Are you checking your QSR data daily?

Data should be the driving factor for all decision-making processes in a business. A restaurant’s POS system is a gold mine of information and you should be collecting and analyzing that data in real-time, every single day.

Tracking your restaurant’s data frequently will help you better understand how your customers are interacting with your brand. That kind of customer knowledge is what leads to money in your pocket.

As a restaurant operator, you have questions like:

How do my sales differ from breakfast, lunch and dinner?

What is the average speed of service in my drive-thru?

How are my seasonal items selling?

What cashier has the highest sales?

Your POS system holds the answers to all these pressing questions, all you need is the right back-of-house technology to put the data together for you. That’s where QuikStation Back of House Reporting comes into play.

This back of house restaurant management app allows users a real-time view of the most important pillars in their business, such as sales, inventory, labor and much more.

The fast-food industry is always on the go, that’s why QuikStation can generate live reports on demand whether you are using a computer, phone or tablet. So whether you manage one location or several, this user-friendly interface provides a foundation for accuracy and success at every level.

QuikServe: Champions for Cybersecurity

October, it’s the month where witches, ghosts and goblins come out. Those can stay, but there is one monster that we need to get rid of once and for all—cybercriminals.

October is National Cybersecurity Alliance Month (NCSAM) which is a month-long observation that was created as a collaborative effort between the government and the industry to make sure every American knows how to stay safe and secure online. This is the 16th year for NSCAM and it is co-led by NCSA and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency.

This year NCSAM is switching up the theme to be ‘Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.’ with a goal to encourage personal accountability and ways to be proactive in digital privacy and security while also educating on common cyber threats and cybersecurity careers.

In 2018, 1,379 organizations including—academic, public and private organizations and government institutions registered to be a champion for NCSAM. The Champions represent people who are committed to creating a safer and more secure internet.

This year, for the first year ever, QuikServe is excited to get involved and be a NCSAM Champion. We look forward to making a positive impact on the internet by educating our employees, partners and the community on how to be #CyberSmart this October.
