The Restaurant of the Future: How Next-Gen Technologies Enrich the Guest Experience and Lower the Cost of Innovation

It’s no secret that the most successful restaurants deliver compelling and consistent customer experiences at every possible interaction and at each location. But the cost and effort of extending these experiences across channels and multiple locations can be both costly and overwhelming – especially while ensuring the latest requirements in security and compliance and turning up new locations. Can your current restaurant infrastructure and technology deliver on tomorrow’s customer and organizational needs?

Experts on this session will provide a high-level overview of the benefits of the latest technologies, including delivering robust guest experiences, enhancing security compliance, enriching loyalty programs and simplifying rollouts. They’ll also discuss how to implement them as fully managed solutions to free up CapEx budgets and allow your teams to focus on proactive strategic initiatives.
