- QUICK SERVICE RETAIL (QSR)
Industry Pioneers and Leaders
In 2005 our founders pioneered the use of automated Internet terminals in the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) market in the United States. Since then, our experience and technology have focused on leveraging the power of the Internet with core QSR products.
Engage and Enrich
Our custom signage and convenient service increases new traffic and drives repeat business. Enrich your customers' experience: allow them to enjoy their favorite foods while browsing their favorite sites.
Premium Use of Space
How much space can you afford to give up? Usually the answer is none. Our solution is not to take space but transform it. We first developed this model in Manhattan where the concern from our QSR partners is always space.
In today's competitive market amidst higher material and energy costs, restaurants everywhere are searching for ways to increase the bottom line. We provide the opportunity to increase your core business and add new revenue streams. In as little as one month after deployment, our clients report increases in their core sales. These core sales increases are in addition to the new revenue shares from our Internet service partnership.

We can customize our software with your point-of-sale (POS) system to deliver receipt-driven, WiFi access codes. This allows you to analyze your core sales trendlines in relation to our Internet service partnership.

We offer guidance and consultation as you consider the options. And then we do the rest.
WiFi in the Modern Landscape
Today finding a wireless Internet signal in a café is almost as common as finding a newspaper. But ensuring a safe, quality signal that complements your business can be more difficult than it seems. An unreliable and insecure wireless network can do more damage to your business having than no network at all.
Our technical experience, secure systems and best-in-class software delivers a true value-added complement to your core products. We install and maintain all hardware, software, devices, and automated payment systems. You and your staff are left free to attend to your core business. You're the expert in your core business. We supply the expertise in our core business: self-serve, public Internet terminals and wireless access.
Fee or No Fee?
Café managers often struggle when deciding whether to offer complimentary or fee-based WiFi access. Low table turns can occur with free WiFi especially during peak times, as patrons idle for hours at their tables. But customers may balk at fee-based WiFi, particularly when your competition offers it for free. By partnering with E Terminals, you can offer both.
A Fair Compromise
Our system allows you to offer free wireless access with customer purchase – in some cases we can merge it with your POS system. You set the rates and conditions, with our guidance. Once their complimentary time with initial purchase has expired, your customers can be presented with several options to continue their WiFi usage. Again, you determine these options as well.
safety and security

Our content-filtering feature ensures family-friendly website access, guarding against the public display of inappropriate adult websites.
