The future the way we imagine it to be!

A vast usage of the mobile technologies
Today’s world is dynamic and interesting. One of its most compelling features is the possibility to travel, to work, to control and manage remotely. Naturally, this has its base – mobile devices and universal Internet connectivity. The world is evolving and consumers rely on connectivity anywhere, anytime. Can you imagine today’s world without cell phones or Internet for even five minutes? Would you write a postcard, letter or telegram? No and most probably you have never done that. That is why the future is bond to mobile technology, usage of small and convenient devices and universal connectivity. More and more tasks will require mobile devices and they are going to take over the world. For that reason Microinvest works in that direction. We constantly develop new techniques and software in this area. We strongly believe that Windows 8 RT and Windows Phone will be an important part of the future. Unlike Android, these systems have an underlying business component, which puts them in the future business, assisting the users. We will leave the Androids and iPhones to the models and sports people (for images, videos, etc.) and will focus on the business users (graphs, reports, documents and analyzes) and the most appropriate for this system – Windows Phone.

The many faces of Microinvest eMenu Pro

Just an ordinary day and an extraordinary idea! This was the beginning of Microinvest eMenu Pro. The product’s excellent implementation as a modern instrument for both waiters and clients followed shortly. But what else can we expect from this product? For all of the beginners we will present and summarize it’s functionality.

1. Electronic menu in the waiter’s hands, which is used for remote orders in restaurants and cafes.

2. Electronic menu on the clients’ table, which is used for remote orders in restaurants and cafes without the need of a waiter. The client orders by himself.

3. An instrument for retailers in the trade hall, mobile retailers, who follow the client everywhere and prepare the order together. Irreplaceable for large halls.

4. As a variation of Microinvest Digital Board, Microinvest eMenu Pro is an excellent choice for creating a vivid and dynamic environment in a restaurant and showing the dishes on large screens.

Microinvest Digital Board can be incorporated into a website in order to promote the products. Prices, promotions and other details are updated automatically. The settings are the same as in a local network, as long as the URL address of the presentation is published online. And now for the news – Microinvest eMenu Pro has become an instrument for graphical analysis and remote control. A new variety, called Micrionvest Statistics, visualizes over 30 graphical references  for mobile phones and tablets and is a part of Microinvest eMenu Pro’s main package!

Digital Board – extension for Microinvest eMenu Pro

On December 15th a new function of Microinvest eMenu Pro launches – Digital Board.

Digital Boards are big screens, which you have certainly seen over cashier’s stands in Fast-Food Restaurants. They continuously broadcast advertisings or information on goods, which are directed to clients. Often on such screens Daily Menus, goods, promotions, etc., are displayed.

Digital Board represents an additional way to attract clients and to advertise your business.

Key features of Digital Board:

  • Simultaneous, parallel presentation (for example, presentation for Business-lunch, presentation for a certain item, promotions, etc.).
  • An ability to make 5 different presentations and launch them on 5 displays, as each presentation has its own web-address.
  • Stand-alone submission of information.
  • Changing the price of a product in the main program will result in an automatic change of the price in the presentation. However, changing the price of the product in the process of editing the presentations will not lead to a change in the price in the main program.
  • Simple installations, taking into account the needs and wishes of the client.
  • Digital Board from Microinvest isn’t a separate product, which requires payment. It is a FREE function for Microinvest eMenu Pro users. We went away from Eastern European countries’ practice, where such programs are available as stand-alone products and their prices are up to 10 000 Euro, with subsequent changes and revises that cost as much as a new car.
  • Product looks like a presentation. The client only chooses a template, effects and the information he wants to upload.
  • Multi-purpose usage. If you launch Digital Board on a tablet – the application will work as Microinvest eMenu Pro. If you launch it on a big screen – you have an advertisement over the cash-desk ready to go. Also, the presentation can be launched in the form of a web site. Everything is in your hands!
  • Simple, flexible kind of connection – benefits of Digital Board for a faster selling of products.

Microinvest eMenu Pro is constantly evolving. This means that the quantity of templates and colors in Digital Board will increase. Having acquired some experience, you can independently place pictures in the presentations and alter the locations of the screens.

From now on you have a free tool for powerful advertising, so use it!

