TouchBistro iPad Restaurant Point of Sale - TouchBistro

Digital - Food & Drink

- Gold

TouchBistro is an innovative, easy, smart, and complete iPad point of sale app built specifically for quick and full-service restaurants, bars, cafes, and food trucks. The business app is available exclusively on the Apple App Store for use with iPads. While TouchBistro is a business app, our team built it with a firm focus on scientific design. Unlike the plethora of traditional and dated point of sale software available, TouchBistro has distinguished itself by focusing on, and rigorously testing, its design with real humans in the real world—real restaurant servers, managers, and owners. Our approach to design and rapid testing has helped us turn our software into something that has become integral to the daily working life of those who use it.
