Founded by an Expert Operator & Technologist

Jim Melvin, serial technology entrepreneur and restaurant operations aficionado, founded Intelligent Transactions with the vision of helping great brands become greater. 

With a long history in restaurant technology, Jim found that many big brands had the raw potential to make a positive difference in the lives of their guests and employees, but lacked the tools to deliver that potential to their front lines. This potential manifested itself in the form of Brand Promises, but these Brand Promises often failed to take form due to technology limitations. 

Intelligent Transactions was created precisely to solve this critical problem; to help brands deliver on their Brand Promise through fit for purpose technology strategies.
