Technology Innovation Award Nomination for Benseron Hospitality

Benseron Hospitality selected as finalist for Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership’s “Innovention” Award.

NAPLES, FL ( May 14th, 2018

— Benseron Hospitality was selected for their consistent track record of innovation across multiple software products, and adoption by customers globally. Benseron Hospitality has built multiple POS systems, Linga POS and Bevo POS, providing a choice of operating systems and both cloud or terminal-based approaches. They have built a payment processing company, Hybrid Payments, and online ordering product, ZenPepper, both of which integrate seamlessly with their POS platforms, or can be purchased separately to use with third-party systems.

Along the way, Benseron has focused on disruptive software innovation that does what legacy approaches required multiple vendors to accommodate. For example, Linga POS boasts native add-ons for call center integration, wait list and reservations, inventory management and centralized kitchen functions, customer loyalty management, and even tools to adjust your restaurant thermostat and security cameras. With new feature releases every quarter, Benseron continues to push the bar for modern POS systems, and respond to the demanding needs of growing restaurant and retail franchises. Most recently, Benseron launched self-serve Kiosk options in North America and Europe.

Onur Haytac, the founder of Benserson Hospitality was an FGCU student in 2004 when he was asked to help a Subway franchisee with a late-night computer fix and found his calling. Bevo POS was his first product and is still used and supported by the company globally. The move to iPads and cloud-based data storage with Linga POS has helped Haytac and his company serve a growing number of multi-location restaurants in over 20 countries. Haytec travels the world, with offices in Naples, FL, India, Dubai, Canada, and Turkey. In April of 2017, he received a TOA award for Turkish-American entrepreneurs under 40. Benseron employs a culturally diverse workforce of over 100 people and has a track record of empowering businesses with the technology they need to work smarter.

Benseron has given back to their local technology and education community as well. Today, FGCU’s Resorts and Hospitality Program trains students in inventory control, as well as front-of-house and back-of-house management with Linga POS.

Earlier in 2018, Linga POS was recognized in both the Rising Star and Great Usability categories by Finances Online, a B2B software review platform.

The Award ceremony for the SWFRTP is at 6pm on May 17th at The Club at Grandezza. Tickets are available at
