Joint Solutions Streamline Food Service Operations for Bars and Restaurants
Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, recently announced that Lavu, an innovative mobile restaurant POS software provider, has certified Epson’s TM-U220-i OmniLink receipt printer - Multi-Station KDS controller solution to help customers boost efficiency by seamlessly integrating the KDS controller into their existing kitchen workflow. The solution is available from Lavu today.
Epson’s KDS provides Lavu customers with the ability to manage kitchen tickets, which are displayed on the KDS for easy visibility and management. The integration delivers a feature rich hardware and software solution, enabling streamlined back-of-house management and improved front- and back-of-house communications, order speed and accuracy, and ultimately, increased efficiency. Perfect for small, quick‑serve restaurants (QSRs), Epson’s KDS controller drives a customer's kitchen display and provides a printing solution to the workflow.
“We have been working closely with Epson since the pre-release of its KDS solution to ensure Lavu would be ready to offer this latest product offering,” said Steve Brown, director of sales at Lavu. “The combination of Epson’s flexible, easy-to-install and highly customizable KDS solutions with built-in printers allows us to run more efficient food service operations, leading to more satisfied customers.”
“Lavu is one of our trusted partners,” said Tom Kettell, director, commercial channel sales at Epson. “Our KDS kitchen printers bundled with Lavu’s innovative iPad POS, give restaurants a reliable solution for kitchen and front-of-house printing and ticket processing, leading to simplified restaurant management.”
