New Hartford, NY – February 17, 2021 – ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point of sale (POS) software and integrated technical solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, has added i3 International, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) video solutions provider, to its growing Brink POS® integration ecosystem. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).
Using video camera data combined with information supplied from Brink POS®, i3’s advanced AI technology helps restaurants and other businesses create and maintain safe and secure workplaces. i3’s cameras work seamlessly with Brink POS® transaction data to give restaurant operators the information they need to reduce customer wait times, increase overall daily sales totals, and improve the bottom line.
“The restaurant industry has been exploring new ways to add AI to their operations for several years now. Integrating with i3 was something we knew would be beneficial to our shared concepts,” said Stephen Lee, Director of Strategic Partnerships for PAR. “By integrating i3 into Brink POS®, restaurant operators, especially those in the QSR space, can start making decisions that benefit their business, their staff members, and their guests.”
“In closely reviewing the Quick Service Restaurant industry, we are acutely aware of the reduced and depressed operating margins that continue to challenge expansion and growth for QSR owners,” said Vy Hoang, Chief Customer Officer of i3 International. “Operators are reporting turnover rates typically exceeding 75%, some of which are directly related to theft. Covid-19 has also created a dynamic and profound shift with drive-through, curbside and mobile transactions as it relates to speed to service and safety. Combining Brink POS® transaction data with i3’s video analytic solution, owners are reporting an immediate improvement in food costs and operational efficiency. We are excited to work with PAR and bring innovative solutions to our shared clients.”
