Restart corporate cafeteria safely with SmartQ’s contactless cafeteria solution


Contactless cafeteria


As workplaces reopen their doors to their employees amidst the new normal, SmartQ’s contactless cafeteria solutions help corporates minimize COVID risks.


Safety is a top priority at workplaces, and cafeterias are no exception. They are usually a high touch zone and it is often hard to maintain safe distances. Many corporates always see long queues, long waiting times, and less seating capacity at cafeterias.


With SmartQ’s digital cafeteria solutions, corporates can truly go contactless. Here’s how:


SmartQ helps workplaces digitize cafeteria operations. That means no more queues, no more manual payments, and less room for human error. Payments can be accepted digitally ensuring a much clearer account as opposed to handling physical cash and card receipts.


How does that work? An app-based solution helps employees go through the menus in advance, place, and pay for their orders. At the backend, the food staff can prep the orders and alert the employees once the food is ready. This helps avoid any congestion at the collection counters and makes for a smooth experience.


Going cashless and paperless are also great ways to be mindful of the environment and reduce unnecessary use of paper. Contactless experiences come as the biggest solution to survive a global pandemic. With cafeteria operations shifting online, minimal physical contact is ensured curbing the risk drastically.


Introducing SmartQ’s Cafe Pass


The Smart Pass enables every employee to see the list of all the available slots & the available seats in each slot. Based on the schedule and convenience of the employee, they can book the desired slot and also order the food in advance. This slot-based allocation algorithm eliminates the problem in the red graph (below) and flattens the curve by dynamically managing cafe occupancy.

The application is easy to download and use. Employees download the SmartQ lite app, select the time slot they wish to visit the cafeteria, book their cafe pass, and pre-order their food. This drastically reduces congestion and leads to a smooth experience.


The app helps reduce physical interaction, offers digital transaction capabilities, and is designed to swiftly go through booking processes. Post selection of Cafe pass, employees can explore the menu of the cafeteria and order the food in a jiffy.
