NASHVILLE, TN (December 2, 2020) – Cybera, the leader in SD-WAN application and security services for the network edge, has joined PivotBridge Partners, a leading provider of technology evaluation, implementation, and management services, to announce the launch of their first joint Speakeasy Webinar Series. Taking place once a month, from December 2020 through March 2021, the live interactive discussions will focus on the importance of improving the guest experience in the quick service restaurant (QSR) space. 

“The direction of the QSR industry was already focused on improving convenience. But the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year only magnified the importance of technology in delivering a better guest experience. Our goal is to help QSRs build a more adaptive, responsive and flexible technology infrastructure so they can thrive in today’s highly competitive marketplace,” said Sam Gray, Principal Consultant at PivotBridge Partners.

“With such a massive increase in online ordering and payment, network reliability and security have become top priorities for QSRs. The limited in-person interaction also means QSRs must elevate the digital experience they deliver to their guests. In both cases, technology is playing a much more prominent role throughout the entire industry,” said Rob Chapman, Director of Security Architecture at Cybera.

Speakeasy Schedule: 

● December 9, 2020 at 5:00 pm EST – Takeout and Drive-Through Experience (Part I)

● January 13, 2021 at 5:00 pm EST – Digital Ordering Enhancements that Cut through the Competition (Part II)

● February 10, 2021 at 5:00 pm EST – Self-Ordering Kiosks and Contactless Service (Part III)

● March 10, 2021 at 5:00 pm EST – How to Leverage Wi-Fi Analytics to Build Your Brand and Deliver Promotions (Part IV)
