Papa Gino's Inc. has converted 113 D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches restaurant locations to the SpeedLine point of sale software, wrapping up the first phase of the company's planned rollout to its Papa Gino's Pizzeria and D'Angelo restaurants.
Papa Gino's selected SpeedLine POS to replace the existing point of sale software in a combined 320 locations.
"The open architecture of the SpeedLine POS software is crucial to our technology strategy," said Papa Gino's CIO Paul Valle. "Our directive was to design a highly efficient, seamlessly connected restaurant enterprise."
At the company's headquarters, Papa Gino's installed SpeedLink Enterprise to manage and connect the restaurant POS systems with the company's existing information systems.
"With SpeedLink, we can also manage and lock down menus, settings, and security at all locations," Valle said.
To ensure that operating and reporting processes would continue with minimal interruption throughout the POS transition, Papa Gino's worked with SpeedLine to integrate the POS systems with head office systems for business intelligence and reporting, automated purchasing and receiving, and HRIS. They also implemented and tested integrations with the company's web ordering and loyalty solutions.
Through a partnership with NCR, Papa Gino's and SpeedLine have replaced POS software and upgraded hardware in 10 D'Angelo locations per week since fall 2011. They expect to complete the rollout at the last Papa Gino's locations early this summer.
"The planning and custom integration for this rollout has been a step beyond any new chain implementation in our experience," said John de Wolde, SpeedLine president. "We are honored to be a strategic partner in Papa Gino's technology plans, and look forward to continuing to work with them to deliver new efficiencies for both restaurant concepts."
