The software solution to run your restaurant kitchen more efficiently

Simplify communication and streamline kitchen operations

Kitchen management technology

Fewer mistakes, clearer tasks, faster production

A kitchen management system helps organize daily tasks in your kitchen, supports clearer workflows, connects front and back of house, and ultimately improves efficiency.

With LS Central, you can help your kitchen staff produce consistent dishes that are prepared according to guest specifications and served at the right time. No more lost tickets: the kitchen display systems ensure that all orders are displayed at the right kitchen station, simplifying preparation and distributing tasks efficiently.


Organized orders on the KDS

Have a well-organized kitchen with clear workflows by replacing printers and paper tickets with digital order viewing screens. The LS Central kitchen display system (KDS) software:

  • Routes orders from the Point of Sale to the correct food preparation stations.
  • Organizes items, so dishes that should go out at the same time are prepared in the right order.
  • Alerts kitchen staff if orders have been in the queue too long.
  • Can be customized to support your kitchen’s workflows.
  • Is interactive, so the kitchen staff can bump dishes to different stations, recall them, and mark when they are ready.
  • Clearly displays special requests, comments, allergies and extras.

Manage recipes and menus

Recipes list what ingredients you need to produce each of the dishes in your menu. They also include ingredient quantities and cooking and prep times for each component. With LS Central, you can record and store your recipes in a centralized place, and:

  • Produce consistent dishes that follow a standard recipe.
  • Use recipes to create daily and weekly menu plans.
  • Keep your use of ingredients under control.
  • Reduce waste in the kitchen.

Connect front of house and kitchen

The POS in the servers’ hands and the KDS in your kitchen are connected, making communication between front of house and kitchen immediate and clear.

  • Deliver the dishes according to the guests’ pace with course firing.
  • Special requests, allergies and changes can be clearly labelled – no need to walk into the kitchen and talk to the chef.
  • Servers can check if an order is ready at the POS.

All the software tools to run
an organized kitchen

Handle over the counter, drive thru, takeaway, delivery

To-go orders are clearly labelled on KDS alongside their expected time of delivery, so your chefs can pack them appropriately.

Eliminate interruptions in your kitchen

No need for servers to go into the kitchen to make a change to an order, or check if it’s ready: the POS and KDS are connected.


Kitchen printers or screens

Don’t want to use screens? The POS can send orders to kitchen printers - you can even set up a separate printer per station.

Configurable to your needs

Configure layouts, styles, colors and attributes of the station displays, and decide to which station items should be routed.

Prior to switching to LS Retail software, we used separate systems for POS and warehouse management, accounting, ordering and delivery. This didn’t give us the overview we wanted. We needed to optimize our business operations and daily activities in the chain restaurants and consolidate them.
