It’s Nate Riggs and Brandon Hull, back with a fresh episode of This Week in Restaurant Technologies.
Episode Six is a great one — rather than “go deep” on 1-2 subjects, we tackle 4 developments in restaurant technology and marketing.
- Google Glass and the restaurant industry. (Did you know a journalist was assaulted while wearing these to a bar in SF?) Glass users were invited to attend the 2014 Northwest Foodservice Show in Seattle via a live stream on Glass.
- Keeping with the Google theme, we move on to updates to Google Analytics. We’re on the cusp, folks, of very carefully tracking offline behavior with analytics tools.
- A five-year Flurry report has been udpated for 2014, informing us that 86% of smartphone users’ time on their phones is spent in apps versus under 14% of their time spent using a mobile browser. That part isn’t a surprise. What we should conclude from that is what we dive into.
- How can or should social media chatter drive your menu decisions? We toss this around a bit as well.
Watch the conversation to check out this week’s thoughts on the latest in technologies for restaurants.
