More than 1,000,000 transactions processed through active Vivonet POS systems yesterday

Posted on Fri, Oct 17, 2014 @ 14:10 PM

Thanks to all our clients for making this possible! Vivonet reached a huge milestone by passing 1,000,000 transactions a day, three days out of seven this week. Vivonet also processed  $7,800,000 dollars worth of transactions in one day. This is a huge achievement and we are happy to say these numbers have only been growing steadily. On behalf of the Vivonet Team we would like to thank every client for your continued partnership. Without your commitment and collaboration this would not have been possible.

These numbers derive from all Vivonet’s active clients from limited service restaurants, full service restaurants, food service contractors, chain restaurants and food carts and trucks. Vivonet’s central reporting service aggregates these metrics based on the amount of transactions and fiscal transactions from consumer payments being processed through Vivonet POS, Vivonet Tablet, Vivonet Kiosk or Vivonet Mobile.

Reaching this milestone proves Vivonet is truly answering the need of the market. The Vivonet team is extremely dedicated to finding out how we can truly help restaurants succeed and we are always coming up with new ways to make stronger connections with our clients. Keep checking in on the Vivonet blog for a big new product announcement that will bring the Vivonet community closer in new innovative ways.

This milestone is great for Vivonet, but what does it mean for Vivonet’s clients?
• At Vivonet we believe in shared success. As Vivonet grows it has more bandwidth and resources to create new innovative solutions that help our clients grow within every segment of the restaurant industry.
• Vivonet’s understanding of the industry grows as we have more clients. We can use the data we collect to predict industry trends, diagnose industry gaps and even share this data with our clients.
• Increased clients means an increased community of professional restaurateurs. We know that no two restaurants are the same or should be the same and as we work with more diverse clients our implementation team can cater each POS eco-system to the unique culture and operations of each brand.

Vivonet ensures all POS transactions are secure and we don’t share any identifiable data without signed consent. Our client’s security is our number one priority.

CEO Blog: How Kiosks can help address the labour shortage

Posted on Wed, Sep 03, 2014 @ 11:09 AM

A word from Vivonet's CEO Ryan Volberg: How consumer self-ordering can help restaurants address the labour shortage

In June 2014, the Canadian Federal Government modified the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, which made the challenge of finding quality staff even more difficult for restaurants. Since the program change, many restaurants in Canada have been forced to search for scarce local candidates. To manage this challenge, restaurateurs are now looking for new ways to adapt to the sparse labour market while continuing to meet guest expectations.

Are you running a promo and looking to give your staff incentives to push promotional items? The employee sales mix report is a great way to keep track of individual products sold by each of your employees. This report can be used to quickly pull data on individual employees and see where they rank among others by showcasing specific item sales numbers. The Employee Sales Mix report will help your restaurant carry out contests to inspire staff members and motivate your staff to up-sell items with high margins.
