Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, an industry
leader in food services technology, today announced it will showcase its
latest integrated technology solutions for restaurants at the National
Restaurant Association (NRA) Show in Chicago, IL (booth #2024).
Panasonic’s easily scalable, end-to-end solutions were designed to
enhance business efficiency and improve customer experiences, and
incorporate a wide variety of Panasonic hardware including POS
workstations, wireless drive-thru headsets, handheld tablets for line
busting and mobile POS and digital signage.
“As technology convergence continues throughout the industry, 2014 will
be the year that restaurant operators fully adopt technology solutions
throughout their operations to connect data to customers, employees and
managers not only to create a top-notch customer experience, but also to
increase sales and boost employee productivity,” said Jeff Pinc,
Director – Food Services, Panasonic System Communications Company of
North America. “At Panasonic, we provide operators with a one-stop shop
for complete, reliable food services technology solutions for their
entire restaurants from the drive-thru all the way to the kitchen.”
The company’s exhibit will showcase Panasonic POS units, including the
Panasonic Stingray Envo POS Workstation and Lite-Ray POS Workstation,
which offer QSRs stationary solutions that are reliable and
cost-efficient with virtually unlimited mounting options. POS systems
equipped with analytics software can scan data to track orders, make
menu changes, monitor inventory, reorder supplies and flag purchases of
Digital Signage Solutions
Additionally, Panasonic digital menu boards, easier and quicker to
maintain than their static counterparts, bring a bright and durable
solution that allow for real-time remote updating and add to a
restaurant’s overall ambiance.
It’s common knowledge that drive-thrus make up a majority of sales for
QSRs. For this reason, it’s crucial that drive-thrus are optimized to
ensure efficiencies and a high level of customer service. Panasonic
drive-thru solutions, including Panasonic Toughpad tablets for line
busting, Attune II drive thru communication systems and outdoor digital
menu boards such as the fully-rugged TH-LFX60U LCD display, will
demonstrate how operators can effectively reduce order errors and
improve the customer experience, thus encouraging repeat business and
helping to maximize sales.
Safety of employees and customers is a top priority for any restaurant.
Panasonic will demonstrate how surveillance solutions can reduce
accidents, prevent fraudulent lawsuits and also provide marketing
analytics. At the show, Panasonic will demonstrate how QSRs can utilize
i-PRO SmartHD™ security cameras with facial recognition and matching
technologies to analyze visual information, such as relative age and
gender, and throughput the data to strategically placed digital displays
to target customers with customized messaging. Additionally, with these
IP-based cameras, managers can monitor surveillance feeds from virtually
anywhere with an internet connection via a Toughpad® tablet.
Panasonic will also showcase its industry-leading line of commercial
appliances including a new commercial vacuum series, rice cookers,
steamers and microwave ovens, all boasting an array of features that
make food preparation fast, easy and efficient. Built with Inverter
technology, these microwaves ensure food will be cooked evenly and
quickly while maintaining nutrient content.
Attendees are encouraged to visit the Panasonic booth (#2024) to see
live demos of front counter, drive-thru, line-busting and surveillance
