Panasonic Announces Stingray Envo POS Workstation is Certified by CKE Restaurants

Latest Point-of-Sale Solution Offers CKE Franchises Versatile Installation Options and High Performance Functionality

SECAUCUS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Panasonic today announced that its Stingray Envo POS workstation (JS-960) is now certified by CKE Restaurants and will be on display at the upcoming Independent Hardee's® Franchisee Association (IHFA) conference. Panasonic’s Stingray Envo has met the rigorous certification standards set forth by CKE and is now approved for use by Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s franchises across the nation. Panasonic’s Envo saves restaurants both time and money with a modular design that enables self-service and mounting flexibility.

“At CKE, we look for POS workstations that offer our franchises a variety of capabilities to improve operations and customer service,” said Tom Lindblom, Chief Technology Officer, CKE Restaurants, Inc. “Based on our review of Panasonic’s Stingray Envo POS solution, we feel confident it will provide our restaurants a reliable, flexible, user-friendly terminal that allows franchises to provide the quality experience their customers deserve.”

As a modular workstation, Stingray Envo is designed to increase efficiency by enabling self-service – often without the need for additional tools. In addition to a traditional upright configuration and a low profile form, Envo can be mounted in virtually any configuration to work seamlessly in any restaurant environment. Envo is built to withstand the daily wear of the restaurant environment, passing rigorous factory testing and featuring an aluminum alloy chassis to ensure reliability and dependability throughout the life of the device.

The Stingray Envo POS was on display at the Star Franchise Association (SFA) conference last month, and Panasonic will be exhibiting Envo at the IHFA event taking place October 2-4. The company invites CKE franchises to come by the Panasonic booth and experience Envo in person and learn more about how Panasonic can help improve their business.
