If you are running a restaurant and wish to make the operations part easier, faster, and more profitable, then you should definitely look into implementing a restaurant order management solution. Below, we highlight four ways how such a software will help your venture increase chances of success.
Quick Order Processing
The biggest benefit of a restaurant order management system like E-Dinette is that you can accept and process orders fairly quickly. From the customer’s perspective, they can just choose the items they like and place the order right on the tablet, without having to wait for anyone to come over to the table. From the perspective of the restaurant, the waiter does not have to go around and waste time waiting for customers to give their orders. As such, you will able to utilize existing workers more efficiently.
Suggest Foods And Drinks
When people order using a traditional paper menu, they will go through the items on offer and take a long time to decide on what they want to order. This mostly happens since they don’t have a good idea as to which food will suit their taste. But with a table ordering system, when a customer chooses a food item, the software will show a list of complementary foods and drinks that go with it. You can also show the ratings by other customers. This will make the ordering process easier, increasing the chance that customers will not only enjoy the dining experience at your restaurant but will return for repeat business.
With the software, taking a custom order becomes much easier. The customer can go through the foods available, make adjustments to it as per the ‘extras’ on offer and place the orders quickly. And since you can update the ‘extras’ available in real time, there wouldn’t be a situation where the customer places a custom order and the waiter has to inform them that it is not available. Such incidents do not happen with a restaurant order system.
Easy Group Sales
Another unique benefit of the software is that the customer can instantly be shown offers based on the orders they have placed. For example, suppose a customer chooses a food item worth $15. Based on this choice, the software can instantly show existing offers for matching items, that the customer wouldn’t have known otherwise. This information is rather difficult for the waiting staff to retain in memory and has tremendous potential to increase sales.
