The National Restaurant Association's 2011 Restaurant Industry Forecast projected total industry revenues will reach $604.2 billion in 2011, marking the first time the sector's sales will eclipse $600 billion. And in this burgeoning market, technology plays a critical role.

Hospitality Technology magazine studies the restaurant industry's technology trends and recently released 2011 Restaurant Technology Study: An Industry on the Upswing. Twenty-two percent of those surveyed for the study said they plan to replace their POS systems within two years; 48 percent indicated they would do so within three to six years.
