“Independent and small chain restaurants demand the same rugged POS as larger chain restaurants, but typically have limited budgets,” said Scott Langdoc, CTO, ParTech. “We designed the EverServ 500 POS terminal to address the specific needs of this segment. The 500 has the same rugged durable design PAR is known for and is available in one fixed configuration. Configuration simplicity allows restaurant operators to obtain a high quality PAR POS terminal at a competitive price.”

“We installed the new EverServ 500 POS terminal six weeks ago and it has been fantastic with no issues at all,” said Alfie Risavy, Director of Operations, Alfie’s Restaurant and Lounge. “The speed and performance of the EverServ 500 has been impressive.”

“The PAR EverServ 500 offers hospitality and retail companies an excellent entry-level solution with the benefits of the Windows Embedded platform and PAR’s innovative POS hardware,” said Cuong Pham, product manager for Windows Embedded at Microsoft. “The EverServ 500 provides a new hardware option for companies to build intelligent systems that realize the value of sharing and analyzing data across multiple devices and the cloud while providing durable hardware for high-traffic environments.”

Key Features

The EverServ 500 is built to last in the harsh hospitality and retail environments where POS terminals are subjected to abusive conditions, vibrations and liquid spills. The key features of the EverServ 500 include:

  • Performance – The EverServ 500 features an 2nd Generation Intel® Atom™ 1.86 GHz dual core processor (Cedar Trail Architecture), 2 GB DDR3 memory and a 320 GB hard disk with support for Windows Embedded POSReady 7, Windows 7 Professional for Embedded Systems and Windows 7 Professional.
  • Durable and Reliable – Shock mounted hard disk, spill resistant casework and sealed touch screen provide real-life environmental protection and long-life.
  • Fan-less Design – Quiet fan-less design requires less power and doesn’t bring grease and contaminants into the terminal.
  • Compact Footprint – The small footprint and easy cable routing to the POS, top of the counter and under the counter connections keep the POS environment clutter free and frees up counter space.
  • Low Total Cost of Ownership – Advanced energy saving features like the auto-standby mode and fan-less design dramatically reduce overall power consumption. The durable and reliable design extends the life and terminal and lowers the total cost of ownership.
