Custom Business Solutions, developers of the restaurant industry’s first tablet-based point of sale system, announced the release of NorthStar Order Entry 4.0 with expanded, robust capabilities for improving operations and increasing efficiencies for restaurant and food service businesses.
First developed for the restaurant industry five years ago, NorthStar Order Entry provides an omni-channel platform for guests and servers to more efficiently order while managing security, improving speed of service, and enhancing the guest experience with better technology.
The new features in NorthStar Order Entry 4.0 are based on both operator feedback and Custom Business Solutions’ research on future needs for the industry, according to Art Julian, CEO and founder of Custom Business Solutions (CBS).
“This enhanced version of NorthStar gives operators more flexibility and the technology muscle to handle so many more tasks from one system, “ Julian says. “NorthStar 4.0 also offers specific features for operators in other market segments including the cruise industry and the amusement park industry.”
NorthStar 4.0 will offer more than a dozen new updated features. A few of the highlights include:
EMV Compliance: NorthStar will support full EMV compliance with the ability to accept new chip cards. As of October 2015, the liability for fraudulent cards has moved to the restaurateur, and providing customers with the ability to process chip-enabled credit cards reduces liabilities for the restaurant.
