Updated Weekly Performance Emails
Your Weekly Performance Report just got a makeover. The new version now includes a full analysis of your weekly purchases and a daily breakdown of labor costs, including salaries.
Complete Integration With Revel POS
Our integration with Revel, the iPad point-of-sale system, is now complete! Transaction-level sales activity and employee timecards will now seamlessly flow from Revel to KitchenSync in near real-time, combining your POS activity with all of your fully-managed accounting data.
Don’t forget! KitchenSync users earn rebates when signing up for a cloud-based POS system through our exclusive partnerships. We currently offer Revel, Breadcrumb, and Kounta subscriptions starting at $50/month! Let us know if you are interested in making a switch and we will help you breakdown the pros and cons of each system.
