MURTEC 2024 Wrap

We were fortunate to get a pass from Angela Diffly to send a reporter to MURTEC and get some pictures. We participate on the RTN Framework group (and you should too). In any case here are some pictures from MURTEC.

MURTEC is THE restaurant technology networking event.  Waiting line to apply for participation and not cheap. We were super fortunate that Angela extended free pass to one of our people.

Be sure and check out the Panasonic Connect Stingray kiosk and POS terminal that was shown at MURTEC. Pictures below and here is writeup.

Comments and Opinions

  • Toast – been awhile since we saw a swipe MSR. Remind us of NCR units
  • Ingenico – always the best selection and standards adherence
  • Bite — not sure how you pay here. Nice Elo touchscreen
  • Tray — We like the UI. I wonder if KIOSK did that (they do software as well as hardware).
  • QikServe — again not sure where to order though “warts” are never attractive. Reminds me of Elo or Olea
  • Tillster — Burger King unit might be the ugliest one of them all. Looks like social loyalty almost top billing. Kudos for identifying client.
  • MURTEC stage – couple of very helpful people here. Angela Diffly and Robert Peterson of Oracle.  I used to be sour on Ellison and Oracle but Robert has rehabilitated me and got me off the Group W bench
  • Panasonic CONNECT- that is the biggest StingRay display I have ever seen. Panasonic branded kiosks on tap now. 750 combinations, how about that printer, 18.5 or 21 inch. Software is agnostic which BYOS if you like. Generally Windows though given Intel 11th gen i-5. Sounds like an Android version available. POS device is side mount Wart.

Thanks to Logan Amstey with TPGi for the photos. TPGi is a subsidiary of Vispero provider of JAWS Kiosk for companies such as McDonalds and the SSA.

Here is our preview

Every year MURTEC comes around and we think about going. It’s one of the more exclusive events and is the ultimate restaurant technology networking events.

We participate in Restaurant Technology Network (RTN) workgroups on frameworks for restaurants and ROI. Some of the people we work with includes Angela Diffly of RTN and Robert Peterson of Oracle.

“This year, the Restaurant Technology Network (RTN) is showing up in full force at MURTEC,” commented Angela Diffly, co-founder of RTN. “We could not be more proud of the work we’ve done in the past five years, particularly in the way of industry standardization. On stage at MURTEC we’ll showcase an industry first: a real-world adoption case study of RTN’s Customer Record Data Standard. Industry standards are taking hold, and this will shape the future of restaurant technology in such powerfully positive ways.” For more information about RTN events on the ground at MURTEC 2024, including RTN’s Start-Up Alley and Ring of Fire competitions, visit
