Vancouver, BC, Canada — Squirrel Systems, a leading technology provider to the hospitality industry, announced today the unveiling of the Squirrel Cloud at the National Restaurant Industry’s annual show. Built on 35 years of innovation in hospitality technology, this next generation Cloud POS is designed to help restaurants win in this new time of rapid technology adoption within the industry.

The Squirrel Cloud continues a long commitment to flexibility in guest experience design for hospitality venues. Customers can select from hospitality-grade Squirrel terminals such as the new WS150 series, iOS, Windows or Android tablets providing them the widest choice of hardware in the industry.

Built on Microsoft Azure, Squirrel Cloud brings state of the art cloud infrastructure to the restaurant POS market. Rather than trusting operations to consumer grade computers on site at the restaurant or custom hosting infrastructure operated by POS vendors, restaurants of all sizes can now use the same cloud platform trusted by 95% of the Fortune 500.

“In Squirrel’s history, our software platform has been re-invented on several occasions to take advantage of new technology and continually provide our customers a modern platform to run their restaurants,” said Jason Leeson, President of Squirrel Systems. “Squirrel Cloud is our most ambitious technology evolution to date, driven by input from our most innovative customers and partners. We are very excited to see several years of R&D work reach the market.”

The Squirrel Cloud POS is now available as an early access program to both counter service and table service restaurant customers. Customers who qualify for the early access program will have the opportunity to refresh their restaurant operation with new POS hardware and installation offered free of charge. For more details on qualifying for the program and its benefits visit the Squirrel Cloud POS early access program web site or visit Squirrel at booth #6457 at NRA May 18-21st in Chicago.
