Toronto based Volante POS Systems has announced a wireless, Linux POS solution, allowing for a flexible and cost effective solution for the hospitality industry.

The number of POS (point of sale) terminals running Linux in North America has increased dramatically in recent years. For many business owners, there's good reason to go with a Linux POS solution. As an operating system, Linux is more cost effective, flexible, and allows for greater freedom of choice in software than more mainstream operating systems. Savings can also be found in regards to licensing, installation, administrative and support costs. Linux offers all this without sacrificing functionality. The challenge however, has been finding a flexible point of sale system that can actually run on Linux.

One industry taking full advantage of this trend is the hospitality industry. The growth of Linux in this sector demonstrates that hospitality operators are no different than any anyone else in the fact that they want technology to help them reduce costs and increase revenues. But how else can technology help them achieve this goal? The cost advantages of smart technology can be taken even further by adding a wireless point of sale device to the mix. Linux POS & wireless mobile computing can run hand in hand, working together to maximize profits.

Marrying wireless POS technology with Linux helps the bottom line in many ways, including, but not limited to:

- Wireless hand-held units mean decreased time is spent for Servers during the order taking process; therefore increasing table turns.
- Increased productivity of serving staff translates into decreased labor costs.
- Food costs are decreased due to more accurate order taking and less waste.
- Increased up-selling opportunities via serving staff having more time with customers.
- With traditional, stationary restaurant POS systems, time is wasted as serving staff stand in line waiting their turn at the terminal. With wireless mobile computing, each order is transmitted instantly at the table via a wireless hand-held device, allowing serving staff to go directly to the next table.

It's for this reason that Volante has jumped on the wireless and Linux POS bandwagon.

Volante offers a Java based, wireless point of sale solution for Linux. In fact, Volante has revolutionized the wireless POS industry in a creative and innovative way. By using PC notebooks (not much bigger then a hand held) the entire POS software is loaded on the unit and it runs as a terminal with peer to peer, data synching etc. PDA's do not work in this manner- they require writing to the unit (in other words, new code, separate product) plus they're not robust enough for food and beverage. Volante (volantesystems.com) has evolved its software into the peer to peer architecture, and now POS software can be loaded onto a small wireless notebook with amazing results. The technology is without peer in the POS industry - nobody else can do what Volante is doing. And because Volante POS software is written entirely in Java, it runs seamlessly on Linux.

The benefits of wireless/Linux POS technology isn't limited to just table service restaurants either. Excellent results can also be seen in other venues, such as hotels, stadiums, trade shows, casinos, arenas, race tracks, hospitals and outdoor sales areas (such as roof top patios, for instance) where conventional POS terminals aren't practical nor feasible.

Wireless mobile computing from Volante offers other important and innovative features. For instance, the menus on the hand-held are the exact same menus on the traditional register. The databases are in sync with one another. You don't have to program your hand-held; it's an extension of the host computer. This approach is less expensive because it doesn't require separate servers for hand-helds and traditional registers, translating in even more savings for hospitality operators.

Partnering a Linux POS solution with wireless mobile computing truly allows hospitality operators to enter the 21st century, giving them an extra edge in a fiercely competitive industry.
