Radiant Systems Announces Launch of New Touch Screen Point-of-Sale Terminal for Stadiums and Arenas

Fast, reliable, feature-rich Quest Diversus™ brings state-of-the-art technology to concessions sales

Radiant Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: RADS) today announced the launch of Quest Diversus™, a new concession point-of-sale (POS) terminal for stadiums and arenas. Debuting at Philips Arena, Diversus is the first hybrid POS in the industry and provides the ultimate flexibility in functionality and ease of use through a configurable touch screen and membrane keypad. Diversus joins the Quest Venue Manager product suite, which currently supports food, beverage and merchandise sales in venues around the world.

“We are proud to deliver the only commercially-viable POS with a touch screen that supports stadium and arena concessions sales inside or outdoors,” said Scott Kingsfield, president of the retail, sports and entertainment division at Radiant Systems. “Our goal is to deliver innovative and reliable solutions to our clients that allow them to focus on what is truly important – providing excellent service in a fast and efficient manner. The combination of touch screen functionality and a membrane keypad in Diversus helps our clients deliver a fast and seamless customer interaction.”

Additional functionality including an encrypted magnetic stripe reader, rapid credit card processing, and an integrated scanner and RFID reader can drive improvements in speed of service, which is critical to event-based operations. To avoid service interruptions, Diversus also comes equipped with a two-hour backup battery. Furthermore, the terminal serves as an extension of the point of sale, equipping managers with reports and other data on the touch screen so they can make immediate service decisions during the course of an event. Diversus will be widely-available in late 2011, and Radiant Systems expects to launch DiversusAir, a portable wireless touch screen terminal, early next year.

“Speed, flexibility and fan-friendliness are critical elements of our food and beverage service,” said Bob Williams, president of the Atlanta Hawks and Philips Arena. “The touch screen capability that Diversus adds to our Quest POS system allows us to deliver this high level of service to our fans while they focus on enjoying our games and events.”
