As the industry prepares to reopen, we know it is extremely difficult to anticipate and accurately plan for customer demand. Add supply chain availability challenges and reduced turnover to accommodate social distancing measures, and that adds a new level of cost and complexity to your reopening plans.
We know that many of you are looking to scale back your menus when you first reopen, to operate as efficiently and profitably as possible. We know you will want to be responsive to consumer demand and expand or reduce your product offering, quickly and efficiently, providing your customers with your latest menus.
With menu information needing to be available on a growing number of online systems and platforms, keeping all of these systems up to date with accurate information can be an administrative challenge and costly.
So, how can you quickly respond to trends and update and publish changes to your menu?
While printing single use menus each time your menu evolves addresses hygiene and safety concerns, it is neither cost effective nor environmentally friendly. That’s why Fourth has partnered with Ten Kites to give you an electronic solution to publish your menus, including nutritional and allergen data. To further ensure the safety of your staff and guests, you will be looking for ways to reduce interaction, whilst delivering the best customer experience possible.
With Ten Kites, you are able to instantly update your menus to your website, order at table solution, digital signage, labeling solution and more. Ten Kites is offering a simple, ready to use add-on to the Fourth platform that reduces the time and cost of publishing your menus, which will be available at no additional cost to Fourth’s Inventory Customers.
With this newly developed functionality, you can now give your customers access to your menu via their own mobile devices. They simply scan a QR code or short URL which lets them immediately access your most recent menu, helping you to adhere to social distancing measures and minimise interaction with the restaurant team to when it’s really needed.

Financial pressures are at an all-time high as we move into a second lockdown. We know supporting your employees’ financial and mental wellbeing is really important to you during these challenging times and hope that exploring Fourth X Wagestream will support you in these efforts, enabling you to give your team access to their furlough income on demand.
The hotel industry was faced with disruption and increased costs before the COVID-19 global pandemic. Since, restrictions on leisure and travel and new health & safety operating protocols have resulted in increased costs, fluctuating demand and reduced occupancy, covers and revenues, making it extremely challenging to operate profitably.
Suppliers serving the hospitality sector have unsurprisingly been adversely impacted by the pandemic, with reports of revenues of less than 10% of 2019 levels during the first lockdown.
