pcAmerica Unveils Tableside Ordering and Payment for Restaurant Pro Express™

New Mobile Point of Sale Solution Operates on Affordable iPod Touch® and iPhone® Devices

Pearl River, NY – July 21, 2011 – pcAmerica, a leading developer of retail, restaurant and fuel point of sale software, has added a new mobile point of sale solution, Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile, to its product lineup. Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile offers restaurant owners the primary functionalities of a stationary point of sale terminal on an Apple® iPod touch® or iPhone®.

The stylish, intuitive interface is easy to learn and use. Servers have the ability to take orders tableside, split checks and securely process credit card payments through an attached encrypted credit card reader. Wait staff may print receipts with Epson’s Mobilink™ wireless mobile printer, which offers the fastest thermal receipt printing in its class and an industry-leading battery life of up to 20 hours. Alternatively, wait staff can offer diners a paperless receipt option, where receipts are sent to the customer via e-mail. The mobile ordering system also supports various taxation rules, discounts and happy hour pricing.

Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile works in conjunction with traditional pcAmerica POS terminals and synchronizes guest checks and menus in real time, so servers can place orders tableside but also view their open tabs and make changes at the POS station.

“Mobile POS is gaining in popularity because it offers the functionality of a traditional point of sale package in an affordable unit that fits into your pocket,” said David Gosman, CEO of pcAmerica. “The appeal of this package is undeniable: less waiting means a higher table turnover, accurate orders every time and the ability to securely pay for a meal without the credit card ever leaving the table. We anticipate that Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile will become one of our most popular POS solutions as our clients decide to make the switch to this cutting edge technology.”

pcAmerica will debut Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile at booth #813 at the upcoming RSPA RetailNOW Convention on July 26-29 in Orlando, Florida. The convention is an annual conference held for POS resellers and ISV’s to demonstrate new business trends, showcase upcoming technologies, and share best business practices.

Although mobile POS is already commonplace in other parts of the world, restaurant owners in the US are starting to take an interest. The benefits are clear; tableside ordering and payment helps reduce wait times and more accurate ordering cuts the amount of time and resources correcting mistakes due to human error. The time saved lets servers spend a few additional minutes at each table, giving customers a higher level of service and allowing the wait staff the chance to up-sell desserts, drinks and sides.

Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile will be available by the end of the summer. It will also be available for Google Android devices in future releases.
