Recruitment & Retention stage a comeback in Catering

Recruitment & Retention stage a comeback in Catering

According to the National Catering Association predict, the restaurants in 2016 will sell 787.2 billion US dollars and employ 14.4 million people in more than 1 million places.  For the information revealed today by the 2016 Catering Industry Forecast, The U.S. Catering industry will continue to be the nation’s second-largest private sector employer, offering career opportunities for 1 in 10 Americans.
“Although the whole economy is moving in the right direction, the commercial environment in 2016 is not without challenges,” said Hudson Riehle, Senior Vice President of Research for the National Catering Association. “following the whole contracting in some labor market, we’re finding that recruitment and retention staging a comeback as a top challenge for catering operators.
Top Catering Industry trends in 2016 include:
Not everything plain sailing. Catering operators will face some headwinds in the 2016 commercial environment. From the pressures of legislative and regulatory and modest  growth of economy to the increase of labor costs and cybersecurity, new and old problems will have challenge in profit margins and chaotic operating procedures.
Labor force is getting weak. Recruitment and retention of staffs will be the biggest challenge for catering operators again, as a strict national labor market means more intense competition with employees in other industries. The labor force population structure is changing to include a greater proportion of older people, while the labor market for young people is shrinking.
Personal business. The catering industry has always been from different backgrounds of the Americans who have the opportunity to achieve and have their own business dreams. The catering industry is the locus of more and more women and ethnic-owned businesses, and many current owners are initially starting their culinary career. Eating places owned by women and ethnic minorities are still growing at a faster rate than the whole industry.
Moderate growth of sales. The catering industry will achieve the seventh consecutive year of real sales growth in 2016. Due to the local commercial environment, a large number of regional changes will continue. Fast-food service sales growth over the long-term trend of growth in sales of table services will also maintain its momentum as well as strong growth in snack and non-alcoholic beverage bars.
The pain of the technological development. The availability of technology choices begins from the novelty of many consumers to expect. In this technologically advanced competition, new systems appear in more places because guests say they want to use. However, two-fifths of consumers believe that technology makes restaurant access and sequencing more complex, suggesting that perhaps not all of these new systems are easy to use. Restaurants will focus on ending this disagreement in the coming year.
Mobile payment was endorsed. Few technologies evolve faster than payment platforms. The security and convenience are being integrated into mobile payment systems, with many wallet applications and devices coming to the market. While most consumers are still shielded about paying for meals by smart phones, more and more people say they will be using – or already in use – when this option is available, the trend is expected to keep its trajectory to 2016.
American Gourmet 2.0 .. Today’s typical restaurant guests are different from typical restaurant guests 20 years ago. In the growing nature of catering, the younger generation has a very complex worldview when refers to food. Catering operators said they had a higher expectation of their dining experience than just two years ago, and focused on everything from regular meals, sustainable development to food procurement and production. Operators will carefully measure how to satisfy these precise tastes without getting too niche or alienating more mature guests.

