Precision Point of Sale dba OrderEasyNow O-EZ.com

50 Alberigi Drive, Suite 101

Jessup, PA 18434

(570) 468 8752

http://www.precisionpos.com/

Chamber member since 2013

Names for Photo L to R: Joyce Piccolino and Gino Piccolino

Gino Piccolino, chief architect and founder/CEO of Precision POS understands the important of

the technical side of a restaurant and owning a food industry type business. With over 20 years of

experience in the restaurant industry, it’s no surprise he started Precision POS. Precision POS Software

is a premier technology resource for restaurants. They provide technology solutions to help businesses

grow in a competitive market. Precision POS specializes in a point of sale system and online ordering

suite that includes a web version as well as Apps compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android.

I had the chance to speak with Gino to find out more his company and how his resources can help local

restaurants and other businesses.

Scranton Chamber: What sets your business apart from others?

Gino Piccolino: We are a software company and a complete technology provider. We are not selling

a product made by a third party company. We are selling the solutions developed in house and those

based are based on the understanding of the challenges a food or beverage operator encounters. I also

have personal experience as a restaurateur and senior software engineer, and I believe my knowledge

of both sides of the industries helps Precision POS develop robust solutions that are a match to the

operation versus tweaking your operation to fit our point of sale or other solutions. Our sales team has

practical knowledge in the restaurant industry and we are easily accessible 24/7 to help customers and

provide our best recommendations to them to help their business.

SC: What types of business clients does your company serve?

GP: We serve food/beverage operators. This would include pizza shops, fast-casual restaurants, fine

dining, bakeries, delis, night clubs, bars and more.

SC: Can you tell us more about the software and some of the features?

GP: Our restaurant software system has innovative features that cover all the technology areas a food

and beverage operator would need. We have a messaging system that will send texts based on certain

actions in the point of sale. This would include employees punching in, paid outs, register discrepancies

and customer feedback. Also, OrderEasyNow is one of three companies in the US that specialize in

Android, iPhone, iPad and browser based online ordering. It provides many avenues to notify a business

of a new online order. For instance, for a custom order, Precision POS will get a notification and the

order is then entered automatically and the kitchen prints out the ticket automatically too. The waitstaff

does not need involvement in taking the order.

SC: Does your company plan to expand in the future?

GP: Yes we do! The development of an Android-based point of sale system is currently in the works.

This development would help bring down the hardware costs to the end user. We are also looking to get

handhelds for waitstaff and delivery drivers that will help expedite their work process. Finally, we want

to build a central web-based administration panel that controls both the point of sale and the online

ordering.

SC: How has The Chamber been able to help your business?

GP: In partnership with The Scranton Lackawanna Building Company (SLIBCO), the economic

development affiliate of The Chamber, we were able to move our office into the cutting-edge

technology center, TekRidge Center, located in Jessup. Additionally, we have been working with The

Chamber to provide future lunch and learn programs that would pertain to the impact mobile has on

the hospitality industry.
