IT for Food: Lufthansa Industry Solutions expands its scope in the system-catering sector

Norderstedt, May 31, 2017 – Lufthansa Industry Solutions is adding system catering to its In-Flight Services division and offering its IT solutions to operators of chain restaurants and delivery services. This IT service provider has already been offering consulting services to companies in the airline-catering sector for more than fifteen years.

Whether they run a delivery service or a fast-food chain, system caterers have to satisfy ever more demanding guests. For this to succeed, they should take advantages of the opportunities offered by the digital transformation in order to improve materials requirements planning, production, and product development. The idea is to find new solutions that optimize the entire value creation process while at the same time ensuring high levels of quality and customer satisfaction.

Chain restaurants and especially system caterers can make use of new technologies that make them faster, smarter, and more efficient. Here are a few examples of applications:

  • Use data analysis to better plan material requirements: patterns and connections for a wide variety of requirements for material quantities can be identified and reliable predictions of requirements generated using data analyses.
  • Transfer recipe changes to production in real time: digitizing processes reduces manual efforts needed to adjust production data and speed up production processes.
  • Develop new products on the basis of customer feedback: big data analytics help caterers collect and evaluate customer feedback.

Lufthansa Industry Solutions provides support for caterers with the necessary digitization of their processes and planning procedures.
