(RRT), the leader in providing the most advanced and effective restaurant industry Order Management solutions, powered by its patent-pending software and supported through its call center, online and mobile takeout ordering, and customer loyalty and catering platforms, announces the addition of Kevin Thomas as its new Director of Software Engineering.

Thomas has an extensive development, programming and management background. Prior to joining RRT, Thomas was the Director of Technology for Digital Air Strike (DAS), a leading price quoting, lead management, social media and digital marketing solution provider within the automotive technology industry. As part of the founding team, Thomas directed and managed the architecture and design of the company’s core quoting SaaS system, Response Logix, from initial inception through full realization, deployment and management. Through the extensive use of Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, the product is a featured case study by Microsoft on leaders in cloud computing. Additionally, his responsibilities included directing several teams of developers on various product related projects leading to a highly scalable solution, as well as the mentoring, training and code reviewing of all engineers.
Prior to DAS, Thomas served in a variety of technical and senior management positions with companies like Dealix, Legacy Partners, Envision Software, and AMS Rating. Most notably with Dealix, Thomas managed the ongoing software and application development of the company’s flagship platform which handles the brokering, scrubbing, and processing of tens of thousands of lead transactions daily. And with Legacy Partners, Thomas provided leadership and management to both the software development and data warehousing teams. The proprietary software was eventually sold to Microsoft for their internal management of properties. Both companies, under Thomas’ technical and development leadership and guidance, are highly garnered and nationally recognized organizations within their respected industries.
“I am thrilled to be joining the RRT team. RRT's vision to make takeout ordering and processing technology a more robust, efficient and profitable solution for restaurant chains addresses a major technical pain point for restaurant operators, in particular the IT professionals, within the restaurant industry,” Thomas said. "And while the RRT order management solution and supporting technology platforms are highly innovative and impressive, how we engage, develop and execute on functionality advancements, implementation and client integrations will serve as the subsequential key for incremental growth for the company.”
Thomas will work closely with RRT's CTO as well as the technology, operations and support teams focusing his attention and expertise on RRT’s software development projects in the continual effort of maintaining an already established high level of client satisfaction with RRT clients.

We are excited and pleased to have Kevin lead our technology and development teams and projects.
