The History of CARDWATCH POS

CARDWATCH has served its clients for more than 25 years. We first started serving the cash register market in 1983 as The Retail Systems Group. By 1988, CARDWATCH became an industry leader in the development of Open Platform POS software, with a mission to provide state-of-the-art technology that reduced operating costs, improved the customer experience, and broke speed records for transaction time and customer throughput. In 1990, CARDWATCH™ was born as a real-time Spending Management solution, designed to manage meal allocation at the University of Toronto (still a customer to this day).

Our CARDWATCH™ suite of applications has evolved to become one of North America’s most advanced Privilege & Spending Management tools on the market. Today, we are the popular choice for One Card solutions with senior living communities and healthcare institutions.

Servoy was founded because developing great business applications is too hard, too time consuming, too frustrating and too expensive. Our founders had extensive experience in developing complex business applications such as ERPs in the era before the Internet, using the RAD and 4GL platforms popular at the time. As the Internet came along and our customers started asking for their apps to run on the web, we turned to Java and .Net.

That was a very frustrating experience after coming from RAD and 4GL tools. Instead of being productive instantly, the entire stack (all the non-functionals) had to be built from scratch. And thus the idea for Servoy was born.

Strategic Dining Services is committed to change dining services in retirement industry into a dining experience with a hospitality style that residents boast about, employees are engaged in and owners benefit through increased NOI.

Most companies in the retirement industry focus their resources in sales training, state regulation compliance preparation and human resource related topics. The community’s dining service team typically receives training and support from purveyors or a food management company, who are not focused on community success goals but rather on their own company compliance and basic standards, which they apply to all of their customers. The area of dining services is the largest operational expense and arguably the largest impact on resident satisfaction for the community. Most often, training in creating a quality dining experience through food preparation techniques, kitchen efficiencies, plate presentation and service standards are a low priority or left undone.
