Flash RFI Video Series

Flash RFI Video Library

Welcome to Flash RFI, a video series brought to you by Restaurant CIOs and the Restaurant Technology Network. This video series helps restaurants by serving up time-boxed, apples-to-apples video introductions to various restaurant technologies. Browse videos and categories to uncover concise answers to your exploratory questions before you decide on a formal RFP.

"As a long-time restaurant CIO and advisor, I have always found it challenging to qualify the best solution candidates for a particular need. With this series of quick-hit videos, restaurants can narrow the field when it comes to sourcing the best fit for them, while learning what each solution provider deems as its primary differentiator, to cut through the noise." -Joe Tenczar, Co-Founder, Restaurant CIOs & RTN Board of Governors

The goal of the Flash RFI is for restaurants to walk away with a clear picture of how vendors match up, and narrow the playing field when it comes making their next tech decision.
