Restaurant POS Systems with API

Goals

Compile a list of POS systems that provide API for restaurants in the US and provide their market share.
  • Provide a list of POS systems providing API for restaurants in the US.
  • Do not include POS systems that do not provide API or are used for retail or other industries, instead of restaurants.
  • Provide the 2020 and 2021 market share of POS systems that provide API for restaurants in the US.
  • Information on the market share of POS systems in the US for all industries is available but not desired.

Early Findings

Data Availability

  • The initial round of research indicates that data availability on POS systems providing API for restaurants in the US is adequate.
  • However, data on the market share of POS systems that provide API for restaurants in the US is not available.

POS System Providing API for Restaurants in the US

  • Getapp provides a list of "Best Restaurant POS Software with API". While this list is sponsored, we used it as a starting point to identify restaurant POS systems that provide APIs for restaurants in the US.
  • We reviewed each company's website, technical/API documentation, and/or their profile on Getapp to confirm that they offer API for restaurants located in the US.
  • These POS systems include:

Toast POS

Summary

  • During the initial round of research, we have identified 8 POS systems that provide API for restaurants in the US. We have also provided some highlights of Toast POS and its API.
  • We were unable to find the market share of POS systems that provide API for restaurants in the US.
  • We also looked for the market size of POS systems that provide API for restaurants in the US to triangulate the market share using the revenue/revenue estimates of the identified POS systems but the available information focuses on the POS systems market as a whole.
  • Based on the data availability, we can provide additional POS systems that provide API for restaurants in the US but we can not find or triangulate the market shares of these POS systems for 2020 and 2021.
