The global foodservice market projected to almost double from $265trn in 2023 to $5.42trn by 2030. The industry, particularly within the European restaurant sector, is undergoing a pivotal transformation. A transformation driven by innovation and technology. This evolution is not only about enhancing the dining experience but also adapting to the preferences of consumers. According to Deloitte, 60% of consumers believe that technology improves their dining experience by streamlining operations and reducing wait times.
Statistics including the fact that there has been a 65% growth in online food orders and a 31% increase in takeaway service since the pandemic, are transforming restaurants from traditional eating spaces into technologically advanced environments where payment technologies are integrated into the customer experience. This has led to the creation of comprehensive, immersive experiences that bridge physical and digital. This includes not only augmented-reality menus and AI-driven meal recommendations but also a seamless integration of the dining experience with digital platforms. All the way through to an almost unnoticeable act of payment.
Worldline Food Services Payments Suite launches to adapt to customer trends
Worldline Food Services Payments Suite has been developed specifically to answer customers’ food and beverage use cases beyond traditional payment processing. For example, it encapsulates developments and trends within the industry by facilitating the latest digital solutions like wallets, QR codes, and in-app payments. It will also put the emphasis on the customer engagement experience, particularly at the point of checkout. This new and innovative solution creates a more memorable and satisfying experience where the use of data-driven analytics, often powered by AI, plays a pivotal role.
Additionally, the service will enable extended connectivity into the food services ecosystem by using customer data. This offering integrates closely with the hardware and maintenance partners, to offer more targeted and appropriate services and nurture a more loyal customer base.
