Breadcrumb Launches AirLift, Point-Of-Sale Hardware Protection for Restaurants and Bars

grouponBreadcrumb, which was obtained by Groupon last year, announced “Airlift” a protection plan that offers restaurants and bars an overnight emergency parts replacement service along with an extended warranty place for iPad POS systems.

Airlift will help protect businesses for a two year period by limiting the application’s down time with a hassle-free part replacement for accidental damage and hardware defects.

For an extra fee of approximately $100 per terminal purchased from the Breadbox store, AirLift provides a low-cost option for businesses to protect their mission-critical equipment. Breadcrumb already provides one year of free coverage on basic manufacturing defects.

In today’s Groupon press release the highlights of AirLift  were described to include:

  • Affordable Pricing – Costs hundreds of dollars less than similar plans and services from other POS providers
  • Emergency Parts Replacement – Offers overnight shipping on replacement parts at no additional cost
  • Everything Included – Covers all parts under the same warranty agreement, with the ability to replace the same part multiple times
  • Accidental Damage Coverage – Protects expensive POS equipment against cracked screens and water damage – essential for restaurant environments (accidental damage claims require a $50 deductible)

“Breadcrumb is more than an iPad POS app. We’re committed to providing our food and beverage clients with the equipment, infrastructure and 24/7 support they need for a critical piece of their business,” said Seth Harris, founder, Breadcrumb in a press release by Groupon.
