn Negative Reviews into Positive Conversations in Social Media, we shared advice from the Social Media Roundtable at the International Pizza Expo.
- While social media is always a hot topic at On Point, restaurant marketing in general has been the topic of a range of popular posts, including this one: A Restaurant Marketing Action Plan to Draw Business Clients at Lunch.
- Many SpeedLine users comment that one of their favorite point of sale tools is deferred ordering for future sales. Restaurant Management: Systemizing Future Orders discusses the benefits of deferred ordering for catering service.
- In 2013, we started the year with 7 Tech Tips Towards a More Profitable 2013 for Your Restaurant Business. From socializing your marketing and enterprise reporting tools, to customer loyalty and streamlining delivery operations, this popular read includes ideas for any restaurant business.
While On Point looks a little different today, our mandate remains the same: to provide you with valuable restaurant technology news, ideas, and best practices. Sign up now to receive email alerts when we post new articles.
