  • One nutritional console for the culinary team to evaluate menu item nutritionals, perform recipe modeling, and manage one online recipe book.
  • One operational analysis console for the leadership team, with all key performance metrics aggregated onto one master scorecard, and drill-down to each region, restaurant, transaction, and manager.
  • One standard to centralize and protect the brand by ensuring operational standards, from recipe prep to scheduling practices, are upheld throughout corporate, franchise and global locations.

ConneX is Seamless Integration

Point-of-Sale (POS) cloud integration is more important to restaurants than ever. With over 1-million guest checks being processed each day, ConneX, our cloud-based POS integration tool, is just getting started.  ConneX is designed to seamlessly pass information between your POS and our CrunchTime back office platform. ConneX works with both cloud-based POS systems (like Brink, Task Retail, or Toast) and locally hosted POS systems (such as NCR Aloha, Oracle Micros, or Positouch).

    • Cloud POS Systems: For cloud-based POS systems ConneX relies on that system’s APIs to request and push data (no local software is required).
    • Local POS Systems: Locally hosted POS systems use a ConneX client running on the POS server to mediate between the ConneX cloud and the POS.

Using ConneX means that you have more flexibility and control and aren’t dependent on 3rd party developers to maintain the interface.
