To ensure catering orders are not just ordered and forgotten (then wasted by the restaurant and inventory is lost), deposits can be taken from the guest upon ordering then managed until fulfillment. Deposits help protect the restaurant from last minute cancellations or orders that are not picked up. Since POS systems can store previous orders, catering features on the POS can schedule the same order for fulfillment in a way that is scheduled for convenience. Payment can even be stored and applied automatically. It's a myth that a POS system solely benefits the check-out experiences.9 December 2021
