SumUp x Nory: An ePOS integration for visibility of restaurant performance

By Daisy O'Malley - February 19, 2024

We’re beyond excited to announce our latest partnership with SumUp

We’re working with SumUp to help hospitality businesses visualise and analyse all their performance data in a single location! Track customer orders, identify trends, and simplify your card transactions in the process. 

Read on to find out more about our new partnership and how you’ll get a ​​360-degree view of your business performance.

What is SumUp?

SumUp is a global financial technology company that has been providing businesses with a range of payment solutions since 2012. SumUp offers a full-scale ePOS system for users who want all the features needed to manage their business and accept flexible payments, all in one place.  

Point of Sale Pro is SumUp’s most extensive ePOS solution, supporting businesses by simplifying everyday tasks with its powerful features. 

Here are some of the key hospitality features when it comes to SumUp POS:

  • Access different ePOS options. Choose from different POS options to find a solution that’s best for your restaurant. Use a simple Air card reader, or implement a full ePOS system for your restaurant with all the bells and whistles. 
  • Customise your ePOS solution. Personalise your restaurant ePOS system to the way you work, making it easier to track and analyse key sales data. You can even customise customer receipts to reflect your restaurant branding! 
  • Streamline the food order process. Send orders directly to your kitchen printer from your ePOS to streamline operations, avoid miscommunication, and provide diners with the best possible experience. 
  • Pay low transaction fees. Keep costs down by paying low transaction fees (1.69%) on every card payment. Depending on your plan, you can even pay as little as 0.99% on each transaction. 

How does Nory work with SumUp?  

Nory’s collaboration with SumUp isn’t just about simplifying payment processing; it’s a dynamic partnership aimed at revolutionising operations for Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs), mobile businesses, and events. With our combined expertise and innovative technologies, you’ll have everything you need to succeed in today’s competitive market. 

Here’s a glimpse into how our partnership can benefit your business:

Do you need an integrated POS solution? Yes, and here’s why

Wondering if you need a POS system integration in your restaurant?

The answer is yes — we’ll show you why. 

Access real-time insights 

By combining your POS system with restaurant management tools, you get access to valuable, real-time insights. These insights can help you identify what’s going according to plan, what’s surpassing your expectations, and what could be improved in your restaurant. 

Are some menu items not selling? Revamp the menu. Is there room for improvement in your GP margins? Up your prices. Analysing all this data will help you identify these areas of improvement. 

Control restaurant costs

An integrated POS system helps you calculate and control restaurant costs. How? By comparing real-time orders with inventory costs, budgets, staff scheduling, and more. As a result, you can improve inventory management, reduce food waste, and create demand-based schedules to avoid under-or-overstaffing — all of which can help you save money. 

Take a look at Passyunk Avenue as an example. By analysing their costs with Nory, they were able to reduce labour costs by 26%.

“Knowing what’s out there, and for what price and complexity, I’d say Nory is worth every penny.”

Centralise your sales and financial performance 

Keep all your sales and financial data in one location by integrating your POS system. As a result, it’s easier to analyse. You can compare insights in real-time and make quick, smart decisions about how to develop your restaurant.

What happens if you don’t integrate your POS system?

If you don’t use a POS system integration, you’ll find it much harder to centralise and analyse key performance data. You’ll flick back and forth between different systems, trying to keep on top of everything at the same time

❗Spoiler alert: It’s hard. 

You won’t get the same overview as having everything in one location. And when you don’t have easy access to these insights, it becomes harder to analyse them. 

But with an integrated system? Everything is centralised. You can instantly access all the information you need in a single platform, making it as easy as possible to review your performance and make informed decisions about your business.
