As the giraffe restaurant chain embarks on a major expansion programme across the UK, Aloha restaurant point of sale software supplied by NFS Technology has been selected to deliver a great customer experience, whilst helping to streamline operations.
giraffe restaurants was founded in Hampstead in 1998 by Juliette Joffe and her husband Russel. Today the chain boasts 60 restaurants across the UK and two in Dubai, offering food from around the world, served to the sound of great music.
Aloha from NFS offers a complete solution with seamless integration between table service, quick service, stock control, labour management, loyalty and gift cards, head office management… and more.
Speaking about the way giraffe has now begun working with NFS to develop a range of solutions for better service, revenue and cost management, Juliette Joffe comments: “We are looking forward to working with a truly professional company and taking our epos system to a new level.”
Orderman-SolAs Aloha rolls out across the restaurant chain, giraffe is also looking to add Orderman Sol, Europe’s solution leader in mobile technology. The hand-held device was specially developed for the hospitality industry to deliver orders straight from the table to the kitchen. It’s robust, intuitive, easy to learn and easy to use with a similar user interface to that of the iPod Touch.
The giraffe chain was acquired by Tesco in March last year as part of a strategy to utilise some of the space in larger stores and to offer families a compelling experience outside their weekly shopping trip.
“NFS is very excited about working with giraffe, a growing restaurant operator ideally suited to a solution like Aloha, a leader in restaurant technology.” says NFS Chief Executive Officer Luis De Souza. “We are extremely engaged with giraffe in all its requirements to build a complete restaurant management solution around Aloha, incorporating mobile solutions, credit cards, loyalty cards and a great reporting platform. With Aloha and its associated technology rolled out across the Giraffe chain, restaurant managers will see significant benefits in terms of a common approach and delivery of critical business information.”
“We are also associated with other Tesco brands, including Euphorium Bakery and Fred’s New York-style diner. We are delighted to have now taken this association a major step forward with the rollout of Aloha across all new giraffe restaurants.”
