The adaptation of technology into your operations can be a differentiating factor for your businesses’ success. As automation become more advanced, technology can be helpful in running quick-service restaurants.
Let’s quickly cover how technology automation such as a self-ordering kiosk can benefit both employees and businesses.
Why Self-Ordering Kiosks Are So Effective
To get a better understanding of a self-ordering kiosk, and how it can help businesses in QSR, we are first going to discuss the process in which it works.
Firstly, a self-ordering kiosk operates independently of any team members on your staff.
It is a POS system, with a touch-pad interface- that allows customers to hand-pick products they would like to order.
Self-ordering eliminates miscommunications with employees and allows the customer to order from your restaurant pressure–free.
In busy QSR restaurants, customer’s often feel rushed and slightly stressed when team members are working to quickly take orders to reduce queues.
Compare that experience to ordering at a self-ordering kiosk—where ticket items are sent to your employees digitally, and effectively, to ensure low wait times for the customer.
A self-ordering kiosk keeps your QSR quick and your employees focused on filling automated orders.
Customers and employees can experience the ordering process with ease!
With social distancing guidelines currently in place, businesses have created various ways to continue operations while adhering to guidelines.
Whether it be plexiglass implemented at salons and restaurants, outside seating, or at a self-ordering kiosk, businesses have found ways to be successful in 2020.
With a self-ordering kiosk system in the restaurant industry, the ‘no contact’ rule is no problem.
Not only do these systems eliminate the need for employee-to-customer contact during the ordering process, but the surface of this product can be easily cleaned.
The customer-facing monitor can easily be wiped with a cloth and disinfectant in-between uses. This simple and effective implementation can psychologically make your customers feel safer at your store, thus resulting in a higher likelihood of them returning.
Furthermore, for an additional layer of comfort, sanitizing wipes can be places at the ordering kiosk so that customers can ensure their safety themselves as well!
