LONG BEACH, Calif., April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, today announced that Food Online Ordering Systems, a provider of online ordering solutions for restaurants, has selected Epson's Omnilink® TM-T88V-i and OmniLink TM-T20II-i intelligent printers for their unique ePOS™ Print and Server Direct Print technologies to better facilitate the restaurant online ordering process and improve sales. The solution is available from Food Online Ordering Systems today.
According to Hospitality Technology's 2014 Restaurant Technology Study, nearly one in four restaurants offer online ordering and their next horizon will be to take online ordering to a mobile platform via apps and websites.
"As online food ordering has been making the move to mobile, Food Online Ordering Systems recognized the need for a more efficient and convenient mobile online ordering solution," said Tom Kettell, director, commercial channel sales at Epson. "They have the technology and skill to take the online restaurant ordering experience to that next level. And together, we can create a more appealing online food ordering experience for customers while simultaneously enabling restaurants to maximize their business potential."
"It's all about convenience for the customer and Epson provides the ideal addition to our restaurant online ordering solution," said Todd Burge, CIO at Food Online Ordering Systems. "Epson's TM-i intelligent printer series' ability to communicate directly with remote devices without the need for a server or PC, was a key factor in the selection. Restaurant customers will be able to place an online order with any computer, iOS-, Android mobile, or Windows device. This way, everyone in the restaurant can make the most out of their time serving customers rather than attending to phones, computers emails and faxes. They simply fill the order when it prints."
"Food Online Ordering Systems has increased our food orders by more than 10%," said Linda Johnston of Abo's Pizza in Longmont, Colorado. "We are doing about $4,000 per month in online sales now. On our counter we have an old cash register and our Epson printer. It's like magic, we added a button to our website and the online order just prints out!"
