But a lack of time and resources doesn’t eliminate the need to keep up with tech, meet customer expectations, and future-proof your business to maintain a competitive edge. 

How to Elevate Your QSR Brand with Technology 

In this blog, we’ll cover ways to simplify keeping up with technology in the QSR space. We’ll also demonstrate how S-NET can manage your technology infrastructure, ultimately saving you the time and hassle of doing it all on your own. 

POS Integration 

Starting with one of the most pressing concerns for QSR businesses, POS integration is essential for enhancing the customer experience. With customers seeking multiple ways to pay, including at-table, at a kiosk, using mobile phones or QR codes, as well as online, seamless POS integration must account for every payment method and facilitate an enjoyable customer experience from any touchpoint.  

Aside from choosing the right POS system or integration method, one way to simplify the overall process is to integrate your POS with your communications system. By streamlining the point-of-sale with your communications platform, you can customize workflows for every customer interaction to help personalize their experience and capture critical data insights about purchasing behaviors. Your communications platform can extend the value of POS integration further by unifying it with other applications tied to your communications, such as accounting, marketing, customer loyalty programs, and more. 

S-NET designs custom workflows for QSRs that leverage POS integration to eliminate silos between front and back of house, access real-time data across multiple locations, and provide managers with enhanced oversight and reporting of their sales. 

AI & Automation 

Leveraging AI effectively can be a daunting prospect for already overwhelmed QSR operators. With many unknowns about how to utilize this increasingly prevalent technology, managers must be able to evaluate the current offerings and make an informed decision about how to get the most benefit with the fewest risks to their operations. 

AI offers multiple benefits to restaurants, such as automating reservations, orders, inventory management, and helping personalize customer experiences. To maximize the benefits, QSR managers should get an expert review of their workflows from QSR technology experts to ensure their AI tool is aligned with their business goals. 

S-NET helps multi-location QSR businesses leverage the power of AI within our omnichannel contact center platform, S-NET Engage. This platform streamlines every customer interaction from phone calls, chats, emails, and social media, leveraging powerful AI engines to evaluate customer sentiments, recommend agent responses, and help ensure repeat business. 

Customer Loyalty & Personalization 

Expanding on the importance of integrated communications and AI, customer loyalty and personalization efforts require the ability to effectively analyze data. If you’re among the 77% of multi-location QSR businesses currently offering a customer loyalty program, then you know the importance of being able to leverage your customer insights to tailor the right offers that keep them coming back to your business. 

S-NET helps our multi-location QSR customers maximize their data insights with custom reporting tailored to their unique goals and workflows. Our dedicated solution experts review communications infrastructure, call and contact center trends, and future-state goals to recommend and implement tailored solutions. We help you optimize every stage of the customer journey with your brand to deliver exceptional service and nurture relationships to inspire long-term customer loyalty. 

Third-Party Delivery 

Adding to an already complex business model, third-party delivery services are yet another puzzle piece QSR managers must manage to keep up with customer demand. The attractive convenience and widespread availability of third-party delivery apps can be a double-edged sword for tight restaurant margins.  

To maximize the value of third-party delivery services, QSRs should ensure their POS integration supports these popular apps or seek custom integration services with their communications system. Another option is to offer in-house delivery through custom communications workflows to cut out the third-party entirely and recapture more revenue with competitive customer experiences. S-NET provides both third-party app integrations and custom workflows to ensure your business is covered for whichever route you choose. 

Integrated Hardware & Devices 

The digitization of dining experiences introduces new ways to engage with and satisfy customers, from mobile ordering and contactless payments to POS integration with cutting-edge kiosks. Successfully implementing the latest hardware and devices into your QSR business requires careful planning, choosing the right solutions, and ensuring a seamless rollout with the help of your technology vendor.
