Restaurant Tech Provider Vivid Adds POS Offering

Vivid, a provider of software for running restaurants and processing payments, has announced a new product called Vivid POS, a smart-device point-of-sale (POS) system for use with devices that run mobile operating systems, according to a Monday (June 27) press release.

Sausalito, California-based Vivid stated in the release that Vivid POS, which integrates with a cloud-based platform, runs on Apple’s iOS operating system and Google’s Android operating system.

The Vivid POS is aimed at small- to medium-sized restaurants “to serve customers exactly, where, when and how they want,” according to the release. That can include mobile, online and table-side transactions.

“Our goal is to challenge the industry’s established players, and Vivid’s flexible solution empowers restaurants to start small and scale, and to select the best-of-breed solution components that ideally suit their business,” said Vivid Co-Founder and CEO Derek Henmi in the release.

Henmi said Vivid’s offerings are “customized” for each restaurant that signs on, per the release.

Vivid’s platform also supports gift card and customer loyalty programs, as well as order ticketing to kitchens and interactions with third-party delivery apps, the release stated.

The company also integrates hardware, such as cash drawers and receipt printers, so it can provide what it called in the release a “one-vendor solution.” Hardware providers include Advanced Mobile Payment (AMP) and Poynt.

On its website, Vivid stated that business categories it caters to include: full-service restaurants; fast casual restaurants; bars and nightclubs; enterprises and retail point-of-sale.
