However, things are changing. More and more restaurateurs who realize that those organized restaurant chains that better economic results obtained are also performed in more resources technology investments.

This paradigm shift have also realized developers of technological solutions. Now that there is a market demand evident in the catering sector, the number of improvements based on new technologies has also increased.

The latest of the latter is a based on artificial intelligence capable of studying existing inefficiencies in restaurant management system. Powered by machine learning or machine learning, he software collects data on how the facility is operated and checked against other databases (customers, income, expenses, weather, calendar, etc.).

Creation is the work of Fourth, a technology company specializing in providing solutions for the catering and hospitality.

The new service manages the inventory and the template using predictive tools never before seen, and collaborative utilities and demand forecasts that close the package software virtuously.

The launch of the new management tool takes place after the acquisition of Choice HR by Fourth. The new product has specifications that will make life easier restorers, namely:

The future management of restaurants, especially those with large operations, passing the macrodatos and interpretive tools based on artificial intelligence and machine learning.

However, It is a step for giving, and it is to integrate the internet of things throughout the system, so that it is not necessary to transmit the orders proposed by the manager to the actuators core mechanism or suppliers. But until we see these applications will still have to spend a few years.
