Eden Prairie, Minnesota- 15 October, 2008. WAND Corporation announced today their recent donation of $30,000 to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption at the annual Wendy’s Update meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, in September, 2008.
In collaboration with Panasonic, WAND auctioned an integrated POS system with 100% proceeds benefiting the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. WAND Corporation is an international leader in Quick Service Restaurant point of sale software, POS hardware supplier, and developer of digital menu board content.
The $35,000 generated will help the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption provide grants to adoption organizations working to find permanent, loving homes for children, and will provide educational awareness materials free of charge to persons requesting information.
Mr. John Perrill, Sr., WAND Corporation President and CEO, believes the decision to again donate is a pressing necessity in today’s world. “As a business that employs those who were children yesterday, and some whom are parents and grandparents today, we are part of an intricate community that needs to ensure the health and development of its future workers. With donations like the one just given, and the one in January, we are building the future, today”
The donated POS system will be installed in a Wendy’s franchise in the Bahamas. The software developed by WAND Corporation will increase service quality, while decreasing training time. The same software will also reduce theft and fraud by assigning detailed security rights to each employee and provide vital operation data to help prompt operators to take advantage of up-selling opportunities.
