MURTEC Day 1 Highlights: Metaverse, Security & More

“We create tools to solve challenges,” said Diffly.  “We look for universal problems we can solve together.” 

Diffly recapped some of RTN’s accomplishments to date, including the RTN Open API Standard, Restaurant Technology Framework, the Fast-Match Tool, Off Prem Playbook,  Cyber Security, numerous technical documentations and more that are available online at under Resources.

One of the biggest challenges restaurants face is integrations, Diffly explained, adding that the RTN Open API framework is “foundational” to drive standardization across the industry.  

“Our battle cry is adoption,” Diffly said. 

At MURTEC 2023, RTN is launching Restaurant KPI Tools with over 100 KPIs.
