Can you remember what the restaurant business was like before digital displays? New menus had to be printed every time the management introduced a new dish or flavor. That process involved proofreading, test prints, waste of paper and money in printing the menus.
We have put together a list of 8 possible reasons why it is a good idea to use digital signage to earn a competitive advantage.
- Save time by maintaining a digital menu. Digital menu boards are flexible and allow food retail owners to communicate to their target customers as needed in a quick and efficient manner. Furthermore, any changes made using the digital signage software can update the menus in your entire shop regardless of where the target audience is or how many you have.
- Lower costs & higher profit margins. By investing in digital signage menus and boards, you can automatically save money in printing out new menus every time a minor change comes up. With digital signage, more information can be shared which can be lead to more purchases,where can increase your profit margins.
- Brand Consistency. There is always a tendency of employees to ignore or forget to change static menu boards. Digitized menu boards ensure that all the restaurant locations are up to date and enhance consistency with each other. This is an important factor, especially for restaurants that have a chain of businesses in different locations as diners get to enjoy the same service irrespective of where they choose to go to.
- Good customer experience and entertainment. Digital menu boards promote efficiency in the industry. They ensure speed in delivering the right information at the right time and at the right place. Additionally, they help the customer feel as if they were at home. Business videos, food pictures, recipes, and food ingredients are just some of the things that can attract the attention of your guests. The experience and entertainment will make guests come back and will boost brand loyalty.
- Visual appeal. Digital signage has raised the bar and at the same time provided creative and easier ways to satisfy the needs of customers. The restaurant menu board signs have the ability to grab their diners’ attention with videos and animations. Humans are visual creatures, so being able to tap into that appeal is imperative in the restaurant industry.
- Make communication easier. With digital menu boards, restaurants can market, advertise and also share customized menus and information such as nutritional information about their meals. While, information can be scheduled to be released at the right time to target audience and inform them about special offers available and any upcoming events.
- Reduce perceived wait time. Digital signage can be used to distract customers while waiting at the queue by displaying some fun facts . Since digital menu boards are highly configurable, a certain area on the screen can be dedicated to displaying special content that will help customer less frustrated while waiting for their food.