Three challenges for 4K interactive digital signage

Three challenges for 4K interactive digital signage

Touch sensors are increasingly integrated into 4K interactive digital signage to create immersive interactive visual experience. Know and understand how to overcome the common technical obstacles of 4K interactive digital signage is the key to the success of the installation. The following lists three common challenges to achieve 4K interactive digital signage:
three-challenges-for-4k-interactive-digital-signage
4K displays have a high electronic interference (EMI), so the need for better pixel density of the driver circuit to increase the complexity of the. This can be increased by three to four times the interference with respect to the normal HD display. This interference or noise, so that the touch screen and control electronics is more difficult to identify the surrounding noise. This reduces the signal to noise ratio, but also the real touch identification. In other words, increased interference reduces the accuracy of touch sensing.
An improved touch controller for electronic design and touch detection firmware is necessary to ensure that the integrity of the signal is maintained at a high level. The projected capacitive touch technology (P-CAP) is embedded in the X-Y matrix of the laminated glass substrate using the micro electrodes, and the frequency modulation is used to detect the capacitance change of the conductive electrode. One way to combat EMI is to achieve the touch controller “smart” frequency scanning function. Work frequency 0.7-mhz and 2.2-mhz to identify and avoid the environment “noise”, otherwise it will prevent the detection of touch events.
The most critical issue in the response time of the 4K resolution touch operation is the combination of the UHD display touch screen function. This is a challenge for all touch technology, and now the typical HD display touch screen pixel is about 120 Hz refresh rate. The required control data processing needs a large number of pixels and (> 8 million) in the UHD display means that the latest 4K practical operation in 60Hz or less; this makes it challenging to handle real-time touch events, such as drag on the screen cursor, because the display board processing ability is the background image effectively be refreshed. So the UHD screen mobile touch is like a line, there are traces of the finger than high-definition display obvious, and even the P-CAP touch screen delay will be in the speed of the touch event report.
Of course, this delay in the ordinary watch (no touch) is unknown because the viewer has no reference to measure it’s frame. Dynamic touch applications require drawings or fast objects; however, the delay of the 4K system is obvious compared to the current HD type touch screen.
With the new 4K monitor entering the market, the higher refresh rate and the potential to improve the driving circuit to reduce the EMI, these problems will be reduced. But before this, the influence of the touch controller’s selection and touch application on the user experience should be carefully considered in the UHD display.
Could IOT improve customer experience?

Could IOT improve customer experience?

To define IOT as intelligent interaction between humans and things, the exchange of data is very easy, but to evaluate how and where to play IOT,  what should play, it is a little more difficult within retail customer experience.
Some industry experts think that IOT remains in a hype stage, but haven’t had grabbing obvious traction, as some companies are making a boast of billions of connections.
“It’s happening swiftly, however, it’s a hype,” said Jessica Groopman, who is the independent industry analyst and IOT avisor. Groopman was one of the members of three groups, discussing the IOT applications in real-life during Networld Media Group’s CONNECT Mobile Innovation Summit which held last month in Chicago.
The group in the session was moderated by Trey Courtney who is Mood Media senior VP, product management and delivery, included Kevin Meagher, ROC-Connect’s senior VP of business development, Aaron Noveshen, the one who launched a new quick service concept in May this year, and Starbird, the founder and president of The Culinary Edge.
“ Due to the traction picked up by artificial intelligence and machine learning, IOT still need to put into the mainstream,” noted Groopman. She referred to some interesting statistics: some places connected devices between 50 billion and 200 billion in play, in the future, the ordinary consumers will be taking part in 9 to 23 devices. For now the average is about 3 devices per person.
But Meagher didn’t completely agree on Groopman’s hype point.
With comparing the advent of IOT and mobile phone, “ We don’t realize that the big game-changer happening and spreading to daily things,” he said.
“Consumer’s expectation not only have all devices connected will drive adoption, but also the launch of meaningful services,” he said.
In the field of food service, IOT can be a distinguisher, noted Noveshen, as it could finally replace the drive-thru option and all the anxiety occurred by drive-thru ordering experience.
He noted: “This is why Starbird is trying to eliminate, Starbucks is doing well with its easy App and capabilities of order ahead.”
Groopman thinks the value of IOT is higher for companies and organizations in the hospitality and retail industry than for end users.
She said : “We have to improve the value on consumer side, but that will need some time,” noted Meagher.
He said : “It needs to be wrapped in something valuable,” “no one has hit a home run. We’re just at the tip of the iceberg,” he added.
Meagher, is the person who led the IOT charge for LOWES several yeas ago describes that IOT today as the beginning of avalanche.
He said: “ As it push out it will be adopting with smartphone through the same barriers, and there will happen some serious casualties.”
The group referred to several IOT strategies which play successful, for example, Amazon and its focus on smart home, Lowe and its big investment and automotive industry with connected cars. Groopman also referred to Disney as a successful IOT.
She acknowledge: “They are doing a lot of right things, but for it’s deep pockets,” The key of Disney is its strategy being all about the consumer and the journey, she added.
She said: “It is making use of information to optimize workflow, handle and set up an experience which will be driving loyalty.”
Noveshen pointed out that kind of consumer value is the key for successful IOT.
He said: “anything affects your emotions(for example home security) is really a good value and a game changer,” His point was repeated by Meagher.
He said: “ It’s about a peace of mind,” and pointed out that is why home security has been an early planting ground for IOT technology.
With regarding to some challenges ahead for IOT applications, including some misconceptions. One of them is, it is a huge technology which really hard to deploy.
But those are not problems, according to the group of experts.
Meagher said:“ The problem today is commercial model.” Groopman agreed and pointed out that the problem of technology is much less hurdles than a few years ago.
She said:“ for now it is much more evolution than revolution, how we solve problem would be nothing to do with competitors.”
Video Wall – Play an important role in the future

