Being More High Tech For Service And Efficiency

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013 by

I was surprised today as I went to this sushi buffet with a few people. I have been to these types of places before and usually how it works is you are either given a menu to check off which dishes you want or a waitress/waiter would write the order down on paper and then give it o the kitchen to prepare. In this situation though the person came out with a tablet of sort and started punching in orders which immediately got sent it to the kitchen. The funny thing was for some basic items like the soup or salads they were literally coming out to the table before the entire order was even complete.

Kind of makes you wonder why more places aren’t trying to transition to this type of system as I can only imagine that you will eventually save money as well from having to use all that paper and ink even though the system may cost more initially. In some ways I am inclined to say it’s more about people being too traditional as it is the only way it would work kind of thing.
