Lightspeed leverages data and AI for new features

Lightspeed Commerce has released a roster of new product features for merchants. The features range from AI-powered menu creation to self-serve assortment planning and continued expansion of Lightspeed Payments.

“Merchants start businesses out of passion, not because they love spending hours on inventory, reconciliation or schedules,” Chief Product and Technology Officer Ryan Tabone said in a statement. “Our job as their technology partner is to empower them with the tools that simplify how they operate, so they can focus on their customers and scale their business. This latest round of new product features is the start of a string of functionality that gives them that ability, as well as an edge in their respective markets.”

Lightspeed Restaurant leverages AI, data and insights to help restaurateurs make smarter decisions, faster. Artificial intelligence helps a menu in seconds, rather than hours of inputting and updating the system. Advanced Insights includes menu quadrant and staff performance tools. Lightspeed Restaurant’s proprietary Advanced Insights tool got a boost with new features.
