The Future of Staff Communication

Wearable Smart Bands will help restaurants achieve peak performance.

Now more than ever, efficiency is a crucial ingredient for restaurant success. Not only have labor costs risen, but restaurants are also operating at lower capacity amid the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing staff headcount and table numbers. Meanwhile, these smaller teams must manage ever-growing lists of tasks to keep employees and guests safe. As a result, restaurants are seeking tools that can help their teams communicate more effectively to boost productivity.

To remedy these challenges, JTECH is creating a new wearable smart band called LinkWear, designed to help restaurants with staff-to-staff, guest-to-staff, and device-to-staff communications and task management. LinkWear will also allows staff to tailor c
ustom messages and send them to the whole team or to the right person at the right time.

Adding to the current staff communication toolbox of two-way radios and staff pagers, LinkWear wearable smart-bands are a new way to stay connected and help with task management.

With LinkWear, kitchen staff can tell servers when orders are ready, eliminating the need for runners. Managers can receive reminders when critical tasks should be done, assign those tasks to individuals through the device, and be alerted when they are completed. LinkWear will also track who completed the tasks, enabling cleaning and maintenance tracking and logs. A 

host could also tell a server that a VIP is sitting at a specific table or if guests are celebrating a special occasion—all part of providing a great guest experience.
