January 2016 – In the middle of Broad Street’s iconic “curved building” is Bangor, Maine’s newest restaurant hotspot, Evenrood’s. Evenrood’s is Bangor’s newest addition in fine dining serving up New American, Greek, and Mediterranean cuisine with impeccable service. General Manager Lisa Leonard was faced with quite a few decisions when opening Evenrood’s doors for the first time in 2015. One of those decisions would be what type of POS system would be the most beneficial for her patrons and staff alike. After considering many options, Ms. Leonard chose the LionWise software on the Pioneer POS Stealth M5 with Pioneer’s Premium Warranty Service. Bangor’s restaurant scene is quite impressive, and the staff at Evenrood’s needed an equally impressive system to accommodate their top notch service to their guests every day

LionWise is a trusted provider of affordable restaurant and retail POS software. Ms. Leonard said, “I chose LionWise after researching many POS options and almost giving up. Many systems are just too overwhelming and unnecessary, but LionWise was impressively straightforward. After the demonstration, I knew I found what was needed, intuitive, easy-to-learn, and efficient.” The LionWise POS system helps manage restaurants more profitably with comprehensive reporting capabilities and is ideal for table service businesses like Evenrood’s. Ms. Leonard added that, “The staff is thrilled with LionWise. One area in particular is that we are booking large parties as we have the room to do so, and LionWise and Pioneer POS make the restaurant function so much more efficiently.”

Pioneer POS partnered with LionWise to install multiple Stealth M5 15” terminals at Evenrood’s including ST-EP4 Thermal receipt printers. The Stealth M5 is an all-in-one touchcomputer powered by Intel’s Atom, available up to Core i7. It can be set up to run as a diskless and fanless thin client, reducing dust and grease intake, and improving the life of the terminal. Its versatile design allows it to take up little countertop space and can easily be mounted to a wall or pole. This system is ideal for restaurants looking for a compact footprint while maintaining robust features.

Scott Filiault, President of LionWise said, “We made the decision this year to start making a transition to Pioneer hardware for our new customer rollouts to gain the increased quality and reliability of their products in the field. We’ve partnered with different companies in the past that have an excellent break/fix model, but when customer’s need to call on that too often, it doesn’t matter how good the break/fix response is. We feel the best way for LionWise to increase our customer’s satisfaction and ROI is to deliver total solutions that just continue to work.”

Evenrood’s is now using the POS systems for gift card processing, credit card processing, and customer loyalty programs. The ease of use and the reliability of the Stealth M5 with LionWise POS software allows Ms. Leonard and her staff to maintain consistent, superior service. Scott concluded, “The LionWise software is rock solid, we need partners whose products are the same.”
