First Data™ Restaurant Solution -
This cost-effective, all-in-one point-of-sale (POS) solution replaces your cash register and payment terminal with a high-performance integrated computer, specialized software and advanced payment processing - everything necessary to manage all aspects of a small to mid-size restaurant.

    Key benefits include:

    Fast transaction approvals
    Most transaction approvals are received in just two to four seconds. When you speed up guest-check processing, you turn tables faster - and make more money.
    Real-time customization
    Automated menu management makes it easy to create, revise and customize menus or pricing for special events or promotions.
    Enhance security
    This PCI-compliant system helps increase security and improve loss prevention. You define security levels for each employee, which can help reduce theft and shrinkage.
    Better decision-making
    Get key operational data through a variety of reports, including job performance, payroll hours, voids, daily sales and more. For instance, you can track sales and ordering patterns by menu item to make smarter purchasing and menu-planning decisions.
    User-friendly, intuitive technology
    This hard-working system was created by restaurant owners, for restaurant owners. You and your staff will appreciate the intuitive, user-friendly operating system.


Point-of-Sale Terminals -
If an integrated point-of-sale (POS) solution is not the right fit your for business, we also offer a full line of POS terminals that are up to the task. Simply swipe your customer's card and the terminal does the rest. Additional functionality lets you turn paper checks into electronic payments. And if your business has you on the go frequently, a wireless device will allow you to process transactions from just about anywhere.


Gift Card Programs -
With gift cards continuing to grow in popularity, generate more revenue for your retail store or restaurant by driving traffic, attracting new customers, increasing sales and building awareness of your brand. With the First Data Merchant Branded Gift Card Program, you can offer your own store-branded gift cards to customers.


This software solution runs on a PC or PC-based POS register platform and provides all the functions of a credit card terminal, with the flexibility and power of a personal computer. Terminal redundancy is reduced, freeing up counter space for more products and POS marketing materials.
