CHICAGO – May 18, 2019Elo, a leading global supplier of interactive technology solutions, today announced their robust Android–powered self–service, kitchen display and POS terminal solutions are to be showcased at the 2019 Restaurant Show in Chicago. Elo's Android–based solutions help restaurants worldwide modernize and align each touchpoint to enhance the customer experience, while simplifying deployment, management and security of in–store systems. In this mobile–first world, Elo is equipping restaurants with a unified architecture – built on a mobile OS – that allows them to choose, configure, connect and control their Android–powered devices to create a bespoke experience.

Elo's leadership in Android-based solutions is backed by a network of more than 50 independent software vendors. The company's commercially focused software development kit enables customers and partners to develop a single software image or app to be deployed across Elo's full line of Android–based products. This further cements Elo’s ability to offer a unified platform for businesses.

Elo's restaurant customers demand a unified approach in creating employee and customer experiences across a variety of applications, like point–of–sale, self–service or kitchen display systems, said Dan Ludwick, executive vice president, products and technology, Elo. Our explosive growth in Elo Android–based device shipments over the past four years is indicative of our leadership in Android. Through this expertise, Elo allows customers to create a secure and curated experience with touchpoint configuration freedom, mix–and–match systems, and homogeneous environment manageability.
