Fast food giant McDonald’s has signed a global licensing deal with Torex Retail to deploy and develop the technology firm’s latest point-of-service software, NewPOS-POS.
The agreement means McDonald’s and the retail systems specialist Torex can both develop the technology independently in the future, giving the restaurant chain the ability to customise the platform to meet its unique operational needs.
McDonald’s is already using Torex New-POS POS software in restaurants in 84 countries on a wide range of platforms, including handheld terminals, kiosks and POS systems.
The Torex NewPOS-POS restaurant platform is designed for the specific demands of fast-food restaurants. It is claimed to “significantly improve operational results, including increased counter and drive-thru speed of service, improved order accuracy and streamlined kitchen production.”
McDonald’s said its decision to evolve a long-standing relationship with Torex followed “many successful implementations worldwide” and reflected how the software offered “the best fit for McDonald’s future plans.”
The platform also includes enterprise management tools help clients to streamline deployment, support and software distribution.
McDonald’s renewed commitment to Torex comes after the systems firm was reformed in the second half of last year under new owners and spelled out its aim of becoming an end-to-end retail systems supplier. It said late last year that it wants to double in size in three years by selling organisations a wider range of products more effectively.
