Running a restaurant is no easy task. From managing staff to ordering supplies, countless things need to be taken care of. But perhaps one of the most important aspects of restaurant management is table-turning, the process of getting customers in the doors, served, and out again as quickly and efficiently as possible.
According to a study by the National Restaurant Association, increasing table turnover by just one per hour can increase revenue by up to $1,500 per year for a single table. That’s a significant increase for any restaurant.
But get this right, and you’ll increase revenue by allowing more customers to be served in a given time period. Technology is stepping in to make table turning even more efficient with computer vision.
Kibsi’s computer vision platform is helping restaurants take advantage of this exciting technology. Kibsi is a no-code computer vision platform that uses existing security cameras to turn video feeds into usable, actionable data.
This approach enables restaurants to take advantage of computer vision without having to invest in an expensive or complicated new camera setup. Instead, they can simply connect their existing cameras to the Kibsi platform and start using it right away.
Once up and running, Kibsi allows you to really understand what’s happening in your business in dozens of different ways. For example, you could get a better picture of how long customers are spending sitting at tables or how many tables are available. Kibsi can also track tables and customers throughout the dining experience, provide real-time data on table availability, customer wait times, and much more – all just by leveraging the existing cameras already in the space.
With this information, restaurants can make adjustments to operations, such as increasing staff or adjusting seating arrangements and can help restaurants make more informed decisions about how to best manage their operations. The result, of course, is increased revenue as more customers can be served in a given time period. But, it can also have a tremendous impact on customer experience as you help ensure that tables are turned quickly for shorter wait times.
Let’s face it, while table management isn’t necessarily glamorous, it’s an essential aspect of restaurant management, and computer vision is making it more efficient than ever.
At Kibsi, we’re working hard to make it easy for restaurants to start using computer vision, with a no-code platform that can be connected to your existing security cameras.
