NEXTEP Launches New Foodservice Technology Platform
NEXTEP Systems, a Troy, Mich.-based provider of customer self order technology, today has launched its Foundation5 foodservice technology platform to provide foodservice operators with a single vendor solution for operating high volume foodservice concepts.
Foundation5 was developed to be scalable and secure, and approved by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) for deployment. Multiple payment options are supported, including cash, credit, gift cards, and soon mobile payment options. NEXTEP's product suite can be managed from anywhere, using its cloud-based command center , providing a single touch point for managing menu items, promotions, inventory, employees, and reporting
According to NEXTEP, foodservice operations historically only required cash registers or POS systems. Each year, however, more ordering is done "beyond the counter," for example ordering a pizza from a Website or from a touch screen kiosk. Yet, multiple vendors were needed to supply the various technologies, requiring restaurateurs to act as systems integrators, with inevitable finger pointing when systems failed to properly function. Foundation5 is meant to address this issue by bringing everything under the umbrella of one vendor.
