Food Services of America customers are going to be very happy with this new program and all that it offers.”
Hans Schatz, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for Food Services of America had this to say about the new relationship, “After looking at several other Point of Sale companies, we decided on Khamu Solutions and its software, Sapphire, because we wanted to offer our customers a company and product that we knew would allow the customer to save money and superior service.”
Steve Ballard, Proprietor of The Sonora Grill in Ogden, Utah, and a customer of both companies states, "We decided on using Sapphire because of the price point and a set of features that it offers, allowing us to manage our restaurant on-site or remotely, which provides for higher accountability and contributes to a much quicker ROI.” Steve Ballard goes on to add, “Food Services of America and Khamu Solutions are a good fit, as both companies are easy to work with and offer a high level of customer service".
First sold in 2002, Sapphire software and its family of products continue to provide a robust Point of Sale solution that is cost efficient while offering additional features specifically for restaurants, hospitals, stadiums and other sporting venues, nationwide. Sapphire's pricing is economical due to its state-of-the-art infrastructure that allows for less hardware than competing solutions. Sapphire’s standard version includes additional advanced tools such as remote access over the Internet, inventory management, gift cards, and loyalty accounts, which are typically upgrades in other Point of Sale systems.
