ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point of sale (POS) software and integrated technical solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, today announced the release of Brink Cloud Kitchen, the first POS and production management system specifically designed to operate in cloud kitchens. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR).
In response to the challenges operators now face regarding off premise ordering/dining, many restaurant brands are developing purpose built stand-alone kitchens, often referred to as “Cloud Kitchens,” whose sole purpose is to fulfill delivery orders. Cloud Kitchens relieve operational pressure from restaurants and ensure the best possible experience for all guests, regardless of ordering channel. These locations do not offer dine-in options; instead, they exclusively handle the high number of delivery orders the brick and mortar locations receive each day.
“PAR Technology is pleased to announce the release of Brink POS Cloud Kitchen. Restaurants are evolving to meet rapidly changing consumer preferences. PAR is committed to continuously offering innovative technology solutions that help our customers get to tomorrow faster,” said Paul Rubin, Chief Strategy Officer, ParTech, Inc.
The Cloud Kitchen version of Brink’s industry leading POS software is specially configured to emphasize operations for orders originating from outside the property. It can seamlessly receive and integrate orders from all major ordering channels and consolidate them into a unified workflow, whether the order came from a delivery platform or the operator’s own online or mobile ordering platforms. All orders are dynamically combined into optimized production workflows, including support for multiple assembly lines, to ensure the correct advancement of orders through the kitchen. Brink Cloud Kitchen also provides the ability to operate multiple brands from within a single facility, allowing for brand specific kitchen routing and revenue allocation by menu item.
PAR is partnering with ItsaCheckmate, a leading platform that integrates multiple online ordering services into Brink POS. ItsaCheckmate offers restaurants across the nation a platform that cuts through digital clutter by funneling orders from dozens of online ordering sources, including UberEats, GrubHub, Caviar, DoorDash, Delivery.com, Ritual and more.
“We are pleased to partner with PAR to advance its Brink POS software capabilities,” said ItsaCheckmate Chief Executive Officer Vishal Agarwal. “Our partnership addresses the need for a combined solution that can accurately and quickly funnel orders into the kitchen, but still allow them to be separated for pick-up by delivery platforms. All of this ensures that even the most diverse or complex orders are fulfilled accurately and then efficiently staged for pick-up so restaurants can continue delighting their guests.”
