The 5 Tech Trends To Have In Your Restaurant

Please correct the marked field(s) below.

iPads used for menus and wine lists are pretty cool. You can’t even argue with that because in 2015 that started being one of the latest tech trends for restaurants. So what about 2016 and this year? As a restaurant you need to invest in technology that increases your efficiency and makes for a top notch customer experiences to crush your competition.

iPad Point of Sale System
This is the very core of your operation, so don’t settle for outdated, slow, and frustrating technology that doesn’t meet your needs. iPad or tablet-based POS systems aren’t even in the same league as cash registers. Basic cash registers don’t cut it anymore. Imagine running your business with a system designed to meet your needs? Customizable table layout, fully controlled inventory, real-time reporting, and cloud-based. Did we mention access from anywhere? This and much more is what a modern day POS system can offer you.

IoT Devices
When you leave your restaurant late at night, have you ever had the nagging thought that maybe you didn’t lock the door, or you can’t remember whether you did? Did you turn off the lights? Set the alarm? The newest and most advanced cloud-based POS systems are integrated with IoT devices. In case you didn’t know what IoT devices are, think a smart home that you can remotely control via the internet. Set the temp, control and check your door locks and have oversight into a CCTV stream. Say bye to your worries!

Kitchen Display Systems
Most kitchens are messy, fast paced, and busy. Tickets can get lost and are hard to keep track off. With a kitchen display system, you can send your orders directly to the kitchen and track their status. Know how long it’s been since the order was placed, and make sure your customers experience reasonable wait times even on your busiest days! And if you kitchen does get backed up, at least now you can be proactive and offer your guest a complimentary item while they wait.

Mobile Order Takers
You can take orders directly from the table. It goes hand in hand with the kitchen display system. Give your servers the ability to take orders swiftly and instantly communicate and send them to the kitchen. Less mistakes and quicker service. And you can edit or change orders instantly and get recommendations as you are inputting items. Help your servers up sale items.

Digital Menu Boards
Did you know there are more options than paper menus and iPad menus, especially if you are a bar or QSR? Show of your specials, enticing pictures of your dishes, and find an easy way to change prices or other details. Ultimately, digital menu boards give you a lot more room for flexibility and creativity. You can choose you layout and how many columns you’d like and have fun with what you are selling. Consider the investment!
