The McDonald’s Corporation is the world’s largest quick-serve restaurant chain. There are over 30 000 McDonald’s restaurants in 119 countries serving an average of 46 million people daily. From humble beginnings in 1955, the first McDonald’s franchise restaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois, USA took in US$366.12 on its first day of business. As they say the rest is history, and hard work coupled with positive work ethics have paid off.
In 2002, the company recorded US$41.5 billion in worldwide sales, and looks set to achieve greater success in the cyber-years to come McDonald’s opened its first restaurant in Singapore in 1979. And what an event that was – the world’s highest volume of hamburgers were served that fateful October day at Liat Towers!
Today, 125 McDonald’s restaurants across the island serve 55 million customers. 6000 staff keep the McDonald’s machine running ship-shape. McDonald Sinapore’s Back Office system is developed and maintained internally entirely using FourJ’s Products. Each of the 125 restaurants use the application suite consisting of HR/Payroll, Finance, Stock and Inventory systems, as part of their basic operations. Their BIS operations also are powered by FourJs products.
