WAND Corporation 2009 Open House Announced

Eden Prairie, Minnesota- 1 July, 2009. WAND Corporation is pleased to announce its 2009 Open House at its Global Headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. “We’ve created this event to invite our customers and prospective customers to see what the buzz is all about,” said WAND Corporation COO, Greg Perrill. Select, strategic partners from other Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) franchises will also be invited. The WAND Open House begins at 9 AM, 21 July, and members of the media are invited to RSVP for their opportunity to attend at (952) 361-6200.

Most recently, WAND Corporation has been working on the NextGen POS in partnership with Wendy’s, using the newest stable technologies to create the next generation in digital customer engagement. This applies to both indoor digital menu boards as well as outdoor units. Features like conversational ordering reduce the transaction time at the point of sale by up to 15 percent. This feature allows for fluid order imputing, fewer unnecessary voids, and greater customer satisfaction over not having been interrupted while placing their order. Best of all, the solution is designed to intelligently up-sell the customer with every transaction.

WAND Corporation has been providing point of sale software to the QSR space for nearly 20 years. In that time, WAND Corporation has also developed comprehensive back office and central office software and hardware to power and propel it into action. As technology has grown in versatility and strength at the same time as coming down in price, WAND Corporation identified the need for high-definition digital menu boards in the QSR and Fast Casual spheres.

WAND Corporation itself has also been experiencing sustained, positive growth. “In the last twelve months, doubled our global headquarters, and in so doing quadrupled our support department’s customer-handing capabilities” Perrill also said. He followed by saying, “We’re tremendously proud to have had the opportunity to serve many of the world-wide leaders in QSR, and in particular are immensely pleased at the role we’ve played in shaping the Future of QSR Technology. We may not be the largest POS provider in the world, but no one will find our passion for excellence, or products like ours, anywhere else in the world.”

Perrill closed by saying, “With so many developments coming out of WAND Corporation right now for the QSR community we serve, we wanted to bring everyone together to inform and share with them our successes, as well as listen directly and carefully to their needs and concerns. In a time of triumph like this, too, it seems appropriate to bring together the friends and partners that helped to bring matters to the favorable place we find ourselves celebrating now.”

The WAND Open House starts at 9 AM, 21 July. Once again, members of the media are invited to RSVP for their opportunity to attend at (952) 361-6200.
