A real digital 3.0 experience for Telefónica employees

Leveraging Telefónica On The Spot Services, Telefónica’s IoT unit specialized in digital signage and digital transformation of physical environments, Sodexo has reimagined the employee restaurant experience redesigning the entire premises and creating a new dynamic and more efficient space by integrating the latest digital services and offering a personalised experience to each customer.

Telefónica On the Spot Services working with Sodexo have created an immersive experience through the use of multiple digital screens showing news, nutritional information, offers and dynamic content.