Video Wall – Play an important role in the future

The lobby of the hotelis the idea place for people to gather and wait as it’s a high traffic areas-compelling and emotionally setting digital signage. The lobby also is a place to showcase and establish the hotel brand.

The answer for the hotel industry is the video wall – a visually appealing solution that captures the attention of large and small public spaces and can serve as an important starting point for long-term digital engagement with customers

The video wall can be a unique piece of art that will certainly grab the attention of the guests. Whether it is used to promote the hotel brand, set the tone of space, and promote local attractions or income-generating advertising, which is a valuable investment from the beginning will bring the return of perceived brand value.

This article will explore some specific hotel use cases, as well as important things to consider when looking at the video wall.

The design and uniqueness are the key factors in the hotel, and additional efforts are made to ensure that guests get a good first impression. Because customers want the video wall is unique and distinctive. Video wall solutions that allow customers the flexibility to deploy either traditional, grid or art, mosaic-style video walls, angled displays as an innovative, unconventional layout – the ideal hotel is unusual.

Another great role of the video wall  is to inform the guests the events of the hotel or nearby , but also to promote the local tourism and advertising industry. They can also help guests to connect with social media , or invite them to share their experiences or display feeds directly on the video wall. In addition, the video wall can be used as a sales tool to increase sales of the hotel’s best rooms or sell tickets to local attractions

Factors need to consider when install a video wall

The video wall is to complement the space, while visually attracting the attention of the audience. Careful planning is very important

First, consider the characteristics of the area. Space and surrounding areas will determine the size of the video wall. If you do anything except basic, you have to invest in a video wall controller. Now have the cost-effective options for video wall controllers , using PC and network architectures to reduce overall costs

The second thing need to consider is the type of video wall that best fits the space. The options include some prominent, such as artistic, mosaic-style video walls, or more classic, traditional grid video walls (with a typical depth-width ratio), including streamlined, third-party content plays an important role

Unless it is part of a new building or major renovation, otherwise you need to consider how to get the power and data to connect to the monitor. Most of what you need to drive your video wall (for example, a video wall controller) can be located in the server room. But you need to power and data connections for the display. In addition to the actual monitor, the video wall needs to be mounted to the wall and cable to which they are secured.

The lobby may the most important hotel room, a video wall, not only set a great first impression tone, it also keeps informing guests information, while providing a visual experience to complement the hotel brand. The Video Wall is conducive to unifying the hotel’s digital experience and creating a valuable brand and advertising center in the hotel’s highest traffic areas.
Airport industry is changed digital dynamic pathfinding

Airport industry is changed digital dynamic pathfinding

Anyone can experience the feeling of panic during the trip, when you don’t know where to go.Realize that there’s no time to waste, and at the same time is more of a frustration in boundless and indistinct in the airport luggage.

Is conform to continue to rely on the static customer service pavilion, let the customer to pass the airport navigation through unprecedented, update, combined with digital signage, high ceilings, modern design.

digital-dynamic-pathfinding1

Static digital signage
Although static sign may be part of the landscape at the airport, but involves the pathfinding, digital sign compared with static sign can not.Printed maps and static sign can provide help in electricity or electronic fault, but the content is not updated in time or fail to provide enough detailed information, is not convenient to use.

