New White Paper from Custom Business Solutions Analyzes Restaurant Technology Solutions That Can Offset Higher Minimum Wages

(IRVINE, CA) May 20, 2016 – A new White Paper from Custom Business Solutions Inc. (CBS) takes a look at new technologies available to help the restaurateur save money, cut costs and improve operations to offset higher minimum wages.

The White Paper, “Turning to Restaurant Technologies to Tackle Rising Labor Costs,” is available free for downloading at http://northstarrestaurantpos.com/.

Minimum wage increase restaurant technology“With the inevitability and expense of high minimum wages, restaurant businesses are facing smaller margins, price increases and layoffs – and they’re considering as a solution raising their menu prices and/or some form of staff cuts and hours,” said Art Julian, CEO of Custom Business Solutions “But our White Paper provides the restaurateur with different solutions – ways to absorb the expense using newer technologies.”

The White Paper examines an array of solutions, from software-based labor-management programs to restaurant inventory tools, from tabletop tablets to mobile-payment solutions, and from POS kiosk systems to digital recipe books. It also provides examples of these products at work in leading restaurants.

“The reality of a nationwide $15-an-hour minimum wage is in the offing, for sure, but we’re not there yet,” Julian said. “There’s still time for restaurant operators of all sizes to tap into new technologies to mitigate the consequences of these increases. Our White Paper makes for a useful guide in their planning.”
