Partnership empowers restaurants with in-store security notifications, loss prevention tools, and operations management
Toast, the fastest-growing restaurant technology platform in the U.S., announced a partnership with Solink, the industry-leading smart video and data platform— last month from the floor of the 2018 National Restaurant Association Show. Together, Toast and Solink will provide deep insight into restaurants’ security and operations. Toast transactions will synchronize with users’ existing video camera systems, instantly aligning data with video in real-time through Solink’s user-friendly mobile app.
“We benefit from the Solink and Toast integration, not just for security, but for store operations as well. Solink’s daily digest emails are great because they’re delivered to the heads of each department, so everyone has the same consistent intel,” said Pete Stamm, IT manager, &pizza.
The Solink smart hub and Toast integration provides restaurants with:
- Security notifications: Event notifications automatically alert users to suspicious activity; motion alert captures unusual action, allowing users to review only crucial video; and, sharing features enable users to send clips and data to authorities and insurance companies.
- Loss prevention tools: Search parameters spotlight staff, transaction types, and menu inputs; dashboard data matches flawlessly with video, allowing users to view specific moments and transactions.
- Operations management: Discovery dashboard shows sales, wait times, order amounts, and customer service interactions; time tracking integrates with Toast and/or survey results to determine if compliance caused a failure; and, 90 day standard video recording allows users to review high-traffic points and determine solutions.
“We’re very excited to announce this partnership with Toast,” said Pierre Hage, VP of marketing at Solink. “Toast’s ease of use and innovation pair perfectly with Solink’s vision for the ‘smart restaurant ecosystem.’ And our vision becomes a reality through great partnerships like this.”
Toast Restaurant POS offers advanced functionality to manage the day-to-day operations of the restaurant, including quick menu modifications, real-time enterprise reporting and labor management on an easy-to-use interface. The platform also features revenue-driving tools including physical and digital gift cards, loyalty programs and online ordering.
