How OrderHQ™ Smart Food Lockers Improve Customer Experience

In today’s challenging foodservice labor environment, operators need to make the most of their employees’ efforts while minimizing wasted steps. Apex CEO Mike Wills explains how smart food lockers help employees focus on what really matters.

Foodservice Technology Trends

Today’s customers expect lots of choices from their favorite restaurants, including how they order and pay, and whether they eat onsite, order to-go, or get it delivered. Kent Savage discusses how Apex technology helps restaurants meet consumers’ high expectations wherever, however, and whenever they choose.
