Two months ago, the Horeca Expo took place in Ghent. Unipage couldn't miss out on that. Curious about our experience and this year's trends? Then keep reading!
We had a lot of visitors to our booth this edition, both existing and new customers who were eager to meet us and our kiosks face-to-face. Despite many concerns, there was a fun and positive atmosphere. Merchants are searching for solutions, and Unipage provides these solutions through kiosks and their integrated POS systems, offering savings in labor costs and time.
Speaking of POS systems... Everything is connected and synchronized. No more manual input of inventory and sales data. Because we recognize that reliable internet connectivity may not be available everywhere, everything can be used 100% offline.
Thanks to the engaging conversations at Horeca Expo, we got a glimpse of future trends.
The biggest trend we noticed? The use of payment terminals. You've probably noticed it too; they are increasingly present in more dining establishments. We were approached by various payment providers at the exhibition, and this is something that will also benefit merchants. Why? More players in the market mean more competition and, therefore, lower costs. That's why Unipage is already integrating as many payment systems as possible into their kiosks.
Here's another spoiler: convenience is one of the fastest-growing markets, and there are plenty of opportunities for functional hospitality. Fast food, in particular, is benefiting from this trend. From home delivery and fresh meal kits to fast self-ordering via kiosks, customers want to put a meal on the table as easily as possible.
Did you know that today your first impression is made online? Ensure you have a beautiful website, a Google business page, and a clear online menu. Unipage can help you with this!
These factors, especially among the younger generation, play a decisive role in choosing your hospitality establishment. However, be authentic and make sure you live up to those beautiful photos.
We'll be back for the next edition! With even more kiosks, POS systems, and demos. If you prefer not to wait for the next trade show visit, request a no-obligation demo via [email protected], and we'll personally discuss the benefits with you.
