Menusoft Systems and Socket Mobile Bring Handheld Point-of-Sale to the Table

Digital Dining System Increases Overall Restaurant Performance and Streamlines Tableside Ordering and Payment Processing

NEWARK, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), an innovative provider of mobile productivity solutions, today announced that Menusoft Systems Corporation, developers of the Digital Dining restaurant management and Point-of-Sale (POS) software system, have selected the Socket SoMo 650 handheld computer as one of their recommended devices for use with their Handheld POS solution.

"The Digital Dining and Socket Mobile solution puts all the features of the standard terminal right into the palm of your hand," said Darius Mahallati, president of Grazie! Grille, an Italian American restaurant in Brentwood, Calif. "Our speed of service has increased because our servers are able to take and send orders, answer questions about menu items, and process credit card payments without ever having to leave the customer's table."

"The environment of the food service business is extremely abusive and there aren't a lot of devices out there that are convenient to use and at the same time made to withstand the inherent harshness of the industry," said Andre Nataf, Sr. business development manager of Menusoft. "The SoMo is unique in that its size and slim configuration make it a truly portable device, and accessories like the DuraCase protective case and the wrist strap ensure that it's 'restaurant-rugged.'"

"We're thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Menusoft and their Digital Dining resellers to offer mobile computing options to the hospitality industry," said Dave Bledsoe, Sr. product manager of handheld computing products at Socket Mobile. "The SoMo 650 makes implementing a handheld Point-of-Sale solution affordable for any size establishment, giving restaurants with as few as four to five wait staff the opportunity to benefit from the investment in tableside ordering and payment processing technology."
