Digital Menus – Overhyped or Beneficial

Digital menus are at the cutting-edge of restaurant technology, but not everyone is on board. Currently a heavily debated topic, digital menus can be seen as overhyped. We are here to tell you that they’re extremely beneficial – not only are you getting a stylish improvement to your restaurant, you’ll notice improved sales and efficiency. In fact, if your restaurant hasn’t made the switch to digital, now is the time!

Here’s why we know that digital menus are beneficial for any restaurant.

Cost Savings

Digital menus are proven to bring cost savings to restaurants, which is possibly their biggest benefit. With one up front investment you can drastically reduce your printing costs over the life of your business – you’d be shocked how much a business can spend each year with simple menu changes. With each minor change on the menu, an entirely new set has to be printed.

Not only will you notice significant cost savings over the life of your business, you’ll recoup your initial investment very quickly – in fact, businesses recoup their investment in an average of 12 months after the purchase. Everything after the cost recoup is pure savings, which means more money for the restaurant. Digital menus are proven to bring cost savings to restaurants, which is possibly their biggest benefit.

Increased Sales

Not only will digital menus save you money on reprinting your paper menus with every menu change, they’re going to increase your sales overall. Customers like having control of what they order and when they can order it – with the entire menu at their fingertips, customers are more likely to order more than what they would with a traditional paper menu.

Restaurants that have already made the switch to digital menus have noticed significant increases in their sales – if your restaurant is looking for a way to boost sales, digital menus may be the answer. With eye-catching displays and easy access to the entire menu, customers are going to enjoy the convenience of ordering right from the menu, translating into more revenue per customer.

Improved Efficiency

Another fantastic benefit of digital menus is that they improve the efficiency of your entire restaurant organisation. The easy to navigate menus make ordering clear and seamless, which means less mistakes by the time the order reaches the kitchen. Less mistakes means happier customers, and happier customers are repeat customers.

Customers can easily review and edit their orders right from the touch screen on their table to ensure accuracy. The order is sent straight to the kitchen, meaning no more mistakes. The digital menu system can also automatically track orders, trends, and useful data analytics for your restaurant.
