Curtis 1000 to Showcase KLIC RealTime
at Florida Restaurant Show

Innovative solution simplifies and speeds up menu management and event updates

Curtis 1000, a business communications company focused on exceptional client service, will showcase KLIC RealTime during the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Show on Sept. 15-16 in Orlando.

KLIC RealTime automates the menu and event editing process through version controls for restaurants. This tool eliminates manual approvals, large email attachments, slow turnaround times and missed deadlines.

KLIC RealTime benefits:

  • Creates a single source of truth for design and content on any document
  • Features specific setups for menus and event signage
  • Consolidates document planning, design, ordering and fulfillment into one system
  • Streamlines communication among contributors
  • Simplifies and enhances the approval process with flexible automation
  • Incorporates extended capabilities, including print-on demand, fulfillment and warehousing

“We know that multi-unit restaurants want real-time updates with new menu ideas, pricing strategies and optimized layouts but find it difficult to update so many items across so many locations,” said Keith Schwartz, Senior Vice President of Sales at Curtis 1000.

“We’ve seen this tool make a huge impact because it dramatically simplifies making updates to hundreds of unique menu items or event signage across thousands of locations. The new process takes a fraction of the time, and items are delivered to your door within days.”

KLIC RealTime maintains archived menus and has the capability to set up custom workflows based on corporate or regional standards for the brand’s look and feel, ensuring all locations follow brand standards.

“Maintaining brand integrity across geographic locations was a priority. We built the tool to have strong flexibility and controls based on unique client preferences,” said Kevin Connell, Senior Vice President of Technology. “Documents can be modified quickly within the application which means teams no longer rely on graphic designer availability.”

Using templates where the branded portion remains static, users can make updates and see others’ updates in real time. Most changes will not require template changes, which means your graphic designers can spend more time on mission-critical work and less time on making minor menu edits. Clients can easily make updates at specific locations if, for example, a particular region wants to maximize local fresh produce, or perhaps finance wants to update the cost of the staples across all locations. Both are accomplished with simple clicks and route through your approval workflow in minutes.

Curtis 1000 will showcase KLIC RealTime at Booth #1211 during the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Show on Sept. 15-16 in Orlando. Attendees who schedule a demo in advance will receive their choice of a $25 gift card or a $25 donation to No Kid Hungry, an organization committed to ending child hunger in America.
