Don’t call the Navy low-tech. Even their dining rooms are on the cutting edge.
The five-star restaurant in the Pentagon that plays host to top Navy officials and high profile guests will use iPads to place orders and print checks, NextGov reported.
The Navy issued a solicitation June 25 for a new executive dining facility software system. The system will function like those used in restaurants across the country to track food orders in real time and send those orders to the kitchen. However, most restaurants have low-end touchscreens, not Apple tablets.
Bob Brewin, author of NextGov’s “What’s Brewin'” blog on defense IT, calls the move a good a way to start getting tablets on the minds of top officials in the Navy and Marine Corps chain of command.
Is this how you would be spending Navy dollars?
