“We will continue to improve on these operational digital systems to ensure the best fan satisfaction on Sundays,” Shawn Walchef wrote to his digital and operations team as everyone prepared for the excitement of the 2019 season of the National Football League.

The San Diego area restaurant and sports bar managers maintain a detailed cloud-based spreadsheet that shows which television is airing what games and events at what time. Because the file is hosted on the Internet “cloud” it can be updated and accessed remotely by anyone on the team. It changes in realtime as it is updated so the information is always current and easy to find.

The CaliBBQ.Media blog will host more information like this to help sports bar owners, and others, win on NFL Sunday.

That’s what Digital Hospitality is all about. Using all the tools available online and off to ensure the best experience for customers.
