Foodservice technology refers to the use of technology in the foodservice industry to streamline processes, enhance customer experiences, and improve overall operations.
There are several reasons why leveraging technology in foodservice operations is important including efficiency, improved customer experience, accuracy, cost savings, and most of all valuable data collection for quick and easy decision making.
Foodservice operators who do not use technology are at risk of falling behind their competitors who do use technology. They may also be more susceptible to errors and inefficiencies, leading to increased costs and decreased customer satisfaction. Without the ability to collect and analyze data, they may also struggle to make informed business decisions.
Here are the top 3 foodservice technology must-haves according to Buyers Edge Platform industry experts:
Spend management technology can help foodservice operators track expenses and control costs, which is crucial for maximizing profits in a highly competitive industry.

Be leveraging supply chain management technology, operators can ensure that they have the right ingredients and supplies in the right quantities at the right time.
This can help reduce waste, improve efficiency, and minimize the risk of stockouts or shortages.
With supply chain management technology, restaurants can track inventory levels, monitor supplier performance, and optimize their ordering and delivery processes.
Additionally, the data collected through supply chain management technology can be used to identify opportunities for cost savings and process improvements. Maintain a consistent level of quality and service while minimizing costs and maximizing profits with the help of supply chain management technology.
Back-office technology can help restaurants automate administrative tasks, reduce errors, and save time. It can also provide valuable data and insights to help restaurants make informed business decisions. By streamlining tasks such as accounting, payroll, AP Automation, and food cost management, operators can focus on other aspects of the business. Additionally, back-office technology can help restaurants stay compliant with regulations and laws related to labor, taxes, and other areas.
