Telco giant AT&T has announced it is working with Squadle, a company which develops wireless technology for the restaurant industry, to simplify restaurant management using Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities.
The AT&T Control Center will power Squadle Checklists, Squadle's service management solution, which remotely monitors tasks, inventory and even refrigerator and freezer temperatures.
Squadle develops tools and apps towards automating back of house tasks for multi-unit restaurants – bringing time and money savings. The solution provides managers with interactive checklists that alert users when tasks are incomplete or a refrigeration system is irregular. The solution provides information updates in near real-time.
Le Zhang, founder and CEO, Squadle, said: “The average fast food restaurant is run on paper. This connected solution replaces that outdated and potentially inaccurate method. The AT&T IoT platform offers flexibility, scalability and reliability – features that simplify processes for our customers.”
Joe Mosele, vice president of IoT solutions at AT&T, said: “Businesses today need to be agile. And in the fast-paced world of quick-service restaurants, agility is even more important. The AT&T wireless network will help Squadle give restaurants a simple and more reliable management experience.”
