How Restaurant Technology is Evolving

Restaurant owners are experts at adapting and evolving. Whether it’s for a dinner rush with a 45 minute wait, an unexpected maintenance issue, or even a global pandemic, you know how important it is to stay on your toes. The technology you use in your restaurant also needs to change with the times. 

Gone are the days when having a computer, printer, and credit card machine were all you needed to help your restaurant succeed. Restaurant technology has come a long way, and not only can it help your restaurant thrive, but it can also help give your customers a better dining experience. 

Let’s take a look at how restaurant technology is evolving—and how state-of-the-art platforms, like Adora, can help you stay ahead of the curve: 

Hardware Limitations are a Thing of the Past

Think of it this way—you’d never even consider using an email platform that could only be accessed from certain devices. Why should your restaurant technology be any different? Adora is 100% cloud-based, so you can access your system anytime, anywhere—all you need is an internet connection. 

Not only does using a cloud-based platform give you the freedom to monitor things like sales, inventory, and scheduling from anywhere, but it also means your data is 100% safe and secure. With Adora, constantly worrying about your system crashing is also a thing of the past. 

Customization for You + Your Customers 

POS systems used to be one-size-fits-all. Today, systems like Adora are designed to meet the unique needs of your specific business model—and the needs of your customers. Adora allows for customization at every step of the ordering process. Take a look at how you can make Adora work for you and your customers:

  • Unlimited Menu Options – Adding a special or modifying a menu item used to more trouble than it was worth. Now, changing your menu is a breeze. With just a few clicks, you can add or remove dishes, adjust your prices, or run promotions. 
  • Optimized Ordering Capability – With a quick scan of a QR code or a few taps on a kiosk, customers can order their way. With safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds, these advancements have helped restaurants survive and thrive in the Covid era. 
  • Control at Every Level – Most POS systems weren’t designed to accommodate the needs of franchises. Outdated models fail to give franchise or multi-store owners the features they need to tweak ordering, menu items, and inventory at different locations. Adora’s forward-thinking system gives you control at the store, franchise, or corporate level, so you’ll never be hindered by an old-fashioned system again. 

Modern Kitchens Mean Better Food

Restaurants have used the same technology to handle sending orders to the kitchen for decades, and the kitchen was often an area that didn’t get much help from the technology world. However, as technology moves forward, the benefits of improving BOH processes is clear. Adora is bringing restaurant kitchens up to speed with features like:

  • Orders that print directly to the kitchen—straight from the customer
  • Color coded order timing
  • Automatic order prioritization 

Technology that Delivers on Deliveries 

One aspect of the restaurant business that has evolved significantly is deliveries. Advanced systems can take some of the stress out of sending your food off-premise. Not only does Adora allow for seamless third-party integration, but it also helps you manage your in-house deliveries with options like:

  • Google Map integration
  • Live driver tracking 
  • Route optimization
  • Adjustable delivery zones

You’ll always know the status of every order, so sending out a delivery won’t feel like a gamble. More importantly, your customers will appreciate knowing their food will always arrive fresh and on time! 

A New Way to Handle Logistics 

There’s a lot more to being a restaurateur than just serving great food. Between inventory, scheduling, and payments, dealing with logistics can seem like a full-time job—especially if you’re trying to manage everything on your own. Luckily, technology can help streamline your day-to-day workflow by centralizing your inventory, providing advanced vendor management, and showing you consolidated dashboards and reporting.
