These packages are aimed at restaurant owners who, when they do shop online for business equipment, tend to stick with trusted brands and outlets like Staples
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
Lavu Inc., makers of the original full-featured iPad POS for restaurants announced today their partnership with Staples Inc. The Lavu restaurant point of sale is now available for purchase on Staples.com as an easy to install single-terminal hardware bundle. Each restaurant system ships with cash drawers, printers, card swipers, and iPad enclosures, as well as instructions for downloads of the Lavu POS software for iPad.
The bundles are used as POS terminals for food and beverage ordering and checkout. Included with each Lavu software license is a full business management suite to manage menus, inventory, labor scheduling, and up-to-the-minute sales reports. Equipped with cloud-based technologies, Lavu provides scheduling and real-time reports which are available to management anywhere, anytime. There is no upfront fee for the Lavu 88 software recommended for these bundles.
“These packages are aimed at restaurant owners who, when they do shop online for business equipment, tend to stick with trusted brands and outlets like Staples,” said Josh Bennett, VP of Business Development with Lavu Inc. “The plan is to get Lavu in front of business owners who may not have yet considered the iPad as a viable point of sale and management software solution for their business.”
What differentiates Lavu from comparable systems on the Staples site is their focus on restaurant-centric solutions and the sheer volume of features. Rather than including the cheapest hardware options, Lavu has opted for best value by including the most reliable, highest quality hardware for their bundles. Included are Epson’s new smart Omnilink-i printer for receipt and kitchen printing and industry standard APG cash drawers. The Simplicity iPad enclosure by Vault combines sleek style with security, and ID Tech credit card swipers are durable while providing quick processing necessary for the fast-paced food and beverage industry.
“Lavu has been one of our most trusted partners,” said Tom Kettell, senior manager of North American Sales for Epson's Business Systems Division. “Our smart OmniLink-i and tablet POS-friendly printers for receipt and kitchen printing bundled with Lavu’s innovative iPad POS give restaurants a reliable solution ensuring they have the right hardware for the best results in mobile and online ordering.”
“The service and support for new Lavu customers who purchase packages through Staples.com will be just as thorough and specific to their unique requirements as ever,” reports Ben Harrison, VP of Brand/Marketing at Lavu Inc. “All accounts will be assigned a Certified Lavu Specialist to offer consultation, installation services, and support packages -- just like the renowned 24/7 support provided to customers who find us through our own websites.”
Lavu iPad POS is a full-featured point of sale solution that is a modern alternative to traditional Legacy POS systems. Lavu works with modern technology such as WiFi connectivity and cloud computing. The intuitive interface is simple and easy to learn, yet offers advanced features that are essential for foodservice operations. Free trials of Lavu point of sale software are available on the Apple App Store and from lavu.com.
