The Mobile Transformation of Restaurant OperationsKurt Pimentel
We are excited to share our new white paper, transforming restaurant operations. Our development focus here at EZFORMS over the past several years has been to create a new standard for checklist and mobile audit solutions for the enterprise. EZFORMS has experienced tremendous growth and we believe that our philosophy for mobile enterprise platform development could best be shared via white paper. While this paper addresses the great opportunities for mobile apps in the back of the house for restaurants, our solution has broad application across all facets of a restaurant. Below is a small excerpt from the white paper on how our solution is transforming restaurant operations.
Back of the House (BOH)
Enterprise app solutions developed specifically for mobile platforms are the next frontier for food service providers. Fast casual and quick-serve restaurant companies have begun to use tablets or bring your own device (BYOD) to automate HACCP compliance across their locations, replacing paper ledgers at individual stores with tablet-based mobile forms apps that automate and store details such as freezer, food temperatures and cleaning schedules. These restaurant checklist apps can also send real-time alerts when an unexpected variance is detected to store managers and headquarters staff to allow for real, or near real-time proactive response to variances.
Tablet and “phablet”-based apps can also provide tremendous flexibility in developing customized forms to address all manner of managerial tasks, such as employee – customer incident reports and assignment of tasks a.k.a. follow-ups to address critical issues. Cloud-based enterprise apps combined with mobile devices facilitate sharing among geographically dispersed restaurant managers, regional managers, and the corporate headquarters, creating a de facto interactive decision-support tool that can leverage critical historical and real-time data to improve decision making.
