The success of our customers is of paramount important to us, and we want to make sure we are ready and able to support new customers as they deploy FIRMS in their restaurants. To control the rate at which we bring new customers online with FIRMS, we have a first-come, first-served queue through which new customers will move. We expect that over the next 2 months the queue time will be reduced to just a few days."
"We are excited to roll out FIRMS to a broad audience. Moving from pilot to production is a major milestone for a startup company and we've achieved this in just 12 months. Our backlog of interested customers assures us that we are on the right track and that we have a product and strategy that resonates with our target market."
