Enterprise communication for real‐time news

LONDON, 14 June 2007 – Andromeda, the leading provider of delivery EPOS systems and internet ordering solutions, today announced the launch of an add‐in communications module for its Rameses POS system.

The Enterprise News Ticker module allows chains running Andromeda’s Enterprise software to post real‐time news updates to the sites. The updates are displayed, ticker tape style, on all EPOS terminals in each location. The system also provides further in‐depth information behind each headline shown in the news ticker.

This additional service meets a real and pressing need – how to communicate information to a wide network of sites in a timely fashion. Historically, this has been done via labour intensive “ring arounds” and “round robin” systems. The system is particularly effective in crisis management by passing critical information to each site instantly. For example, an alert can be transmitted in the case of issues with bank card processing. It can also be used to let the chain’s leadership team keep sites up to date with a weekly or even daily message.

The Enterprise News ticker is available for a small additional charge to all chain customers, as part of the latest version update.

Commenting on the announcement Mark Metcalfe, Operations Excellence Manager for Andromeda, said “Our customers have a real need to keep their restaurants informed of developments, both on a day to day basis and also in an emergency. We believe that the Enterprise Ticker will make a significant impact on our customers’ operations, driving tangible business results. I look forward to helping our customers get the most from this new service”.

Ben Portsmouth, CEO of Andromeda added “This announcement further confirms Andromeda’s commitment to support our Enterprise customers with world‐leading products and services. We will continue to ensure that our customers have a real competitive advantage by using Andromeda systems”.
