As you are well aware, 2015 has been a significant year on many levels. From political upheavals around the globe to violent events on national levels as well as natural disasters of all kinds, it seems that every time we turn around there is something else that is occupying our time and attention and causing a strain on our budgets. In no area has this negativity been more evident than in the downturn of the economy.
From individually owned businesses to corporate conglomerates it is difficult to find any size business that has not been negatively impacted by the fluctuations and dips in the market. It is also hard to find any type of business that has not felt the squeeze. From retail to manufacturing, foodservice to hospitality industries, everyone has to make difficult decisions in order to keep their heads above water.
While there are plenty of arguments as to the cause of the fluctuations as well as who is to blame, one thing everyone can agree on is that it is time to tighten our belts. No industry has been hit harder than the restaurant and foodservice industries, for when people start feeling the pinch of lessened financial income, luxuries like meals out and prepared foods tend to be some of the first things cut from their budgets.
It is with this in mind that we at Ideal Software would like to thank you for continuing to support us in our development efforts to bring you reliable and robust software systems.
This year saw the rapid expansion of our own pos, Ideal Point-of-Sale©, built for the food service industry that runs on a wide range of hardware and interfaces directly with our very well established inventory software, Ideal Stock Control ©.
Additionally, we saw the successful launch of our mobile app, IdealPOS©, available for download from the iTunes App Store. IdealPOS© mobile app offers real-time access to your Ideal Point-of-sale© system, providing you instant, up-to-date access to all your stores data at the touch of a button! Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, we are currently developing our Android mobile app, that should be available in next 2-3 months. We couldn’t have done this without your input and support!
We also strive to bring you the latest information and trends in the foodservice and restaurant industries, information that will enable you to increase your profits in the New Year without having to skimp on things like customer service or quality of goods or services.
We look forward to continuing to provide you with ongoing support throughout the New Year and into the foreseeable future.
From controlling your inventory, to ensuring accurate ordering to monitoring individual and overall cost of sale and much more, Ideal Software has what you need to get the job done and to get it done right.
So from all of us at Ideal Software, we wish you happy holidays and a safe and festive holiday season.
Owner, Ideal Software
