Leveraging technology is one of the best ways to add to the business’ bottom line. Savings can take many forms. Let’s take a look at some different aspects from the small restaurant perspective.
The first aspect is time. A standard procedure is receiving a menu after customers are greeted and seated. The waiter/waitress depending upon restaurant may speak to the day’s specials. This time although brief eventually adds up. A new way of doing things is to encourage people to simply look at the menu via the mobile application that’s been developed. This not only frees up the staff to continually attend to other patrons but is a quick and subtle way to ensure the customer integrates the business onto their smartphone.
Coupling time with the ecological, one can now remove the majority if not all of the paper menus within the restaurant. This not only helping to “go green” but it also is easier to update the restaurant pricing structure. Normally, this becomes the responsibility of staff during “down time” to manually go through each menu, crossing out the price and writing in the correct one. This is not only time consuming, there has to be a staff member with good handing writing (I’d personally fail) to changes the prices around. Again, simplify and convenience permits a staff member to log in once, change the prices, and then it is done.
Lastly, it is using a different system completely that runs your information within our software. We utilize what’s called a “virtual private server” that has a 99.9% uptime. It’s extremely fast and can connects your patrons nearly instantaneously with the data so when information is updated, everyone benefits.
Mobile app ordering is present within the chain restaurants and it’s only a matter of time until it reaches the independently owned ones. If you’ve not gotten started today, you can build your app for absolutely no cost below within the app building portion of the platform.
