Squirrel Systems introduces a publicly available edition of the Squirrel Cloud POS. This edition of Squirrel's next-generation cloud-based point of sale system is purpose-built for independent counter service, casual dining and table service operators who want to streamline operations and modernize their guest experience. This first edition will deliver a seamless guest experience from table to curb by consolidating online ordering, takeout, 3rd party delivery, or curbside-pickup at the point-of-sale.
According to HT's 2021 POS Software Trends Report: Accelerating Innovation, 25% of respondents plan to install POS software from a new vendor in 2021, up from 12% a year ago
Squirrel Cloud POS is born from Squirrel's expertise in delivering enterprise point-of-sale solutions to some of the industry's most recognized hospitality environments. Squirrel Cloud POS will give operators the widest choice of hardware and software partners in the industry to suit their unique brand and needs. Customers have the freedom to run their POS on proven hospitality-grade Squirrel terminals, or their choice of iOS, Android or Windows tablets. Built on an open architecture, Squirrel Cloud POS will let operators leverage restaurant technology partners for online ordering, 3rd party delivery, payments, kitchen automation and more.
Squirrel has worked with its Early Access customers and partners over the last eighteen months to adapt to changing guest expectations and demand for off-premise dining to deliver an exceptional experience both inside and outside the restaurant. Squirrel Cloud POS lets servers send orders directly from the table or patio, allowing them to spend more time with guests and lower the number of staff needed. In addition, integration with online ordering and delivery marketplaces helps restauranteurs reach new customers through phone, takeout, online ordering, curbside pickup, and delivery channels. Restaurants can use Squirrel Cloud POS to seamlessly feed orders from their branded online ordering website, or 3rd party delivery apps straight to the kitchen, reducing the overhead of manual re-entry and managing multiple menus.
The Squirrel Cloud POS is designed to be easy to use and easy to deploy. The front of house Squirrel Cloud POS App is available on the IOS App Store, Google Play and the Microsoft Store. It is easy for servers to learn and use either at the counter or tableside, and easy for managers to monitor daily and weekly performance from their mobile device of choice.
Squirrel Cloud POS Independent Restaurant Edition is now available at an introductory price of $57.50 per month for the first device and $20 USD per device thereafter.
