HAYWARD, CALIF. MAY 18, 2017
Omnivore, the cloud-based universal API that closes the gap between restaurants, developers and suppliers, announced a new strategic partnership with Pinnacle Hospitality Systems (Pinnacle), one of the top POSitouch dealers in the country. The move represents yet another critical step in Omnivore’s ongoing quest to revolutionize the worlds of restaurants and hospitality by seamlessly facilitating connections to POS systems through a single integration API.
"The new partnership with Pinnacle will help provide new insight into operations for POSitouch restaurant operators, and ultimately better value to their customers," said Omnivore CEO and Co-Founder Mike Wior. "Pinnacle will gain access to third party technology apps—everything from delivery, reservations and payment to loyalty and gifting applications—all through a single integration point with Omnivore. Our partnership opens immense new opportunity to drive customer engagements and to increase revenue potential as a result."
What sets Omnivore apart is its ability to universally communicate with all technology systems engaged in a restaurant’s operations. Before Wior and Omnivore Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Mike Taczak, introduced their product to the market, options were limited and often exclusive. Because certain apps couldn’t integrate with others, developers were often left with no other option but to employ multiple APIs to produce the desired outcome. With Omnivore, developers only have to build a single interface and the functionality is normalized across multiple POS systems. The end result is an application that can easily communicate with a restaurant, giving the user complete access to every action and detail of the point-of-sale system.
“Our proven universal API allows restaurants to realize significant savings by presenting them with technology solutions many didn’t even know were possible,” said Wior. “Partnering with Pinnacle is the latest step in our mission to shift thinking across the restaurant technology landscape. We look forward to the opportunity to grow to the next level together.”
Since its inception, Pinnacle has specialized in restaurant POS systems to fit any size restaurant or budget, restaurant credit card processing systems that integrate with a restaurant’s POS software, restaurant loyalty cards to help target the right customers with the right incentives and restaurant surveillance to help protect profits. Pinnacle was the first dealer to install a touchscreen POS system in Florida.
With the Omnivore App Marketplace, Pinnacle will now have access to numerous third party restaurant technologies including reservations, delivery, online ordering and more. Through this new partnership, Pinnacle is also offering PayMyTab—its newest payment app partner—to all of its clients by tapping into Omnivore’s API for seamless integration. PayMyTab's mobile app and pay at the table EMV devices give restaurants simplicity and security while paying and a complete Guest CRM and Loyalty platform.
“We’re thrilled to join with Omnivore to continue to advance what’s possible in the POS space,” said Pinnacle CEO Don Potter. “Through this collaboration, we’re able to extend our POS platform by facilitating additional functionality that will enhance ROI as well as provide accessibility to apps that give businesses a competitive advantage. We’re excited to further enhance our POS systems and bring even more value to our restaurant partners.”
Revolutionizing the worlds of hospitality and retail, Omnivore connects a retailer’s point-of-sale (POS) with new technologies, driving engagement through the full lifecycle of the consumer experience. Omnivore’s cloud-based platform enables a single integration through their API, seamlessly facilitating the connections to POS systems now and into the future. The platform helps restaurants discover apps for payment, reservations, delivery, loyalty, analytics and more to connect with millions of consumers around the world. Omnivore enables access to real-time, quality consumer level point of purchase intelligence. Located in the San Francisco Bay area, Omnivore is a privately held company.
