IDS unveils restaurant tablet app at Dubai hotel show

Bangalore, May 16, 2012: India-headquartered, hospitality and leisure industries solutions leader IDS NEXT, will launch a tablet application for restaurants at the The Hotel Show, Dubai, this week. It will be the first offering under the Envy brand -- Envy Dine, a rich application, packed with features to recommend the available food and beverage options at the restaurant to guests. It intuitively senses what customers are looking for and directs them to the most requested items in a category. For example, if a guest is looking at meat options, it helps them find meat items they are most likely to enjoy.
"Envy is an intelligent, and user friendly range of solutions that has been developed to increase revenue, reduce costs and enhance guest experience for our customers" says Binu Mathews, President & COO, IDS NEXT, "The tablet based Envy Dine solution comes equipped with artificial intelligence to ease restaurant operations and enhance guests' dining experience".
The artificial intelligence in the Envy Dine application dynamically suggests offers and discounts to diners based on orders, providing intelligent reports and facilitating predictive analysis. The application allows hotels to up-sell and cross-sell with intelligence and the most interesting feature is that it provides business intelligence and decision support to the management through the interface with the IDS NEXT ERP system.
