Tipping: Good or Bad?

Lately I've been hearing a lot of debates about whether or not tipping is good for servers and diners. On the one hand, tipping is not generally based on performance and gives servers an unreliable income. On the other, it creates incentives and increases a servers opportunity to make more money. Here's a few articles I've read recently with some good information. I would love to hear some thoughts and personal expeirneces!

Restaurant Loyalty Programs- Worth It?

Lately I've been reading a lot about restaurant loyalty programs and whether or not they are worth it. The Menu Shoppe recently wrote about how loyalty programs increase revenue. I was sold until I read this blog post about how they reduce profits. I am hoping to hear from small restaurant owners who have used these programs and can talk about their results. So restaurant owners, what do you say? Is a restaurant loyalty program worth the effort?

In the News

Livio LauroSouthern Wine & Spirits of Nevada’s senior director of key accounts, and Armando Rosario, Southern’s director of mixology in Orlando, Florida, perused multiple bookstores before finally putting pen to paper. “We noticed that the cocktail book scene has become an interesting story: 500 recipes, 700 recipes, 800 recipes, 1,000 recipes, 2,000 recipes—the more the better,” Lauro says. So rather than contribute a tome boasting 2,001 recipes, they did the next logical thing: The Twelve Cocktails Everyone Needs to Know ($15,TwelveCocktails.com).

It gets better: How digital media will improve in 2016

The past few years have focused on ad tech plumbing and circuit boards, but not enough on what goes in the boxes and inventory that is so meticulously served up. Now, creative and media are coming back together in ways that they never have before. And, with the rise of new and useful publishing mediums, there are ways to serve up interesting things in ways that are harmonious and empathetic to the end user. This isn’t always a scalable thing you can do by buying via API. It requires human touch, and intuition, backed by smart tech and analytics.

Inside Philips’ digital transformation strategy

Dutch tech and healthcare giant Philips has been in the smart-product creation business for some time. Now 12- years-old, the Amsterdam-based conglomerate generates $25 billion in sales with 108,000 employees spread across 60 countries. Change -- and consistency -- don't come easily at that size. And yet. Philips global head of digital Blake Cahill came on board 26 months ago, tasked with one audacious assignment: create digital harmony between Philips’ 10 businesses and get all staff and markets to the same level in digital. That has meant that while Philips uses agencies, it is bringing more capabilities in-house.
