New POS System Operates on Private Internet!

This was the first visit made to a Pizza Expo for ABS internet systems. They have developed and manage a POS system built just for the pizza industry. Originally developed for Round Table Pizza Organization, it has been refined and adapted with the help and feedback of many independent pizza operators. What's different about this system is that most of the work takes place away from your store in a secure server that is part of a DSL independent network. In other words a privately managed internet which is faster, free of tampering, and much more secure. The pizza store does not need a lot of computer power. All that is needed in the store is a system of less expensive computer monitors that tie into the overall system.

Cash In On ATM Opportunity

Are you tired of the increasing number of credit card transactions costing you money? Savvy restaurant owners are learning they can get paid to take cash when they install a cash machine – or ATM – in their restaurant. E*TRADE, in partnership with FireFly Technologies, was at the pizza show to educate pizza operators about this concept. When your customers use the convenience of an ATM in your location to get cash, you get paid for every transaction. And you offer your customers an alternative to using credit cards and checks. To find about more about how to qualify for an ATM machine in your restaurant, call FireFly Technologies at 866-678-6781.

Internet Ordering Capability Now On Your Website

If you have a computer, you have a POS system. And now when customers go to your website, they can order a pizza which appears to be ordered directly from your website. The resulting order will be printed on any of your store printers or it can be sent directly to your computer database. Even if you already have your own POS system, Web4POS can work with it. It can technically send internet orders directly into your existing system.

What Do Kids Like This Year?

According to Hector Duran this year has been really good for yo yos and key chains. Kids love to collect key chains and show them off on their school back packs. As far as licensed merchandise the girls are going wild for the Power Puff Girls Toy Line and everyone likes any merchandise with Looney Tunes Characters.

Ever used one of these?

From National Marketing, it's not a midget pizza bag. It's a hoagie bag. Why didn't you think of that?
