July 2015 – The folks at JL Richards Prime Meats & Catering have been serving Dane county in Wisconsin for 20 years, providing a wide array of catered meats and treats for just about any event; they also have a wide selection of liquors, cordials, fine wines and imported beers. Whether you are looking to have a wedding catered or a company picnic, breakfast, lunch, pig roast, holiday party or an elegant special event, JL Richards is the caterer to look for in the greater Madison, WI area. At their Oregon, WI store location, they were looking to continue to provide the highest quality catering services by using technologies that are as reliable as their own. And that includes a top-notch POS system. JL Richards had their old POS system for 7 years and looked again to Annette Bichler who is the Managing Partner of Appleton, WI-based Pioneer Retail Systems LLC. With the Pioneer POS Stealth M5 and InfoTouch StoreKeeper software, Annette said that “JL Richards now had their next generation POS system and were able to upgrade from XP in order to maintain PCI compliance and improve system efficiency.”

InfoTouch StoreKeeper software is an amazingly affordable and robust product for integrated payment processing throughMercury Payment Systems and other common POS solutions. Designed from the ground up for use with touch screens, StoreKeeper works in a wide variety of specialty retail markets and runs under Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Embedded for Point of Service. InfoTouch has been providing comprehensive POS technologies to the services industry since 1986; some specific industries include a wide variety of specialties such as apparel, convenience stores, museums and many more. JL Richards upgrade included Stealth-M5 terminals, two printers and three StoreKeeper software licenses. The Stealth-M5 has the flexibility to integrate with software technologies like StoreKeeper to provide an incredibly specialized solution to fit the exact need.

The Pioneer POS Stealth-M5 is a 15” all-in-one Touch Computer powered by Intel’s Atom, available up to Core i7. Its versatile design and flexibility allow it to be configured to meet application requirements and budget. It has a compact footprint that allows it to take up very little countertop space and can easily be mounted on a wall or VESA pole, which is very important for a storefront like JL Richards where any amount of counter space is used for advertisements, promotions and general marketing initiatives facing their customers. Add-ons include a Magnetic Stripe Reader, Biometric Reader, integrated Epson Printer, Customer Display, and other customizable products. It is also available in 12” and 17” formats, depending on the need of the user.

By upgrading the operating system, efficiency improved within the store which enhanced the productivity of employees. The training on the new operating system took only 2 days, and they were able to go live the day after the install. The system JL Richards have been relying on for years is ready to be used once again to provide a great experience for both employees and customers. Now, they can continue to be the go-to catering business in the greater Madison, WI area through the use of technologies that will propel them forward to newer opportunities.
