Integration provides robust platform for data, insights, and inventory management to improve efficiency in complex segment
SYRACUSE, NY (October 2, 2018) – BeerBoard, the leader in real-time data, insights and consumer engagement for the hospitality industry, announced today it has partnered with SpeedLine, the leading provider of innovative solutions for pizza point of sale. The partnership will deliver advanced capabilities for pizzeria point of sale systems and provide improved efficiency in the complex segment.
SpeedLine specializes in pizza point of sale — and the particular needs of pizzerias for managing inventory. Inventory in a pizzeria is inherently more complicated than in most other restaurant concepts because the menu is dynamic.
“With create-your-own pizzas and half-and-half portions, there’s no such thing as a standard recipe for every menu item,” notes SpeedLine Marketing Manager Jennifer Wiebe, “so the point of sale system has to calculate inventory on the fly. Add a bar, and you have another layer of complexity for inventory management in the pizzeria.”
BeerBoard and its SmartBar platform generate real-time insights, trend-driven analytics and integrated inventory for bars and restaurants. SmartBar is a patented technology which generates real-time data and insights for operators and brewers. Retailers benefit from data on pour volumes and inventory management for its draft beer category. On average, the yield from a keg of beer is 78 percent. Using BeerBoard’s data-driven technology, clients yield an average of 95 percent and sell five more pints from each keg.
“We are excited to partner with SpeedLine and together deliver a best-in-class POS solution to restauranteurs in this space,” said Josh Solomon, VP National Accounts for BeerBoard. “SpeedLine is already noted for its innovative POS solutions and, now, integrated with our industry-leading SmartBar platform, we can help improve efficiency and revenues for operators.”
“Many of our full-service clients offer a selection of draft beers.” Wiebe adds. “This new integration with BeerBoard opens the doors for our clients to have better insights into their bars’ performance.”
