  • Boston, MA—March 5, 2019 - Toast, the fastest-growing restaurant management platform in the U.S., today released a suite of new features focused on the guest experience; the Company unveiled Toast Guest Feedback, the first multi-channel guest feedback platform built exclusively for restaurants. Toast Guest Feedback empowers restaurant owners to collect and act on guest reviews in real-time via Toast Digital Receipts and Toast Go™.
  • Food cost is one of the biggest operating expenses in running a restaurant. Ingredients are often perishable, and wholesale food prices have increased more than 25% in the past five years, according to the National Restaurant Association’s Industry Report. And while you can raise your menu prices and try to work with a leaner staff, both these options are band-aid solutions that can have negative impacts on your guest’s experiences.
  • What if I told you there was a place (besides your restaurant) where you could work and improve your business while also sampling cheese, smoked salmon, and beer and wine? Enter: restaurant events.
  • To run a successful restaurant, you must have access to reliable, comprehensive data in real-time.

    While online businesses have been using customer analytics for decades, guest Wi-Fi analytics have recently emerged to provide owners of brick-and-mortar businesses with the same sorts of data-driven advantages.

    Whether you run a single location or manage a multi-unit chain, guest Wi-Fi analytics can be the catalyst for continuous improvement, helping your business reach more profitable heights by improving marketing campaigns, saving on costs, making more informed operations decisions.
  • The James Beard Awards have been running for almost 30 years. They were started by the James Beard Foundation as a way to honor the memory of James Beard, the noted chef, culinary mentor, and teacher.
  • We Americans love our pizza. Pizzerias make up 17% of restaurants in the U.S. and, in many ways, stand apart from other restaurants. Why? Well, there are a few key aspects of pizzerias that show they belong in their own category entirely:
  • According to the Restaurant Technology Industry Report, 73% of restaurants are planning to upgrade their technology within the year.
  • Credit card processing is such a confusing yet lucrative business that a whole industry has sprung up around it. If you're a small business owner trying to operate a restaurant or a store, it can be overwhelming to navigate the world of Interchange rates, merchant fees, and processing terms that can be completely different from credit card processor to credit card processor. But, at the end of the day, what we know is that a certain cut of a business's revenue is going outside of the business
  • Perhaps you’ve heard of “the cloud.”

    It’s a place where all kinds of data is stored. All of your Google searches? Those are saved in the Google cloud. Your Amazon purchases? Those are stored in the Amazon cloud. Your restaurant customer information and data? Those could be instantly accessible in your cloud.
  • EMV, which stands for Europay, Mastercard and Visa, is a global standard for chip credit and debit cards. As background, the card networks thought that theft via swipe cards was too high: if someone stole your card – or hacked into a point of sale (POS) that swiped your card – they could fairly easily copy the static data contained in the magnetic stripe and reuse it elsewhere. Chip technology via EMV makes the transaction data dynamic so should a hacker gain access to your card’s transaction data the data would be unusable anywhere else: a unique code is generated for each transaction and the same code cannot be used twice.
  • Toast, which makes management software for restaurants, announced on Tuesday it had raised $115 million in a funding round led by T. Rowe Price. The Series D round included Tiger Global and existing investors, Toast said. With the funding, six-year-old Toast joins the ranks of software's highest-valued startups with its valuation of $1.4 billion.
  • Toast is one of the fastest growing tech companies in North America. The company co-founders, Aman Narang and Steve Fredette share the story of how it all came to be, what they do that’s unique, what investors have done before committing to their mission and why it turns out most of the people they hire have had serious restaurant experience.
  • A restaurant POS system is like the central nervous system of your restaurant, carrying messages and important information from the head – the leadership – to the heart – your staff – and throughout the rest of the body – your concept as a whole.

    Choosing which restaurant POS system to invest in is a big decision, one that involves a lot of research and demos with various vendors. You need to consider the best POS software in addition to POS equipment, and that's no easy task.

    Unfortunately, after all that time spent searching for the best system, many restaurant owners end up making a huge mistake by basing their final decision on the least expensive pricing proposal. Instead, when analyzing POS system cost, it’s important to focus on how the various costs will translate into value for your business.

    So, the question then becomes: what are the different components of a restaurant POS system and how much do they typically cost?
  • We're one month into 2019 and the restaurant landscape is already buzzing with exciting introductions, inventions, and innovations.

    In years past, we've seen an increase in diner demand for delivery, experimentation with new business models, an emphasis on sustainability and hyper-local ingredient sourcing, and even fermented foods making their way onto plates and into cocktails across the country.

    Short of whipping out a crystal ball, the Toast team has been hard at work surveying the scene to report the top 2019 restaurant trends you can expect to make landfall this year.

    Here's what we found.

Professional Services:

At ISS we make customer service our #1 priority. Whether it’s through custom programming and data base development by one of our experienced Project managers, or weekend live-site hardware repair by our support staff, our goal is to provide you with the best possible service.

Project Management and Training:

ISS is more than just a provider of a turn-key software/hardware solution. Many savvy restaurant owners realize that the key to a successful POS installation hinges on the experience and professionalism of the POS dealer, and that is one of the reason they choose ISS. A project manager is assigned to each individual installation and will guide the customer through our program of 8 steps to a successful installation:

Site consultation and data base discovery:

Our project manager will cover equipment placement, electrical and data communication requirements, and query the restaurants management for all information needed to build a customized program and data base.


Data base programming development:

During this phase of the project, POS programs and screens are developed.


Hardware configuration and staging:

POS hardware is burned in, tested, configured, and software and database is loaded.


Equipment installation:

The finished POS system is installed at your site and tested

Management Training:

During these sessions our project manager goes over front of the house management tasks, as well as data base maintenance, reporting, trouble shooting, and system security.

Staff training:

Divided into sessions for FOH and BOH employees, and also in regards to different job types of the establishment including servers, bartenders, hostess’s, delivery, and floor managers.

Live on-site support:

One of the most crucial aspects of the installation. Our staff will be on hand to lend assistance and answer questions as needed.

After installation follow up and consulting:

A meeting is scheduled after the installation to insure the customer has a good understanding of the system.

Help Desk
At ISS we realize that when you need help, you need it immediately. During business hours we always have trained Help-Desk staff on duty 24/7 with a database record of your hardware, software, and previous issues. Our goal is to resolve your issue immediately. After hours you will reach our help desk directly by phone.
Although we offer only the best "retail hardened" POS hardware available, there are times when immediate on-site repair is needed, many times on weekends or after hours.
On-site hardware support includes:
Knowledgeable techs cross trained on your hardware and software. On duty 24/7 with a database of all of your past calls and information. Large staff available offering quick response times.
