Digital signage at restaurants has evolved from just mounting displays and showing cable tv. Digital menu boards now have purpose and help to contribute to the success of restaurants.
Along with an array of food and fresh bakery, the combination of Santo Gallo and Pastelerías Esperanza with the help of P&J Congress Design and its alliance P&P Sistemas y Marketing deployed AOPEN nTAKE Digital Menu Board solutions in several restaurants across Mexico.
As with many tools, the objective of increasing sales using digital menu boards was assisted by displaying dynamic content that invited customers to try new menu items which also helped streamline processes by assisting customers in placing orders.

With multiple locations across the country, a streamlined approach of synchronizing content from headquarters was needed. Although networking infrastructure may be limiting in some areas, internet connections were available in each location.
