US Air Force Awards Contract to Intura Solutions for Hospital Cafeteria at Lackland AFB

ARLINGTON, TexasApril 7, 2009Intura Solutions, LP (Intura), a leading manufacturer of point-of-sale (POS) and enterprise management software for quick service, fast casual and delivery restaurant concepts, today announced that the 59th Medical Wing of the United States Air Force has awarded the contract to provide a new POS solution for the hospital cafeteria located at the Wilford Hall Medical Center (WHMC).

“Intura is excited about winning this government contract with the US Air Force for one of the largest military hospitals in the world,” stated Joe Berryman, vice president of sales for Intura.  “One of their primary concerns when selecting a new system was reliability and performance in order to handle up to 3,600 orders in a single day.”

The needs of the WHMC required them to replace an ineffective POS system that was unable to meet the high-volume transaction level while maintaining consistent and reliable operations throughout the week.  In addition, their requirements included powerful POS workstations, customer displays, cash drawers, power conditioners and integrated scales for selling products by weight.

“Intura installed the system during the last week of March and everything went extremely smooth,” continued Berryman.  “The system is performing well and the cashiers and management personnel are more than satisfied with the results.”

Later this year, Intura will also implement an interface with the Computrition DoD-mandated accounting system during the 2nd phase of the installation.  For more information on any Intura product or service visit the Intura website at
