Yonghe King, a Chinese quick-service restaurant chain and subsidiary of the Jollibee Foods Corporation, wanted better support for rapid business growth. To ease problems brought on by expansion, the company implemented a point-of-sale (POS) system from Partner
Tech Shanghai Company based on Microsoft technology that connects hundreds of POS devices running Windows Embedded to a corporate network based on Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server. Better access to business intelligence (BI) data helps busy executives
make better decisions. In addition, since implementing the centralized solution in 2011, the company has halved the time it takes to open new stores and expects to save approximately CNY¥800,000 (US$130,000) annually. The familiar interface also improves efficiency
for sales staff, who, as a result, deliver better customer service.
