Revenue management optimization: The SmartDex system records payment transactions and automatically calculates the total revenue generated. This facilitates easy revenue tracking for the event's vendors.

The integration of SmartDex with iTourism doesn't stop at ticketing; it extends to the sales processes of the booths within the Quang Nam Culinary Culture Festival 2023. Here's how it optimizes sales:

Electronic menus: All booths participating in the festival utilize the iTourism platform to create electronic menus. These menus provide comprehensive information about the products, dishes, and their respective prices. This digital approach expedites the ordering process for customers, making it quicker and more convenient.

Real-time revenue tracking: iTourism allows booth operators to monitor their daily revenue, even in real-time. The system automatically records orders and calculates the total amount paid by customers. This feature provides booth operators with a comprehensive overview of their business performance throughout the festival.

Efficient customer service: With electronic menus and digital ordering, booth operators can serve customers more efficiently. Orders are transmitted directly to the kitchen or preparation area, reducing the chances of errors and ensuring a smoother customer experience. Ordering through a digital menu reduces the risk of errors and ensures a smoother customer experience.

Inventory management: iTourism also offers inventory management capabilities. Booth operators can keep track of their stock levels in real-time, enabling them to restock items as needed and avoid running out of popular dishes.

2.3. Enhance the visitor experience during the Quang Nam Cultural and Culinary Festival 2023

The integration of SmartDex with iTourism goes beyond just streamlining ticketing and sales processes; it also plays a pivotal role in enhancing the overall satisfaction of visitors to the Quang Nam Culinary Culture Festival 2023.

Seamless transactions: Tourists no longer need to worry about carrying cash or dealing with loose change. With the QR code on their paper tickets or the iTourism app, they can make payments with ease. This streamlined process ensures quicker transactions, reducing waiting times at food booths and merchandise stalls.

Enhanced security: Cashless payments provide a higher level of security for both tourists and vendors. There is no risk of theft, loss, or counterfeit money. Tourists can enjoy the festival without concerns about their physical wallet's safety.

Digital record keeping: Each transaction made through SmartDex is digitally recorded, providing an organized and transparent record of expenses. Tourists can easily track their spending, making it simpler to manage their budget during the festival

The Quang Nam Culinary Culture Festival 2023 is not just a special opportunity to celebrate the unique culture, cuisine, and tourism of Quang Nam, but also a significant step forward in integrating digital technology into the organization of traditional cultural events. This aligns with the current objectives and solutions of the iTourism digital platform and SmartDex smart ticket system.
