Launched in May 2020, Autocanteen can demonstrate its value to leading catering and quick serve food businesses and organisations as companies, employees and students up and down the country return to retail locations, offices and universities. Its solution brings significant business benefits, including reduced operating costs, reduced queues, increased revenues and less food waste – with self-service transactions taking less than 10 seconds.
Customers are very impressed, once they realise there's no need to fiddle with menu categories any longer on a traditional self-checkout POS system and they just need to place their items and tap a card, their emotions are rewarding to watch.
