A word from Vivonet's CEO Ryan Volberg: How consumer self-ordering can help restaurants address the labour shortage


In June 2014, the Canadian Federal Government modified the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, which made the challenge of finding quality staff even more difficult for restaurants. Since the program change, many restaurants in Canada have been forced to search for scarce local candidates. To manage this challenge, restaurateurs are now looking for new ways to adapt to the sparse labour market while continuing to meet guest expectations.  

Some of these restaurateurs are finding that picking the right POS technology can make all the difference. The traditional POS terminal helps increase automation but still requires an employee to run, which is difficult to find during the labour shortage and can cost restaurants $25,000 - $30,000 a year. Some chains and independent restaurants are taking advantage of the decreasing cost of tablets and the increase in consumers’ comfort with the technology. The Applebee’s chain is a great example of the increasing adoption of customer self-ordering systems. Applebee’s recently announced that they will be rolling out 100,000 table-top customer self-ordering tablets that will allow customers to browse nutritional information and the web, enter their own orders, play games, and even pay their bill. The results are higher average cheques, reduced labour costs and increased table turns. It’s an impressive business case that the entire industry can benefit from.

Are you running a promo and looking to give your staff incentives to push promotional items? The employee sales mix report is a great way to keep track of individual products sold by each of your employees. This report can be used to quickly pull data on individual employees and see where they rank among others by showcasing specific item sales numbers. The Employee Sales Mix report will help your restaurant carry out contests to inspire staff members and motivate your staff to up-sell items with high margins. The report lets you see which staff members are most effective at selling the items that you really want your guests to purchase.
