Vegan Food & Technology Connect

CornBread

 

Emerald Business Systems latest MobileBytes install tackles Eugene’s premier vegan restaurants the Cornbread Cafe . The cozy 1950’s diner atmosphere, friendly staff and vegan comfort food are what make Cornbread Café stand out in the Eugene restaurant scene. Cornbread Café’ is known for trying to source as many local ingredients as possible, and they have a strict policy against using genetically engineered ingredients in their food.

Cornbread’s prior point of sale system was lacking in reliability, features and customers service which finally compounded enough that they knew moving away from it was the right decision.  We here at Mobilebytes TechEmerald proposed moving them to the MobileBytes cloud based point of sale system. With MobileBytes advanced feature set and ease of use we knew we could help the Cornbread Café grow their business while reducing overhead. Cornbread Café plans on using Mobilebytes fully integrated online ordering to market their food to an ever growing technology oriented customer base. They will also be using MobileBytes advanced reporting features to help reduce food & labor costs increasing their bottom line.

By getting the right technology in place we eliminated the headaches that their prior system created and allowed them to focus on providing their customers with the dinning experience they deserve. MobileBytes POS leverages power, convenience, and simplicity to create a Point-of-Sale system that works for you. POS software should provide a substantial return on your investment and we know it will for the Cornbread Café.

Emerald Business Systems at RSPA 2017

The Emerald sales team just got back from RSPA RetailNOW 2017 in sunny Las Vegas Nevada. RSPA is always enjoyable as it allows us at Emerald Business Systems to connect with fellow dealers, industry partners and form new relationships with companies that can enhance & strengthen the core services and systems that we provide to you our customers. We have come back from the show refreshed and encouraged about the new technologies that were shown. These new technologies were focused on substantially improving the customer order flow and enhancing the dining experience. These technologies will allow us to provide new solutions that will cut labor costs and increase revenue.

 

MobileBytes Kiosk

MobileBytes Self Service Kiosk

One Major highlight for us was the MobileBytes Self-Order Kiosk app. The deceptively simple kiosk software prompts customers through the ordering process with ease. The customer is able to pay via credit card right on the kiosk or notify the cashier that a cash payment is due at the front counter.  Kiosk’s are a way of cutting labor costs and enhancing your customers order experience by reducing lines and making their order process an interactive experience.

“At the end of the day, we’re bringing powerful technology to restaurants of any size, and helping them improve their bottom lines,” says Dan Calderone, MobileBytes CEO. “You don’t have to be a large, national chain to be able to afford the benefits of kiosk ordering.”

Emerald (EBS) Launches New Website

Emerald Business Systems new informational website!

It’s been over 5 years since we last revamped the Emerald Business Systems website. Of course there has been the occasional update, but this time we’ve completely kicked the old layout and objective out the window. Before we focused marketing only. While we are still providing marketing and product information specific to EBS, we are also shifting toward providing information on the entire hospitality and retail technology spectrum. We hope you’ll bookmark us and check back regularly to find out about new technologies, solutions and requirements in the retail and hospitality industry. We will also provide you with plenty of information and examples of how others in your industry are using technology to improve and grow their businesses. So there it is, and here we go:

It’s amazing how much has changed in just the 5 years since the page was built. Technology years are like dog years in that way, where so much can change in so little time. Here’s what’s been going on at EBS in those five years:

Emerald Business Systems by the numbers since 2011:

New Customers: 265

New Installations: 161

New Restaurant Installations: 93

New Retail Installations: 43

New Surveillance Installations: 25

New Cash Registers: 123

Emerald Business Systems highlights since 2011:

Since we built the last iteration of our webpage we have grown our installation base, solution offerings, and product knowledge. We have added 2 additional implementation / programming  specialists and an additional implementations consultant. We have added 2 new restaurant products, 1 of which is a mobile iPad solution and both offer integrated online ordering. We have added a new hi-resolution surveillance system and a new, more advanced retail product. We also have expanded our hardware offerings in both directions, now offering workstations with larger touchscreens and smaller mobile devices than we have ever carried before.

In that same time period, we have taken over all of the food service on the U of O campus (Housing and the EMU, including the new Falling Sky Pizzeria in the basement) with the Micros 3700 system. We installed a 80+ terminal system at the Matthew Knight Arena. We installed a retail solution at 11 stores for Goodwill of Lane & South Coast Counties (including their new stores in Brookings and Anchorage). We also installed 9 Micros 3700 systems for Howling Coyote Inc., a franchisee of Taco Time and Arby’s. Just last year we converted Seven Feathers Casino to the new Micros Simphony product, converting their 50 terminal system over with minimal down time.

Andrew Scheidl with Snowy Owl Design deserves a huge amount of credit for configuring the back end of the website and training us to add content and configure the pages going forward. There’s no way this project would have been completed without his help. I would strongly recommend his services to anybody else who is creating or redesigning their website for their business.
