This Startup is Developing a Restaurant Management Platform Using Machine Learning and Computer Vision Technology for Restaurants to See Where Food Orders Go Wrong

Artificial intelligence has invaded a variety of businesses, with the restaurant industry being one of the most recent to do so, owing to the global pandemic and the necessity to convert to online ordering. That demand is only increasing. According to Market Study Report, the global restaurant management software industry is expected to grow about 15% annually to $6.95 billion by 2025. In 2021, 60% of Americans purchased takeout or delivery at least once every week, with 31% using a third-party delivery service.

Agot AI is a food-service-focused forerunner in the computer vision (AI) technology revolution that is reshaping industries worldwide. The Pennsylvania-based company claims that it has created a solution that verifies order accuracy in real-time for online ordering and alerts personnel if an order has to be corrected. For example, if any key ingredient like cheese or ketchup is forgotten. With the rise of internet ordering and drive-thru, this technology could become increasingly beneficial.

Agot AI’s latest $12 million fundraising round will allow the company to expand its team of engineers and pilot programs with some of the leading QSR (Quick Service Restaurant) companies. Agot claims that it will also add more features to their product to enhance the customer and employee experience in-store, in the drive-thru, and behind the counter.

To improve order accuracy and customer happiness, Agot employs computer vision technologies. Employees are helped by the system, which uses computer vision technology in restaurant kitchens to ensure that meals are prepared accurately. The Agot technology may assist restaurant teams in becoming more productive by ensuring order accuracy, which benefits both employees and consumers.
