Lightspeed helps us break down how a server is performing in terms of hitting upselling goals. We can quickly look at if they are getting customers to add craft cocktails to 20% of meals, for example, or selling a bottle of wine to 5% of tables. Every restaurant has different priorities and Lightspeed can program around those priorities, but for us that information is super valuable and it helps us work with servers for them to get higher sales and thus more tips.
