Shift4 Bellies Up to Bar

A relationship between processor Shift4 Payments and hospitality guru and star of "Bar Rescue," Jon Taffer, now extends training for end-user customers. As such, it reduces the price for Taffer Virtual Teaching, an online course with video modules, to $49 per month (from $99). It's now offered in the marketplace section of Shift4's Lighthouse Business Management System. (Above and beyond payments, of course, Shift4 addresses hardware and software for leading brands in POS: Harbortouch, Restaurant Manager, POSitouch, and Future POS.)

A library at Taffer Virtual Teaching has strategies on how to drive more revenue by obtaining new customers as well as increasing their spending and length of stay, emphasized Shift4 Payments. It also includes testing, and upon successful completion, possible differentiation in the employment market, via "Taffer Certification." (Introduced in August, the Lighthouse Business Management System also incorporates so-called "Smart POS" tools fashioned by Taffer.)

"Jon Taffer is much more than just a television personality. He is the leading expert in the food and beverage industry with a long resume of impressive accolades," stated Jared Isaacman, CEO of Shift4 Payments (Allentown, PA). "His management methodology, called 'Reaction Management,' has become the gold standard of the industry and he has successfully turned around hundreds of floundering bars and restaurants with his proven approach. This exclusive offering gives our customers access to Jon's invaluable expertise 24/7, 365 days per year."

To the Lighthouse (With 7shifts)

Another integration for Lightspeed POS (Montreal, Canada), in the form of workforce management platform for restaurants, 7shifts (Toronto, Canada). In its package, 7shifts offers scheduling, communication, time-clocking, and so-called "employee engagement" functionality. It has an end-user base of 250,000 restaurant professionals. As effectiveness, it cites accuracy of 95% in the forecast of shift requirements and 80% in the reduction of time spent scheduling.

"Proactive labor cost control and insights are quickly becoming the differentiating factor between restaurants that grow and those that stagnate," counseled Jordan Boesch, 7shifts CEO. "We are thrilled to partner with the forward-thinking team at Lightspeed to provide restaurateurs with simple, intuitive solutions to help solve staffing and labor management issues." A strong roster of brands of POS are served by 7shifts, ranging from tablet upstarts (e.g., Cake, Toast, Rezku) to terminal stalwarts (e.g., Squirrel, NCR/Aloha, Oracle/Micros).

"Our robust partner ecosystem contributes to our customers' success, so we continually look to work with innovative partners that provide extended value and help our customers flourish," mused Peter Dougherty, Director of Partnerships at Lightspeed. "7shifts is yet another great addition to the Lightspeed Partner Network, allowing us to offer our restaurant customers stellar scheduling and labor management tools." Founded in 2005, Lightspeed has grown to over 650 employees. It plans its IPO, expecting $200 million to $1 billion, in 2019.

The Florida Project

A pathway to payments runs through Net Element (Miami, FL) and PAX Technology (Jacksonville, FL). It combines new Netevia Light POS software by Net Element with the A920 and A80 "smart" payment terminals by PAX. "Our robust application and PAX's powerful hardware will enable business owners to process payments with greater ease and more flexibility," declared Vlad Sadovskiy, President of Integrated Payments for Net Element.

As delivery, the two partners note that current end-users of the A920 and A80 by PAX may download Netevia Light POS. In addition, another subsidiary of Net Element, named Unified Payments, will distribute the bundle. (As readers may know, Net Element also supplies its cloud-based software for restaurants and retail in the SMB, dubbed Aptito.)

As ancillary benefits of Netevia Light POS, in addition to its payment functionality, Net Element lists easy set-up, real-time reporting, inventory management, tip adjustment, customer loyalty, and on-screen signature capture.

Honeywell Gets the Biz

Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions (Fort Mill, SC) has tied its voice-directed warehouse system, Vocollect, to SAP Business One. A popular system for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), SAP Business One addresses warehouse operations, logistics, and order fulfillment. A bundled solution will be offered with Honeywell's Guided Work Solutions, part of Vocollect, and SAP Business One. It was previewed at the recent SAP Biz.ONE Conference in Orlando, FL.

Integration with SAP enables workers to more easily perform specific warehousing tasks, such as picking, receiving, put-away, packing, and shipping inventory. As example, when work orders arrive via SAP Business One, Honeywell's Guided Work Solutions translates that order into a set of optimized interactive voice commands so work carries on with hands and eyes free to concentrate on the workflow, not the screen. It runs on devices, including mobile computers by Honeywell, with the Android O/S.

"For more than 20 years, distribution centers globally have achieved significant productivity and accuracy gains by empowering their workers with voice solutions from Honeywell Vocollect," elaborated Bill Birnie, GM of Voice Solutions for Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. "With our new Guided Work Solutions, we can help small- and medium-sized enterprises smoothly and quickly deploy the same voice-directed technology used by some of the world's largest and most complex fulfillment operations." At present, one million workers use Honeywell Vocollect in distribution centers (DC's) worldwide.

