How can self-service systems help you attract and retain customers?

Self-service kiosks are changing the way we dine. By giving customers the power to take control of their dining experience, self-service kiosks can help restaurants improve customer satisfaction, increase efficiency, and boost profits. Let’s explore how integrating self-service technology can attract and retain customers in your restaurant. 

1. Enhance customer control with self-service kiosks 

Self-service kiosks can help restaurants improve customer satisfaction by reducing wait times and giving customers more control over their dining experience. Customers can use self-service kiosks to browse the menu, place their orders, and pay for their meals at their own pace. According to a Forbes article, more than 65% of customers said they would visit a restaurant more often if self-service kiosks were offered. This suggests that self-service kiosks are becoming increasingly popular with customers, and restaurants that offer them stand to gain a competitive advantage.[1]  

2. Improving efficiency with Table-Kiosks 

Table kiosks are a type of self-service system that is gaining popularity in restaurants due to their ability to improve efficiency. Table kiosks allow customers to browse the menu, place orders, and even pay their bills, all from the comfort of their table.  

One of the main benefits of table kiosks is that they can reduce wait times. Customers can place their orders immediately after they are seated, without having to wait for a server to come over. This can be especially beneficial during busy periods. 

Table kiosks can also help to improve order accuracy. Customers can enter their orders directly into the kiosk, which reduces the risk of errors. Additionally, table kiosks can provide customers with a visual representation of their order, which can help to ensure that they are getting exactly what they want. 

Maximized efficiency in your restaurant

Increase sales with a kiosk that offers fast ordering, efficiency, and customer satisfaction.

3. Enhancing customer loyalty 

By offering self-service options, restaurants can not only attract new customers but also enhance the loyalty of their existing ones. A study by Tillster found that if the line length is longer than four people, customers would prefer to order from a self-service kiosk rather than a cashier.[2] This means that customers are increasingly looking for convenient and efficient ways to order their food. 

In addition to reducing wait times, self-service options can also help to improve the customer experience in many other ways. For example, self-service kiosks can allow customers to customize their orders to their exact liking, and they can also provide customers with more information about the menu items. This can help customers to make better choices and have a more enjoyable dining experience. 

When customers have a positive dining experience, they are more likely to return and recommend the restaurant to others. This can lead to increased customer loyalty and repeat business.
