TROY — Nextep Systems, the food service kiosk and ordering technology developer, this week announced record sales and earnings for 2012.
Privately held Nextep reported a 60 percent increase in revenue, the seventh straight year since the company’s 2005 inception that it has shown positive growth and continued profitability. Nextep saw a number of technological accomplishments in 2012, most notably the finishing touches on its cloud based restaurant Point Of Sale system, the first fully integrated cloud based POS on the market. The company was also awarded its first patent, with six more already in process.
Though its business focuses on several distinct verticals, Nextep had exceptional success with new restaurant sales, and with corporate cafeteria sales in partnership with major management companies Sodexo, Aramark, and Compass Group.
“It was an exciting year for Nextep,” said Tommy Woycik, Nextep president. “I could not be more pleased to see the growth we’ve made not only financially, but as a dynamic team. It’s also great to know that we can continue to deliver amazing customer service while improving the product suite through significant expansion into new accounts.”
As the company continued to grow, Nextep hired new employees to fill much-needed positions in its infrastructure. The company saw staff increase by 20 percent in 2012, and expects similar increases again in 2013.
This year also promises more product innovation. Nextep is accelerating development of its mobile and tablet ordering solutions, extending support to platforms beyond iOS, including Android and Windows Phone 8.
Nextep offers the world’s first fully integrated technology solution for food service industries. Its cloud based point of sale is the cornerstone of their fully integrated product suite that includes digital menu boards, self order kiosks and tablets, the trademarked World’s Fastest Drive Thru, kitchen management, and a host of online management tools.
