Order-Matic, Popstar Improve Digital Menuboard

Order-Matic, a pioneer in the quick-serve restaurant industry for more than 55 years, and Popstar Networks, a digital media software and services company, announced a reseller and joint marketing agreement for Popstar Networks’ advanced digital signage solutions. Through this agreement, Order-Matic will market and resell Popstar Networks’ complete digital signage offering, including the company’s digital menuboards for multi-location convenience stores, quick-serve, and fast-casual restaurants.

With thousands of long-standing customer relationships across the U.S., Order-Matic and its affiliated divisions have provided order confirmation, point-of-sale, graphics, and signage systems to the restaurant industry for more than 55 years. Through this partnership, Order-Matic is able to meet growing demand for a variety of digital signage needs, and extend related digital services to new and existing clients.

"We feel it is a natural progression for our customers as we settle into an age of ever changing food costs and the desire for convenience," says Megan Sanford, director of marketing, Order-Matic Electronics Corporation.

Designed to specifically meet the needs of today’s quick-serve and fast-casual restaurants, Popstar Networks’ digital menuboard offering is constructed to allow easy content distribution, remote location management, flexibility in updating and changing pricing, caloric/nutritional, and other data elements. The system also provides robust scheduling and day-parting, and full support of multi-brand management, all through a single, common interface.

Additionally, the platform is ideal for developing interactive, self-service ordering kiosks and can be integrated directly with existing point-of-sale systems and other third-party applications, providing a comprehensive solution to the client.
