CHICAGO – (May 15, 2015) – Apex Supply Chain Technologies will introduce Secure Self-Serve Solutions for today’s on-the-go restaurant customer at the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago May 16-19. AnyWhere solutions with the Apex Pay mobile app and Trajectory™ Cloud perfectly suit restaurants seeking to enhance their relationships with today’s on-the-go customers as well as improving front and back-of-house efficiencies for their staff.

“Apex AnyWhere systems allow restaurants to make it even faster for customers to place an online order, skip the register, pick up their order from a stylish, sleek and secure locker and even pay with virtually no waiting. Customers will appreciate the automated convenience and time-savings, and use the service again and again.”

Kent Savage – Apex CEO

Apex Retail solutions are ideal for full serve, quick-serve and fast-casual restaurants. They are purpose-built to accommodate virtually any type of food or drink, both hot and cold. Restaurant staff can load from the rear, while customers pick up from the front, resulting in significant workflow efficiency.

The Apex Trajectory Cloud is the smarts behind the device, and serves as a single, secure, unified transaction platform, providing real-time service and delivery performance data. It also integrates easily with retailers’ existing systems to provide or enhance analytics and insights into buying behaviors, trends and loyalty preferences.

Secure Self-Serve Solutions will enable a wide range of scenarios to make to-go orders work across multiple channels. For example, a customer may use a smartphone to place a coffee order on their way to work. The drink is prepared and placed into a temperature-controlled, Apex smart locker system. When the customer arrives, they can skip the line, grab the drink from the locker, and be on their way.

Or a customer may order several dinner entrees from a full-service restaurant and click to indicate a time to pick up the food. The kitchen staff prepares the food and loads it into the locker. The customer can then pick up the purchase from the heated Apex smart locker system.
