Werner Enterprises Enhances Employee Convenience at Onsite Cafeteria with Cashless Payment Option

NAPERVILLE, Ill. --(Business Wire)--

ARBA Retail Systems, a leading provider of Point of Sale (POS) systems with cashless payment methods for retail, corporate and healthcare industries, announced that Werner Enterprises in Omaha, Nebraska has selected and implemented the ARBAPRO Café POS system.

Werner Enterprises, a premier transportation and logistics company, was looking for a Point of Sale system which would allow employees to make cash and cashless purchases of food and beverages in the company cafeteria. Enhanced convenience for Werner employees was an important benefit the new system needed to provide, as well as improved financial accountability for informed decision making, and increased revenue and cost control.

Employee Payroll Deduction Transactions

Werner Enterprises required a system that would allow office associates and drivers to pay for their cafeteria purchases by scanning their employee badge for automatic deductions from future paychecks. To accomplish this, ARBAPO software was customized to interact with Werner's POS web services for authentication, credit availability inquiries, and payroll deduction transactions. "Payroll deductions have already played a significant role in increasing cafeteria sales since the system went live," says Jodi Winther, Senior Accountant at Werner. Executive Vice President of Finance, Jim Johnson, is very pleased with the amount of payroll deduction transactions now being done. Payroll deductions have increased cafeteria sales by 25%.

ARBA software products are developed on the Microsoft .NET (News - Alert) SQL solution framework with a POS database running SQL 2008.

Financial Control and Reporting

ARBAPRO Café provides the Werner management team with a suite of sales and financial reports for informed financial decisions. They now have visibility into how food and beverage items are performing, and are beginning to record and track food costs for informed re-pricing decisions based on profit or loss margins.

New Point of Sale System

Werner Enterprises replaced their existing cash registers with all-in-one touch screen terminals running ARBAPRO Café POS software by ARBA Retail Systems. Menus screens were tailored to present the cafeteria's menus and rotations. The cafeteria sells a wide variety of bar coded convenience items, which are captured in inventory and scanned at the point of sale.
