SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2012) - Dinerware, a leading provider of restaurant point of sale software, today announced the release of version 3.3, which includes built-in gift card support, enhancements for table management, cash control, and business reporting. Version 3.3 also includes additions to the Virtual Client API, which will provide integration support to several new 3rd party products.
Dinerware version 3.3 introduces a built-in gift card capability that can be used (for single locations) with no additional transaction fees. Restaurants using Dinerware can now market and promote their business through the use of branded gift cards without any concern for per-swipe fees.
Dinerware's new release also provides significant enhancements for table management. The system now provides the 'host' with a full view of the restaurant's seating areas with real-time visibility of table status. This feature helps full service restaurateurs deliver a faster seating experience for walk-in guests and allow more efficient table turnover to grow their revenue and profitability. Using this feature, restaurateurs are now able to create custom floor maps from their own uploaded blueprints or actual pictures of their restaurant. Customized table buttons are placed on these images to provide a realistic and interactive floor map for restaurant employees to better serve their guests.
In addition to these significant enhancements, Dinerware has added more cash control reports, customization options to daily strip reports which can be instantly printed at any terminal's receipt printer, and usability enhancements to make the growing list of system settings easy to access and change based on the unique characteristics of each restaurant concept supported by Dinerware.
Brian Baughman, Product Manager, states, "I'm very proud of this release. We have put a lot of hard work into involving customers and Dinerware partners into the design and testing of this release and we believe customers will be very happy with the outcome."
Rob Freytag, who leads Dinerware's Channel efforts, asserts, "Dinerware version 3.3 represents our ongoing efforts to add features to the product while keeping it the easiest to use software in the industry. We are excited to start promoting these new features to Dinerware's worldwide community of partners and users."
