Starting with the company for his first tour in the 90’s, James is now on his third tour with what is now i3 Point of Sale. James has held many roles within the organization and his knowledge of the Aloha product as well as all of the technical disciplines involved in hospitality IT is one of our secret weapons. During his time away from the company James worked for a few large restaurant IT groups who used the Aloha product giving him the unique perspective that our clients have, which helps him drive his teams to exceed client expectations. When he’s not orchestrating implementation excellence, James enjoys trips to the desert to ride the dunes on his dirt bike, taking in a sunny San Diego day with 18 holes of golf and hitting the slopes snow skiing with his family.

Kristen Stone

Operations Manager​

Hailing from Sunny San Diego, Kristen’s first POS experience came from retail, not hospitality. Working in a customer service environment at the retail juggernaut that is Nordstrom, Kristen honed her customer service skills while learning operational and logistical excellence. Stepping away from retail she decided to further improve those skills at San Diego State University (Go Aztecs) earning an MBA in Organizational Management, which she imparts here at i3 Point of Sale daily in her Operations Management role. When not implementing and managing processes, Kristen enjoys baking tasty treats, running so she can eat those tasty treats, competing in half marathons, and traveling.

Zach Stanford

Director of Sales

Zach worked in fine dining before joining i3 Point Of Sale, where for more than a decade he’s been using his industry expertise to help restaurants thrive. He was drawn to the job because he saw firsthand how ineffective POS systems impair restaurant operations—and how Aloha made everything work seamlessly. He enjoys listening to clients and helping them put together comprehensive solutions that meet their unique needs. When he’s not serving the best POS sales team in the business, he spends time with his wife and two children, plays music, and reads.
