POS Accounting Integration

pos-accounting-integration-300x172Experienced restaurateurs know that delectable cuisine alone cannot build a successful business. For your restaurant or bar to become sustainably profitable, you need to have a complete grasp of all financial operations. A POS system that is integrated with your accounting program will allow you to actively monitor and use all of your restaurant’s financial information to ensure your restaurant’s profitability. Pinnacle Hospitality Systems’ point of sale systems feature seamless POS accounting integration so you can keep track of the details of your restaurant’s financial performance and take meaningful action to direct the course of your business.

Transferring your restaurant’s sales data manually into an accounting program can be a recipe for disaster. Transposed numbers or entries made into the wrong section can lead to a host of problems, including incorrect interpretations of the data and faulty forecasts. These errors can jeopardize the entire profitability of your restaurant. The seamless integration of POS systems and accounting programs provided by Pinnacle eradicates your restaurant’s financial vulnerability by

  • Eliminating double entry postings
  • Allowing you to access information quickly
  • Providing access to information that is precise, current, and accurate
  • Reducing bookkeeping and accounting costs

The POS accounting integration offered by Pinnacle seamlessly integrates your POS system with major accounting software. Pinnacle’s easy to use iControl POSintegration application allows for the import of all of your sales and payables data; the interface then validates the data to make sure the vendors actually exist, no data has been duplicated, and that all account numbers match. The accounting systems that Pinnacle’s user-friendly application currently merges with include:

  • Great Plains payables and sales
  • Cyma payables, sales and account receivables
  • Solomon payables and sales
  • QuickBooks payables and sales
  • Peachtree payables and sales

If your accounting package is not listed, please contact Pinnacle; our representatives will gladly provide a quote to integrate to your specific package with your POS system.

For a prime example of the many benefits gained when your restaurant POS is integrated with accounting software, take a closer look at the way Pinnacle’s POS systems integrate with QuickBooks. Pinnacle’s POSitouch-QuickBooks Interface, an all-in-one program from iControl Enterprise, imports your financial information directly from Pinnacle’s POSitouch POS software and automatically checks to verify the import status is correct. Pinnacle’s seamless POSitouch to QuickBooks interface allows easy mapping of the POSitouch sales journal to your QuickBooks chart of account; once mapping is complete, automatic posting drives all data directly into your QuickBooks accounting journal. You gain direct access to sales and profit figures, provided with up-to-the-minute accuracy. This easy access to the latest sales data allows you to monitor patterns related to your current sales, so you can create accurate, meaningful forecasts.

Pinnacle also offers InControl iPOS, which allows you to interface your POSitouch restaurant POS with QuickBooks General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, and Accounts Payable modules. Easy to setup and even easier to use, Pinnacle’s InControl iPOS allow you to make an accurate, balanced general journal entry into QuickBooks directly from your POSitouch system. You can effortlessly transfer your POSitouch sales journal, house charges and purchase orders to QuickBooks without having to use an involved or complicated file import/export routines; simply select the date from the screen and send it directly into QuickBooks.

Pinnacle Hospitality Systems offers three dynamic point of sale systems, POSitouch POS, Dinerware POS, and Calypso POS, all of which feature seamless restaurant POS QuickBooks integration and robust management features to put you firmly in control of operations at your restaurant or bar. Contact Pinnacle today at 1-800-771-7100 to discover all the ways POS accounting integration can simplify your restaurant management chores!
