If customers are looking for a cost-effective tablet that fits in the palm of the hand or in an apron pocket, we can offer it. They can select the Android tablet that works for them.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 19, 2011
Squirrel Systems today announced the debut of Squirrel Professional POS for Android at the 2011 National Restaurant Association Show taking place from May 21-24 in Chicago. The ability to run Squirrel Professional on an Android tablet is the latest addition to the Squirrel Mobility suite of solutions, which also includes point of sale software for Windows tablets and other mobile devices like the Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
Restaurants, bars, and hotels can efficiently manage their food and beverage operations by running Squirrel Professional POS software on traditional fixed touchscreen terminals as well as mobile tablets and handhelds. The ability to mix and match a growing number of available devices and platforms all on the same system gives Squirrel Professional users an unprecedented level of flexibility.
Now, with the introduction of Squirrel Professional for Android, customers have even more choice. Android is an open source mobile platform from Google that can be installed by any hardware manufacturer, providing hospitality operators a wide range of tablets from which to choose.
“Squirrel understands that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to providing point of sale solutions for each of our customers,” said Mike Devine, Vice President, Marketing and Channel Sales at Squirrel Systems. “If customers are looking for a cost-effective tablet that fits in the palm of the hand or in an apron pocket, we can offer it. They can select the Android tablet that works for them, whether it has a 5-inch, 7-inch, or 10-inch screen.”
Because the same innovative and easy-to-use software runs on fixed terminals and Android tablets, customers using both types of hardware have a seamless experience when entering orders, managing promotions, updating menu items and prices, or sending staff alerts. Therefore, implementing Squirrel Professional with an Android tablet requires little to no training so users can spend less time thinking about technology and have more time to focus on providing an exceptional guest experience.
Demonstrating the versatility of Squirrel’s point of sale software, Squirrel Professional can be seen on a variety of mobile devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab (an Android tablet), as well as the Apple iPad, in booth #5660 at the 2011 NRA Show starting May 21st, 2011.
