3. I dont understand what you mean by Order Screens?
Orders are visually displayed on an Order Screen. In a Restaurant you can have 1 Order Screen or many screens. You may have an Order Screen at front of house to act as a Point Of Sale / Till / Register and you may have an Order Screen in the Kitchen, you may also have an Order Screen at the drinks Bar. All of these screens will show the same Orders in Real Time. So any new Orders added by waiters will be visible to all areas of your business.
4. Can we create custom categories / menus?
Yes you can create whatever categories you like, and for each category you can add options. For example if you created the category Pizzas then you can add options to this catgory such as the toppings, Tuna, Salami and so on...
5. Can we send messages to the kitchen?
On every Order you can add custom options to any of the lines in that order. This allows waiters to send any instructions to the Kitchen / Drinks Bar. They can send an instruction for a specific item or for the whole order.
6. Can we see Reports such as Orders, Bestsellers and Items Sold?
There are a variety of managment reports including bestsellers, number of items sold, total order values and many more.
7. What about taking payments from my customers?
Taking Payments from your customers varies from business to business. For this reason Orderserv does not process any card payments. However you can finish an Order and see the Total value of the Order and each of its items. This enables you to use it as a sales register/till. Most of our customers have their own Card processing facilities.

Equipment & Technology

1. What equipment will I need?
All you need is a standard internet ready PC. You do not have to buy any expensive EPOS hardware or additional software. For each area you want an Order Screen such as a Kitchen you would need a PC. So if you wanted to display 3 Order Screens in your business then you would need 3 PC's. If your PC can surf the Net it will work with Orderserv. We recommed you use Firefox or Chrome as your Internet Browser.

Some businesses prefer a receipt printer and cash draw so we have arranged a special package through one of our partners, it includes a USB Thermal roll printer and cash draw click here to see printer package
2. Do I need to buy a cash register / till?
Simple answer is no, as OrderServ will display your customers bills. OrderServ is not linked with a Cash Draw so you would need to make arrangements to hold your cash somewhere. (waiter money bag or a seperate cash draw)
3. How can I print Bills for my customers?
You can attach almost all printers to Orderserv to print your Bills, including thermal receipt printers(minimum media width 80mm), some settings need to be adjusted on your side but most printer are supported.

If you require a receipt printer and cash draw we have arranged a special package through one of our partners, it includes a USB Thermal roll printer and cash draw click here to see printer package
4. My Service is slow?
OrderServ has been designed with speed and reliablity in mind, and is sitting on a dedicated Cloud environment which can be scaled depending on demand and usage.
