The pandemic forced two key trends into the spotlight – the need for technology and prioritization of consumer convenience.

In the past two years, a number of restaurants, large and small, have tested digital kiosks, robotic waiters, kitchen display systems, and more to cut costs and improve efficiency. Many of these vendors were on display at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, which brought in more than 50,000 onlookers across four days.

Check out these 12 tech products and solutions that operators are using to make the day-to-day grind easier for employees and customers.

Restaurant365 is proud to have one of our newest features spotlighted alongside the other technologies highlighted in this article. Here is what FSR had to say.

Restaurant365 Manager Logbook

Restaurant365, an all-in-one cloud-based accounting, inventory, scheduling, payroll, and HR solution developed specifically for restaurants, has unveiled a host of innovations to ensure operators can adjust to the pandemic accordingly.

One of those is a new mobile-first Manager Logbook that enhances shift-to-shift communication by removing the need for handwritten notes. Managers can keep a record of customer concerns, personnel issues, vendor mishaps, and other events that impact the business digitally, allowing them to identify trends and leverage those insights to improve the business.

“The pandemic forced our industry to accelerate the adoption of technology at a record pace, leaping the equivalent of four years forward,” Mark Calvillo, senior vice president of product, said in a statement. “Our team took notice of how restaurant norms changed overnight, and we knew we had to keep pace by accelerating the advancement of our solutions. These latest innovations and enhancements will be of great value to our customers as they continue to optimize their post-pandemic operations.”
