Palmer Digital Group has completed a pilot program with a major QSR that confirms interoperability between its outdoor digital menu board systems (PDG QSRDMB155) and third-party Voice AI technology built into its network infrastructure.

The eight-month pilot program was tested at six of the QSR’s flagship stores, and the new Voice AI-enabled systems will begin deploying to stores early in 2024. Deployments are expected to continue into 2025.

PDG has recently adjusted design characteristics to ensure protection and reliable operability for the new Voice AI technology across the entire PDG ODMB product line. This includes a camera enclosure with swivel to track customers as they order, special speaker and mic enclosures, and electronic component enclosures, all of which protect against weather-related intrusions, vandalism and other damage. PDG’s ODMB series offers single, double, and triple display configurations, with display sizes of 46, 49, and 55 inches.

AI can provide a range of benefits for restaurant owners, from gaining insights into customer behaviors to automating tasks and improving efficiency. This customer was particularly interested in how Voice AI technology could bring additional layers of confidence to the customer, and shorten conversational flows to expedite the ordering process and reduce the time of each customer journey.

"We worked closely with our customer's preferred software vendor to ensure that our combined solution would help drive-thrus improve speed of service," said Chuck Lewis, Vice President, Palmer Digital Group. "Our ODMB's are achieving this through bright high-quality displays that provide plenty of real estate for menu item presentation, and adding this Voice AI option further accelerates the ordering process through simple voice prompts that keep the conversation moving forward step by step. This same technology will make it easier for our customer to track orders and ensure they are being prepared as quickly as possible."
