The 2014 PGA Memorial Tournament hosted by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus delivered a couple of significant firsts. For the first time, Japanese golfer Hideki Matsuyama won the tournament, and APG Cash Drawer debuted its Stratis Integration System as part of a mobile POS solution used at concession and food stations.
The “whole-in-one” solution featured iPads as POS stations, Epson printers, and state-of-the-art software from APG partner Lavu Inc. Culinetwork, a POS solutions provider and Lavu partner, installed the system in the days leading up to the golf competition, which raised $148,000 for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
The Stratis system consists of a cash drawer and a holder for all tablets between 6.6 inches and 8.5 inches. The holder can be flipped to face customers so they can see the screen and sign for their purchases. Some 200,000 golf fans and professionals attended the tournament in late May, and the system helped move things along at concessions by cutting four seconds off each transaction.