Even if no other digital signage, almost every airport have their flight information display system (FIDS) through some form of digital signage.This flight information sharing system in real time for passengers to arrival and departure of the latest announcement, usually displayed on the TV screen or computer system to control mechanical plate.

In addition to FIDS, digital sign is often placed in the whole airport navigation to help passengers, at the same time to attract passengers will usually display near the shops and restaurants.

Using the interactive nature of the digital signage can vary at the airport.Dynamic digital signage can provide direction for passengers, for example, or to determine the destination.With dynamic digital signage, airport to be able to change information at any time, but usually don’t provide personalized route.Some, however, USES the interactive display, it can provide the passengers’ starting point and destination, and in some cases, access to information on the smart phone can know their information at the same time, but is usually determined by the complexity of the airport.

Generally speaking, interactive and non-interactive digital identity is in order to improve passenger experience and provides the latest and accurate information.

digital-dynamic-pathfinding2

Improving passenger experience
In the tourist season, the number of each airport will increase, leading to more passengers lost frustrated at the airport.Don’t fly often, such as those to visit relatives or colleges spring – breakers, etc., will not be as frequent business travelers are familiar with the airport layout, there will be can’t find the direction and difficult time.

Interactive digital signage can help reduce this aspect.For example, to accommodate more than 450000 people a year, San Francisco international airport to install interactive touch screen search options to find their best route for passengers.At the same time, passengers can search to the various categories, such as airlines, catering, shopping, ground traffic and to do.Different choices for passengers, at the same time will provide alternative suggestion route navigation.

Airport use the another advantage of digital display is to show the real time information.For example, if there is a corridor traffic block in the construction of the airport, can display the update line help passengers.In addition, digital signage can facilitate the passengers in case of an emergency this is one of the most important features of digital signage.Whether fire or serious evacuation, airport security can make use of digital signage notice where passengers directly or where can I find the nearest exit.

Better for the business
Digital signage can not only help passengers pathfinding, it is also the airport facilities have good business.The airport staff are no longer provide direction key personnel;Passengers can turn to the interactive display accurate search, the airport staff can be more focus on their job responsibilities, they can maximize the allocation of time.Interactive display provides the function of the search direction, also can ensure the security responsibility to protect the safety of the airport without interference.

Airport businesses can also benefit from the pathfinding digital signage.The display can be at the airport, the shops and restaurants promotion customer information sharing, and to provide coupons.Interactive display for the enterprise provides a reservation for restaurant reservations and waiting time and easy to obtain more detailed message.Digital signage also reduced the renewal, print, or replace static signs of any such charge.

digital-dynamic-pathfinding3

New development of the industry
Digital signage is to alleviate the airport huge demand.Guidance from the static to the dynamic transformation is the airport industry in the developing and changing.Due to the passenger demand change and development, so this is the pathfinding guide dynamic digital sign a new development direction.

Digital signage in a new way to attract you

Digital signage in a new way to attract you

In an age of instant communication and entertainment is the age of customers expect, retailers are rapidly to the development of digital signage.
The most powerful benefits of digital sign is that it can be to retailers for real-time interaction and communication, can get potential customers in advance Attention and convey store broadcast information.With today’s technology, the store manager can send personalized discounts to nearby Clients, and can capture the valuable customer information.
The growing market
According to MRRSE market research company, in 2013 retail digital signage in a $6 billion market, and now in advance Meter by 2018 will reach $23 billion, and the client’s preference is to improve the user interface and reduce prices increase retail number Card usage.
“We are visual animals, we experience our world through vision and touch,” Alan sign method’s digital connection technology Advanced business solutions group development commissioner said.
Mark is very value of retail enterprises.Fedex, one study found that 76% of consumers is never visit before entering the shop
Marks its stores, 75% of consumers from others that the store logo, 68% of people will buy the goods or entering it
The store consumption, because was attracted by its logo.
Digital signage relative to the static can better capture the customer’s attention, but research suggests that they are more effective promotion project 34% of the process.
Digital signage has reduced corporate clients such as grocery stores and Banks queued up for the helpless.In the survey showed that 84% of consumers think For the digital signage display let wait is time pass more quickly, and 85% of consumers think digital signage display screen In a more interesting and pleasant to watch.
Function more selective
Companies have many choose to implement a digital signage, are currently in use and even some shops will use innovative ways:

