THE SMART RESTAURANT OF THE FUTURE IS POSSIBLE TODAY
Your restaurant requires a lot of internet-connected things to make it hum like a well-oiled machine. There’s your point of sale (POS) and kitchen display systems, your thermometers, fryers, refrigerators and food suppliers. There’s the customer data coming from social media, Yelp, weather apps and more.
Imagine if all of these things connected to mobile-first apps in a unified, secure and seamless platform.
The HotSchedules Internet of Things (IoT) Platform helps restaurants of any size or segment turn big data into real-time insights and actions that increase top-line revenue and reduce bottom-line expenses.
“The IoT market is expected to grow to 26 billion installed units by 2020”
