Update 1.4 simplifies daily operations with improvements shaped by
conversations with hundreds of merchants and insights gained from more than 10
million menu items sold via Breadcrumb. Unlike users of outdated POS systems,
saddled with infrequent, costly and complex updates, Breadcrumb clientele
benefit from free, frequent and seamless upgrades.

Highlights of Breadcrumb 1.4 include:

Added Inventory Management

  *Enables seamless uploading of new and existing menu items and inventory
    counts to all Breadcrumb terminals
  *Displays how much is left of a specific menu item – ideal for venues with
    large but limited wine lists or daily fish specials
  *Facilitates easier tracking of food costs

Expanded Features for Delivery Businesses

  *Integrates Caller ID functionality without any additional hardware (Aloha
    and MICROS require extra $100 - $1000 device)
  *Faster phone order entry: automatically pulls up a customer’s address and
    saves in the system for future use
  *Empowers users to import/export customer data

Improved Tip Application and Monitoring

  *Prints recommended tip amounts on receipts
  *Permits venues to track declared server tips to aid with compliance
  *Adds an automatic gratuity based on party size

“Our venues never want to be in the awkward position of promising something to
a customer that they don’t have,” said Seth Harris, Founder, Breadcrumb.
“Among other important upgrades, Breadcrumb 1.4 displays what’s in stock in
real time, so operators can provide a better customer experience.”
