As a first step toward unlocking more POS options for campgrounds on Campspot, we launched our first integration with Lightspeed. In addition to being a leader in the POS and payments space serving more than 168,000 locations worldwide, Lightspeed is also a highly-requested vendor among Camspot Customers. 

The inaugural integration is with Lightspeed Restaurant POS. This comprehensive platform is designed to streamline all restaurant operations, and empowers campgrounds to more seamlessly manage the dining and cash-out experience. 

The decision to launch the Lightspeed Restaurant POS integration first was based on key customer feedback. It addresses operational gaps and specialized needs unique to restaurants and food and beverage applications. This aligns with our goal to provide comprehensive solutions catering to the diverse requirements of our parks.

“Every campground is unique and has a unique set of needs. We believe Lightspeed has the best options for helping Campspot customers solve some of their most pressing needs,” says Ryan Powell, Technical Product Manager at Campspot.

Key Features of the Lightspeed Restaurant POS Integration

Key features of the integration enable users to look up current guests in Lightspeed by name or campsite and connect their dining transactions to their Campspot invoice. The integrated payment solution allows guests to charge their restaurant bill to their campsite or pay for it using the card already on file. 

This integration unifies the campground and restaurant operations for a more efficient workflow; it gives guests the opportunity to charge meals directly to their saved payment method in Campspot; and it simplifies the cash-out process, which can not only save time for the staff but also ensure accuracy in transactions.

What’s Next at Campspot

This initial integration with Lightspeed opens the door to future POS integrations on Campspot, and helps to close gaps in the POS needs of our customers.

Upcoming integrations will focus on retail, ticketing, and enhancing various aspects of the guest experience. Keep an eye out for Lightspeed Retail and Toast coming soon. Campspot users can also look forward to CRM and accounting integrations, and continued improvements to our existing OTA integrations.
