New Hartford, N.Y. – June 21, 2016 — ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR), announced today that The Louis Fitzgerald Group has selected PAR PixelPoint® POS software platform to streamline efficiency and optimize the guest experience at their various outlets.
The Louis Fitzgerald Group, the largest pub group in Ireland, operates some of the best-known bars, restaurants, and hotels across Ireland. CBE, a reseller of PAR POS software and partner of The Louis Fitzgerald Group facilitated the process to find a POS solution that would create better employee and guest experiences. The goal was to develop a streamlined POS system that included inventory management to ultimately better serve employees and customers, with focus on speed of service.
The Louis Fitzgerald Group had decided to do a complete overhaul of its IT infrastructure to better support sustainability, scalability and enhance their operations. As a result, an electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) company was sought that held capabilities in installing comprehensive systems, training staff on functionality, while providing quality service and timely support.
“We carried out a thorough work-study on the requirements of The Louis Fitzgerald Group and concluded that the PAR PixelPoint® POS software was the best fit for their needs,” said Michael Gaughan, CBE Area Sales Manager in Dublin.
The flexible and customizable PixelPoint® software from PAR allows for easy adaptability to a variety of restaurant business models. This solution now enables The Louis Fitzgerald Group to consolidate data from multiple sites and provides access to near real-time metrics. Through help from CBE and PAR, this solution will allow The Louis Fitzgerald Group to make informed, proactive business decisions to drive revenues across their organization.
Eddie Fitzgerald stated, “We’re incredibly happy to have partnered with PAR and CBE. Tills have been networked to the Head Office for seven or eight years now, but the level of expertise these partners have brought has enabled us to streamline that function.”
“Helping our customers better serve their customers and optimizing those experiences reside at the foundation of PAR software solutions. PAR PixelPoint® is designed to be intuitive, seamlessly deployed, easy to use, allowing fast-growing groups like The Fitzgerald Group to streamline business operations to support their growth,” said Karen Sammon, President and CEO of PAR Technology Corporation.
CBE has deployed PAR PixelPoint® POS software at three Fitzgerald Group locations, with the remaining sites to be implemented in the coming months. The Louis Fitzgerald Group looks to continue its success with focus on employees and customers as they develop other aspects of the business with the help of PAR and CBE.
