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.''
