Touchmenu, an innovative new system that allows restaurants to increase sales, expedite table turns and promote impulse purchasing, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com this morning. This new technology not only benefits restaurant owners but customers as well, giving them the freedom to order and pay directly from the tablet at their discretion.
Using the tablet, restaurant guests can browse professional quality photos of the entire menu (instead of the select few that make the cut on paper menus), split checks by simple ‘drag-and-drop’, play interactive games, and browse entertainment ideas in their area. All this, and more, can be done from the comfort of their table without having to wait or ask for assistance. If help is needed guests can press the ‘call server’ button for refills, cleanups, or even just to shoot the breeze.
Touchmenu tablets are expected to increase restaurant sales by up to 15% through impulse ordering, and personalized upsell strategies. While the tablets are stylish and inviting, they are practical too. Offering all-day battery life, easy cleaning surfaces, and robust construction make this puppy a no-brainer for restaurant owners. Customers will be happier, which will result in higher tips and positive feedback on site such as Yelp and UrbanSpoon.
People are already excited about the option of having tablets to order and pay with. Those that were interviewed said things like:
"I like the idea of having a tablet at the table, so that you can take your time and order without feeling stressed by a waiting waiter."
"I would like it very much if the tablet had a photo of the food so I could see what I was ordering. And nutritional info and ingredients.”
This innovation is just what the restaurant industry needs right now to stand out in the fast pace of our world today. Everything around us is modernizing more and more each day. In the last five years we've seen movie rentals go digital, mobile internet become commonplace, life experiences can be shared worldwide through social networking, and touchscreen devices are in the hands of children as young as two. We are an ever changing people. We long for innovation. As our lives get busier we expect things to move faster.
