Mary Pat Heftman, president of the Restaurant Show Group, explains “Innovation in the foodservice industry seems to be growing exponentially. I’m impressed year after year by the ideas and creativity of our Startup Alley exhibitors.” LISNR will bring the future of payments to the National Restaurant Show shortly for all restaurants that want to make sure their drive-thrus, pick-up methods, and payments continue to exceed customer expectations.
After 100 years of restaurant innovation at the Restaurant Show, it’s only fitting that a next generation payment and customer engagement platform be on display for restaurant professionals and beyond to experience first-hand. While a number of POS systems have historically been on display, LISNR is the first ever payment technology at the National Restaurant Show that uses sound waves to order and transact. Heftman goes on to say, “If restaurant operators want to see what’s next in foodservice, they must visit Startup Alley.”
Mobile innovation is increasing at a rapid clip in the restaurant industry, but many operators are finding it hard to keep up. QSR Magazine found that 62% of restaurant operators worry they will not keep up with the mobile future of their industry. That is why it is so important for LISNR to exhibit at the National Restaurant Association show this year; to bring a new vision for mobile payments and engagements that utilizes existing hardware and infrastructure within restaurants.
LISNR is known for their ultrasonic payment solution that can be implemented at the drive-thru and in-restaurant to verify customer identity and automatically send encrypted payment details from a customer’s mobile device straight to the POS that the cashier is using, improving the security and ease of all payments within the QSR ecosystem. Mobile is the future of QSRs and leaders in the space are starting to make investments and try out technologies to make sure they can get ahead of their competitors.
LISNR® powers transactions across the customer journey for retailers and restaurants globally with the most advanced Ultrasonic Data Platform. Today, companies like Jaguar Land Rover, Ticketmaster, and Visa use this solution to create secure & frictionless moments for consumers around the world. Founded in 2012, LISNR is located in Oakland, CA and Cincinnati, OH. Major investors include Intel, Jump Capital, Mercury Fund, R/GA, and Synchrony Financial.
