According to leading experts, four out of five restaurant operators agree that technology increases sales, boosts productivity, and gives their establishment a competitive edge. That’s a major opportunity, and Intel is excited to partner with Ziosk to bring the latest in hospitality technology to 2017’s National Restaurant Association Show.
The show is the largest gathering of the food and hospitality industry, featuring the latest developments in food and food technology, as well as other innovations. Focuses this year will be on developing positive workplaces, and there will be a suite of hands-on educational sessions designed to improve productivity and efficiency. The signature event will feature a roundtable of industry leaders, including Jason Dorsey, Dan Park, and Dawn Sweeney on how to get ahead of the curve. We’ll be there in full force, enjoying the show, and presenting new tech.
The Latest Upgrade for Hospitality
Ziosk pay-at-table and mobile payment solutions have served 1.25 billion people worldwide; they’ve processed $20 billion in transactions, and will process billions more. Intel’s partnership means these solutions are fueled by the latest computing technology, featuring our Atom processors for more powerful and robust performance.
New upgrades ultimately benefit the end-user experience, providing seamless “pay and go” options that allow customers to leave when they like, streamlining restaurant operations. After customers leave feedback, it becomes immediately available to restaurant operators, with additional customer data giving insight into menu and drink options. Most importantly, pay-at-table solutions allow servers to give more time and attention to customers, instead of focusing on handling the check.
Tech Partners and Results
Ziosk has partnered with some of the biggest names in hospitality already, including Chili’s, Olive Garden, Red Robin, TGI Friday’s, Outback, and Friendly’s.
When customers are in a restaurant featuring Ziosk technology, more than 80 percent of credit and debit card users will use the terminals, improving the pace of table turns by six to nine minutes. There are also total increases in customer surveys filled out, and major increases in eClub and loyalty program enrollment.
Intel is proud to have our technology serving and improving the bottom line for hospitality, and we’re excited that our Atom processors keep business humming. If you’d like to find out more, check out the product launch at NRA Show 2017, or learn more on our solutions page.
