Hey, Alexa – help me build the restaurant of the future


Online ordering for delivery is another modern-day phenomenon. The analysts Deloitte point out that 40% of customers now prefer to place their orders online.

When they do, they’re likely to spend up to 15% more – a significant factor for restaurants keen to boost their revenue.

Delivery as a service for diners has rocketed in popularity, thanks to companies such as Deliveroo and Uber Eats.

It allows restaurants who’ve never considered home delivery to develop new revenue streams, and it’s sure to keep on growing as a trend – one service is even offering restaurants the chance to use its ‘dark kitchens’ to meet demand.

If you haven’t yet responded to this trend, your restaurant is running a huge risk. Not just the risk of being left behind, but of failing completely – you don’t want to watch powerlessly as your customer base drifts away from you.

So our new Voice Ordering service harnesses Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant to provide customers with an incredibly effortless link to your restaurant or bar, via Aloha from NFS.

Aloha is a leading EPOS restaurant management solution used by hospitality businesses across the UK to streamline operations.

Our innovative Voice Ordering service harnesses Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant to provide your customers with an effortless link to your restaurant.

Your customer: “Hey, Alexa – open the app for my favourite eating place.”

Alexa: “I have opened the app – would you like your usual?”

Your customer says yes or no, then agrees the delivery or collection time – and the order is relayed instantly to your kitchen while payment is taken automatically.

Luis De Souza, CEO of NFS Technology Group, said: “At NFS, we no longer speak about Aloha as ‘point of sale’. Instead, it’s the core foundation of restaurant technology,  a world-class platform-of-sale, integrating with the different software providers who can connect guests easily to your restaurant.

“Aloha from NFS also provides all you need for stock control, head office reporting, purchasing, guest reservations, labour management, marketing and effective loyalty programmes.

“The fact is, the restaurant of the future knows one size no longer fits all when it comes to that important and very personal connection.

“Diners demand an unprecedentedly individual service that caters just for them – and Aloha, with such easy integration, helps your restaurant build exactly what connections you need to keep them happy.”
