Partnership offering express-ordering solution

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Leading convenience store technology provider Gilbarco Veeder-Root has joined leading kiosk software developer Xpedient LLC to introduce new foodservice ordering solutions and enhance the existing offering to help retailers grow a profitable foodservice business. The partnership covers the Gilbarco Express Ordering foodservice product line, as well as ongoing support and upgrade opportunities for the installed base.

Gilbarco first introduced Express Ordering self-service food ordering kiosks in 2006.
