We would like to introduce you to the impressive advantages of optical food recognition. The AI-supported solution automatically records menus and drinks via camera and records them in the cash register system. Cashless payment – optionally with a smartphone – significantly speeds up the entire checkout process.

The innovative technology, based on artificial intelligence, offers many advantages for community catering. We have listed the top 7 advantages for you.

The new all-in-one solution

In the video you can see our latest all-in-one device:

The innovative solution for optical food recognition does not require any external peripheral devices.

Thanks to the barcode scanner for mobile payment integrated into the cash register hardware, you neither need a card reader nor an EC terminal.

The sustainable and legally compliant e-receipt is displayed after purchase and saves an extra receipt printer.

A smart and slim overall solution even for company restaurants with little space.

Insider tip: This new hardware can also replace conventional cash register workstations.

Your top 7 advantages

1. You solve the problem of staff shortages

With optical food recognition, food and drinks are booked fully automatically in the cash register system using self-service. Ideal in times of staff shortages.

2. You increase your sales

Thanks to optical food recognition, more guests can be served in less time. The recognition and booking of food and drinks only takes a few seconds. This reduces waiting times in the company restaurant, increases throughput and increases sales.

3. You stand out from the competition

Optical food recognition shows the innovative strength and modernity of your company restaurant and sets you apart from the competition. The modern technology and intuitive use will delight your customers.

4. You have time for more important things

The AI-based software precisely and reliably recognizes all food and drinks that are trained and stored in the system. The software, which is individually trained for your product range, guarantees the highest recognition rates, so that you can concentrate on more important tasks.

5. You delight your customers

Your guests will appreciate a quick and easy payment system that minimizes waiting times and extends their lunch break. Delight your guests with a fast and modern payment system – increase their satisfaction and visit frequency.

6. You can trust in the acceptance of everyone involved

The operation of our optical food recognition is extremely intuitive and was developed in collaboration with UI experts. You can learn new dishes and drinks directly at the checkout. The intuitive interface guarantees a high level of acceptance among both your employees and your guests.

7. You adapt the cash register to your needs

With the new hybrid mode, a cash register can be used multifunctionally. Our hybrid mode allows you to switch between self-service and classic manned checkout at the touch of a button. You can flexibly adapt the cash register to different needs and situations without the need for additional hardware.

Customers are already benefiting from the advantages

“ventopay has been addressing the challenges in community catering for years and offers innovative, digital solutions in its overall system.

Due to the lack of staff, we have installed two self-service checkouts in the Caseli restaurants, which the guests are happy to use.

The completely automatic recognition by camera ensures that you can get through quickly at lunchtime and helps to avoid queues.

All guests can now simply scan and pay for lunch themselves – very intuitively and quickly.

The simple teach-in directly at the point-of-sale makes it possible to recognize all dishes – whether soup, main course, salad or dessert – in the shortest possible time.”
