POS Software

To the new owners of a national landmark where "Kansas City Connects", Volanté's POS (point of sale) software with peer-to-peer technology was exactly what they needed to keep their point of sale system, like their station, connected.

Union Station, Kansas City, is truly a national landmark. Once the second largest train station in the United States, it was the hub that, until its closure in the early eighties, connected Kansas City to the rest of the nation. Now, after years of neglect, Union Station has been fully restored. The Union Station Assistance Corporation, a non-profit organization, was formed to bring the station back to its former glory. Today, Union Station is once again a bustling center of activity. Boasting fine restaurants, shops, and Science City, the station now draws thousands of tourists from around the world.


Now there's a new and very effective way of monitoring employee theft, and it uses DVR (digital video recording) and technology most restaurateurs already have in place- their point of sale system.

According to the National Restaurant Association, the cost of employee theft in the United States amounts to $8.5 billion annually, or approximately 4% of food sales. A 1999 study by the Association gives a figure of $218 per person each year. In an industry where keeping food costs under control are vital, this amount can easily mean the difference between success and failure for many food and beverage operators. But keeping on top of employee theft can prove to be difficult. Checking every employee, every bag, and relying on sales reports to indicate discrepancies is tedious and not very precise. Surveillance systems, often used by operators, have traditionally relied on VHF tapes and have typically been ineffective in catching perpetrators. Now there's a new and very effective way of monitoring employee theft, and it uses DVR and technology most restaurateurs already have in place- their point of sale system.

POS Cash Register System

An efficient cash register system may be the best investment you'll ever make

The Slope Report read, "excellent conditions". It was cold but sunny and the slopes were full of skiers and snowboarders. The powder? Perfect. A group of skiers were headed towards the lodge bar. Inside the bar they waited patiently as the bartender keyed in their seating numbers, drinks and bar tab. It took over four minutes for them to get their drinks; the same amount of time it took for them to decide on dinner at another pub.

School POS Software Solution

With the many school POS systems on the market, it's surprising that so many are inadequate for meeting the diverse software needs of a school environment such as the University of British Columbia. Now, thanks to Volanté's complex point of sale solution, "Lunch Time" is no longer "Crunch Time" at UBC.

The University of British Columbia is a huge place, comprising of some 402 hectares. Surrounded by ocean and snow capped mountains, the campus is blessed with stunning views from every vantage point, and is home to over 43,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Spending a day on campus is like visiting a small city - UBC boasts literally dozens of food and beverage and retail venues. To say that the technological requirements of an institution such as UBC are complex would be an understatement to say the least.

Stadium POS Software

With its leading edge peer-to-peer technology, and wireless flexibility, Volante POS Systems adds CN Centre to its growing list of North American stadium point of sale software installations.

Volante Systems recently announced the addition of CN Centre to the growing list of stadiums now running their enterprise point of sale software.

Located in Prince George, British Columbia, CN Centre is a sports and entertainment complex, and is home to the Western Hockey League's Prince George Cougars. CN Centre was also recently nominated as the Facility of the Year (under 8,000 seats) by the Canadian Music Association. The Volante installation consists of twenty one (21) fixed POS terminals and six (6) mobile tablet computers spread throughout the stadium's Food and Beverage operation, which includes 14 private suites, four concessions, six food kiosks, and one beverage outlet. The stadium's food contractor, Eurest, is part of the Compass Group of Companies.

Hotel POS Software

When the AAA four diamond Amway Grand Plaza Hotel decided to upgrade their point of sale system, they tapped Toronto based hospitality software company Volanté Systems to do the job. The result was an extensive point of sale installation throughout the hotel and adjoining convention center, one that is fully customizable to the Amway Grand's current and future needs. The installation also adds a new market segment to Volanté's growing roster of hospitality POS clients.

Located in downtown Grand Rapids Michigan, The Amway Grand Plaza Hotel is a AAA Four Diamond luxury hotel and host to conventions, meetings, special events and weddings; and is also home to eleven food and beverage outlets. To say that The Amway Grand Plaza is much more than a hotel is an understatement - it's a true destination in West Michigan. When the time had come to expand their current offerings and source out a new hotel point of sale system that could accommodate their needs, they didn't have far to look.
