Denny's Startrak

Denny's Restaurants lacked inventory control in their restaurants. StarTrak was an effort to move from their system of no inventory and manual orders to a totally paperless, electronic inventory/ordering system.

 The system was actually very cool...

Sound complicated? It was, and it took over a year to write the first release. However, StarTrak saved the company over two million dollars (that's $2,000,000.00) the first year in reduced shrinkage.

The manager would be able to download the completed order back to the handheld, then use the device to scan items as they were unloaded from the truck. This would generate and Order Confirmation to improve billing accuracy.
