Leapset introduces ROS
The Restaurant Operating System (ROS) is the future of the restaurant
industry, said Leapset, CEO Mani Kulasooriya.
He said that Leapset, the Silicon Valley based technology company,
envisions a future where all restaurants are augmented and improved
through technology. The Leapset ROS distributed exclusively in the
United States, from its Silicon Valley head office in Redwood City,
California, through the sales network of Leapset's parent company Sysco.
The US restaurant industry employs 13.5 million people, the second
largest in terms of employment numbers. The industry has an annual
revenue of US $ 660 billion and serves 130 million Americans daily
through one million restaurants.
However, the industry has been traditionally slow to adopt new
technology. This has created the opportunity for a disruptive innovator
like Leapset to change the technology landscape around restaurants,
according to Kulasooriya.
The market is highly fragmented with most companies focusing on a
single area of the merchant-consumer interaction like online ordering,
point of sale (POS) or reservations.
However, Leapset's approach is revolutionising the industry by
enhancing all these restaurant-customer interactions with a single
consolidated platform, he said.
Leapset, a subsidiary of Sysco, is poised to capture the US
restaurant market. Sysco has the monopoly of the food services business
with 193 companies serving 425,000 customers daily through its sales
force of over 6,500, he said.
