Lavu vs Toast POS in our news:

2019. Restaurant management platform Toast raised $250M



Toast, which has built a popular platform for restaurant management, has raised $250 million on a valuation of $2.7 billion, money that it will use to invest in building technology to help restaurants with marketing, recruitment and operational efficiency, as well as start to think about expanding to more territories outside the U.S. Toast’s products include point of sale services as well as reporting and analytics; display systems for kitchens; online ordering and delivery interfaces; and loyalty programs. It also builds its own hardware, which includes handheld order pads, payment and ordering terminals, self-service kiosks and displays for guests. It also offers links through to a network of some 100 partners, such as Grubhub for takeout food, when a restaurant does not cover those services or functions directly, to help stitch together services to work on its platform.


2015. iPad POS software Lavu raised $15M



Lavu, that provides iPad-centric point of sale systems has raised $15 million in new funding led by Aldrich Capital Partners. It's a modern solution developed specifically for restaurants, bars & nightclubs, quick serve businesses, and other hospitality industries. Lavu has been profitable since its second month in operation. The company charges a licensing fee (around $1k per POS terminal) and a recurring monthly fee determined by the size of the restaurant. Lavu is currently being used by over 4,000 restaurants in 86 countries. Australia, Thailand, and Singapore are a few regions with especially high adoption. Unlike Square, another POS option for restaurant owners, Lavu does not collect service provider transaction fees. At 2 percent on average, this adds up quickly for a business that brings in tens of thousands in transactions per month.
