Advance QSR Solutions with Vision AI
Improve performance, profits, and customer experience with specialized automated vision systems
Consumer Tastes are Changing,
QSRs can Adapt with Computer Vision
Quick Service Restaurant customers are shifting from in-store experiences to drive-thru, pick up, and delivery services more rapidly than ever. This requires a change in operations. 70% of QSR operators report a shortage in staff – Computer Vision (CV) helps solve these challenges.
Reduce Wait Times
Average wait times for drive-thru customers increased by almost 1 minute since 2019. CV systems with AI provide real-time visual data and analytics to improve operations and manage customer expectations. Improve monitoring of:
- Number of vehicles in queue
- Vehicles at each stage of the process
- Estimated wait times
- Vehicles leaving the process
Analyze Restaurant Traffic Flows
Improve resource allocation by monitoring and analyzing employee and customer traffic patterns to predict and reduce bottlenecks.
- Number of customers at counter
- Movement throughout dining areas
- Staff activity in the kitchen and dining areas
- Trigger management notifications when needed
Computer Vision simplifies inventory management by ensuring ingredients are always available and within freshness guidelines.
- Reduce food waste
- Track freshness
- Ensure quality
Ensure Quality & Consistency
Maintain food consistency by ensuring meals are prepared to standards and that all safety and health guidelines are followed, helping to improve brand image.
- Reduce waste
- Monitor compliance
- Improve order accuracy
CV helps QSRs address a range of challenges related to customer satisfaction and operational efficiency by helping improve drive-thru services, customer experience and maintaining high performing kitchens, often with less staff.
- Increase efficiency
- Deliver exceptional customer experiences
- Reduce errors
- Improve operation processes
“CV is transforming the QSR industry, enabling businesses to automate repetitive tasks and improve operational efficiency. By leveraging machine learning algorithms, QSRs can analyze vast amounts of data and gain insights that can help them optimize their operations and improve the customer experience.”
