There is no surprise today that Google recently revealed that the term “Magento” was searched more than the word “eCommerce”. As Magento is being adapted to a great extent by established large restaurant chain stores, the need to deliver your customer's food order to the correct stores point of sale (POS) with an online store is of vital importance. Having such an integration helps streamline your transactions, avoids double orders, prevents incorrect orders, missed orders and so on.

First and foremost, in order to integrate your Magento eCommerce system to your restaurant POS system, you need the ability to connect your eCommerce system directly to your POS system. This requires a secure VPN tunnel. Comsoft has created a device called the Micro Bridge Router II or MBRII for short. It’s a very custom designed bridge router that works with your Magento system. The MBRII connects via the Internet from your eCommerce system to your stores POS system, creating a reliable and secure VPN tunnel safely and securely sending orders between your eCommerce system and your retail store over the internet.
The Comsoft MBRII module requires our Magento Multi Function Host Extension, or MFHE, delivery module to send the kitchen orders to the appropriate device or POS system. The MFHE is a module that is installed in your Magento server.Currently available with Magento 1.x. Soon to be available for Magento 2.x.
The MBRII and the MFHE routes the kitchen orders to the appropriate DNS named device or IP address, to integrate your eCommerce system to your restaurant POS. In order to do this, we require the cooperation of your POS vendor to place food orders on your kitchen monitor and print orders to a local receipt printer.
Our programming staff will work with your POS vendor securing the proper instructions on how to create your Magento to POS API gateway, allowing your eCommerce system to move your customers’ orders to the proper restaurant POS system. This is a custom written application between Comsoft and the chain store. Our staff will provide continued ongoing support and upgrade service for your gateway whether the POS system or Magento is upgraded.
