In the framework of a long-term partnership, Tillypad has assisted the ‘Frikadelki’ restaurant chain in implementing the corporate service solutions based on the Tillypad XL hospitality management system.
Tillypad and the ‘Frikadelki’ restaurant chain have been partners for more than eight years. The modern restaurants of the ‘Frikadelki’ chain, affordable for everyone, with high-quality cuisine and a delicatessen department, are very popular in St. Petersburg. Nowadays the chain is entering a new area of business: corporate food service. Enterprises in which this service is available to employees can apply different payment systems to deal with public catering services.
It is worth noting that one of Frikadelki’s partners is the St. Petersburg subsidiary of a well-known IT laboratory, the leading company in developing antivirus software. For this company, the only convenient way of paying for employees' meals is to transfer daily allowances to a special card. These transferred funds are saved on the card and are available on a monthly basis. Then, on the first day of the next month, the employee’s account is cleared. This was the procedure offered by the company to pay for corporate food services in the ‘Frikadelki’ restaurant chain.
Tillypad XL hospitality management system has all the necessary options to implement these solutions. That’s why Tillypad specialists have assisted the ‘Frikadelki’ restaurant chain in adjusting the system to such a payment scheme. The system has been precisely customized to meet the customer's requirements, i.e. Tillypad XL keeps count of all transfers and cash balances, then clears accounts – even for those days when employees did not go to the canteen because of sick leave, vacation or absence due to other circumstances.
Moreover, Tillypad XL makes it possible to customize the system to meet all customer requirements. For example, the system enables editing of the amount of allowance and lets the customer change the date for clearing saved money.
Elena Klimenko, CFO of the ‘Frikadelki’ restaurant chain, commented: “Over a long period of cooperation we became convinced of the advantages of operating the Tillypad XL system. It meets all our emerging demands and helps to promote our chain as a provider of corporate food service. Now we can customize Tillypad XL to accommodate a wide range of payment requirements, without limiting our customers in terms of selecting a scheme to pay for meals.”
