Digital transformation gets a lot of buzz these days, and rightly so. Customer experience and service expectations are changing fast, fueled by equally rapid advances in technology. Digital technology and consumers’ expectations are impacting the guest dining journey and restaurant operators must adapt and transform to keep pace.

The need to prepare for the world of “Dining 2.0” – and the strategic technology solutions behind it – will be on full display at MURTEC 2018, April 11-13, at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. For business and IT leaders in QSR and fast casual dining restaurants, the show couldn’t come at a better time.

The dining journey is changing and the experience needs to adapt

Digital is now deeply embedded into the entire dining journey. It impacts how customers plan their visit, interact with the brand before, during and after their visit, make their purchase, and how they perceive that entire experience at the end of the journey. Restaurant operators who understand this are better prepared to engage those diners and keep them coming back for more.

Digital restaurant transformation takes strategy and technology

As more restaurants compete through customer experience (CX) improvements, the need for operators to satisfy rising expectations by transforming their operations increases. The restaurants that take immediate actions and are most agile in their deployments will have a decided advantage over those that sit on the sidelines.

Agility in this transformation depends heavily on both strategic insight into what each unique dining segment is looking for and the technical ability and infrastructure to deliver it.
