Monday, June 27, 2022 — 13:02:12 (EDT)

SAUSALITO, CALIF. (PRWEB) JUNE 27, 2022--Vivid, the software and integrated payments leader for the restaurant industry, today announced the launch of Vivid POS. Vivid POS is an iOS- and Android-based omni-channel point-of-sale (POS) system, built by restaurateurs, for restaurants.

Scalable, flexible and highly customizable, Vivid integrates a powerful cloud-based software platform and POS hardware that supports today’s varied restaurant environments – from QSRs, coffee shops and bars, to FSRs and fine dining establishments – empowering small- and mid-size businesses to serve customers exactly, where, when and how they want.

Built with value in mind, Vivid supports both traditional and online restaurant operations, providing merchants with the flexibility to implement omnichannel sales approaches. Vivid facilitates online, mobile, and at-table smart phone ordering using QR codes and mobile menus. Vivid also supports self-order kiosks, and the company’s platform enables cash discount and surcharge capabilities. What’s more, the Vivid POS on-screen checkout process makes transactions quick and easy, empowering merchants to sell more with fewer clicks, and to train employees more quickly.

“Our goal is the challenge the industry’s established players, and Vivid’s flexible solution empowers restaurants to start small and scale, and to select the best-of-breed solution components that ideally suit their business,” said Derek Henmi, Vivid Co-founder and CEO. “Our methodology for customer solution scoping and implementation is the industry’s most cost- and resource-efficient approach, and we provide retailers with the customized solutions they need, not a ‘canned’ vendor solution. As such, we enable restaurants to scale as their business grows, and our solutions deliver value with every transaction.”

The Vivid platform also helps drive front-of-the-house and marketing operations, with online reservation functionality and customer retention features, including gift card and loyalty program management capabilities. Vivid also supports back-of-house activities, with a comprehensive kitchen ticketing system and a third-party delivery app manager that enables restaurants to take orders from all popular meal delivery services and send them directly into their POS.
