This year has stood the world on its side. We're dealing with problems like Daniel-San in the Karate Kid-- Wax On, Wax Off, Paint Fence, Side-Side, right? We're using the tools that we used to use from time to time as our mainstays, tools like Teams, Zoom, Office365 and Google Hangouts. This has forced people to learn remote work, which has been a challenge for some. At ITWERCS, we started from day one (2006) building a system that was designed to be managed remotely. Our Microsoft Run-Once client keeps data cached at your local computer, while harnessing the power of the Azure cloud to manage locations across the country, from anywhere. We've been doing this since launch and found that over time the ability to manage remotely dramatically improves your quality of life. Today's expectations of everyone seem to be that "always on, always listening" state, which is unsustainable in the long run without tools like ITWERCS to manage your enterprise. Contact Us to talk about how we can enable a better quality of life for you and your team.

There are a lot of famous and funny quotes about checklists, my favorite: "Even Han Solo and Chewbacca Used a Checklist."
There's no doubt that in Operations the key to a successful shift is the utilization of concise and critical checklists. Checking temperatures of hot and cold storage, along with tasting of prep items for quality has long been the standard for Operators. The onset of Covid-19 has brought forth several more sanitation and health checkpoints, making an Operator's opening tasks even more critical. We spent some time this Spring engineering a completed checklist engine. Whether you have a recurring shift checklist or an ad-hoc checklist, such as a slip and fall, we have you covered. Build your checklists, schedule them for your critical periods, and track each and every step from the Enterprise level. MultiUnit operators can get real-time status on coolers, cooktops, HVAC, plumbing and more, reported up on each checklist step.

The past months have reshaped the dining experience as well as the pre-dining experience. Different local rules and laws have dictated what percentage of our restaurants we can open, how far we can space them, how many people we can have in our buildings, and more. All of which have forced operators to rethink how they plan and manage these resources. Sure, there are third-party solutions that can be quickly enabled to manage waitlists and reservations. You simply pay a fee per month or per customers and, wait, hold on, I have to pay more?? Revenue is already restricted. Costs of Goods have spiked (thank goodness they are starting to come back down) and we spent months closed. Operators don't have any of these fees budgeted, but its a necessity. We have great news. Waitlisting and Reservations are built into the ITWERCS Hospitality Platform and can be deployed within an hour or two, complete with a balanced server seating feature to show you who should get the next table in order to maximize service. There are handy web widgets that you can embed into your web pages that connect your guests with ITWERCS in real time. Click Here for a free demo and to talk about how ITWERCS can help you.

About 24x7 Hospitality Technology
Headquartered in Chicago, IL, 24x7 Hospitality Technology was founded in 2004 and is a national provider of hospitality software, hardware and support systems to restaurant chains all across the United States. Focused on providing multiple unit restaurant operators one-to-one automation programs tailored to their business while providing unparalleled client support, 24-7 continues to expand its market penetration in the hospitality industry.
ITWERCS is the first Hospitality Point of Sale in the Microsoft Cloud that was built inside of a major US restaurant chain. Launched in 2007 and running on Microsoft Cloud since 2009, the platform completely integrates all aspects of restaurant operations in a true multi-unit architecture. Founded in 2017, ITWERCS is a owned by the Jonas division of Constellation Software.
A tip for Restaurant Executives and Operators: When customers utilize their current hardware to implement ITWERCS, their costs of entry are minimized, giving them access to world-class cloud Point of Sale without the hassle and costs of replacing entire systems. We recently converted a customer in Chicago from their legacy software, running on reliable HP hardware over from a legacy software to our platform. In a matter of an hour, they were up and running on their existing terminals, printers and cash drawers. They migrated from a non-EMV, non-cloud solution to ITWERCS with ease, and now are fully utilizing our POS, Scheduling and other modules under a simple flat monthly fee. What could be easier?
The life of a restaurant Manager is a busy one. We know it because we have lived it. We strive every day to not only provide the best systems, but also the best systems that enable Management to spend time on what's important.... Customers!
In our upcoming release, Servers will be able to request a Comp (Discount), Void or other transaction approval from the Point of Sale. The request will not only notify the rest of the Point of Sale terminals and tablets in store, but also notify the scheduled manager through the ITWERCS Team App. One click in the app and the Manager Approval can be applied in a secure, auditable form. No more running around to terminals, no more handing out your key card or number!
