TouchBistro POS Provides Integration with QuickBooks

    Industry News | July 20, 2016

    TouchBistro, the leading iPad Point-of-Sale (POS) solution for restaurants in 37 countries, now offers seamless integration with QuickBooks, the number one rated small business accounting software.

    QuickBooks integration is provided as an option for TouchBistro POS app users. The integration helps restaurateurs reduce accountant fees and bookkeeping hours by eliminating time-consuming double entry of operating data into restaurant accounting records. The integration with QuickBooks is simple, utilizing SHOGO cloud-based integration. During the initial installation of the integration, TouchBistro revenue and cost categories are mapped to the related accounts the restaurant has set up in its QuickBooks application, ensuring accuracy between operational and accounting reports to better manage the business. Existing TouchBistro users on the latest version can simply activate the QuickBooks integration.

    “TouchBistro is committed to helping restaurant owners and managers improve their bottom line by seeking out new partners and the best technologies to increase efficiencies and simplify operations,” says Alex Barrotti, CEO and founder of TouchBistro. “By offering integration with QuickBooks within our restaurant iPad app, we are helping our customers to improve the efficiency of their back office operations.”

    TouchBistro is designed to work as the heart of a restaurant. It streamlines operational efficiencies, and helps to improve the bottom line and overall customer experience. Servers use the TouchBistro app to take customer orders tableside, or while patrons are in line, and instantly transmit the orders to the kitchen or bar for preparation. Bills are automatically calculated and split according to the patrons' requests, and bill totals are transferred electronically into integrated card keypads or mobile wallets for payment.

    TouchBistro features a full suite of cloud reporting tools to further streamline restaurant operations from seating and scheduling to inventory, payroll, tax calculations, and sales analysis. Total revenue and cost aggregate is calculated by TouchBistro as an end-of-day summary that can be broken out into the categories that work best for the restaurant, such as food, liquor, soft drinks, and dessert. With the QuickBooks integration, TouchBistro accounting data can be imported into the restaurant’s QuickBooks desktop or online app by categories or totals, thus eliminating the need for double entry.
