Moneris Adds Lightspeed Restaurant to iPad POS Solutions
Toronto-based payment processor Moneris Solutions Corp. added Lightspeed Restaurant to its suite of iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions. The all-in-one management tool for full-service and fast food restaurants debuted at Restaurants Canada's RC Show, and comes as part of an evolving partnership with Montreal-based software company Lightspeed POS Inc. The product marks Moneris' first cloud-based iPad POS solution catered to restauranteurs in the province of Quebec.
The partnership with Lightspeed provides businesses anywhere in Canada with a modern POS and reporting system to create memorable restaurant experiences for patrons. Offering tiered hardware packages and à la carte options, Moneris delivers products fitted to help small-to-medium businesses efficiently manage their operations from the back-of-the-house to the dining room floor.
Moneris recognizes the opportunity and growth in this uniquely regulated and fast-growing market that is often underserved. In 2017, there were 22,600 restaurants, bars and caterers in Quebec, and a reported $15 billion in annual sales generated by the restaurant industry. Lightspeed is the first company to manage cloud-based versions of the Sales Recording Module, or modules d'enregistrement des ventes, an in-store device that Quebec restaurants must use to report sales to the government.
Available in English and French, Lightspeed Restaurant comes backed with the reliability of Moneris' 24/7 customer care, Concierge and Installation Services, and secure payment processing. It is equipped with modules to manage back-office operations, tableside and self-ordering menus, floorplans, staff training, and inventory. The solution also boasts centralized customer and location management features to help businesses elevate their hospitality business as they grow.
