As the name suggests, recommendation engine gives recommendations and helps a customer choose meals based on their eating preferences. How does it help your restaurant? Consider this system as the engine of your restaurant, which helps you convert complex user information into sheer power such as gasoline into motion, to generate more revenues and thus drive your restaurant with higher ROI’s. Such systems are driven by complex algorithms which are adopted to uncomplex user experience and help service providers enhance revenues. Let us see how recommendation engines can prove a crucial factor in determining success at your restaurant and longevity of your business.
There are four different ways a recommendation engine works:
Basic; works by recommending items which are based on a similarity comparison between the content/feature(s) of the items and user’s profile. In other words, what items each user likes in comparison to the content of the items and then discovers what else that user may like.
Complex; works without the feature/content of the items and works on the algorithm which considers user behaviour for recommending items. Simply put, this method recommends items by identifying other users with similar taste and uses their opinion to recommend items to new users.
Advanced; combination of content-based and collaborative filtering method.
Advanced; this method works by predicting missing item-user preferences. For instance, you have the purchase history of all users and by using this method you could recommend which product a user might purchase next; relying on the assumption that people would purchase the same product in the future, as they did in the past.