Honeywell and SAP Help ERP for the SMB

[Editor's Note: In late November, Honeywell announced it will relocate its global corporate headquarters from Morris Plains, NJ, to Charlotte, NC. Also, headquarters of its Safety and Productivity Solutions will relocate from Fort Mill, SC, to Charlotte, NC. A cited factor: the recently passed North Carolina Job Development Investment Grant.]


How Was Your Meal?

A partnership between Omnivore (Hayward, CA) and Yumpingo (New York, NY) seeks to provide deeper intelligence for the full-service restaurant segment. It draws guest feedback from Yumpingo into the third-party platform of Application Programming Interfaces (API), and thereby the POS, via Omnivore. A thin handheld computer in leather casing, replacing the credit card reader, is offered by Yumpingo. All data may be used to optimize menu development and streamline service, according to the two parties.

"Gone are the days of managing restaurant operations by 'gut feel.' The winners will be those who are able to unify and synthesize data gathered by today's advanced technology," maintained Gary Goodman, Founder and CEO of Yumpingo. "We now have the ability to offer near-immediate guest feedback on exact menu items and servers. Making Yumpingo available to thousands of restaurant locations through Omnivore's API enables the opportunity for monumental change in how operators manage staff training and compensation, marketing, and menu development through specific and timely guest feedback."

"We're very fortunate to have become the go-to API for POS systems in the restaurant space. Many of the leading restaurant technology companies in the areas of delivery, loyalty, online ordering, payment, and more, are finding rapid success using our platform," exclaimed Mike Wior, Co-Founder and CEO of Omnivore. "Yumpingo has been extremely successful internationally with its guest review technology, and we are excited to remain strong partners as the technology makes its debut in the U.S." (FYI: In October, Yumpingo launched for TGI Friday's.)

Aptos Clothes Michael Kors

Aptos (Atlanta, GA), one of the leading apparel ISVs, will install its "next-generation" Aptos ONE platform for Michael Kors. A pilot program will initially focus on mobility, and move on to so-called "microservices-based" retail across in-store and online touchpoints. A major name in upscale fashion, including ready-to-wear, jewelry, footwear, and fragrance, Michael Kors has 350 stores in 43 U.S. States. Also, it has digital flagships across North America, Europe, and Asia.

"While the initial pilot deployment is focused on making the sale anytime and anywhere with a mobile device, ultimately we will be looking at how the Aptos ONE platform can create a foundation to innovate faster, unify and streamline core commerce and customer engagement capabilities, and differentiate the shopping experience at Michael Kors," reported Dave Kardesh, CIO at Michael Kors."We were impressed at how the Aptos ONE platform sits alongside and augments our current Aptos POS to create an extensive, flexible, and scalable technology ecosystem with its cloud-native, Application Programming Interface (API)-driven approach to deploying enterprise-class software." (At present, more than 1,000 retail brands employ Aptos, which spun off Epicor Software Corporation in 2015.)

According to Noel Goggin, Aptos CEO, the introduction of Aptos ONE reflects the belief that, in today's retail environment, the retailers that will succeed are those that can innovate at the pace of consumers' evolving shopping and social patterns. "With Aptos ONE's flexible deployment models, shared microservices, dynamic application updates, and real-time platform management tools, retailers will finally be able to keep up with consumers," he expounded. In order to pursue the need for "living, dynamic" software, which "spans technology stacks," Aptos established its R&D Division, Aptos Labs, in 2017.

Entering the Gift Shop

Mi9 Retail (Miami, FL) will deploy its store management platform for the largest provider of hospital gift shops in the U.S. Established in 1981, Lori's Gifts has approximately 400 locations in 39 States.

As partners, it includes Epson America (Long Beach, CA), HP (Palo Alto, CA), Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions (Durham, NC), and Zebra Technologies (Lincolnshire, IL).

"We looked at numerous vendors and Mi9 Retail was the only one that offered a wide range of features, including a powerful built-in allocation engine, an inventory daybook, and more, and that could meet our budget and aggressive timeline," relayed Mike Kriesman, CIO of Lori's Gifts. "Mi9 Retail showed a strong willingness to partner with us and understood the complex and unique retail environment into which our brand is evolving. Their scalable solutions offer the flexibility needed to fit our needs today, and well into the future."

In October, Mi9 Retail also acquired one of the largest software and digital media companies for grocery and consumer packaged goods: MyWebGrocer (Colchester, VT). It strengthens Mi9 Retail's offering in such verticals with new e-commerce, order management, and click-and-collect functionality. It also brings investment from middle-market private-equity firm, HGGC (Palo Alto, CA). "Mi9 has a proven track record of successfully integrating best-of-breed retail technology companies, so adding MWG is a natural step for the company," suggested Rich Lawson, CEO and Co-Founder of HGGC.
