We started our business by bringing McDonald’s technological point of sale solutions, and improving the visibility of its financial flows. Since then, we have worked in many sectors and markets in which we have created systems to optimize their performance: casinos, cinemas, hotels, conference centers, theme parks, cruise ships or distribution, and of course, many fast food chains around the world like McDonald’s, KFC, and Subway to name a few.
