Shaping the Intelligent Restaurant of Tomorrow

Fine dining establishments, quick-service locations, pizza parlors, delis, coffee shops—there is really no end to the variety in terms of format, cuisine, price point, and service levels. Today’s owners and operators are leveraging technology to better manage and market their operations, increase inventory efficiencies, and improve cash flow and revenues, all while improving their customer experiences.

Though investments in traditional and mobile point-of-sale (POS and mPOS) systems lead the way, restaurants also rely on back-office systems, networking, and security in addition to increasing their investments in the new digital touchpoints. These touchpoints are shaping the intelligent restaurant of tomorrow: POS, digital signage, digital security, enhanced storage, and more.

If you view the POS system as your entry into technology applications and want to deploy small-scale digital signage, security and surveillance solutions, and network-attached storage (NAS) for backup and recovery, consider an entry-level solution. This may have a traditional POS or mPOS, one or two interactive touch screens with still imagery and content, a basic content management and digital security system, and in-band management capabilities.


If you have begun leveraging technology as a strategic business practice, have multiple locations, or would like to integrate other functionalities like inventory and order management, consider upgrading your components to a mainstream solution. This could include interactivity on multiple displays, more touchpoints from signage and kiosks to POS and mPOS, digital security and surveillance, rich-media content and audience analytics, as well as remote management capabilities.

High-End or Advanced Users

An integrated high-end solution is perfect for the business owner with many locations, a complex inventory and order management system, and an understanding of how technology can give their business a competitive advantage. This could include back-office integration, multi-location networking, support for enhanced or personalized customer service, and integration with advanced systems such as digital signage, security, and of course mobility. Advanced users will want to know that they are investing in a flexible, scalable solution that can grow with their business.
Consider easy and effective campaign management tools in Intel® Retail Client Manager (Intel® RCM), the out-of-band remote management capabilities via Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT)1, and the audience metrics and analytics that are possible with Intel® Audience Impression Metrics Suite (Intel® AIM Suite).
