NEXTEP SYSTEMS, a developer of intuitive touchscreen ordering, dynamic digital menu displays and online ordering solutions for the foodservice industry, has announced the launch of automated ordering systems in foodservice outlets at the U.S. Millitary Academy at West Point, the National training Center at Fort Irwin in California and the U.S. Patent Office in Washington, D.C.
At West Point, NEXTEP has installed Dynamic Digital Menu Displays (DDMD) and self-order kiosks in the Cadet Restaurant to automate the ordering in the high-volume mess hall. The academy will soon add online ordering, providing cadets with a way to order from their rooms for later pickup.
NEXTEP was enlisted by The National Training Center at Fort Irwin to implement a complete touchscreen ordering kiosk and DDMD solution for the base's multiple dining concepts.
For Sodexo's Signature Deli at the U.S. Patent Office, NEXTEP designed and implemented a system including freestanding kiosks, thermal receipt printers and Web-based administration. The system will reduce lines and wait times during peak hours.
"Our solutions are enabling these facilities to server large number of patrons better by dramatically reducing wait times and allowing greater traffic without increasing payrolls," said NEXTEP SYSTEMS president and co-founder Tommy Woycik. "It is expected these installations will also increase per-order dollar amounts as well."
