  • 8. Point of Sales    Ruby Tuesday uses a Micros POS system to track and manage customer experiences in its restaurants. Point of Sale systems are touch screen monitors that are used to input customer orders that can be tracked and sent to the kitchen so meals can be prepared and drink orders can be sent to the bar. After a customer’s meal is done, the server is able to print the check directly from the monitor and present it to the guest.
  • 9. Benefits of the POS System    Reduces the waste and operating time by using the specific button-timing and quality of service. Greatly reduces human error. Is quite beneficial for a fast-paced dining environment where you are getting hundreds of customers coming in and out all day long.
  • 10. Complications in the System    the processor on the monitor is very slow itself; it sometimes takes a few seconds to recognize when information is entered into the system The system is complicated for beginners whv v o are not familiar with how the system works. The system can shutdown/crash
  • 11. Operational Issues    Some of the operational issues faced by Ruby Tuesday is how to increase the guest counts to be flat or up by 5 percent. According to Mr. Baron, the key measure is to be flat or up in sales in a downward trending market. Operation managers get evaluated by guest count compared to last year and also by profit margin, because of the economy.
  • 12. Table Management System    Ruby Tuesday specifically uses Micros TMS (Table Management System) to view all customerdining experiences from the time the first customer of the day walks in until the last customer of the day pays his/her bill. Micros TMS provides a user-friendly way of managing reservations, customer preferences, seating capacity, wait list management, and other special requests. This system allows management tasks to be eased so the customer can remain as the focus.
