Network Management Solution


Is your POS Network Secure and PCI Compliant?

Are Credit Card transactions separate from Wi-Fi traffic?

Who is Monitoring and Maintaining Your Network?

Has your Network  Hub turned into a Rat’s Nest?

What Happens when your Internet Connection Fails?



Need a Restaurant Network Management Solution so you can be a restaurateur instead of an IT guru?

Every Restaurant Owner and Manager Knows they Must be PCI Compliant! But what does the network include?  What started out as a simple Internet connection for processing credit cards is now a network of devices that include:

  • Back-office PC for Email and Internet Access
  • POS System with Credit Card Processing
  • Smartphone Mobile Payment Devices
  • iPad Server Order Entry Terminals
  • Phone System using Voice over IP
  • Surveillance Camera System
  • Customer Online Ordering
  • Refrigeration Monitoring
  • Security Alarm System
  • Digital Menu Boards
  • Customer Wi-Fi
  • Digital Signage
  • Video Games
  • Jukebox
  • ATM

OK you know you need a secure and PCI compliant network, but what does that mean?

The restaurant network management solution must provide the following:

  • Password Protected Firewall
  • Password Protected Network Access
  • Separate Public and Private Wi-Fi Networks
  • PCI-DSS Compliant Certified Point of Sale Software

Who can handle this if you are not a PC guru?  A properly trained and certified 24/7 managed network security company that is knowledgeable in PCI-DSS requirements for restaurants.  For a complete list of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards requirements for a restaurant network management just click here.

But what happens when your Internet connection fails on a busy night?  Is your staff prepared with hand-operated credit card machines (knuckle-busters)?  Are these manual transactions authorized and processed after the customer has left?  What about phony cards and charge-backs for these transactions?  What about the charged tip on these transactions?

The Hearland SmartLink restaurant network management solution can also include cost-effective broadband Cellular Backup in case your DSL or cable modem fails.  For a Free Audit of Your Current Network call 1-866-827-9169 or for email access to schedule your free network audit just click here.
