EPICURE DIGITAL THE CURE FOR THE MENU BORED

Epicure Digital INTEGRATED WITH COMPUTRITION HOSPITALITY SUITE®

Computrition has awarded Dartmouth College as the first place winner of the eighth annual Prodigy Award for substantial advancements in on-campus dining services by way of automation: with the use of Epicure Digital Menu Boards integrated with Computrition solutions, Dartmouth displays real-time menu choices, allergen and nutritional information as well as religious classification. The use of automation as opposed to manually typed-out allergen information on the menus reduces the chance of typos and human error. The savings seen with the integration of Computrition and Epicure has been 40 administrative hours per week and approximately $75 per week in paper and toner supplies...By streamlining the menu board systems for both ’53 Commons and Courtyard Café, supervisors and managers have been able to spend less time on the computer and more time on the floor. This allows for increased customers service which in turn creates a more satisfied customer base; increasing the bottom line.

Network Configuration Plan with Computrition® Integration

This Epicure Digital Menu System (”System”) uses our Epicure Digital Centra Cloud Server (”Server”) to integrate with Computrition Hospitality Suite to control, maintain and schedule menus and content on Samsung Smart Signage Platform (“SSSP”) LED LCDs. Its Online Menu module includes hyperlinks for posting your daily menus on your website for viewing on computers, smart phones and tablets. You will control the System via a web browser (Chrome, Firefox or Safari) on any computer, Windows® or Mac®, that has Internet access to our Server.

 

Samsung SSSP LED LCDs include Ethernet and WiFi (WPA 2 Personal security only) network connections and the Samsung Smart Signage Platform software and hardware for making each LCD its own media player. Each SSSP LCD is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core system-on-chip with 2.5GB, LPDDR4 1.5GHz 64 Bit main interface memory and 8GB FDM. It provides a powerful streamlined solution for receiving and displaying its content, reducing the need for a separate media player and reducing the total cost of ownership in digital signage deployments through savings in hardware installation and operating costs. You may use existing LCDs and media players if you can configure the media player to launch the Google Chrome browser to open in kiosk mode and to resolve to our Server upon power up; and you assume all responsibility for the maintenance and management of the media players. Whenever one of these LCDs or its media player becomes defective, we would like the pair to be replaced with a single SSSP LCD.

 

At each meal period, our Centra Server will query the Computrition Hospitality Suite Video Display Board XChange Gateway (“Gateway”) server typically installed within your firewalls on a virtual web server in a DMZ, never on the Production Server (or a cloud if set up that way), for the current menu data. The Gateway will then query its Production Server for the data, returning xml files to the Centra Server (private health information is unavailable to us) which are immediately composed into HTML5 pages along with all other content uploaded to our Server by you using its web-based content management system. Each SSSP LCD will then connect to the Centra Server via the LCD’s Ethernet or WiFi (WPA2 Security only) connection to refresh itself with its new menu data and content. The LCDs may also require access to news and weather service RSS feeds external to your firewall.
