Integrators are changing the way they do business during COVID-19, and so are local food purveyors. Perhaps there’s an opportunity for both parties to benefit?
Ritron is offering a package of products they’re calling “The Essentials for Curbside Pickup” in response to restaurants across the country who are only allowed to purvey if their customers order takeout and then call upon arrival. While the restriction is a potential boon for health safety, it has created some problems for the food industry, especially for popular local businesses.
“Businesses changing their operating model to curbside pickup need communications solutions now. We advise them to place a compact and durable 2-way radio callbox at a designated parking area, or mounted at the front door,” says the company in a press release.
“With portable radios or a fixed-location desktop base station in place inside, this setup allows patrons to announce their arrival and collect their food order.”
