New Remote Ordering Capabilities with SpeedLine 5.9 POS Software Release

LYNDEN, WA – February 6, 2007 – In the company’s third point of sale software release in 12 months, SpeedLine launched a major upgrade to its OrderLink Gateway interface with online ordering, call center services and self-order kiosk providers.

Enhancements give third-party ordering services access to the restaurant database to add customers, edit customer information, add and recall orders, request information on stores, streets and zones, and much more. As a result, online ordering providers can process and update orders easily, and remote call center agents can easily handle the order entry and editing tasks just as though they were at the restaurant.

                                                                                      

In addition, the new release extends the capabilities of OrderLink Gateway beyond ordering into EIS, providing tools for multi-unit restaurant groups and third-party companies to develop and integrate real-time executive dashboards.

 

SpeedLine partner Brygid Technologies uses OrderLink Gateway to integrate online ordering with restaurants’ POS systems. Brygid’s Sy Bor Wong adds, “With the enhancements in this new release of OrderLink Gateway, we can use the same level of security used for online banking to transmit orders over the Internet to the SpeedLine point of sale systems, helping restaurants safeguard their patrons’ personal information.”

The OrderLink Gateway upgrade has attracted a range of technology partners, offering SpeedLine customers a variety of choices for online ordering and call center services. In addition to Brygid, QuikOrder, Onosys, Golicious, Big Holler, and OnlineMenuOrdering.com have also integrated their online ordering services with SpeedLine. A number of other Web ordering and call center service providers, including iPie Solutions, are currently in the process of integrating as well.

In addition to the OrderLink Gateway enhancements, the new SpeedLine software release also adds support for new gift card processors, enhancements for credit card processing, menu panel design, and kitchen display integration, and new employee information safeguards.
