Buck the Trend. Reduce Average Drive-Thru Wait Times

Across the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry, average drive-thru wait times are up 4% year over year. Beat this increasing trend by optimizing your drive-thru experience with mobile location.

With Bluedot, customers can bypass both the speaker box and the payment window, heading straight to the pick-up window. Hyper-accurate geofencing allows you to more efficiently sequence orders in the drive-thru and prioritize kitchen tickets to deliver fresh-off-the-grill food for mobile orders.

Bluedot Tempo: Predictive Time-Based Arrival Technology

Understand ETA with Bluedot Tempo

Build more efficient kitchen operations for mobile orders.

With Tempo, QSRs can understand customers’ estimated time of arrival (ETA) via the app.

This allows more efficient use of your resources to fire off tickets at the right time – ensuring food freshness. Say goodbye to soggy fries, melted ice drinks, and luke-warm burgers.

Tempo understands that distance is heavily influenced by traffic patterns, topography, commute hours, and mode of transport. Tempo’s time-based arrival technology takes into account that coming from 2 miles east of the drive-thru may take twice as long as coming from 2 miles west at rush hour.

QSRs make better real-time decisions with Tempo, operating more efficiently at greater volumes, especially during lunch and dinner hours.

Achieve higher throughput, serve more cars.
