Post-Covid-Digital-Signage-Trends für QSRs

Post-Covid-Digital-Signage-Trends für QSRs

Covid-19 has severely impacted the quick service restaurant industry but many QSR chains that thrived during this period had heavily invested in outdoor Digital Signage and AI-driven computer vision technologies. These technologies have become more important and we predict they will continue to play an even greater role as QSR chains adapt to the new normal.

Seien Sie auf kleinere Essbereiche vorbereitet

Restaurant space planning will be very important as more guests embrace off-site dining. Many QSR brands are planning for smaller dining areas as they expand their drive-through capacity to deal with more off-site dining. With food delivery services becoming more popular, dedicated delivery pick-up areas are also being planned. These are great opportunities for digitalen Menütafeln und Digital Signage im Außenbereich.

For example, digital screens can inform visitors of current health and safety protocols or announce when take-out orders are ready for pick-up. In a post-Covid world, expect to see Digital Signage deployed in a much more targeted way.

Innovation wird der Schlüssel sein

Many QSRs are expanding their take-out capacity by doubling or tripling the number of drive-through lanes and pick-up windows. To reduce wait times, restaurant chains are investing in mobile apps so they can have orders ready by the time guests show up. These solutions rely on GPS-enabled apps that send location data to each store. As guests get closer to their designated restaurant, orders are processed, and electronic payments are collected for a contactless experience. By linking mobile app data to outdoor digital signage displays, QSR operators can offer personalized greetings relevant parking information.

AI-enhanced computer vision software products are also being adapted to optimize the drive-through experience. Navori’s AQUAJI Marketing Analytics-Software can scan and recognize vehicles as they enter a restaurant’s parking lot. Once recognized, cars are redirected to specific drive-through lanes or pick-up windows where orders are waiting.

Computer vision software can monitor the length of drive-through queues, track each vehicle’s dwell time, and send alerts to management so they can assign more resources to speed up order processing. Efficient drive-through order processing is fast becoming essential to every restaurant’s success.

Erweiterung des Restaurants im Außenbereich

Digitale Beschilderung im Außenbereich screens are already a mainstay for many QSR chains, and we expect their use will continue to grow post-pandemic. Outdoor digital signage and computer vision analytics can help in many areas of the business:

  • Überwachen und verwalten Sie Park- und Drive-Through-Slots.
  • Reduzieren Sie Wartezeiten.
  • Leiten Sie Gäste und Lieferdienste zum richtigen Abholbereich.
  • Bestellpositionen bestätigen.
  • Schlagen Sie Beilagen und Getränkeoptionen basierend auf der Zusammensetzung der Bestellung vor.
  • Promote higher-margin items on drive-through digitalen Menütafeln.
  • Bestellnummern zur Abholung anzeigen.
  • Kündigen Sie Gesundheits- und Sicherheitsprotokolle für jeden Standort an.
  • Improve the customer experience.

Die Reise des Gastes zu verstehen ist wichtiger denn je

With smaller indoor dining areas and rapidly changing guest behavior, it pays to understand your customers.

Digitale Speisekarten paired with computer vision technology can play an important role in identifying trends and responding to changes effectively. Strategically placed cameras can capture information used to identify repeat customers or read automobile license plates and adapt menu offerings based on each guest’s profile.

Digital menu boards and outdoor signage are no longer exclusive to multinational restaurant chains. Today, independent chains and even individual restaurants can afford to invest in digital signage and computer vision technologies such as Navori Labs’ mature and erschwingliche Softwarelösungen.
