Lightspeed Restaurant and Homebase Integration

Lightspeed Restaurant is a leading iPad based POS system. We integrate with Lightspeed Restaurant to offer merchants an all-in-one Scheduling, Photo-Capture Timeclock, and complete Timesheet management software.

Benefits of Integrating Lightspeed Restaurant and Homebase:

  • Homebase is the only scheduling and time tracking software that integrates with Lightspeed Restaurant.
  • Your Lightspeed Restaurant sales data will unlock the powerful labor cost management features and reports within Homebase, giving you greater insights into your business from the web or your mobile phone.
  • Your Lightspeed Restaurant employees can be imported into Homebase —  manually add employees in one place only!

What data syncs?

**All clock-ins/outs must be completed on the Homebase application to be visible and exportable for payroll through Homebase Timesheets**

Sales:

Homebase will allow owners and managers to view sales data.  This data is updated in near real-time and is accessible from either the web dashboard or the Homebase mobile app

Lightspeed Restaurant sales data in Homebase will report as Net Sales (sales-discounts-tax-tips – refunds)

If you have multiple stores, Homebase will display that data individually.

Locations

Locations can be synced from Lightspeed Restaurant to Homebase.

If you have existing locations in Homebase, you can simply go to Settings > Point-of-Sale-Systems > Click on Lightspeed Restaurant to initiate an authorization. At this point, we will connect with Lightspeed to confirm your account details and update your account so that it is synced with Homebase.

Employees

Employees should be entered into Lightspeed Restaurant. Employee names, phone numbers, and email addresses will be transferred into Homebase. You can edit employee information in Homebase by visiting the Homebase Team page.

Homebase will not import inactive employees.

Employees with emails will automatically get an invitation to join Homebase.

* Homebase does not import PINS or roles (including any manager roles) from Lightspeed Restaurant.

Connecting Your Accounts:

Lightspeed Restaurant users must first create a Homebase account in order to connect to Lightspeed Restaurant.

Here’s how to connect:

Once you sign up with Homebase, we will prompt you to choose your POS provider OR go to Settings > Point-of-Sale-Systems > Select Lightspeed Restaurant icon and enter the email associated with your Lightspeed Restaurant account.

You will see a welcome message verifying we have sent your request.

We will then contact Lightspeed on your behalf and connect your account. This process should be completed within 24 hours at which point you will receive a confirmation email from Homebase.

*You can still begin setting up your Homebase Settings and Roles/Departments but remember that Homebase will automatically import employees from Lightspeed Restaurant so we recommend waiting until the connection is made.
