PAR Brink POS – technology designed for growing businesses
New Hartford, NY – January 20, 2015 – PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR) announced today that Tom + Chee, a grilled cheese and tomato soup shop for the kid at heart, has selected PAR Brink POS and PAR EverServ® hardware. PAR Brink POS solutions are currently deployed in 9 Tom + Chee locations, with a full roll-out of all 19 stores to be completed by February 1, 2015 and plans to open another 31 stores by the end of the year. From a tiny food tent on a public square in Cincinnati, to a rapidly expanding franchise empire, the owners of Tom + Chee were looking for a point-of-sale solution built to grow with their business.
“The most elegant part of PAR Brink POS is that the solution is highly integrated and not a single system that has a number of sub systems slammed together,” said Dave Krikorian, President of Tom + Chee. “The cloud-based software architecture is designed for easy deployment and the real-time nature of the user experience – from administration to online ordering – makes it easier to run our business. It’s just smart.”
“PAR Brink POS with PAR EverServ hardware creates a complete solution that is a perfect fit for Tom + Chee,” said Karen Sammon, President, ParTech. “They were looking for a technology designed to grow with them, and we look forward to a long partnership together driving innovation.”
The selection of the PAR solution was based on many factors including:
• Fully Integrated Solution – Tom + Chee is using Brink POS cloud-based software with online/mobile ordering, built-in loyalty module, and the Brink POS kitchen video system running on PAR EverServ terminals.
• True Real-Time Enterprise Reporting – Brink POS cloud-based software provides access to up to date, consolidated data, to quickly analyze sales, labor, kitchen performance and more. Enterprise reporting makes it easy to manage and generate reports for one or multiple locations.
• Cloud-Based Solution with modern architecture – No back office server is required; data is safe, secure and accessible in the cloud without a long term contract. Offline mode protects against service interruption to keep your businesses running smoothly. Automatic data synch occurs when service is restored.
