I’m sure you’ve used a QR code at this point. Everyone (literally everyone) is using them for digital menus now, but why stop there? Why not use it to start a tab, or even better tie that tab to a table number so runners know where to bring food or drinks.
FocusOnline @table allows restaurants and bars to do just that. Using FocusOnline you can build out custom menus to offer guests who are dining in specific areas and allow them to start an order, not just view the menu.
Management and service staff can still access the table or tab normally if needed directly from the point of sale. Ring more items from the POS on the tab, void or comp things, even transfer items. The order itself still lives in the point of sale system while maintaining contactless ordering and payment solutions.
You can also set a time limit for the tab so it can be automatically closed out. Credit card information is provided when starting the order along with the guest’s contact information ensuring that the order is paid for.
