ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America, an industry leader in food services technology, announced today the launch of its new turnkey kiosk solution that provides restaurant customers an immersive, customized, and faster experience. The new solution will premiere at FSTEC 2018 at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando on October 1-3, 2018, in Booth 801.
“Panasonic kiosks have proven that they drive a significantly higher check and that the guests using them experience an overall satisfaction similar to or greater than those placing their orders directly with staff,” said Michael D. Clarke, Owner, Lickety Split Food Services, LLC, a Texas Dairy Queen multi-unit franchisee.
Panasonic’s end-to-end platform is managed at the enterprise level, allowing chain restaurants to deploy large installations easily and efficiently. The enterprise-grade application features full Point-of-Sale and Payment integration, a cloud-based enterprise management portal, flexible screen design, highly responsive user interface, suggestive selling, and order customization throughout the customer ordering journey.
“The highly intuitive, digital user interface promotes customer engagement, increases restaurant sales and profits, and frees up staff to tend to other business needs,” said M. Faisal Pandit, SVP and Chief Digital Officer, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. “Customers interact with kiosks in myriad venues and have come to expect that same connectivity in restaurants too. And kiosks can have a significant impact on sales and profits with transaction uplifts of 20%-30% versus the traditional counter.”
Restaurant brands can have one strategic partner for a comprehensive menu of hardware choices, software, and consulting, with full deployment and after-installation services that can help scale self-ordering kiosks across an entire enterprise with speed and agility.

Panasonic Pyramid Computer kiosks complement Panasonic’s existing Point of Sales, rugged tablet and handheld offering
BRACKNELL, UK. 19th FEBRUARY 2018
Panasonic today announced that it will offer Pyramid ComputerGmbH’s leading polytouch® 32 passport interactive touch screen kiosks as part of its range of solutions to address the challenge of the new omni-channel retail era. Pyramid’s fully customised solutions, including comprehensive logistical and service support, will complement Panasonic’s existing range of retail point of sale solutions and rugged tablet and handheld devices.
Pyramid’s polytouch® 32 passport range of interactive kiosk solutions can be used for a variety of application areas such as product presentations, self-checkouts and information terminals. The modularity and flexible design of the devices, with the best in touch technology, makes them an ideal complement for Panasonic’s range of retail POS and Toughpad tablet and handheld devices.
Robert Blowers, General Manager of Engineering and Project Management at Panasonic Computer Product Solutions Europe said: “With customers rapidly changing their buyer behaviour to use multiple shopping channels during purchases, including traditional stores, mobile devices, online and the growing trend in self-service, new technology solutions are required to facilitate this omni-channel retail era. The combination of Toughbook mobile devices and POS solutions, along with the complimentary products from Pyramid enables retailers to deliver customers and staff an effective, easy-to-use and consistent technology experience whether its taking orders on the move, serving at a till or self-serving at a kiosk in store.”
Graeme Derby, UK Country Manager for Pyramid Computer, added: “We share a design and service philosophy with Panasonic that make us ideal business solution partners. We too have designed and engineered our products to provide business customers with the flexibility to exactly match their needs. For example, our solutions can be tailored to include options such as payment systems, label and ticket printers, bar code scanners and fingerprint readers.”
Alongside the retail industry, Panasonic and Pyramid also see business opportunities for their solutions for customers in the hospitality, post / logistics, health and aviation industries with the increasing need for selfservice check-in and check-out systems and ticketing solutions.
Panasonic’s rugged Toughpad tablets and point-of-sale (POS) workstations take multifunctional performance way beyond that of standard consumer devices. Their ability to perform in every environment – in store or dining areas, outdoors and in warehouses – makes them the perfect tool for work in all retail applications.
Critically, they help retailers deliver the omni-channel customer experience that sets successful businesses apart today. Panasonic equips retail managers and staff with reliable and tailored devices with high-visibility displays that are ideal for order taking. The variety of tablet and handheld devices enable retail staff access to real-time information, allowing them to provide customers with in-depth product details and to maximise upsell opportunities at the point of service. The rugged form factors mean the devices are sturdy but lightweight and mobile enough for store operations and warehouse usage. The long battery life and integrated barcode readers and payment systems, along with full Windows OS, mean retailers can manage multiple applications from a single device.
