They required a complete, ‘end to end’ POB (Point of buy) solution that featured greater functionality and also provided a high level of payroll, stock and financial control. The management had a discussion with Our dedicated team and waited for possible outcomes
From our long experiences we had no hesitation to take over the project. And we asked 6 months time to implement it. Also we have introduced a different approach for displaying menu.
Once customers enter the resourant, either they can go for self order from table or order by counter. Through self order they can take favorite seat and take tablet from the table, have a look the available menu in the restaurant, check price and order through the tab, pay by online / card service. Through online payment they get discount coupon as well, by this we promote paperless transactions. This system shows the delivery time after they paid the bill. One of our staff will deliver your favorite dish on time in your table, if you haven’t changed your seat. Rest of customers can order foods from counter.

This all procedures giving live updates .Notification of stock quantity. The software can adaptable for using any of restaurant section for buying raw material, analyzing production consumption, product recipe and auto updates of stock.

These concept includes new way of displaying menu items to the customer like veg and non –veg, appetizer and drinks etc. the same system follows in kitchen ordered items will be displayed in kitchen point with the exact table number.
Being located in the heart of busiest city, we are dealing with huge number of customer’s every day. To sustain the customers demand at peak time, we have to treat them with a fast customer service. Slower customer service is a wall between the consumer satisfaction and profit.
The system we were following is manual billing system; customers order their food and pay their bills with discount coupons at pay point. During busy period it’s very hard to manage fast billing. We know its old age procedure. At the end of the shift we have to calculate it manually.
We have noticed few changes we should make ASAP’
