The True Power of Data in Your Restaurant

In the digital age we find ourselves in today, data has emerged as the key to informed decision-making and smart business strategies. Industries across the spectrum are relentlessly seeking methods to harvest data about customer behaviors, trends, and preferences. With Fingermark’s cutting-edge kiosk software, Supersonic we not only capture this data but also transform it into valuable insights, equipping Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) with the power to adapt and cater to the ever-evolving demands of both their customers and staff. Each interaction on the kiosks generates a multitude of data points, creating a treasure trove of information.

From data points to CJ

By piecing together the data points accrued through our Supersonic software, our customers gain a greater perspective of the user journey, a priceless asset for helping restaurants achieve their business objectives. The insights gathered can be utilized to:

Reduce Abandoned Sessions: Recognizing the exact stages at which users typically abandon their transactions empowers you to implement precise improvements, thus minimizing missed opportunities.

Increase Order Value and Total Revenue: By analyzing user behavior, you can pinpoint opportunities for upselling and tailor your offerings to maximize order value and overall revenue.

Reduce Session Duration: Streamlining the user journey by removing bottlenecks and unnecessary steps ensures users complete transactions efficiently and swiftly.

Optimize Store Performance: Identifying and predicting busy times in restaurants, streamlining staff scheduling and optimizing the number of kiosks for best ROI.

From a data analytics perspective, the process encompasses more than just data collection; it involves understanding the data thoroughly. Here’s how it unfolds:

Data Collection: Supersonic compiles data from real-time user interactions on the kiosk, revealing the actual actions users take during their sessions.

Historical Analysis: After gathering a few weeks’ worth of data, you can begin identifying trends and anomalies, answering crucial “why” questions. For example, if the daily average revenue fluctuates, is it due to a menu adjustment, a new feature, or some other factor?

Actionable Insights: Armed with these analytics, not only for an individual customer but also benchmark data from other customers, you can derive actionable insights and recommendations for improvements.

The data captured by Supersonic is triggered by user interface (UI) events. The list of user journey stages is well-defined, with the type of data collected varying from one event to another.

To make sense of this data, various data visualization tools are used and sent to managers. Our databoards offer customers:
