New PAR EverServ QSR Software Goes Live at Carl’s Jr. and SIP Coffee House

Next Gen POS Software Exhibits Flexibility for Every Size QSR Operations – From Large Chains to Independent Operators

New Hartford, NY – August 24, 2010 – ParTech, Inc. (PAR) today announced that its newly developed PAR EverServ™ QSR point-of-sale (POS) software has been successfully implemented at two significantly different quick service restaurant locations (franchised burger and independent coffee house).  This demonstrates the flexibility and scalability of the solution. ParTech launch partner S.L. Investments (CKE Franchisee) has implemented EverServ QSR in its Carl’s Jr. restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada and plans to rollout the solution to 37 of its Carl’s Jr. restaurants by the end of 2010.  SIP Coffee House, a single unit operator of a European style coffee house in San Antonio, Texas, has also successfully deployed the EverServ QSR solution.

“The new PAR EverServ QSR POS system has significantly improved our speed of service,” said Bill Thorson, Director of IT, S.L. Investments. “The conversational ordering feature allows us to process orders much more quickly, and the ease by which we can integrate external ordering capability gave us powerful access to new features like line busting.  We are impressed with both the robust customer service features of EverServ QSR and the strength of its enterprise management capabilities.”

“The PAR POS system has dramatically improved the efficiency of our restaurant environment, resulting in an enhanced customer experience and improved control of our operation’s profitability,” said Lauren Stanley, Owner, SIP Coffee House. “As an owner operator, it is great to have the same caliber POS system that large organizations have at a price point that is reasonable for independent operators. We are very impressed with how quickly we implemented the system and how easy it was to train our staff.”

“Built from the ground up using innovative technologies and an enterprise approach, we designed EverServ QSR based on four core principles: adaptability, modularity, scalability and usability,” said Scott Langdoc, Chief Technology Officer, ParTech. “EverServ QSR is extremely flexible. Its SOA and enterprise approach make it a perfect fit for managing franchised and larger unit chains and independent operators. With a growing network of distribution and channel partners and a solution that is designed for any size operation, now even the smallest restaurant operators can access the same advanced capabilities that large chain restaurants have.”

Carl’s Jr. Solution Profile

The Carl’s Jr. POS solution features PAR EverServ QSR running on PAR EverServ 6000 terminals. The EverServ QSR application is integrated with two other PAR EverServ modules to provide a complete enterprise POS suite. The PAR EverServ™ Operations Manager module’s POS back office tools provide managers with the real-time operational information to make smarter decisions faster while better managing costs and meeting operational goals. PAR EverServ™ Operations Reporting is a Web-based enterprise reporting service that consolidates data from multiple restaurants to provide up-to-the-minute visibility of financials, sales analysis, marketing, inventory and workforce status. The system is also integrated with QSR Automations’ ePic® Kitchen Display Software to maximize productivity, profitability and guest delight. S.L. Investments also tapped ParTech to assist with the implementation and provide ongoing maintenance services for the Carl’s Jr. restaurants that are deploying EverServ QSR.
