Cantaloupe’s booth at the National Restaurant Association Show will be highlighting:

CHEQ POS Kiosks: Available in attended or self-checkout mode, making ordering seamless across multiple revenue centers and empowering fans to self-service for reduced wait times.

CHEQ Mobile App: Enables fans or event-goers the ability to order food and beverages from anywhere in the venue, with flexible pick-up or in-seat delivery options.

Cantaloupe Smart Café: A fully locked cooler that enables true grab-and-go self-service with AI powered smart camera technology to charge the consumers card for the exact items they take out of the smart fridge.

Cantaloupe Micro Markets for hotel pantries: A one-stop shop for cabinetry, coolers and self-checkout kiosks with the Cantaloupe Go MiniX cashless acceptance kiosk, that simply leverages existing pantry space and converts it into a self-service mini-market in hotel lobbies, creating less burden on employees to manage checking in guests and ringing up pantry products and instead, creates a fully grab-and-go experience.

“As a global technology leader in self-service commerce, we are excited to showcase our solutions at the National Restaurant Association Show to industries that are seeking easier ways to seamlessly accept payments and create unique consumer experiences on the go,” Steiner added in the announcement.
