Squirrel’s feature-rich software is built on a robust Microsoft SQL technology platform that allows us to use our existing terminals and printers...our original POS hardware investment has been protected.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
Squirrel Systems today announced that Boyne Resorts, the largest family-owned resort network in North America, has selected Squirrel Professional POS software for its food and beverage operations at four Michigan and Montana resorts, namely Boyne Highlands Resort, Boyne Mountain Resort, The Inn at Bay Harbor - A Renaissance Golf Resort, and Big Sky Resort.
In addition to meeting all of the requested functional requirements, Squirrel Professional proved to be a cost-effective point of sale solution. Ryan D. Kneeshaw, Business Technology Analyst at Boyne Resorts, elaborated, "Squirrel’s feature-rich software is built on a robust Microsoft SQL technology platform that allows us to use our existing terminals and printers. As a result, our original POS hardware investment has been protected."
Demonstrating the software’s scalability and flexibility, Squirrel Professional will be installed in 36 outlets representing a variety of concepts, from fine and casual dining restaurants to bars and quick service cafes. Outlets within each resort will be networked, allowing consolidated sales reports to be easily generated from the Squirrel Professional POS data.
Strong mobile support was another consideration for selecting Squirrel Systems. With Squirrel Mobility, Boyne Resorts will have the ability to seamlessly operate Squirrel Professional software on devices such as the Apple iPad and iPhone. Mr. Kneeshaw said, "Squirrel Mobility looks like a great mobile POS solution for providing further revenue opportunities at poolside and from our golf course beverage carts."
According to Mike Devine, Vice President of Marketing and Channel Sales at Squirrel Systems, "Our proven technology and talented implementations and support team will help Boyne Resorts make an easy transition from their current POS software to Squirrel Professional." Mr. Devine continued, "We’ve been a point of sale pioneer since 1984 with headquarters located in close proximity to one of the world’s best ski resorts, where we have many satisfied Squirrel customers. This combined experience in food and beverage and resort operations will ensure the successful implementation and support of Squirrel’s hospitality management solutions at Boyne’s various properties."
