The window of time between a hot, delicious meal and a cold plate is small, and restaurants know that creating happy customers means operating within this timeframe. But in larger spaces, or self-seating locations, offering timely table service isn’t always easy. To keep diners  happy and the orders coming, restaurants are turning to RAIN RFID to make sure customers get food while it's hot.

Intelligent Table Service uses a­ffordable and disposable RAIN RFID tags integrated into paper receipts or cards. The Impinj platform uses RAIN RFID technology that is battery-free, easy to deploy and provides real-time identification of customer location, whether seated or on the move.

How it Works


Customers receive a card or disposable receipt containing a RAIN RFID tag after placing their order at a counter or self-serve kiosk.


RAIN RFID gateways installed overhead in restaurant dining rooms track customer movement and pinpoint their location.


Restaurant staff­ sees the location of the waiting customer in real-time on a map and delivers food without delay.

RAIN RFID solutions let restaurant management gain insight into traffic patterns, service level metrics and other analytics based on actual data.
