Spoonity Loyalty & Maitre’d Point Of Sale: “A Winning Combination”

Spoonity Loyalty & Maitre’d Point of Sale: “A Winning Combination”

We were recently featured in a fantastic blog post by Maitre’d Point of Sale (POS) to recognize the phenomenal results Spoonity delivered with the Bridgehead loyalty and quick pay system. The blog post starts by introducing the origins of Bridgehead. It goes on to talk about how Spoonity was brought in to address the shortcomings of Bridgehead’s existing paper punch card system:

One Year – 1.5 Million Transactions

One Year – 1.5 Million Transactions

One year and 1.5 million transactions through the Spoonity platform by Bridgehead Coffeehouse! This time last year we were spending sleepless nights ironing out the kinks of our brand new rewards and quick pay platform. Just one year later it’s proven to be a tremendous success with 65,000 members across 15 stores in Ottawa. That works out to 4,300 members per store!

We commissioned a local bakery to make a cake to mark the occasion with a beautiful graphic printed in edible ink across the top.

Our Very Own Virtual Machine Server

Our Very Own Virtual Machine Server

We’ve been busy adding new clients as quick as we can. Often with a new client comes a new point of sale system we need to support. The process for supporting a new POS involves installing a copy of the software on the lonely test computer in our office, a re-purposed quad core desktop computer.  The problem is that we are bringing on so many clients & POS systems that our poor test computer is struggling with the load of multiple virtual machines constantly being accessed by our development and testing teams. So far we’ve built support for or are in the process of supporting POS systems like Maitre’d (7 &8), Halo, Volante, Micros, and Positouch. With so many new systems we tried splitting the load onto two computers and adding as much RAM as they could handle to no avail. It was time for a new system.

 

Enter the Dell Poweredge R900 server: 100 pounds of American computing muscle! Seriously though… it took two people just to carry it into the office. This machine, originally built for scalability and data-demanding enterprise applications, should be more than enough to run dozens of Windows environments for each POS system simultaneously without breaking a sweat. For you spec geeks out there this machine has 4 Xeon CPUs with 6 cores each for a total 24 cores along with 64GB of ram and 4 hard drives at 10k RPM setup in a RAID 10 configuration.
