Splashtop and CostGuard Partner to Deliver CG-Cloud iPad App to Enable Remote Access of Leading Restaurant, Hotel and Food Management Software
Hospitality and Food Service Industries Can Instantly Mobilize The Existing Windows-Based Solutions They Depend On
SAN JOSE, Calif. —April 2, 2013 — Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing and collaboration, announces partnership with CostGuard Food Costing Software to deliver CG-Cloud app for the iPad. By empowering thousands of hotels, restaurants, retail and institutional foodservice operations with remote access to CostGuard’s Windows based software, users have instant access to data from anywhere at anytime, including inventory, sales data, POS, account systems, etc.
Traditionally, foodservice software requires a numeric keypad, which isn’t available on mobile tablets, but CG-Cloud’s provides a transparent overlay of a customized numeric keypad for easy data input.
CG-Cloud improves efficiencies with real-time business insights, including:
- Count Sheets: Employees can enter data directly into the software from the floor. No need to print, write and then re-enter data.
- Invoices: Provides instant confirmation of pricing, quantities, and substitutions the moment they are received.
- Latency Challenges: All data entered on the iPad is directly entered into the CostGuard database– No latency and data is always up to date
CG-Cloud brings together the mobilization of the workforce with IT efficiency. By securely streaming the CostGuard desktop application, employees are working on software they know, leaving no learning curve, and IT can easily manage all devices from a single console.
“Mobile devices are transforming the foodservice and retail industries,” said Mark Lee, CEO and founder of Splashtop. “We are excited to partner with CostGuard to mobilize the existing solution that thousands of businesses already rely on everyday and help innovate operations for a more efficient workforce.”
“Many customers have asked for mobile use of CostGuard and by partnering with Splashtop, we have successfully mobilized our existing foodservice software onto iPads for all our customers, enhancing productivity and satisfaction,” said Matthew Starobin, President of CostGuard.
Porting and re-developing existing Windows applications to mobile devices is difficult, expensive, and businesses are often faced with compatibility and training challenges. Splashtop works with partners in different industries to private label and customize its Splashtop mobilization platform, as a fast, effective way to mobilize existing Windows applications.
CostGuard delivers software for restaurant management (independent and multi-unit), retail and production kitchens, hotels and banquet halls, casinos, caterers, bakeries, delis, corporate, commissaries and institutional foodservice.
