Should a Restaurant Have Touchscreen Technology?

November 6, 2019

Restaurants — where would we be without them? And in today’s day and age, as technology helps to improve the consumer experience, it would be beneficial for all dining establishments to have touch screen technology! That being said, where would a restaurant owner implement these digital creations exactly? Here are a few things to consider:

Where to Implement Touch Screens at a Restaurant

POS System 

Gone are the days when sending a paper meal ticket to the chef is more beneficial than a digital copy. Nowadays, in order to increase productivity and delivery time, restaurants are opting for POS (Point of Sale) systems to not only track every transaction made but to help meals and drinks make their way to their patrons much faster. 

Additionally, POS Systems also help eliminate the need for waitstaff to hop inside the kitchen and pin the order ticket for the cook to see — the chef will rely on a touch screen order screen to see what dishes they should whip up, without any room for confusion (i.e., fast writing can be illegible sometimes).

Digital Menu

Sometimes, potential customers will want to see what your restaurant serves up before asking for a table. And without hesitation, they’ll browse a menu or board that will tell them what exactly they can feast upon when stepping inside your establishment. However, the solution to the problem is simple: A Custom Touch Screen Display. 

Restaurateurs can have a digital display set up that showcases their menu items and specials of the day. Potential customers can then press through the menu, see what each dish contains, and if there are any substitutions. The best part? If you update your menu, you can update the content on the digital screen without having to go to a print factory — it’s that simple and cost-effective.
