The Largest Pizza Chain in the Netherlands Chooses Andromeda

LONDON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 26, 2007 -- New York Pizza, the leading Pizza Chain in the Netherlands, has selected Andromeda to provide its Rameses EPOS system, for all of its sites across the Netherlands.

New York Pizza (NYPD) is the most successful pizza chain in the Netherlands. Headquartered in Amsterdam, the company has an estate of over 75 delivery and takeaway stores, plus 5 slice stores in high footfall tourist areas. The chain has also recently won a contract to provide pizza slices to hungry commuters in several mainline railway stations, replacing Pizza Hut.

The company had been researching the market for a replacement POS provider, to replace the aging system which has been in use for many years. NYPD has evaluated systems from the US, UK & Europe, before selecting Andromeda's Rameses system for the roll out to its estate.

NYPD's Managing Director Bart Jan Wijsman commented:

"We have aggressive expansion plans and needed to find a system which would help us to achieve our objectives.

"We have spent over a year carefully evaluating companies and visiting sites throughout Europe which had these systems installed, before deciding upon Andromeda.

"We visited several of Andromeda's customers in the UK, including Papa John's Pizza and Famous Moe's. We were reassured by the fact that Andromeda had a lot of experience in rolling out a system into a large group of stores and would be able to install into all of our stores in a relatively short period with a minimum of disruption. They have the systems and procedures in place for pre-installation training of store staff, installation in the store followed by onsite training and then ongoing support after the installation is handed over.

"The company is very professional and is extremely practical, due to the pizza background of its management. We have had several exchange visits with their technical people and by using the dedicated NYPD SharePoint site provided by Andromeda, we can all request and monitor progress on development requirements, such as integration with our website."

Ben Portsmouth, CEO of Andromeda, commented, "We are very pleased to be working with New York Pizza, and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship. This roll out underlines Andromeda's commitment to the EPOS market in Europe."

Andromeda, with headquarters in London & Dallas, is Europe's leading delivery EPOS provider. Andromeda's award-winning Rameses delivery POS software is suitable for delivery, counter service and restaurant operators, including Papa John's Pizza, Bombay Bicycle Club, Itsu Sushi, Lupa and many more successful companies. They can supply single operators up to large international chains. Additional services include fully integrated website ordering, ACE call handling system, credit card processing in under two seconds, automatic text messages to customers when their food leaves the store and a sophisticated loyalty card scheme.
