Say “Hello” to Ciao
Ciao Systems, Inc. is an independent software development company based in Arlington, Virginia that specializes in restaurant management or point-of-sale (POS) software. Ciao is recognized nationally for providing affordable solutions that maximize the efficiency of a restaurant’s management and staff and for providing quality support to its dealers and their customers.  Ciao’s flagship product, Ciao POS, is widely regarded as the industry’s easiest-to-use and easiest-to-learn point-of-sale software because of its highly graphical and intuitive design.

In addition to Ciao POS, Ciao offers several add-on modules including credit card processing, delivery, gift cards, back office management, table management and enterprise; and a number of interfaces to third party software. We are also aggressively developing enhancements and additional add-ons to Ciao with the goal of making Ciao the premier POS product in the industry.

Since its founding in 2001 by CEO Jonathan W. Price, Ciao Systems and its nationwide network of dealers have installed systems in hundreds of restaurants and hospitality sites in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. Ciao software is also used in hospitals, hotels, business cafeterias, clubs and convenience stores.

Jonathan Price launched Ciao Systems after working as a government contractor automating restaurants and clubs at over 200 military bases worldwide.  He saw an opportunity to improve restaurant operations using new features giving managers open access to a wide range of features not available in any other product.  The result is Ciao Software – the most flexible, robust, and easy-to-use restaurant management software on the market.

Ciao (pronounced “chow”) is the Italian word for hello and good-bye. The word derives from the Latin phrase survo suo meaning, “I am your servant.” Ciao is not a literal expression of submission, but rather a promise of goodwill between friends, or that is to say “you can count on me.” So remember: You can count on Ciao!

About Point-of-Sale
Point-of-sale software is used to – among many other things – calculate sales, operate the cash drawer, track sales data and take orders. At its most basic level, it is a computerized cash register. POS adds totals, figures sales tax, calculates change back from the amount tendered and records the restaurant’s inventory levels. In the recent technologies, POS has incorporated touch screens that make transactions even faster. These specialty computers connect to servers, printers and the Internet. Point-of-sale systems, like Ciao POS, have vastly improved the restaurant industry, increasing efficiency dramatically.
