Achieve centralized control of your chain

Manage your restaurant operation, including POS terminals, kitchen system, staff and inventory from headquarters. Remove duplicate work: change the ingredients in a dish, modify prices, add a new offer or special just once, from back office. The system transmits the changes across the whole organization instantly and automatically.

  • Set up menus, recipes, and meal deals.
  • Update prices, and set different prices and taxes depending on delivery mode, with the possibility to add service charges.
  • Create new promotions, discounts, specials and offers.
  • Change the POS interface: modify colors and buttons, and update the look in a tap.
  • Update prices or offers across your enterprise, or in only some of your locations or brands.

Perfect recipe and menu management

Recipes clarify ingredients and quantities in each dish, ensuring a consistent dining experience every time, in all your restaurants.

  • Store recipes centrally, and edit them for seasonality, or cost effectiveness.
  • Add modifiers, and let customers personalize their order with their favorite extras and sides.
  • Track costs of your dishes, determine appropriate pricing and create a menu that drives returns.
  • Edit recipes to optimize ingredient usage and minimize waste.
  • Comply to food labeling requirements. Have always up-to-date ingredient and allergen information for each dish, on all touchpoints.
  • Need to sub an ingredient that’s out of season? Update the recipe centrally: the change will be sent to all your restaurants’ kitchens, and to all touchpoints, so guests can track what’s in their order.