Digital Signage in Repast casual Industry: giving people well customer experience and convenience

Digital Signage in Repast casual Industry: giving people well customer experience and convenience

In the repast casual industry, many famous restaurants are starting to adopt the technologies of Kiosks and digital signage, with much faster pace. For example, McDonald’s has deployed “ Create your own taste” kiosk at many different locations, which allowed customers to make their own Hangburgers. Restaurants in casual industry are also beginning to let many suppliers to see the benefits of deploying indoor and outdoor technologies, such as Information Kiosks and Digital signage.

For example, the restaurant chain of Johnny Rockets, also deployed touchscreen kiosks,video walls and a digital board menu at its new business chain. Johnny Rockets, the company is using these technologies alongside simple outfits for employees to create a “Millennial-Friendly environment”.This story reveals a key element to deploy tools ,such as digital signage; these kiosk need to bring a good customers experience for people.“It is no longer just changing your static menu to a digital sign with moving pictures,”Jodi Wallace said in an interview, the chief marketing officer, Acrelec American formally known as HyperActive Technologies. ” It is about to have a strategic view of the entire customers’ interaction and how to integrate all the potential customer touch points( the drive thru, indoor environment, mobile ordering, customer loyalty,website and social media/marketing campaigns) to make a stellar customer experience.”

digital-signage-in-repast-casual-industry

Indoor signage

Indoor digital signage menus are one of the important key in digital signage applications at casual environments. People can look at those back-lit menus to get s good idea of what they want to order. However, these development and deployment are “ only the tip of the digital iceberg,” according to Wallace.“ If you want to get someone’s attention and attract them to have interesting in your menu. The menu must be dynamic with attractive sight.Burgers have to sizzle, hot coffee has to be steamed, chocolate has to be melted over the donut,” Wallace said.

Casual Restaurant can also use Digital signage to promote certain items or update product information to give people more dynamic experience.
“ Restaurant can bring their menus to have life, placing the attention on where they want. They can promote a new menu item, and even schedule for a certain daypart,” Wallace said. “ Digital menus help restaurant to change items easily, prices calories-all of that from one location .”

Outdoor signage

In the front of outdoor, digital signage can help to provide more focused menu’s experience for casual drive-thrus. For Traditional monitor , restaurants had no choice to display the whole menu from breakfast to dinner. But digital signage can help people to solve this matter; Tegan Worral, marketing coordinator of VC Media & Design said in a blog.

“ Digital menu can be adjusted and scheduled according to the time of whole day. For example, Breakfast menu can be scheduled to display from 5am to 11am; was being replaced by the remainder of all-day, which has been promoted to one day,” Worral wrote. “ Meanwhile it can also provide greater flexibility for promotions; and help to improve the problem of visually in menu board , which can speed-up order-taking and enhance the accuracy of order.

Kiosks

Self-odered kiosks can offer easy access channel to visit menus, start-using individually order, reduce lines. But, if you want to work efficiently, need to set up some important elements during playing. If many people order food via digital kiosk, the restaurant need to have suitable number of employees to meet the requirements. If too many peoples order from it, it will cause the service slowly. Therefore, it will influence customer’ s experience in it.

The kiosk also need a clear menu structure for people to visit easily.No one wants to go through ten pages, just to get their favorite items. Interactive kiosk also need a well touch panel to assure the accuracy of order.

The key element

The key element, whether for digital signage or information kiosk, it is fixed solutions for improving customer’s experience. To achieve this point, you need to contact the supplier to provide “ Hardware, Software and Service.” In technical platform, all jobs work together to manager digital device, software and content .” according to Wallace reported.

Our goal is to make the customer happy, not to deploy a fancy device.
