If your company uses NCR Aloha, Micros 3700, Dinerware, InfoGenesis, Azbar or Maitre’D as your ePOS system, you can easily connect your account to Planday with Omnivore's ePOS integration platform to automatically import revenue data from your ePOS into Planday.
Below we'll walk you through how to activate and use the integration.
The integration imports daily revenue numbers for the past three days from your ePOS system to Planday so you can monitor revenue, scheduled labour costs and payroll percentages from the revenue report and inside your schedule.
Before you setup the integration, you first need to create revenue units for the relevant Departments in Planday. You can create the revenue units in Settings > Reports > Revenue.
