    QSR magazine announced that it is now accepting submissions for the 2020 Applied Technology Awards. The biennial report shines a spotlight on the best tech platforms and products that are enhancing the restaurant industry and streamlining business for operators.

    This year, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, QSR will specifically recognize tech products that help restaurant operators tackle the myriad challenges presented by this crisis.

    “The COVID-19 outbreak is easily the biggest challenge in modern restaurant history, but the industry is more prepared than ever to face those challenges head on because of the tech products available,” says Sam Oches, QSR editor. “We’re excited to honor those platforms that we think are uniquely suited to helping operators get through this crisis and setting restaurants up for long-term success.”

    QSR will recognize technology products in two categories: Crew Facing/Back of House and Customer Facing/Front of House. Only products launched after November 2018 will be considered. Winners will be chosen by September 1, 2020, and will be published in QSR's November 2020 issue.
