Fall is here once again which means cold and flu season is not far behind. For restaurants and stores it can be a difficult time of year. Customers come in with all types of germs, colds and even the flu. These germs can pass from customer to server or store clerk. And the touch screens we use for order entry or credit card checkout will be full of germs that will transfer from one user to another.
As the weather gets warmer you will notice that restaurants, large and small, are adding outdoor dining areas on the sidewalk. You will also notice that many establishments have adopted electronic ordering systems indoors. These terminals make it easier for servers to take orders and send orders to the kitchen, speeding up service and the delivery of your food. For the outdoor tables many restaurants are adopting an exciting new technology: wireless points of sale POS. A wireless POS system, such as Micros Oracle, TouchBistro, Boxy POS, BIM POS, ShopKeep, or eZeeBurrp, makes employees’ lives easier by relaying orders directly to the kitchen, as they’re taken from the table. All a restaurant needs is a WiFi network throughout its building, and communication between the kitchen and the front of the house is easy.
As we reach Fall season once again you’ve noticed the weather getting cooler and the air colder. This means that germs and bacteria are lurking and seeking vulnerable targets. Because it is flu season, restaurants and other businesses need to be extra cautious keeping areas clean that may harbor germs. The touch screen displays of POS devices can become breeding grounds for germs and bacteria.
As restaurants take advantage of technology and work toward better order processing efficiency, the use of traditional paper order forms and cash registers is slowly phased out. Say hello to Point of Sale (POS) systems. With POS systems, servers can take more orders, make less mistakes and speed up the order to table food delivery process.
Technology is taking the restaurant industry by storm and the larger percentage of diners agree that it actually improves their guest experience. Global fast food chains like McDonald’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebees and Red Robin, for instance, are using technology as a fast and convenient way of ordering food. Digital menus are the next big thing and by the convenience and efficiency they are already providing in restaurants, one can tell that they are here to stay.
One of the hottest trends in the retail world is in store digital signage. Gas stations, transportation stations and other outlets have featured simple digital signage for many years, and they’re frequent sights above American highways. But as the prices of LCD and LED screens have plummeted, retailers are stepping up their game.
Restaurants large and small are adopting an exciting new technology: wireless points of sale (POS). Wireless POS systems are either a tablet or other mobile device that allows cashiers and servers to take payment, and relay orders to the kitchen, from a customer’s table.
Between the cost of of food, supplies, equipment and salaries, anything that will improve the bottom line will become an instant hit with restaurant owners. That’s one reason the use of mobile apps has revolutionized the food services industry in so many different ways.
From customer loyalty programs to inventory tracking systems, it’s becoming more and more clear that mobile apps are the wave of the dining industry’s future. They increase efficiency and productivity among employees and contractors alike, all while improving the customer experience.
Do some research on products like our NuShield anti glare screen protector film and you’ll be surprised at how many different applications they have. Screen protector films can be applied not only to the displays of electronics, but also directly on windows to prevent glare from bright sunlight from hindering visibility indoors.
Those who do business from a storefront location such as convenience stores, know that bright sunlight poring into their store windows can make it hard to see. Glare can not only make it impossible to read cash register and computer screen displays, but it can also make interaction and communication with co-workers and clients difficult.
Consider the following scenario: A police officer can’t see into a local convenience store because posters have been put up over the windows to block the glare from the sun and to allow store clerks to make out cash register screens. While these posters might improve visibility on the inside of the store, the safety of those working in the store is compromised if the police cannot see the store clerk and the register area. Thieves take note of factors like poor visibility and use them to their advantage to rob storefront locations while invisible to the police and other passersby.
In his family’s sunroom on a bright summer afternoon, Johnny is playing Titan Fall on Xbox One and streaming on Twitch. It’s one of the best games he’s ever played on any Xbox (even though there is no campaign!) He’s killing all the bad guys and racking up the score – he’s gaining gamers one by one, each gamer leaving more and more amazing comments along the way. It’s probably his best game yet. Things look good for him! But, in the sun lurks an evil being. An evil so horrible, so horrific, that you couldn’t believe it if you tried!
That evil is called Dr. Glare. Funny enough this dangerous and irritating villain only comes out during the day when the sun is bright and hot. Nonetheless, Johnny tries his best to beat Dr. Glare. He dives left, then right, he moves his chair, he goes deeper inside, he closes the drapes. He tries everything he can to keep Dr. Glare out, but to no avail. Suddenly, a Minion comes from behind a wall in Titan Fall and kills Johnny on the spot! If only he would have had a way to keep that nasty Dr. Glare out of his room. If only he had a hero to come in and save the day – and his game!
If you are a Twitch gamer that goes through this on a daily basis dealing with your own Dr. Glare, start thinking about how to defeat this monstrous villain! It might seem like it’s futile at first. Like nothing you do will keep him away, but if only you had the right weapons and the right hero, then you could defeat him. In times like this, there is only one thing to do — get out the Anti-Glare signal and call for… Captain Anti-Glare! Surely, with the super power of NuShield’s® Antiglare/Anti-fingerprint screen protector he will be able to defeat Dr. Glare!
All right, so Anti-Glare is not a super hero, but it might feel like one after you defeat reflection or glare issues on your TV. All gamers go through this problem, but when you are Twitch gamer and you are streaming your game, any inconsistency or issue like glare, is always something you want to get rid of as soon as possible! Yes, a screen protector like NuShield AG Antiglare is the perfect weapon to have when playing any games on any television. Not only is it going to keep Dr. Glare away and allow you to play in peace with other gamers, but if you are playing on Twitch and you are playing live, it could also keep your fans and followers from getting annoyed at Dr. Glare as well.
NuShield AG Antiglare has two weapons to help fight against glare and reflective issues to help gamers, depending on where you are playing. You can choose from:
Weapon #1: NuShield® DayVue™ Anti-Reflective: A great weapon for fighting all those annoyning screen reflections that block your ability to see the screen if you are playing outside ,or
Weapon #2: NuShield® AG™ Anti-Glare films for indoor use.
Both of these weapons use a material that is stronger and more reliable than anything else out there. Both of shields will help you play a better more clear game, help you see the television screen better without all those reflections and glare, and both will protect your TV screen.
NuShield can be used on almost any gaming device too, not just a television set. Gamers are using them on DS, Gameboy, Sony Slim and more.
