National Casual Dining – Point of Sale
Refresh & Deployment
When a national casual dining restaurant required a Point of Sale technology refresh they realized that the field services requirements would require both high and low voltage trades as well as the skills necessary to decommission, turn up and test the new POS system. The company desired that the work would be done overnight with full store operation the next day. Installation consisted of (8) NCR POS, (1) NCR Console, (5) POS Printers, (1) WAP, (2) Charging Stations, (9) Shelfs & electrical circuits.
Project Duration: 60 Days
Trades and Skills: IT POS Technology Specialist, Journeyman Electrician, Electrician Apprentice
Consult with Customer to develop an accelerated schedule.
A deployment plan was developed to enable multi-trade teams to complete the technology refresh on an overnight basis.
