POS Solution with FuturePOS
Dakota Retail Technologies & FuturePOS
According to Kory Lindersmith, co-owner of Dakota Retail Technologies, the POS installation at The Sioux Falls Arena in South Dakota was one of its largest installs and the first ever in a Sports Arena setting, which means that the VAR pulled out all the stops.
The nineteen-terminal install is built around Future POS’s Fusion technology, which runs on a Microsoft SQL database. In addition to using eight 42-in. monitors for digital signage, the Sioux Falls Arena is using Widefly handhelds throughout the stadium to allow the “Hawkers” (the guys that sell beer in the stands) take credit card payments from patrons right at their seats. For premium ticketholders, waitresses can use the handhelds to send orders directly to the kitchen for faster food delivery.
“[The arena] used to have old fashioned menu boards to display food items,” Dakota Retail Technologies owner Kory Lindersmith says. “With the addition of Future POS’s digital signage, the arena will now feature real-time menu updates on 42-in. television screens. The HTML-based screens are easy for the customer to use and to create customized layouts. With the scheduled content feature, the arena can also display advertisements, specials, and much more.”
This project definitely involved teamwork. On the Future POS side, it has taken years of software development and hard work to get to the level needed to support this large install. Dakota Retail Technologies put blood, sweat, and tears into this install in order to make things happen in such a short deadline.
