Due to their popularity, more restaurants are considering a double or dual drive-thru to reduce lane length and wait times for customers. The 3M Drive-Thru Basestation G5 frees up premium wall space, works with both the 3M G5 and XT-1 headset systems, and can easily be upgraded from a single- to a dual-lane system within minutes, right in the store. Restaurants can boost worker productivity with the 3M Drive-Thru Basestation G5's new built-in greeter, which can be used to promote key menu items with customers. Managers benefit from the ability to create alerts and reminders to increase compliance and keep team members on task. 3M's built-in greeter can record up to 16 messages—each up to 10 seconds in length—and messages can be scheduled by daypart and easily upload to the basestation. Boost customer satisfaction by improving order accuracy with 3M Advanced Noise Reduction, which offers superior digital sound quality at the order point. Workers benefit from Acoustic Echo Cancellation and Spread Spectrum, reducing echoes and interference for clearer sound, while Automatic Gain Control keeps volume levels steady and strong. This new digital basestation, combined with a new menu post speaker and foam-enclosed microphone, delivers superior sound and clearer communication between the order taker and the customer.
