NFC system launched by SAI Biz Solutions could provide serious benefits to Thailand restaurant
SAI Biz Solutions, a software developer in Thailand, has introduced a new NFC system developed for one of Thailand’s most popular restaurants. The company claims that the NFC system is the first of its kind in the country and expects that it will bring serious benefits to the restaurant in which it will be used: Big Mama Pizzeria. Like the NFC systems that are being used in other restaurants in other parts of the world, this system is expected to increase the sales at the restaurant while reducing wait times.
NFC technology touted for its capabilities in transmitting digital information
NFC technology is most often used in mobile commerce, but has seen modest use in marketing as well. NFC facilitates the transmission of digital information over short distanced. The data transmission properties of NFC have made the technology popular in a variety of industries. SAI Biz Solutions believes that the technology could have powerful implications for the restaurant business and is keen to see just how viable NFC technology will be in this space.
NFC system available to those with NFC-enabled devices
Using the NFC system, customers will be able to place their orders through their smart phones. The Big Mama Pizzeria menu is displayed once a smart phone activates an NFC tag that is associated with the system. The order is electronically delivered to the restaurant’s kitchen and customers are provided with a time estimate regarding when their order will be completed. The downside of the system is that it can only be used by customers with NFC-enabled mobile devices. The availability of these devices is still quite low in Thailand.
More NFC-enabled devices to be released in Thailand soon
Telecommunications and technology companies are working to release new smart phones and mobile devices that are equipped with NFC technology. It may take time for these devices to saturate Thailand’s market, but SAI Biz Solutions believes that its new NFC system will be a success even amongst the small number of consumers who own NFC-enabled mobile devices.
