In response to requests for a CiCi's Restaurant POS solution which is powerful and robust yet very cost effective, AccoladePOS can now offer our Ready ‘N Fresh™ or Prime Ready software bundled with our Accolade Data Warehouse services for a low subscription fee of only $99.00 per month.
Software - Ready ‘N Fresh™ and Prime Ready
Almost two years in testing and development specifically for CiCi’s operations, Accolade’s POS software for CiCi’s has successfully processed over one million transactions in CiCi’s corporate and franchise restaurants. It is the standard for CiCi’s corporate stores and is fully integrated with JMC Trucking. It also provides accounting for CiCi’s gift checks, a credit card interface, with the addition of the optional PC Charge interface software, caller ID capability, payroll timekeeping, scheduling, and Weekly Sales Analysis reporting. With the ability to remotely update prices, it provides a reliable and consistent interface solution for your enterprise.
Here is how our new $99.00 per month program works:
AccoladePOS specializes in software and data storage and does not sell or service hardware. You provide the hardware and hardware support; we provide the software, software update support, data warehouse reporting and support.
Subscription / extended purchase software program
Previously, AccoladePOS Prime Ready, and Ready ‘N Fresh™ software systems were packaged and sold integrated with hardware and help desk support for a single one time purchase price. We are now proud to offer our software products in a extended purchase billing format. Billed monthly, the software includes all of the features and integration with CiCi’s JMC Trucking as our one time purchased software does and during this promotion, adds to it a subscription to the Accolade Data Warehouse reporting system for a one (1) year trial period.
Cost per month
AccoladePOS ‘Prime Ready’ or ‘Ready ‘N Fresh’ with Accolade Data Warehouse reporting and analysis services costs only $ 99.00 per month for the first year. Billing is monthly for each month in advance with only one month required at signup.
Thereafter you will be billed $99.00 per month for the POS software and $45.00 per month for Data Warehouse service for a total of $144.00 per month for the second and third year of your subscription purchase.
If you decide not to continue Data Warehouse services then the software only cost continues at $99.00 per month to the expiration of your subscription.
A thirty six month subscription period is required for the POS software. All software license fees and automatic product enhancement upgrade fees are included in the monthly price as well as business hours telephone and remote support for unusual bug reporting and analysis. You have a buy-out option which may be exercised at anytime. If you decide to exercise this option, the Ready ‘N Fresh™ software system may be purchased for the total amount of then remaining payments due to complete the subscription term, less a discount of twenty percent (20%). For example at the end of one year, with 24 months remaining, the cost would be $99 X 24 = $2376.00 less $475.20 (20%) = $1900.80. Other than making monthly payments, all other features of the subscription such as data warehouse access and software exception support, remain in effect until the end of the initial 36 month period.
After the initial thirty six month subscription period you own the software license , renewal subscriptions for continuing product enhancement are priced at $29.00 per month, data warehouse continues at $45.00 per month.Should you require a more extensive 24/7 help desk support for menu programming or other operational issues, it is available for an additional $52.00 per month paid annually.

If you choose a hardware configuration, that does not include at least 1 CD ROM reader (typical on some all-in-one terminal configurations); the software is supplied on a removable USB thumb drive memory stick.Once you receive our software shipment, and your hardware installation is complete, contact our installation support desk.
