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
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

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?
