Combining flexible touchscreen computers and all-in-one management software gives restaurants more options and flexibility with their restaurant technology

MILPITAS, Calif. — January 14, 2016 — Elo, a global supplier of touchscreen solutions, today announced Toast, the all-in-one restaurant software platform company, has certified Elo’s I-Series touchscreen computers for use with its own, customizable restaurant software platform. Elo’s out-of-the-box touch computers allow restaurant operators to combine flexible hardware with customizable software. Toast enables restaurant owners to customize employee permissions, route orders to specific prep stations, make modifications on the fly, and access real-time business analytics from anywhere, using any device with internet access. As an Elo partner, Toast can now offer restaurant owners any combination of 10-inch, 15-inch, and 22-inch Elo Android I-Series touch computers built to survive rigorous commercial use in fast-paced restaurants.

Elo makes touchscreen digital interaction easy with commercial-grade I-Series touchscreen hardware. The Elo I-Series displays are fanless, solid-state devices available with Android OS and built for high-volume use. The Toast and Elo partnership enables restaurant owners to implement a complete system that includes integrated point of sale (POS) software, which supports loyalty programs, online ordering, gift cards and more. Restaurant operators can deploy cost-effective, innovative hardware easily with built-in card readers, Ethernet ports, and USB ports for scalable plug-and-play solutions. Elo and Toast customers can further customize their systems by using Toast’s software and Elo’s touchscreens as bar or kitchen displays that can be flexibly mounted in portrait or landscape orientation and on tabletops anywhere in the restaurant for added back-of-house efficiency.

"Elo boosts restaurant software capabilities by providing a robust platform for partners like Toast to offer integrated loyalty, sales, labor, and POS software solutions,” said Craig Witsoe, CEO of Elo. “Elo I-Series hardware combined with Toast software provides an all-in-one, easy-to-use restaurant management platform."

“Restaurants require plug-and-play solutions that withstand the rigors of their environments,” said Chris Comparato, CEO of Toast. “We selected Elo because its hardware functions with the reliable Android platform and is built for commercial environments rather than consumer applications.”
