What RDS Customers Say

  • Any time we call RDS we get an answer right away. If the stores are having an issue it is corrected very quickly, usually within minutes…. sometimes it is hard with other vendors, to even get an answer, let alone a timely one.

  • RDS works hand in hand with our back office system and I can't imagine not having RDS for our cash registers. For Instance, if we lose internet connection, we can still process credit cards off-line so it doesn't affect sales and customer service. Any time there is a problem that we need to communicate right away, we are able to use after -hours support by calling. We always get a response right away.

  • My team at Arby's CNN center recently had the privilege of working with two outstanding POS system installers/trainers from the RDS office in Iowa. Both Greg Becker and Jamie Walker were true professionals and accomplished the job in a timely fashion and to our satisfaction. They were both outstanding and very helpful in bringing the team up to speed on the new system even after the initial install. These days it is hard to find people who truly stand behind their product after the initial sale is completed. I without any reservations, recommend them to any entity looking forward to upgrading their system.

  • Retail Data Systems, in conjunction with RTI, provide reports which are easily accessible from my remote computer and smart phone, even when on vacation, to help monitor unit operations. RDS is always prompt to respond to service and support issues. I am unaware of anyone else who works with a lot of Arby’s units staying up to date on the routine changes in the way RDS does. I don’t know of any other Company providing the caliber of service we obtain from them. I would highly recommend them to others for this reason. I feel fortunate we started using RDS 30 years ago and haven’t had any reason to look elsewhere.
