4 Essential POS System Features for Bakeries

If you are looking for a new bakery POS system, make sure you have all the key ingredients for success, by checking your system is equipped with the following features:

1. Integration with Cybake

Cybake is the leading bakery production software. When seamlessly integrated with your POS system, Cybake gives bakeries like yourselves vital functionality to grow your business.

Cybake is essential for making the most out of your POS sales data, by forecasting demand and automating stock reconciliation, helping you control costs and waste, whilst increasing sales and repeat business.

Quantum, Cunninghams’ POS system, offers a valuable feature for bakers by allowing the import of allergens, ingredients, and nutritional information from Cybake software. This enables you to create accurate produce labels straight from your till. Given the introduction of Natasha’s Law, the ability to print labels with correct product and allergen information has never been more crucial.

4. Mobile POS

Reducing queue times, by running a fast reliable POS system, is key to keeping your customers happy. By providing a seamless and swift experience, you will not only enhance customer convenience, but also boost sales and increase customer loyalty.

The best way to achieve this is by having a mobile POS system which integrates with your main POS solution. This means you can take orders on your tablet, without having to return to the till to process the order. This is especially invaluable during busy peak trading times.

By being out on the shop floor, it also makes it easier to interact with your customers, recommend new products and upsell. With a mobile POS system, your sales will not only become quicker, but also more profitable.

Cunninghams recently helped Warrens Bakery save time and money by installing mobile POS systems across their branches. By introducing a mobile POS, staff could use our Quantum stock module on Windows tablets, instead of using the busy tills. Staff could easily monitor stock and deliveries, whilst reducing waste and expenditure across their 42 sites.
