Restaurant chain puts the Internet of Things on its own menu to improve service

Yonghe King (Yong He Da Wang) restaurants, a popular quick-service chain in China with 300 locations, is using the Internet of Things to help it better manage the business and to expand to 1,000 stores by 2018.

Charles Yu, Windows Embedded BG Lead in China, writes that by using an intelligent system based on Microsoft technologies, the chain has increased profits, streamlined the process of opening new stores, gotten more control over inventory systems and improved customer service.

As an example, the system improves operational efficiency in the stores, he writes: It used to take five separate steps to order a meal; now it takes just three.
