Restaurant Industry Embraces Apps and Mobile Technology to Enhance Service and Efficiency

Today, the phrase “there’s an app for that” can be applied to just about any personal or business activity. With a relatively low cost of entry and tremendous ease of use, it’s no wonder that businesses of all kinds have embraced apps and mobile technology as a way to stay competitive, growing and profitable.

Like many businesses, restaurants thrive on efficiency and guest satisfaction. So it should come as no surprise that more and more restaurants are eyeing apps as an alternative or supplement to traditional guest paging, server paging, and table management systems.

In response to the demand, technology companies are busy creating and releasing apps for iOS and Android devices that allow users to seat guests more efficiently, deliver food faster, and turn tables more quickly than ever before. Typically, all the restaurant needs to take advantage of the technology is an iPad/tablet, laptop or computer with a web browser and Internet access.
