Why Interactive Menus Work Better Than Print Menus

December 6, 2018

What’s one annoyance when attending a restaurant? Viewing an old menu, where half of the items listed are no longer being served. Indeed, there is a way to get around this: using an interactive menu — but what are some other benefits one can provide? Let us explain:

Ordering is a Breeze

When the holiday season rolls around, it sometimes seems like a challenge to be fully staffed at all times. Although this might be a burden, an interactive menu will be the perfect solution to continue to stay afloat.

When you have a custom touch screen display installed by Apollo, you’ll be able to transform it into an interactive menu that will let patrons place their orders on the screen, as soon as they enter — which will even let them check-out on their own. Then, the only thing you’ll have to take care of it fulfilling the order, delivering the food to the patron.

Keep it Entertaining

Sometimes, a restaurant can lose flair if it’s been around for quite some time. However, if you have a custom, interactive display installed, then you might be able to divert some attention back into your eatery!

One of the best ways to do this is to throw some animations or videos into your menu, during the programming stage. This will not only keep your current audience’s attention, but it will also attract an even more significant following based on adding that element of fun.

Save Money

One of the most significant benefits of an interactive menu? It helps save money in the long run. Granted, it might seem like a wise investment to get professionally printed menus — but think about how many times you’ll have to re-print once a special is removed.

When you opt-in for a custom touchscreen display from Apollo, you’ll be able to change your menu at any time — which is a win-win situation for any restaurateur that’s looking to save some funds. Additionally, our systems are energy efficient and don’t use more power than what’s needed (which is always a plus).
