PAR Tech Inc., a leading global provider of point of sale solutions to the restaurant industry, announced the complete integration of PAR’s Brink POS with HotSchedules, a leading provider of mobile technology for the restaurant and hospitality industries. This partnership enables Brink POS customers to fully integrate with the HotSchedules “Internet of Things” (IoT) platform, which includes three applications: HotSchedules labor management, Reveal, and Inventory.
PAR’s Brink POS is a cloud-based restaurant software solution provided as a monthly, SaaS offering, with native online ordering, customizable loyalty programs, and multiunit management. The software can be deployed on multiple types of hardware including PAR EverServ Hardware terminals and/or PAR EverServ Tablets.
This integration will deliver real-time sales, time cards, and workforce information to the HotSchedules IoT Platform, which aggregates data from dozens of sources and devices. The platform makes it easy for people and applications to access, analyze and use the full breadth of data available to restaurants. Through a single integration with the IoT Platform, Brink POS users can eliminate the need to build multiple point-to-point integrations between the POS and other applications and thereby reduce IT costs. Any and all applications, including HotSchedules labor management solution, Reveal, and Inventory, can access and update point-of-sale data on demand via the HotSchedules IoT Platform.
“We seek to integrate with the most innovative companies in the hospitality technology space, and PAR is at the cutting edge of POS technology,” says Keith Dunphy, vice president of channel sales at HotSchedules. “Their outstanding track record and global presence attest to admiration and trust they have earned throughout the hospitality industry. We’re proud to welcome them to our partner ecosystem.”
“The HotSchedules IoT Platform elevates our position to provide customers with Internet of things solutions for real-time, data-driven operations,” says Karen E. Sammon, president and CEO at PAR Technology Corporation. “Restaurants can take immediate action to boost profitability and eliminate waste by tapping into the near real-time POS data from anywhere with Internet access. We view this partnership as a way to combine complementary strengths and thereby provide greater value to our shared customers.”
