How long did your pre-orders take over the last Christmas season? It was probably a nightmare and a full time job chasing pre-orders and deposits, sending lots of spreadsheets and word documents… and creating endless amount of paperwork. Well, this is now a thing of the past, with the favouritetable pre-ordering module, seamlessly integrated with your bookings diary.
Do away with endless emails and calls with guests when managing pre-orders for party bookings. Get rid of all the spreadsheets, word documents and costly manual labour involved in completed the pre-ordering process and let your booking system do the work for you. The lead booker receives a link with an easy to complete pre-ordering form, sends this link to the rest of the party who fill in their own order. Et voila… Job done!
For each party booking, you can set a ‘submission date’ for the order to be completed with all guests’ menu item choices. The system will automatically send a reminder email to the guest at regular intervals until the order has been completed in full.
Party menus pre-ordering can be set to include a deposit (per guest or per booking) or credit card details to secure the deposit. This is a great way to reduce instances of no-shows and late cancellations, based on the booking’s terms & condition that you define.
System provides pre-order reports that can be printed for the kitchen team. This helps your kitchen to manage orders with suppliers more efficiently, improve mise en place requirements on busy party days and as a result reduces wastage as your supplier ordering reflects the level of items that need to be purchased for large party bookings.
System provides the ability to print place cards for each guest, with the name of the guest and their menu selection. These cards can be placed on the table to provide a nice extra ‘personal touch’.
All menus can be created ahead of time and apply to specific party booking size, selected dates or date range, specific times or time range. You can therefore create the right party menus to suit different budgets and pace for your kitchen.
Because you know in advance what your party guests will eat, it makes your food ordering easier, helping to pro-actively manage your food par-levels, helping with your mise en place for each session and drastically reducing your food wastage.
Our restaurant partners and their guests find the process of managing pre-ordering very simple and intuitive. A good example where technology can provide tangible and measurable benefits, by improving the service you provide to your guest.
