Easily Update & Manage
Your Toast POS

Add a menu item, change the layout of the menu buttons, start an 86 countdown, or mark an item as out of stock in seconds, right from the tablet interface, and sync the changes to all devices with no interruption to your ability to serve guests.  

Best part? You don’t need to be on site to make any menu or system change. Just log in from any internet-ready device and you are good to go.

"I've worked with a lot of point-of-sale companies. Before Toast, I'd never had my expectations completely met when it came to the type of support we received. The level of ownership that Toast has taken over our success is something I've never seen from any other restaurant technology company."
– Ben Kaplan, Director of Operations, Barbara Lynch Gruppo



It's Never Been Easier to Place An Order

Are your servers wasting valuable customer time rushing back and forth from the kitchen or terminal to their tables? With POS tablets, servers can fire orders immediately, so they can better focus on increasing guest satisfaction.

What’s more, the touchscreen streamlines the ordering experience; with only a few taps, you can improve throughput by 15% or more.

Guests Pay At The Table

The pay at the table experience is revolutionary. Now, guests don’t have to say goodbye to their credit card as servers whisk it to a terminal; instead, they can pay, sign, and tip right at the table using our tablets. Our restaurant point of sale software also allows guests to rate their experience and join your loyalty program within that same interaction.
