Cloud-Based Digital Menu Boards Use Samsung Internet TV's

Digital Menu Me has begun to install its digital menu boards in restaurants alongside Revel Systems iPad Point of Sale system for restaurants. With the power of Cloud-based technology, Digital Menu Me and Revel Systems restaurant POS can talk to one another and communicate data between each other.

Managing a restaurant requires multiple systems to work together as a unit – from inventory to employee schedules to serving customers. If those systems break down because of a delay in communication, it becomes difficult to provide quality customer service.

Imagine that a restaurant is serving a tilapia dish for their dinner special. By nine o’clock, the kitchen notifies one of the waitresses that they’ve run out of tilapia. However, the waitress gets distracted and forgets to tell the rest of the wait staff. Meanwhile, customers are continuing to place orders for the tilapia special, only to be told that the restaurant has run out. Not only are the customers not able to order the dinner they want, but now their service has been delayed.

With a Cloud-based system utilizing a Digital Menu Me technology, along with Revel systems Point of Sale System, the digital menu boards can automatically pull the menu in from the POS system whenever it is updated.

The Digital Menu Me systems cost $2,000 compared to the $4,000+ cost of other systems on the market today and because it is cloud-based, it can easily connect with systems already used by restaurants. Samsung 40-inch Internet enabled TV allows Digital Menu Me to mount the TV and plug it into the internet (no extra equipment.) In addition, Digital Menu Me can dispatch installers anywhere in the country, who can mount and install the system for $299. Digital Menu Me is utilizing Samsung’s App technology to power the digital menu board thus eliminating an extra piece of hardware to manage.
