Domino’s proprietary described the point-of-sale system, Pulse, which is an important asset in maintaining consistent and efficient management functions in each of its restaurants. A point-of-sale system gain the control of purchase and payment data at a physical location where goods or services are bought and sold using computers, automated cash registers, scanners, or other digital devices.
Domino’s implemented pulse in a large portion of its store, and those stores reported improved customer service, reduced mistakes, and shorter training times. Since that time, Pulse has become a staple of all Domino’s franchises.
Domino’s introduced a new hardware and software and platform called Pulse Evolution which is now in use in a majority of Domino’s, which is easier to update and more secure only because one machine in the store needs to be updated. Inputs: Customer orders that describe the type of pizza crust, pizza ingredients and toppings, side orders, and delivery location data. They described their inputs as TPS, Pizza tracker and Pulse etc.
Processes: Data updates the system's database. The older software used a thick-client model, which required all machines using the software to be fully equipped personal computers running windows. Pulse evolution, on the other hand, uses thin-client architecture in which networked workstations with little independent processing power collect data and send them over the internet to powerful Lenovo PC’s for processing.
Output: The number of pizza and side orders sold, cost numbers for ingredients, delivery information, customer information. Customers can tract their order of…...

...Pizza Delivery Position Paper “I’m damned if I do, and I’m damned if I don’t,” (Old Saying). Life is filled with hard choices. In fact, the line between right and wrong action can be so blurred at times, that the morally correct action can truly be a mystery. This is why ethics is so important; because it allows one to sharpen their intellect and be able to discern right action from wrong. However, one part which even gives ethical reasoning a run for its money, is a decision where both outcomes are, by all estimations, equally as bad. In summation, Domino’s pizza has started a practice with one of its branches which disallows drivers to deliver pizzas to certain neighborhoods in their zone. As a part of this practice, Domino’s has created a map of its deliver radius and marked areas where it will allow drivers to deliver to and where it won’t allow drivers to deliver to. This policy was first implemented, because many employees where being robbed and murdered in these particular neighborhoods. Eventually certain members of the community, who lived in these “bad” neighborhoods, protested and said that these practices were pronounced acts of racism. Eventually other political groups got involved, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, who criticized this practice because all the targeted neighborhoods were predominantly minority neighborhoods. When first examining this problem, we see that there is one single underlying issue at the heart of the problem; is this......

...Domino’s Sizzles with Pizza Tracker Management Information Systems 625 Jacob M. Shannon Walsh University Case Study #1 There has been a definite transition in the pizza delivery business, with massive pizza chains vying for the most innovate way to create and sell their product. Even though this case may be a few years dated, one can still observe these innovations occurring in the present. Through intricate and efficient information systems, these innovations can be a viable and a creative way to get the customers what they want; however, in a different more unique fashion that can appeal to a wide and young demographic. Where one business lacks in quality compared to the other chains, the business can make up for it with innovative strategies for the customer to create the product they want. This in a sense almost gives the company, like Domino’s, a competitive edge when their quality doesn’t match competitors’. Utilization of systems like Pulse, a proprietary point-of-sale system, is an important asset in maintaining consistent and efficient management functions in each of its franchises (Laudon & Laudon, 2012). There are various types of information systems utilized within Domino’s strategy to gain a valid entry in the pizza chain market. One of these systems implemented is the transaction processing system or (TPS), which is utilized within their Pulse network.

Domino Pizza Case

...Domino’s Pizza Case: Geographical integration facing local specificities The U.S. Pizza Industry is not really attractive due to a lack of concentration¹ in the domestic market according to Porter’s five forces analysis. Despite this obvious lack of attractiveness, Domino’s Pizza (later referred to as «Domino’s») were able to make a 8% profit² relying on an inimitable competitive advantage: the 30-minute delivery guarantee made possible by a very specific computer system developed by the company. Facing few growth opportunities in the domestic market, the company decided to adopt a geographical integration strategy in order to increase market shares. Since market entry is riskier when there are cultural differences between the company and the new market, Domino’s adopted a master franchise model of operations that allowed the company to minimize its risks in foreign markets while earning higher returns through the royalties system. This memo addresses the question why Domino’s Pizza have been so successful in some countries and failed miserably in others whereas it was using the same franchising agreement system in every foreign country. To this end, we will highlight key success factors of geographical expansion through the franchise system: the company’s ability to transfer their resources to franchisees and to adapt to local tastes. We will then suggest Domino’s to improve their appraisal of the local environment and ensure better respect of their procedures to achieve......

Since the world is becoming a global village it is of utmost importance to effectively communicate within and outside of an organization. However, due to the large organizational sizes and the many organizational structures it becomes very difficult to get any message across. Effective communication can improve relations, motivate and ultimately best results for the company in the long run. The business communication issue that I am going to talk about happened in the year 2009, in North Carolina. Two employers of the fast-food Domino’s Pizza restaurant thought it was going to be funny to record and post a video playing rudely with the food at the same time they were cooking it. This video was posted on YouTube and automatically became to one of the most popular videos of the moment. This wasn’t that funny for the company, because this video made them lose all the good reputation they gained during the years with the hard work of many workers. The duo created a total of five videos, one of the videos showed an individual sticking mozzarella cheese up his nose and then blowing the cheese on a sandwich, among other unsanitary and stomach-turning activities. An estimated 1 million people viewed these videos before they were pulled two days later. (Justin Gray, 2011) This...

There is a wide variety of tourist types within the tourism market today,so much so that the term ‘average tourist’ has become irrelevant.

Indeed, increasing incomes to regions due to tourists are easy to see as well as numerous host-tourist conflicts and destruction of the environment and local cultures. However, tourism can have both positive and negative outcomes for residents in communities when sharing and preserving their culture and nature could be seen as conflicting goals.(McComick, B.E.2002,p303) Nevertheless here could be two sides of outcomes: positive and negative. The positive side is that tourism has brought booming business to many countries and causes economic growth Although tourism brings many jobs to countries and decrease unemployment. Also tourism supports business. Tourists purchase local goods and use local services such as attraction, entertainment and other. . However tourism has...
