Par Tech's Boundless Hospitality Initiative Aims to Optimize Restaurant Ops from the Inside Out

PAR Tech, Inc., a provider of software, hardware and service solutions to restaurants, hotels, spas and retail industries, has launched the company's Boundless Hospitality initiative. The initiative, which was unveiled at the FSTEC Conference in Long Beach, California, this week, includes new solution offerings and an integrated partner program focused on enhancing restaurant technology's ability to help operators solve key new industry challenges and support sweeping changes in consumer behavior.

As part of its Boundless Hospitality initiative, PAR is introducing its PAR EverServ family of integrated yet extensible point of sale (POS) solutions, including PAR's soon-to-be-available next-generation POS software suite, EverServ POS, for quick service restaurants (QSR), and the PAR EverServ Series 2000 POS terminal. The PAR EverServ POS software suite includes the next generation of enterprise POS software with a centralized, real-time database. As an enterprise platform, EverServ QSR software gives operators a complete, real-time view of their entire business, and a variety of opportunities to enhance operations, from up-to-the-minute enterprise-wide reporting, to better-informed trend-spotting and business calibration, and reduced staff training and management. The EverServ Series 2000 terminal extends the company's hardware family to include a POS terminal at a lower price point. It features an innovative design that operates at low noise and with low power consumption and minimal maintenance, and its small footprint is ideal for locations where space is at a premium.

The new EverServ POS software products feature a flexible, open, service-oriented architecture, making it easy for PAR to add functionality such as online ordering, or integrate next-generation technologies ranging from new payment options to mobile applications and consumer social-networking functionality. To unleash the full power of these development opportunities, PAR has also launched the EverServ Ecosystem partner initiative and is working closely with key technology alliance partners, including anchor members Microsoft, Epson, QSR Automations, VeriFone and APG Cash Drawer, to add a wide variety of integrated and tested enhancements to its core EverServ offering. These enhancements will improve customer support, reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and streamline the cost of doing business, while giving restaurant operators new capabilities in support of PAR's Boundless Hospitality vision.
