Panasonic recently announced a new strategic partnership with PodID to enable restaurant guests to pay for their orders at drive-thrus and kiosks using their face. The PopID technology, including the Pop Wallet, will be integrated into Panasonic’s ClearConnect Kiosk to allow restaurants to install the hardware, software, and UI/UX designs needed for self-order restaurant kiosks.
Once guests arrive at a kiosk, they will recognized and shown their previous orders as well as their loyalty account with the specific restaurant. Not only does this increase safety by limiting person-to-person contact, but the software also reduces payment processing costs. Currently, there are a variety of restaurant chains using PopID technology such as CaliBurger, Deli Time, Belcamp, Dairi-O, Plant Power, Port of Subs, and Belcampo, among others.
