Bridging the restaurant ecosystem


While every restaurant is unique, there is one prevailing similarity: they all need a reliable solution for restaurant operations to run smoothly.

Savvy restauranteurs need a savvy system to help understand their restaurants better—a system that offers a way to deeply customize their customer interfaces while updating them in real time based on internal and external restaurant events. The ideal system would also improve restaurant staff interaction and reduce service times while increasing the average check. Enter Bridge.

With a team dedicated to providing the smartest customer journeys, Acrelec creates people-centered experiences driven by real customer insight. Bridge is the latest and most advanced integrated ecosystem from Acrelec, connecting all your customer interfaces to intelligent decision-making algorithms, enabling restaurants to run more efficiently, provide better customer experiences and increase return on investment.

The Acrelec Builder is a web back-office that allows you to enrich the interfaces of the screens within your restaurants. The injector enables Bridge data to be formatted to fit in the POS for reporting, with data exchanged between the Builder and the POS, and POS data transformed into the Bridge format via the importer. Meanwhile, the Acrelec Transformation Platform (ATP) enables remote management of the entire device fleet.

  • AI-Based Content Management: Algorithms automatically adapt your interfaces to increase sales and serve faster.
  • AB Testing: Continuously improves your customer’s interfaces with 30 of the most important KPIs to compare user interfaces.
  • Open Web Technology & APIs: Developers can pull Acrelec’s front-end source code to edit customer interfaces and connect their solution to Bridge by suggesting their own plugins.

So, why do you need it?
