Infor announced Infor OrderNow, A New Contactless Ordering Solution for Hospitality Industry
Infor today announced Infor OrderNow, a new contactless ordering solution to help the hospitality industry better navigate the operational challenges that the current pandemic presents, while supporting the dining revenue stream in the future. An extension of Infor POS, Infor's powerful cloud-based point-of-sale solution, Infor OrderNow is a new solution released as an adaptation to changes in customer purchase behavior that also provides organizations with a tool to address declining revenue challenges. The hospitality industry, including hotels, restaurants, campus cafeterias, etc., stand to benefit from greater customer satisfaction, increased order accuracy and higher average check totals.
As apprehensiveness about dining out continues to linger, it's more important than ever to provide the hospitality industry with tools to help regain revenue during a culturally changing landscape while adhering to changing virus prevention guidelines, said Rick Kuhlmann, Infor director of product development. "In response to this and the needs of our customers, Infor developed this contactless ordering mobile web application that will provide a frictionless and contactless user experience to give guests the peace of mind of ordering directly from their phone.

The phrases ‘big data’ and ‘business intelligence’ have been around for decades. But while many companies claim to take the concepts seriously, few understand them well enough to maximise their business potential. Most organisations today collect large amounts of market data, from sources such as website, social media, and business transactions. They come in a variety of formats (stock counters, emails, audio and video) and may stream into the business in real-time – often in huge volumes. Yet while good business practice dictates that gathering this ‘big data’ is essential, more important is the question of what you should do with it.
