Yesterday five enthusiastic Vivonetters toured four different Vivonet clients’ restaurants around the Kitsilano area in Vancouver, Canada. The purpose of the VivoTour was to not only support our clients but to gain candid, honest and unfiltered feedback about our cloud pos products and customer services.
Our team is excited to release a major Vivonet breakthrough with an entire new product. If your restaurant is looking for new innovative ways to engage your customers, get rid of line ups and give your staff more time to move your restaurant forward, this new product should spark your interest.Vivonet Kiosk is a branded iPad application that helps restaurant consumers browse a restaurant menu, place an order and pay their tab. All three steps take only minutes and no server or staff member is required. The payment is processed through the credit card reader attached to the Kiosk.
Vivonet would like to extend a warm thank you to our clients, family and friends for all the support you have provided us in 2013. We’ve had a fantastic year full of new opportunities and we are happy to say we are constantly finding new ways to help restaurants grow.
At Vivonet we pride ourselves in hiring people from the restaurant industry. Some have worked in the restaurant industry for up to 27 years before making the move to work on our POS solutions. Believe me when I say when we have a potluck it shows. Today every department from the Vivonet team shared food from different cultures and it was crockpotastic. We had 9 crockpots prepared with pork, soups and everything glorious.
We are very excited that one of our clients, “Pita Pit”, will be featured in an upcoming episode of Be The Boss!

Hospitality Technology magazine recently surveyed restaurant executives and POS vendors, including Vivonet, on 2013 trends. In the article “POS Software Trends 2013” Abigail A. Lorden Editor-in-Chief and Dorothy Creamer, Managing Editor state that technology capabilities — and particularly those that can positively impact the customer experience — are driving new investments with restaurateurs. The point of sale (POS) is a central focus for restaurant innovation and investment, and Hospitality Technology’s annual “POS Software Trends” report shows that operators are looking to add a variety of new capabilities in 2013.
