SEATTLE, WA, March 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Pizza restaurants can have hundreds or thousands of fans on their social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter - what if they could turn those social pages building brand into pages that can directly boost sales? Now they can.
Leading point-of-sale solution provider Andromeda POS' newest capabilities help restaurant owners convert their websites and social platforms from brand-builders into buying pages. Customers can now order online, through their smartphones or even through the Facebook social network.
"We made online and mobile marketing and social engagement really easy for the store staff, directly from the point of sale system by integrating our partner eThor's social media marketing capabilities," says Andromeda POS VP Americas Dave Hick.
New capabilities include:
• Easily post menus and deals on your website and social platforms from Andromeda's integrated marketing platform
• Integrate online ordering with Facebook, Twitter, e-mail marketing and text messaging campaigns and receive online orders directly in your POS system
• Analytics and reporting to track and analyze results of promotional offers
Restaurant owners have been looking for new ways to market and engage with their customers. Up until now, that required an experienced marketing specialist and all kind of marketing tools.
"Restaurants can now easily and quickly promote products and deals in store, online and on social media," Hick says. "Hungry customers can enjoy these deals in the store or order from the store website, phone or Facebook. Payment and order entry is all integrated and we can tell customers when their pizza will be ready at the time of ordering. Customers can also track their order from the oven to their door with updates via Twitter or SMS."
"We're excited about being able to deliver this kind of functionality that is definitely not standard for any POS out there," Hick adds. "One of our customers told us recently, online ordering is now a must-have capability - and it's ultimately the reason he decided to go with Andromeda, because the competition just couldn't provide it without making him the test guinea pig. eThor has done so many of these integrations that we know our customers will be able to bake this capability right into their regular business processes, without any disruption to operations. Customers can order however they want and that means extra profits."
We look forward to welcoming visitors for a demo at our booth #1735 at the Pizza Expo in Las Vegas March 19-21. "Every day at the Pizza Expo, we'll draw for a free license of Andromeda POS -- any company that gets a quote will be entered!" Hick says.