On the other side, all of the partners know that they can rely on a responsible European company and are not alone when implementing the products.

The most attractive price – quality ratio  

There are numerous products with variable functions, others with competitive prices, but only Microinvest succeeds at offering such a wide variety of functionalities in one program only, with reasonable price and ongoing development. The combination of opportunities and competitive price presents Microinvest with undeniable advantage in relation to its competitors.

Implemented help system and easy introduction with the products

Each Microinvest product possesses a standard help system that can be activated with F1. By pressing F1, the customer will receive a full description of the presently active module. This will ensure the fast and unimpeded study of the product and an immediate checkup for available opportunities.

A combined solution for a store and a restaurant

Microinvest provides a uniform solution for a store and a restaurant. It is not necessary anymore to have an individual product for a store, another system for a restaurant, a third one for a supermarket, a forth one for a caf?, a fifth one for a sauna, etc. When the specialists are studying the opportunities that Microinvest provides, they can automate everything with the help of only one product. This product makes the work of the specialist very easy and it does not require studying and supporting of 5 to 10 different systems!

The most powerful system for discounts

The difference is in the management. And when all people can make salads and provide beverages and alcohol, something else is unique and very important for the work and the success of a company. Microinvest possesses the most powerful system for defining and managing trade discounts. Now, managers can make the rules, set individual rates, use lunch menus and personal cards. All of this is a part of the standard version of the product. It is not necessary to buy other expensive modules.

Comfort during work

A structured program, a balanced and a nice interface, a strict following of the main computer principles and a great graphic design guarantee a comfort during the work of the operator, a fast orientation in the programs and a lack of bothering questions as: “How to do this or that?”. The clients and the service specialists are happy from the lack of mistaken menus, complex screens and continuing clicking with the mouse on thousand different options.

All drivers are installed and there is no need of additional software

There are existing systems, which continuously require the purchase of additional modules. When you add a new printer, change the model of the electronic scale or add discount cards, the clients, the specialists and the owners are required to pay for the additional drivers, additional programs and have additional costs.  All of this is removed in the products of Microinvest. One program contains everything; the drivers are installed, without any hidden costs for the drivers or for any helpful modules.

Opportunity for working in a demonstration mode

Do you know the phrase “to buy a cat in a bag”? Most of the products require a payment for the licenses in the beginning and only then the clients meet the functional opportunities.  According to the market policy of Microinvest the clients can test the software and only then to buy the system.  The service specialists can benefit more. They can install the whole system and to set it without any license keys. Only then, if the clients agree they can buy and install the license codes. In this way the clients pay only when they are sure what the software characteristics are.

The Italian IT giant Zucchetti comes to Bulgaria

The Italian software group Zucchetti, which is the fourth largest IT company in Europe, significantly extended it global positions by incorporating the software house Microarea. Microarea is also headquartered in Italy, developing management software for small and medium sized enterprises. The company also has well – established connections in Eastern Europe. The unification of the two software companies allows Zucchetti to enter the Bulgarian market.

“With 44 000 clients, the Zucchetti software solutions are the most popular in Italy”, said Giorgio Mini, vice president of Zucchetti, “On the global market, our desire is to emphasize on Mago.Net, which is the Microarea ERP solution. The product is well known across the Italian borders. The popularity of the system is achieved thanks to the formed qualified network of business partners, developing along with Microarea during the years.”

The integration of Mago.Net with other products of Zucchetti will be a significant step forward in the quality of the offered management solutions for the Bulgarian users. For example, the modern business software solutions in Bulgaria are planned for the end of June, when the market debut of Info Business – the Business Intelligence solution of Zucchetti, will take place.

“Info Business is an easy-to-use and very intuitive solution. This is one helpful tool for the management of every company. The possibility to create complex analyses of data, extracted from the ERP system, and to accomplish detailed statistical reports is surely a crucial advantage for the Bulgarian companies, both for improvement of the strategic decisions and for increasing their competitive advantage” – said the trade coordinator of global markets in Zucchetti – Reka Ujj.

The Bulgarian version of the product, as well as its integration with Mago.Net, will be accomplished until the end of this month. Further information related to the capabilities of the system is available from one of the leading partner of the Italian companies in Bulgaria – Microinvest, as well as on www.mago.bg.
