The Point of Success Ticket Monitor features are part of the Order Entry program. No proprietary kitchen display hardware is required; this feature runs on a standard networked computer. You may only run one copy of Order Entry per computer. The purchase of additional licenses may be required for each computer running Kitchen or Expediter Monitors. Please call 800-752-3565 for pricing.
Also called a UPS or battery backup, for each computer, then connect computers, printers, displays and network equipment to the battery-protected outlets. A UPS protects against damage caused by power fluctuations and power failures
Copy backup data onto removable media or use an online backup service every day. When you have a data backup you can quickly restore good data to fix database damage or replace a failed database server computer by moving the database to another computer on your network. A quality NAS storage device with cloud storage is recommended. Western Digital, Synology, and TerraMaster offer such devices.
Additionally, using a RAID SSD system that provides storage redundancy on the database server computer can prevent a full SSD failure, giving you time to fix a drive problem.
