HURST, TX - Ibertech, Inc., has just released Aloha QuickService 4.0, the premier point-of-sale solution for fast food environments. The 100 percent WindowsTM -based touchscreen software has received many enhancements since its initial release in early 1997 said Brian Cook, chief technical officer of Ibertech.
"This is a much more mature product," said Cook. "It reflects our growth experience in this market. Numerous features that we have had in Aloha TableService, we now have added to Aloha QuickService."
The biggest enhancement to Aloha QuickService 4.0 is its support of Microsoft SQL Server; Cook said. "Microsoft SQL Server provides customers with increased flexibility while providing them with the opportunity to pick and choose which database they want, thanks to Aloha's live data feed functionality."
Other important additions available in 4.0 are its support for 24-hour operations, labor scheduling and delivery/frequent diner capabilities, as well as specialized options developed specifically for fast food chicken eateries.
Ibertech's development team created Aloha QuickService 4.0 to address several concerns of its national reseller channel, as well as those of its current Aloha installed base and future customers, who want to meet the needs of choosier fast food patrons. Cook said one idea was central to all developers throughout the process.
"There are extremely vast differences among all our customers' needs," Cook said. "The system has to be developed for maximum flexibility in order to meet their business objectives."
The biggest customer benefits that Aloha QuickService 4.0 provides come in several areas: Aloha's live data feed capability, support for 24-hour operations, labor scheduling, and delivery/frequent buyer enhancements. Aloha's live data feed capabilities provide customers with real-time sales data in order to generate more accurate information and reports. Aloha's support of 24-hour operations lets the POS solution venture into new markets and provide true sales figures to places where end-of-day processes occur during business hours. One such example of a 24-hour operation is the Greyhound bus terminal in downtown Dallas, in which the bus line had its first Aloha QuickService installation. The labor scheduling features help reduce labor costs and project advance scheduling and labor needs, while the delivery/frequent buyer enhancements let restaurant operators target and market more effectively to both return customers and new business prospects.
Some recent Aloha QuickService installations include Greyhound bus terminals, Blimpie sandwich shops, and, recently announced, Madison Square Garden.
