Technology at the Table

Posted on

Most adults know that having your phone out at dinner is bad table manners – but what iPads? What if the restaurant puts them on the table right in front of you, and expects you to order from them? Now, that’s a completely different story.

It seems that restaurants are catching onto the idea that screens are absolutely irresistible to people these days, so if they can’t beat ‘em they might as well join ‘em. Restaurants are starting to use more iPads and tablets on the table, not only for ordering – but for payment as well. Splitting a check has never been so stress-free.

If you’re worried about machines taking people’s jobs, rest assured that restaurants using this system still employ wait staff and they seem to be making good tips… since a computer is suggesting the math for gratuities. Another plus side is that customers don’t have to wait for the server to return so they can pay. Seems that restaurants have a faster turnover of customers, meaning that wait staff can gather more tips that way, too.

Remember, if you’re looking for Corporate Catering in San Mateo, Private Party Catering in the San Francisco Bay – or any other catering needs – call us on (650) 961-3300 to see how we can use technology to get food onto your table. Almost all the information you need is on our website, after that, all you need to do is call!

It’s predicted that within the next few years, most restaurants will head towards tablets on tables. How do you feel about this? Comment below!
