Connected Restaurants: Is IoT The Future of Food?
FREMONT, CA: By the year 2025, there will be 75 billion Internet of Things devices in the world say reports. The Internet of Things (IoT) is indeed dominating the headlines, unfolding on many fronts across the globe. Restaurants are also welcoming the era of IoT. Here are some of the best and most realistic IoT solutions for the connected restaurant of now and the future.
• Customer Communications
These digital signages allow the restaurants to set up personalized, curated displays of content that appeal directly to the customers. Unlike the conventional screens, the cloud-based digital software systems can be changed and edited in seconds. Additionally, these digital signs can also be used to add real-time travel updates, live news, emergency warnings, social media, and customer testimonials and feedback. In short, every step taken will make restaurants connected to their customers and what they do.
Restaurant spaces are changing towards the concept of hyper-personalized ordering systems. The application allows its customer to choose individual ingredients, creating their meal. Moreover, the customer can adjust amounts to get that perfect calorie balance. This means the restaurants are all set to serve food for vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free diners to cite a few. In a few years, hyper-personalized meals will become the norm in the connected restaurant space.
• Better Stock Management
With customers presently requesting farm to table freshness in their food, stock and wastage can be an issue. Restaurants are currently utilizing associated frameworks where sensors and stock control are overseen in the cloud, delivering cautioning, notifications, and more intellectual stock administration frameworks.
Existing restaurants are upgradable. With the slow and constant convergence of technology into the food industry, all restaurants will get new user experiences, new machine capabilities, new business models and collaborations, and the list goes on.
