Cutting Edge Technology for Food Trucks
Across all industries, it’s important to keep up with the technology to stay current, relevant, and competitive. It’s no different for food truck owners. As you keep up with tech trends, you’ll be able to operate your business more efficiently and more profitably. Here are three technologies to consider taking advantage of.
Mobile POS System
With a mobile POS (Point of Sale) system, your business can offer more payment options to your customers. One excellent POS system is the Square system. With Square POS, you can take secure payments in person and online. The Square system also manages customer loyalty programs, and it’s who we chose to integrate into WTF for commission-free mobile ordering. What’s more, the Square POS system goes beyond finances with the integration of staff scheduling, employee timecards, and full-service payroll. Square takes care of the most critical administrative tasks within a single tool.
Digital Display Menu
With a digital menu board, you can design your menu and change it up from any device, at any time, in just a few minutes. This saves you a ton of time and looks more professional than other types of menu boards. Plus, you get a world of graphics and fonts for greater customization. You can even create multiple menus for different times of the day or with the changing seasons.
Food Truck Locators
Half of the challenge of owning a food truck is making sure that people can find you. This can be a difficult task, especially if you tend to move around a lot. One of the best ways to increase sales is to enroll in a prominent food truck locator. There are food truck locators online, as well as food truck location apps. WTF is a marketplace platform offering GPS location, push notifications, mobile ordering, deals & daily specials promotions, booking opportunities, and more.
Your business might be small, but it’s still vital to stay current with the available technology. Technology is there to streamline tasks, draw in more customers, and make your life easier. If you want to incorporate more tech into your business and don’t know where to start, consider a mobile POS system, a digital display menu, or, most importantly, getting the word out through a food truck locator.
