Revitalize Your Business: Three Reasons to Refresh Your Restaurant Hardware
Change is difficult, but it’s a necessary part of running a successful business. For restaurants, this means refreshing hardware as it begins to age, or your needs change as you grow. But why reinvent the wheel? Aside from the benefits of updated technology (digital displays paired with ConnectSmart® Kitchen mean less paper flying around the kitchen,) there are many different reasons to update your kitchen hardware:
Simpler, Faster Systems
Generally speaking, newer hardware just runs faster. This means less time waiting for credit cards to go through, orders to show up, and less time spent in kitchen chaos. Making sure to conduct regular upgrades can help your business put its best foot forward, every time.
In addition to the benefit of less waiting, new hardware tends to be simpler. Newer systems are typically made to integrate seamlessly with a system you already have, like your POS system, an app on your phone, or countless others. Streamlining hardware to work together means less time spent training different systems, and more time spent serving your guests.
Less Time on the Phone with Support
While we have the best support team out there, we know there are better things for you to be doing than sitting on the phone with them, no matter how much we love hearing from you! Updated hardware malfunctions less frequently, in turn, saving time and money lost by your managers fixing last-minute issues.
Improve Employee Retention
According to FSR Magazine, “As operators look for every advantage to drive growth while recovering from pandemic-related disruption, restaurant technology updates are picking up steam again. These transitions from manual processes to technology-driven ones can help you maintain margins in an ever-more competitive world.”
In a time where employee retention is more difficult than ever, any advantage in your business’s corner is worth your time.
