To keep customers happy and coming back for seconds, restaurants must meet fluctuating demand reliably, maintain consistency across locations, and ensure uncompromising quality for every customer. What can the modern restaurant or hospitality company do to stay afloat?

In this recent op ed in Hospitality Technology, we discuss the impact of IoT-powered visibility solutions on the food chain. From adjusting inventory to meet spikes in demand, to ensuring consistently high quality levels with ingredients sourced from a complex, global supply chain, real-time visibility is the key to success.

With IoT sensors tracking not just location, but also temperature, humidity, and shock, it becomes possible to discover potentially harmful conditions as soon as they occur. If a sensor detects temperatures outside the permissible range, it can send an alert to the supply chain manager right away, giving them time to fix the problem (be it a broken air conditioner or a shipment left out in the sun), often before the damage is done. Even if it’s too late to save the product from spoilage, the advanced warning makes it possible to order a replacement shipment and avoid restaurant closures and lost revenues.
