Harbortouch is a premium point of sale system that is owned by Shift4 -- a large payment processing company based in Nevada. Harbortouch is famous for providing its users with free POS hardware in exchange for a multi-year contract. It's an excellent way to avoid the high initial costs of investing in equipment.
The company offers two different point of sale platforms. The Harbortouch Echo is a software and hardware combination best suited to small businesses and quick-service restaurants. The Harbortouch Elite POS is a much more powerful POS platform built for large restaurants and chains. You can choose between these two hardware solutions when you first sign up for the service. All hardware systems come with a lifetime warranty that helps you avoid expensive repairs.
In terms of software, Harbortouch's system is extremely intuitive. Its straightforward design helps you cut down on training costs and avoid expensive ordering errors. It's incredibly customizable and makes it easy to build menus -- you can also offer promotions, happy hours, and other incentives to customers. It's easy to manage orders, tabs, and large parties using the various features on offer in this platform.
The system has a cloud-based component that helps you access reporting data remotely. You also won't have to worry about hardware failures putting your data at risk -- everything is stored in the cloud. Harbortouch has in-house credit card processing that accepts all major credit cards, including EMV payments.
Harbortouch Echo prices start at $29 per month. The more advanced Harbortouch Elite system is available at $39 per month. You can obtain free installation if you purchase the 'Elite' version of the system. Both systems include a 30-day trial period for all users!
