The Moulin Rouge, the most famous cabaret in the world, was co-founded in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller. Close to Montmartre on Boulevard de Clichy in the 18th arrondissement, it is marked by the red windmill on its roof. The Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the cancan dance which evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today, The Moulin Rouge is one of the most famous symbols in Paris for Parisians and Tourists, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. Every evening, the establishment puts on 2 shows and manages 400 tables to which more than 1800 guests per night are served.
Wanting to keep up with cutting edge technology, The Moulin Rouge started to look for a new POS system. They needed to implement software that interfaced with their reservation and ticketing software. In addition, they wanted to replace their hardware with terminals that could withstand the nightclub environment of ice and beverage spillage. These terminals are well used and deal with over 600,000 customers per year. They needed the most robust hardware in the market but it also needed speed to keep up with their busy employees. The Moulin Rouge also required the hardware have a Solid-State Drive (SSD) for improved performance.
