Ghirardelli Chocolate Company
Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, renowned for its premium chocolate products and commitment to customer satisfaction, continuously seeks innovative solutions to enhance efficiency and improve the overall customer experience. To optimize customer efficiency, Ghirardelli at the Disney Springs Location in Orlando FL implemented the Smartstack Evo Paging Solution, a cutting-edge technology that revolutionized their operations and streamlined customer interactions.
Ghirardelli faced several challenges related to customer efficiency and satisfaction. These challenges included:
● Order Fulfillment: Ghirardelli often experiences high customer traffic, particularly during peak hours, leading to longer wait times for order fulfillment. This affected customer satisfaction and could potentially discourage repeat visits.
● Table Management: Managing table turnover in the café section was a complex task, especially during busy periods. Ensuring efficient seating arrangements and minimizing waiting times were crucial to enhance the customer experience.
● Customer Communication: Ghirardelli aimed to provide clear and timely communication with customers, keeping them informed about their order status and minimizing any confusion or uncertainty.
To address these challenges and improve customer efficiency, Ghirardelli implemented the Smartstack Evo Paging Solution.
This innovative technology offered the following benefits:
● Efficient Customer Paging: The Smartstack Evo Paging Solution facilitates efficient customer paging. Upon arrival, customers receive a pager. Instead of waiting in line, customers have the flexibility to explore the store or nearby areas until their order is ready or a table becomes available. This eliminates the frustration of long queues, making their experience more enjoyable.
● Optimized Table Management: The Smartstack Evo Paging Solution assists Ghirardelli in optimizing table turnover in the café area. When a table becomes available, staff members can notify waiting customers through the paging system. This proactive approach minimizes waiting times, ensures efficient seating arrangements, and improves overall customer flow, enhancing the dining experience.
● Enhanced Staff Coordination: The Smartstack Evo Paging Solution improves staff coordination and communication. Ghirardelli staff members can easily communicate with each other using the solution's messaging features. For example, when an order is ready, the kitchen staff can notify the café staff, who can then alert the customer through the paging system. This seamless coordination streamlines order handovers and minimizes any potential delays or miscommunications.
The implementation of the Smartstack Evo Paging Solution yielded significant improvements for Ghirardelli, enhancing customer efficiency and satisfaction in the following ways:
● Reduced Wait Times: The Smartstack Evo Paging Solution minimized wait times for order fulfillment and table availability, resulting in a more efficient and enjoyable experience for customers. This decreased customer frustration and increased overall satisfaction.
● Streamlined Operations: Ghirardelli experienced streamlined operations, ensuring smoother coordination among staff members. This resulted in improved order accuracy, faster order preparation, and more seamless handovers, contributing to a more efficient customer experience.
● Enhanced Table Turnover: With optimized table management, Ghirardelli improved table turnover in the café area. Customers experienced shorter waiting times, allowing them to enjoy their meals and beverages without unnecessary delays, leading to higher customer satisfaction.

By streamlining order fulfillment, facilitating efficient customer paging, optimizing table management, improving staff coordination, and enabling personalized engagement, Ghirardelli enhanced their operations and delivered exceptional experiences to their valued customers.
