DOVER, NJ, August 7, 2017 –Casio America, Inc., is proud to announce its new point-of-sale product offering, CasioCPos, a cloud-based solution for V-R7000/7100 Android terminals running Casio’s QSR application software. The V-R7000/ 7100 are Casio’s 15.6” wide screen touch screen, open-platform Android terminals, and the optional QSR application software is designed for the hospitality and general retail markets. Casio will demonstrate the V-R7000, QSR software and the new CasioCPos at the Retail Solutions Providers Association’s RetailNOW® show from August 7-8 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“When it comes to innovation in the point-of-sale space, Casio continues to develop creative solutions that enable business owners and management to run their operations more efficiently,” said Lawrence W. Sampey, General Manager of Casio’s Systems Products Division. “Our new cloud-based CasioCPos is the next iteration of our innovative offerings and we are so proud at the opportunity to demonstrate its capabilities this week at the RetailNow show.”

CasioCPos offers single and multi-store owners the ability to view real-time sales in order to evaluate and make instant operation decisions. A convenient dashboard provides a quick snapshot of sales, comparisons, number of customers, the average transaction total, while a bar chart shows the daily sales for the last week. Additionally, CasioCPos allows the input of a monthly sales projection and a status of where the store stands in achieving the target with an odometer-type graph and a graph chart. The dashboard also provides links to the sales analytic section of CasioCPos which includes additional reports including: item, department, group, hourly, hourly item, gross profit, transaction, day of week and other reports all with date range/historical capabilities.

Multi-location users will have access to multiple dashboards, complete with user restrictions. There are store, region and corporate level color-coded dashboards with access based on security levels. Since sales can be viewed through the V-R7000 terminal, remote PC or mobile phone, having a PC on site at each location is not required.

Other sections of CasioCPos include a diagnostic page with a communication log, electronic journal, and a terminal status indicator. A programming section allows changes to be made to the items, departments, groups, operators, employees, tax, keyboard layout and other areas. Program changes can be automatically downloaded to the store upon the store’s opening or sent directly from the cloud to the store. Owners of multi-locations can control programming by store, region or group of stores such as when programming specifics like prices or tax may vary.

The V-R7000 QSR application has built-in safe guards to ensure data is captured to CasioCPos. An open business operation prior to the start of each business day before transactions can be entered that syncs the terminal up with the cloud. A message box on the operator display indicates whether the terminal is either online or offline. During times when Internet access is unavailable, the V-R7000 QSR application will store transaction information until access resumes, at which point transaction information will be automatically sent to the cloud. All of these provisions provide a sense of security to store owners that their sales data is being handled properly and accurately.

CasioCPos will be available to Casio dealers starting August 7th. For additional information on Casio’s full portfolio of point-of-sale and electronic cash registers, please visit www.Casio.com.

TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2017 /CNW/ - As Canadians get back to school and routine, Subway® is looking to help them hold it all together with the launch of its new grilled wraps – a warm, portable meal that fits perfectly into everyone's busy fall schedules.

A new addition to the grilling platform Subway® launched this spring with paninis, three new grilled wraps are being introducing to their everyday menu offerings including the Chicken Cesar, Chicken & Bacon Ranch and the B.L.T.

According to a recent survey conducted by Maru Matchbox and Subway®, 60 per cent of Canadian millennials are looking for more quality meal options to take with them on the go, to help get them back to what they value most, including having more time to exercise (59 per cent); more time to travel and explore (51 per cent); more time with family (45 per cent); and more time with friends (40 per cent). As Canadians struggle to balance their hectic schedules, Subway® has partnered with organizational expert Clare Kumar during the launch of the new grilled wraps, to provide tips and advice on how to hold it all together in their busy lives.

"The new Subway® grilled wraps are a great addition to our grilling platform and our first one-handed sandwich option that allows Canadians to eat great on-the-go," says Cristina Wells, Subway Canada Senior Marketing Director. "The recent survey we conducted showed that millennials especially are looking to make better quality choices day-to-day but are struggling when they are busy. We think our new grilled wraps are the perfect solution."

The survey results also showed that when at their busiest, the majority of millennials place convenience as the highest priority when choosing a meal. Along with that, more than any other Canadian age group, millennials reported needing more creative ways to incorporate vegetables, exercise and other healthy choices into a busy schedule.

"September is a time when people get back to school and routine and life often gets busier than it has been in the summer months, so it is very convenient to have a new option for an on-the-go meal that doesn't compromise quality," says Clare Kumar, Organizing and Productivity Expert. "Holding it all together means something different for everyone in terms of priorities, so it is great that Subway® is adding even more variety to their menu, providing many options to meet the taste preferences and needs of their guests."

Available at participating restaurants across the nation, the new grilled wraps allow guests to choose from protein options including new slow-roasted and hand pulled rotisserie-style chicken, which is free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, and mouth-watering strips of bacon. All wraps come bursting with a selection of fresh veggies and sauces.

The exciting full lineup of grilled wraps includes three flavours:

Chicken Caesar: Combines rotisserie-style chicken with shredded Monterey Cheddar cheese, a sprinkle of Parmesan, baby spinach, tomatoes and Caesar sauce, wrapped in a soft tortilla and grilled to perfection.

Chicken & Bacon Ranch: Tender, rotisserie-style 100 per cent Canadian chicken free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives, wrapped in a tortilla, with mouth-watering bacon, shredded Monterey Cheddar cheese, red onions, green peppers, tomatoes and a creamy ranch sauce.

B.L.T.: Featuring strips of bacon and topped with lettuce, tomatoes and a drizzle of mayo.

The new grilled wraps are available across Canada as a permanent menu item. The lineup starts at $4.79 per wrap.

To celebrate the launch, Subway® is asking Canadian sandwich lovers across the country to show them on social media how they are #holdingitalltogether by following and tagging Subway® Canada's social channels at www.facebook.com/SubwayCanada and @SubwayCanada as they go about their busy lives with a grilled wrap in hand, for a chance to win prizes.

Several agencies are supporting the grilled wraps launch. Public relations and social media support is being handled by Veritas Communications. TV and digital advertising creative was produced by Sid Lee. All media buying was coordinated by Carat.
