Evoke launch new products at Restaurant and Takeaway Innovation Expo

Evoke Creative are to showcase a brand new “off the shelf” range of hardware and software at this year’s Restaurant and Takeaway Innovation Expo at London’s Excel centre which takes place this week. Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to meet with the team and try out the new products for the first time.

Combining the cutting edge design and technology that evoke are known for into an adaptable range of products, the new touchscreen ordering kiosk and self service check out are modular designs which are customisable to match company style and branding. The machines can be used for a range of functions including self service ordering, store check out, customer check-in, personalisation and more.

The new range opens up the latest in digital technology to businesses who might not have the scale to undergo evoke’s full bespoke design service. The kiosks can be powered by evoke’s own Core software technology which can handle payment and integrate with existing POS back end, and the front end user experience can be customised with company branding and colours. Evoke’s Co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer Neil Clark says that, “We have seen a huge increase in demand for our products in the past few years, reflecting the success of our design and manufacturing and the brand recognition that comes with being a key supplier to the world’s biggest quick service restaurant brand. “Working with McDonald’s and a number of other world-leading brands over the years has shown us that the demand is there for self-service and digital technologies and we are excited to be able to share this technology with a wider market. We want to make great design and effective automation available to other vendors and believe a standard product range with a wide range of customisable options is the very best option.”

Advantages of self-service:

  • Serve more customers
  • Free up staff to interact with customers and enhance experience
  • In depth reporting on demand and ordering trends
  • Increase personalisation options
  • Increase spend (more browse time and targeted ads)
  • Customer expectation – align with leading brands already using this technology
  • Reduce waste by cooking to order

Incorporating peripherals from well known suppliers, the touchscreen kiosks will be able to take payment, scan barcodes, print receipts and have the potential for additional functionality including a built in camera. Evoke are looking to roll out the first standard units to sites by the end of the year and are also planning a range of other standard products to order in early 2019. Evoke’s end to end process includes consultation, design, manufacture, installation and support to meet requirements, ensuring digital transformation and integration is as straightforward as possible.

Taking place on 25th and 26th September the Restaurant and Takeaway Innovation Expo promises to help restauranteurs and takeaway owners from across the globe to find all the tools they need to excel in the age of digital dining, revolutionize their offering, and transform the way they engage with their customers.
