Your restaurant in real-time.


Entrée is restaurant point-of-sale, made smarter. Our reconstructed, intuitive user interface radically improves the way servers, managers, and staff complete their tasks. Real-time analytics, faster workflows for servers, and integrated front-of-house management streamline daily operations, increase efficiency, and reinvent how POS works for restaurants.

Our connected platform allows for smarter analytics not accessible with basic reporting on older systems and other mobile competitors. Inventory recommendations, employee efficiency metrics, and interactive revenue figures allow owners to make more informed decisions and create a better experience for their staff and guests alike.

Entrée is not simply trying to copy the interfaces and features of the longstanding and entrenched point-of-sale systems and bring them to iPads and other mobile devices. We seek to address the needs of modern owners and managers and understand the importance of intuitive user experiences, more than basic spreadsheets and reports, and help owners navigate in an extremely competitive industry. Smarter analytics is key to the future of the restaurant industry and we hope to provide our owners with data that is useful and give them confidence in the way they operate. Entrée’s focus on stability allows it to be a viable option for businesses of any size, and our belief in clean design allows restaurant staff to be more efficient, turn tables faster, and create a truly smarter restaurant experience.
