Technology company makes golden commitment to UK restaurants
Leading hospitality software company NFS Technology Group has announced its backing of the Restaurant Association’s 50th Birthday Dinner this year.
NFS provides software to restaurants, bars and hotels across the country, and has chosen to be a Gold Sponsor of the anniversary event at The Savoy in London, on 26 February.
Chief Executive Luis De Souza says that NFS is delighted to celebrate the many achievements of the dynamic UK restaurant industry.
“We know these remain challenging times for many restaurants, but over the last few years we have seen many new concepts developing and restaurants opening in the UK,” he said.
“We’re sure this should help sustain a vibrant sector for the years to come. We know, though, that along with these exciting new developments there are many challenges for the sector, including looming labour shortages, increasing costs and the effects of Brexit.
“We feel responding to all of these challenges is our collective responsibility as the suppliers to this important part of the economy.
“We’ve seen successful restaurant operators adopt well-proven strategies to contain their costs, build a closer engagement with their customers and adopt smart solutions to deliver superb guest experiences.”
An international technology company serving the hospitality market, NFS provide a significant range of solutions for restaurants, meeting venues, bars and hotels, serving more than 1,000 UK hospitality businesses.
“More and more we deliver cloud-based solutions for our customers, enabling rapid deployment, low start up costs and a scalable solution,” said Luis.
NFS’ user-friendly solutions have been developed by leading global hospitality companies including NCR.
NFS clients include pub company Brew Dog, Argentinian steak house chain Gaucho/CAU, Giraffe, Honest Burgers and Indian casual dining specialists Dishoom in London.
“They rely on our technology to manage all aspects of their food and beverage operation,” said Luis. “We are increasingly an IT partner for our clients, providing both technology and best practice advice.
“This includes streamlining order taking, delivering excellent customer service through mobile ordering, managing stock, managing labour costs and food waste, and encouraging customer loyalty.
“NFS technology also supports efficient decision-making thanks to mobile reporting and Business Intelligence information.”
At the 50th celebration, special VIP guests invited by NFS will join other influential figures in the restaurant industry to celebrate everything that makes UK restaurants great.
The event will also raise funds for the charity Action Against Hunger.
Speakers include chairman David Lowie (), and Robert Walton MBE, president of The Restaurant Association.
Ufi Ibrahim, Chief Executive of the British Hospitality Association and The Restaurant Association said: “The Restaurant Association’s 50th Birthday Dinner is an important opportunity to acknowledge our industry’s advances over the last half century and, at this critical moment, prepare for the future.”
