Feb. 17, 2009, Abbotsford, B.C. – Speed of service, flexibility, and
security drive the SpeedLine POS 6.0 release.
“With the new SpeedLine
POS, restaurant operators can design their own ticket and dispatch screens to
improve speed and quality of service as orders flow through the restaurant,”
says Terry Haan, SpeedLine vice president of development.
With 45 custom options,
including icons to highlight crucial details, operators can tailor cash, bar,
expeditor, and dispatch stations to fit their unique operations. For example,
restaurant operators can flag web orders for a heads-up when the phones are
quiet but the kitchen is about to get busy. And they can highlight deliveries
to restricted zones for each order to anticipate safety concerns, and tally
side items to prevent mistakes.
To speed up ticket
recall, a new, user-friendly search tool lets staff pull up a customer’s order
by name or phone number, by the type of credit card used, or even by the type
of pizza they ordered.
SpeedLine 6.0 also delivers vital security
enhancements to help owners and managers control access to sensitive
information and track illicit activities. Most notably, the full SpeedLine POS product line,
including peripheral applications, has been audited and validated to meet Visa
PABP and Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards.
New birthday and barcode
tracking options round out the new release. With SpeedLine 6.0,
operators who run customer marketing programs can more easily track birthdays.
The new release also
supports barcode scanning for accurate coupon tracking, and instant barcode
ticket recall improves speed of service in high-volume buffet concepts.
“With 288 new features
and enhancements,” Haan concludes, “SpeedLine 6.0 is geared to equip SpeedLine users for
