At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, ParTech, Inc. self-service point-of-sale (POS) software and hardware served the thousands of customers who visited Molson Canadian Hockey House.
Vision/Co deployed 14 PAR EverServ™ 2000 POS hardware terminals running PAR EverServ POS PixelPoint software as self-service kiosks. Customers could use the touch screen terminals to buy tickets, which could be redeemed for wine, hard liquor or beer at serving stations, by swiping their Visa cards.
The self-service kiosks scored a hat trick displaying their:
Reliability: 125,000 Drink Orders Processed Over 17 Days with No System Failures
Easy-to-Use: Intuitive Interface with Fast Transactions Kept Lines Moving
Flexibility: System was Easy to Customize to Accommodate a Shift in Strategy
