Software platform allows pcAmerica restaurant clients to easily adopt mobile technology, take orders and payments at the table
Pearl River, NY – pcAmerica, a leading developer of retail and restaurant point-of-sale (POS) software, has acquired San Diego-based MobiMagic, a software platform that extends POS capabilities onto mobile devices, enabling line busting in quick service restaurants, as well as tableside ordering and payment in table service environments.
MobiMagic integrates a restaurant’s existing POS menu items into a simple, elegant and powerful app used on Apple iPhone®, iPod Touch®, and iPad Mini® devices. The interface empowers end-users with mobile technology without spending a tremendous amount of time and money on the development, design and integration with their current POS system.
“pcAmerica’s Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile is powered by MobiMagic, so it was a natural progression to acquire the company and add it to our product lineup,” said David J. Gosman, CEO of pcAmerica. “At pcAmerica, we believe in cost-effective solutions that are user-friendly, so we are pleased to be able to offer our clients the opportunity to easily integrate mobile technology into their current operations.”
pcAmerica’s Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile empowers clients with fast tableside ordering and payments using an Apple® iPod touch®, iPhone® or iPad Mini®. Using Restaurant Pro Express™ Mobile, servers can take orders tableside and securely process credit card transactions through an attached encrypted credit card reader. Payments are processed in front of patrons and their credit cards never leave the table, virtually eliminating the possibility of theft from card skimming. Wait staff may print receipts with Epson’s Mobilink™ wireless mobile printer or email diners a paperless receipt. The mobile ordering system also supports various taxation rules, discounts and happy hour pricing.
