Tablet-Based Restaurant Trivia Games

Buzztime Encourages Customers to Stay Longer and Spend More

— January 17, 2018 — Lifestyle
Often times, dining out can become a bit repetitive, and even a struggle when kids are involved, but with forms of interactive entertainment like Buzztime available, restaurants can increase levels of engagement with their guests, and in effect, increase their profits.

Buzztime works by connecting to the TVs within restaurants, which then turn into digital game boards that customers can interact with through tablets. Buzztime offers a wide range of different options, including over 20 different trivia challenges, and solo arcade games. With the tablets available, guests can have some fun while bonding with their friends and families, and rambunctious kids can direct their attention to the games, making for a more peaceful experience for parents and servers alike. With this, Buzztime prompts customers to linger for more time at restaurants, which leads them to order more food and drinks.

In addition to the games Buzztime offers, customers can also browse and order from the menu from the tablets, and even pay and tip on them when they're finished.
