RTI Named Technology “Supplier of the Year” by Checkers Drive-In Restaurants

Checkers recognizes RTI with vendor award after successful back office transition.

ATLANTA — Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc., recognized RTI, Inc. as a winner of its 2011 Supplier of the Year Award for their back office software, RTIconnect™, which Checkers uses to control food and labor costs in their corporate restaurants.

The award was presented to RTI President Jim Clutter at the Checkers/Rally’s annual convention in September at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Fla. It follows completion of the company’s transition from an in-house back office system to full implementation of RTIconnect in all 296 corporate locations. Checkers also endorses RTI as vendor-of-choice for its franchisees.

“RTI is honored to receive this award,” said Mr. Clutter, “and privileged to play a role in Checkers & Rally’s growth and success. We were pleased when Checkers initially chose RTIconnect as their back office solution and our relationship has matured since then as I believe we have strengthened our respective businesses.”

In the Checkers corporate restaurants RTIconnect interfaces with the existing Aloha® POS software for seamless integration of data into Checkers corporate accounting, payroll, and reporting systems.

Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. is the largest double drive-thru restaurant chain in the United States and is parent company of both Checkers® and Rally’s® concepts. The Supplier of the Year Award follows Checkers’ annual assessment of progress and achievement with its suppliers.
