System Integration for the digitalization of Restaurants and Hotels: from software to Service Robots

Digitalizing operations means offering an innovative customer experience and getting the most out of your business. But nothing can ignore the integration of systems
Reading time: 5 minutes

Digital transformation it means to integrate digital technologies in a significant and strategic way in the operations that a business can carry out on a daily basis.

Digitize it means making services more efficient, it means optimizing time and costs, and it means providing a superior customer experience.

For this reason the sector of catering and of thehospitality cannot stay behind.I restaurants and the hotel facilitiesIn fact, they are embracing digitalization to remain competitive in an increasingly dynamic market. 

The role of the System Integrator, because it's right there system integration (systems integration), to play the crucial role in harmonizing and optimizing the use of different technologies, from software to the use of Service Robot.

You read that right, we're talking about robotics and solutions like i robot waiters, which are becoming popular in the most advanced countries and which are spreading like wildfire in restaurants and hotels all over the world.

But so that these robotic collaborators can work in harmony and with absolute precision of execution in the contexts in which they are inserted, careful integration of the systems is once again required. Let's see how in the following lines.

Digitalization in restaurants and hotels

There digitalisation is profoundly transforming the way i restaurants they hotel operate and interact with their customers. 

From booking a table or room online to managing orders and room service via apps, technology is simplifying processes and offering new opportunities for customer engagement. 

However, the real revolution lies inintegration of these different systems to create a seamless experience for customers and a more efficient workflow for staff.

For this reason the System Integration it is the beating heart of digitalisation: because it consists of combining different software and hardware systems into a single one harmonized infrastructure

In the context of restaurants and hospitality establishments, it means connect and make software cooperate with each other booking systems, order management systems, payment devices and much more. 

This approach helps eliminate data duplication, reduce human errors And improve accuracy of the processes.

THE management software aimed at optimizing operations in restaurants and hotels therefore represent the first step in digitalisation. Restaurants and hotels can use software for resource planning, reservation management, accounting and inventory. 

These tools help you automate manual tasks, provide detailed analytics, and make more informed decisions. But the real advantage appears when these software are integrated with each other.

System integration, in fact, creates an environment in which data can flow without obstacles, allowing faster and more informed decisions. Process automation reduces errors And improves efficiency, while the use of service robots can improve customer experience and free staff from repetitive tasks.

Service Robots, from Waiter Robots to those for reception and cleaning

One of the most interesting innovations, in restaurant and hotel contexts, is the introduction of Service Robot, who can take on a great variety of tasks within hotel premises and facilities. 

These robots can be integrated into the workflow to carry out tasks such as food and drink delivery, room cleaning and even room service and customer interaction. 

Of course, in order for them to do all this, one is required robot integration carefully planned, to ensure harmonious collaboration between human personnel and machines.

Going into specifics, when we talk about Service Robot we are referring to all those service robotic solutions capable of carrying out the most repetitive tasks typical of human work. 

In application contexts such as those of catering, therefore places of all kinds but also canteens and catering services, and accommodation, such as hotels, B&B residences and villages, service robots can, for example: take care of welcoming customers, self-check-in, customer service by providing information on the activity, cleaning and disinfection of environments and rooms, but even more complex tasks such as room service directly on the floor or take orders at the tables.

For almost all of the examples mentioned, systems integration plays a crucial role. Let's take the most astonishing example, that of room service on the floor by a Robot Waiter

One of the biggest challenges that the developers of waiter robots have found themselves facing is precisely this, but the solution came from the study of a system that would give the robots the ability to use the elevator to reach the different floors of a structure. 

To solve this problem, the developers therefore worked on the compatibility of robots with i elevator control systems present in buildings and, thanks to this integration now achievable, robots can use elevators just like a person would.

But there are not only robot waiters. Here are some below another example of a service robot.

Robot concierge

Concierge robots are capable of provide information and assistance to the guests. They can answer frequently asked questions, provide information about the property and the surrounding area, book additional services and much more. Using concierge robots not only reduces the workload of human staff, but also allows guests to get immediate responses at any time.

Cleaning robots

Cleaning robots are designed to carry out the cleaning of common areas, such as corridors, lobbies and conference rooms. These robots can vacuum, mop floors and even disinfect surfaces, helping to maintain hygiene and constant cleaning of the structure and rooms. The use of cleaning robots not only reduces the time and effort required of cleaning staff, but also ensures a constant and uniform level of cleanliness.

Suitcase handling robot

Some accommodation facilities are experimenting with the use of robots for bag handling. These robots can help guests carry their suitcases from the entrance areas to their rooms, simplifying the check-in process and improving the overall experience.

Welcome Robot

Welcome robots are capable of welcome and accompany you to the tables the patrons of a club. They can answer frequently asked questions, provide information on the menu and give the possibility to book a table directly at the establishment by creating a waiting list. This solution allows you to reduce the workload of human personnel, while at the same time creating a source of attractiveness for every type of venue.

Kitchen robot

Food processors are becoming more and more common in commercial kitchens. These robots can perform various tasks such as the preparation of ingredients, cooking and presentation of dishes. They reduce preparation time and allow chefs to focus on creative tasks.

Delivery robot

Autonomous delivery robots are becoming a reality in the food industry. These robots can deliver food directly to customers, reducing delivery costs and improving the overall efficiency of the service.
