Compass Group: Connecting patrons to food services with digital signage menus


Compass Group, a global food service provider, wanted to move away from paper-based menus used in cafeterias and cafes it operates in the Netherlands and Belgium. The company sought an engaging yet easy-to-maintain digital signage solution that would offer an improved user experience for workers and students. Working with digital signage provider Digitopia, Compass Group chose Chromebox devices and ChromeOS to support 100 screens in Belgium and 20 in the Netherlands—offering relevant, updated content to food service patrons.

Improved Engagement with Less Maintenance

Chromeboxes allow Compass Group to create menus displaying rich content, such as frequent menu updates and stories about food service workers and local food purveyors. The compact Chromeboxes are easy to install and can be updated and rebooted centrally by the company’s partner, Digitopia. Compass Group manages content for each screen individually, using Chrome Enterprise license as well as a content management system created by Digitopia.

Menus are more than just lists—they tell stories about the food we offer and where it comes from. Chromeboxes and digital signage are inspiring us to communicate in new ways with the people we serve.
