Verkada Reviews for Hospitality Management
Improve Product Placement and Inventory Management “Now we know why certain food items do better in sales than others; display arrangements, how frequently fridges are restocked… things like that… all help us make more informed business decisions. In the event that ingredients are missing or running low, we can trace back to when that delivery was supposed to take place and verify what happened."

Scalable Coverage Across Key Sites “We cover virtually every entrance and exit of the buildings… indoor cameras cover dining rooms and POS areas; we (also) monitor back of house and have outdoor cameras (that) focus on patio areas and parking lots. We’re confident that we’re covering all critical areas in our restaurants.” Hugh Tullos, Risk & Safety Manager, Torchy’s Tacos Read Full Verkada Review >
Ensure Food Safety and Handling “Fresh baked goods and incredible coffee–that’s what our brand is built on. That’s why proper training is so critical; we set high standards for those involved in keeping up that expectation. We monitor food and coffee prep stations because we feel accountable for serving up safe, tasty food. If ever we need to examine how teams are being trained, or how food is being prepared, we have footage to reference.” Brett Parker, Head of Properties, GAIL’s Bakery Read Full Verkada Review >
