Best Restaurant Management Software

Restaurant management software helps restaurant owners and managers organize back office operations. These tools are used by restaurant employees to keep track of inventory, payroll, orders, and analytics. Managers and owners can use these tools to compare business practices at multiple locations, ease the onboarding process for new employees, and track employee effectiveness. These tools provide a wide range of features for either niche restaurant types or restaurants as a whole. There is crossover between restaurant management and point of sale (POS) tools. Many restaurant management tools include POS features, but possess management tools as well.

To qualify for inclusion in the Restaurant Management category, a product must:

  • Provide tools for restaurant owners or managers to organize employees, orders, or inventory
  • Possess time tracking, analytics, or payroll tools
  • Be designed specifically for restaurants or the foodservice industry

We update your entire organization with the click of a button--simplifying consistency and encouraging continuous improvement. You benefit because your happy customers speak well of you on social media and they keep coming back. You also enjoy lower operational costs and increased employee job satisfaction.
