3. Technology showcase

Going digital in your restaurant does sound appealing! But what exactly does this involve? The ITHQ has put this digital approach to the test by integrating innovative Québec technologies into its own restaurant, the Restaurant de l’ITHQ

This new “technology showcase” allows us to concretely demonstrate to restaurateurs how new technologies can be used to facilitate their operations. Furthermore, thanks to the experience acquired by our professionals, we can provide restaurateurs with valuable knowledge on not only the advantages and the challenges, but also the pitfalls to avoid when it comes to implementing new technologies in a restaurant. 

4. Restaurant services technology solutions directory

In partnership with the MT Lab, the ITHQ offers a free directory of innovative solutions for the restaurant industry. 

Whether it is for managing reservations, online orders, human resources or inventory, this catalogue will allow you to discover a wide range of applications and digital programs designed to facilitate the management of all aspects of your business.
