Paris – Lisses – Runcorn, February 2018. Right within the beating heart of Paris, between Madeleine and Concorde, the BOISSY D’ANGLAS is the product of exceptional savoir-faire matched with consummate, timeless culinary expertise. Having reopened its doors last September, new owners Chef Francis Rousseau and wife Caroline, who previously ran Le Rousseau restaurant in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, make the establishment a worthy successor to the legendary “Tante Louise” (1929-1998), renamed “Loiseau Rive Droite” in August 1998.
The new managers have chosen MOREL CHR to install cutting-edge POS management and payment systems based on the AURES Group’s robust and reliable YUNO terminals.
A gastronomic haunt since the 1930s, this 80-seat restaurant has always offered traditional cuisine in all its subtlety, where flavour and originality meet in an art-deco setting recently redesigned by renowned interior designer Pierre Canot.
“For almost 15 years we have been working with Frédéric Morel in a spirit of constantly renewed mutual trust,” Francis Rousseau explained. “He has supported us since our beginnings at “the Tourelle” in Saint Mandé near Paris; we requested his services and expertise again for our digital till management and payment systems when my wife and I took over “La Taverne Basque” which later became Le Rousseau.”
“MOREL CHR has found the perfect solution to installing and integrating our POS hardware”, AURES France Key Account Manager Thomas Donnet explained. “No one understands the IT and management needs of a restaurant of BOISSY d ’ANGLAS’ standing as well as Frédéric and his team.”
“The restaurant’s 80 seats are spread out over three levels: we therefore had to deploy POS systems in different dining rooms and lounges, separated by stairways, where access was sometimes rather awkward. The systems had to be reliable, ergonomic and, above all, perfectly blended into their surroundings, including confined spaces, such as the bar or the stone-wall cellar, located in the basement, which features a ‘table d’hôtes’ for a dozen or so people,” Frédéric Morel, founder and Managing Director of MOREL CHR, commented.
“The PHARE software platform on which BOISSY d’ ANGLAS’ POS solution is managed was developed in France.
It’s been around for over 15 years and runs on Windows. It’s user-friendly, highly intuitive and has been certified by its publisher as complying with new French tax regulations applicable from 1 January 2018.”
“The various applications of the PHARE software package cover all management operations at our restaurant, front and back of house,” owner Caroline Rousseau added. “Payment is quick, even when the bar is full, and the booking and table plan management applications make life very easy; the platform enables administrative and accounting data to be forwarded via manager smartphones, an extremely practical and modern system.”
PHARE has been configured to facilitate management of menu changes; likewise, for the cellar and wine list, which boast a huge range of vintage wines that change with the menu according to month or season.
“The sleek, ergonomic design of the YUNO EPOS terminal and its ease of integration are appreciated by all; we have two stand-mounted POS terminals in standard configuration – in the bar and main dining room – and two wall-mounted terminals: matching the screen background with the wall decor brings an extra touch of elegance,” Frédéric Morel added.
“The speed and reliability of the i3 processor is a major selling point, as well as its resistance to water and grease, a common occurrence in kitchens and restaurants; the adjustable viewing angle of the touchscreen, as well as the endurance and precision of the touch panel, even after hours of use, are equally prized features in our working environment.”
“The AURES 3-year manufacturer warranty, along with MOREL CHR’s maintenance service, is also a plus,” Francis Rousseau concluded.
Solution and system deployment at BOISSY d’ ANGLAS includes 4 YUNO POS terminals, in black (equipped with i3 processors), as well as coordinated ODP 333 receipt printers.
