EchoSat Inc., a leading provider of payments security and redundancy solutions, and Dominos, the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, announced a partnership to provide secure communications redundancy for vital electronic payments data and business systems to Dominos corporate and franchise stores. EchoSat will employ a wide range of wireless solutions to meet the geographical demands of the Dominos retail footprint across North America.
In the new era of online ordering and smart phone apps for quick-serve restaurants, store connections are critical for the retail operator and a single broadband connection can be unreliable. EchoSat will utilize multiple technologies to cover the full footprint of Dominos stores and provide critical failover for electronic payments and business systems to Dominos existing wide-area network. Adding this additional level of redundancy to the retail network will allow Domino's to continue to focus on their demonstrated success in digital channels, which drove 50 percent of U.S. sales at the end of 2014.
"EchoSat is pleased to partner with Domino's to provide network redundancy for their retail locations, as well as those owned by Domino's franchisees," says Mark Carl, CEO of EchoSat. He adds, "Emerging applications, such as online ordering and high-speed payments are driving the need for retailers to be connected 100 percent of the time. EchoSat will continue to develop and deliver solutions that meet the needs of these multi-site retailers and franchisees. Domino's is a recognized leader in technology innovation, and we're pleased to be part of it."
“Dominos is excited to make available EchoSat PaySafe cellular backup service in our Dominos stores as it will help ensure greater uptime and reliability for our franchisees and customers, especially during peak busy hours,” says Michael Davis vice president of global store technology for Dominos. “We’re expecting this program to be beneficial to our goal of fast and excellent customer service.”
