Hellometer has just been announced as the winner of RTN’s Start-Up Alley competition at MURTEC.
Hellometer is the world’s first AI timer for QSRs. Their computer vision technology helps restaurants grow drive-thru and dining room revenue, using cameras to monitor and report on each guest’s experience. Hellometer is the world’s most complete drive-thru timer, the only dining room timer, and surveillance; all for what you’re already spending on security.
Start-Up Alley is the marquee new technology event at MURTEC, Restaurant Technology Networks’s annual conference. The judges — including Phil Crawford ( CTO, CKE), Astrid Isaacs (CTO, Bloomin’ Brands), and Tom Seeker (CIO, Earl Enterprises) — determined the top five tech solutions that then competed in a Shark-Tank style main-stage session on March 8.
