Radiant Systems, Inc. Announces Agreement with Pizza Hut Franchisees for RapidFire POS Installation

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 22, 1998--Radiant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: RADS - news), a leading provider of integrated technology solutions to retailers worldwide, announced that after successful pilot testing, Chisholm Enterprises, Inc., Rage Inc., and Restaurant Management Co., have agreed to aggressively pursue rollout plans of the RapidFire point-of-sale system in 130 of their Pizza Hut stores.

This rollout is scheduled to begin September 26 with 88 locations expected to be installed in the next twelve months.

The RapidFire point-of-sale system, a leading choice for pizza and delivery operators, uses touch-screen technology to eliminate inaccurate handwritten tickets, reduce theft and improve cash control. The delivery dispatch system provides timely and accurate deliveries. RapidFire's database capabilities help to personalize customer service both in the store and on the phone and provide for innovative targeted marketing capabilities. End-of-day reports provide owners and managers tighter control over the day-to-day functions in their restaurant.

Doug O'Connor, CFO, Chisholm Enterprises, Inc., Wichita, Kan. comments, ``There are two reasons we like RapidFire; ease of use from a user perspective and it's proven in the pizza industry. The biggest benefit is that it works. We use the RapidFire Preferred Customer Program with the kiosk and get a good customer response from that. RapidFire's marketing function is great - if you utilize it, it's the difference between a good store and a great store.''

O'Connor adds, ``We changed from the current system to RapidFire, and have found that it is much easier to use and quicker. We were also impressed with the installation, training, and technical support capabilities of the organization.''

Brian White, Regional Sales Manager of Radiant Systems, remarks, ``Pizza Hut's franchisee's selection of our RapidFire application is of major significance to Radiant Systems, as it further validates the recent merger of RapidFire Systems, Inc. with Radiant Systems, Inc. It truly offers an end-to-end solution in our marketplace. We look forward to a long and continuing partnership with these operators, and we are committed to helping them apply advanced technology solutions that will drive their business objectives.''
