Maitre’D by Posera, which offers restaurant-management software that includes customizable point-of-sale, back-office, corporate, and web-based reporting solutions with alert features for table service and quick-service restaurants, announced that it has become one of the first members of the HP Point-of-Sale (POS) Solution Ready Program, which makes it easier for retailers to purchase a point-of-sale system with confidence that it has been vendor-tested for smooth integration and ease of use.

Through the HP POS Solution Ready Program, Posera’s Maitre’D’s POS Software was validated on HP POS systems using a verification testing process that ensures the application will operate properly with HP POS systems. Verified applications are marked with HP’s Point-of-Sale Solution Ready insignia.

“At Maitre’D POS, we are dedicated to continually improving the means for which retailers can purchase and use trusted POS solutions that will help them do business better,” says Michel Cote, vice president and COO of Posera. “By gaining accreditation through HP’s POS Solution Ready Program, we are simplifying the process of building and deploying a full POS solution, so that our customers can easily create a solid transactional platform that can be up and running in a short amount of time.”

In addition, the program is designed to help select software providers such as Maitre’D gain worldwide exposure to HP’s broad network of retail customers.

“HP retail solutions offer customers of any size the opportunity to utilize the industry’s most secure, reliable and durable POS systems that can be easily tailored to manage multiple aspects of a retailer’s operations,” says Tate Davis, manager of POS Product Marketing for HP. “By creating the HP POS Solution Ready Program, HP is extending the capabilities of its POS platforms to provide software vendors the tools they need to create a trusted technology offering that can help retailers increase business efficiencies, while offering a means for improving what matters most—customer service.”
