Bringing a Unified Experience to the Modern Restaurant

There’s an old saying that goes, “You can’t do it all and do it well.” And generally, that seems to hold true.   

But what happens when you take “it all” and make it just one thing? Or at least, have “it all” worked together so well that the experience becomes unified?

If you have followed PAR Technology over the past several months, you may have heard about the company moving towards building a Unified Experience of all facets of the modern restaurant experience.

A Unified Experience in the restaurant landscape refers to having all of the technology needed to support a modern restaurant seamlessly integrating to offer a frictionless experience for all parties involved (i.e., restaurant, employees, and guests).

Stress less about restaurant technology maintenance with PAR Infinity™

Maintaining an up-to-date tech stack can be a hassle for restaurants, retail, convenience, and entertainment brands. Nonetheless, this task is necessary to keep pace with the competition and customer demand as well as deliver the ideal staff and customer experience. According to a recent survey, 95% of restaurant owners say using technology improves the overall efficiency of their restaurant. However, managing outdated technology presents large up-front costs that reduce the capital for brands to grow and innovate as well as cause downtime that creates a poor guest experience which inevitably leads to lost revenue. Hospitality Technology’s 2021 Restaurant Technology Study found that the average restaurant IT budget is 2% of revenue and 54% of that budget goes to maintaining existing solutions. Restaurant, retail, convenience, and entertainment operations do not possess the technical resources, expertise, or desire to manage their technology and need solutions designed for the present but ready for the future.
