June 2015 Software Updates


We have listened to your feedback and will release a number of major software features and updates that were recently suggested or requested by our customers. The update will be released on Monday, June 1st, and will automatically be applied to your system, so no action is required from you. The key updates for this month include improvements to the table plan, promotions, overall performance, reports and much more.


Hospitality Specific Changes

Tables shapes, sizes and improved table plan layout

We have improved the layout of the table plan to improve usability on mobile devices such as iPads. Our customers can now select different table shapes (stars & circles) when editing the table plan to help staff identify different tables quickly, without having to memorise table numbers. Our hospitality customers will benefit from this change as it’s been frequently requested in the past.

"Serve as" feature (starters served with mains or separately)

When ordering meals from categories marked as a starter course, customers can decide if they want the starters to be served together before the main meals, or together with them. This will automatically be printed on the kitchen order, so reduces time spent adding manual notes.

June 2015 Software Updates

Grouping same items on kitchen orders

When a customer orders more than one of the same food product, then all the identical products will be grouped on the Kitchen Order printed. This will make managing large orders much easier for kitchen staff.

Wet and Dry breakdown shown on EOD

When closing a till you can now see a breakdown of wet vs dry sales. This can be turned on/off in the till options menu.

All Customers

Duplicate item button in Back Office

On an existing product you can click the new Duplicate Item button to have a new product made, pre-populated with the same information. You can then change the specific options that are different for this item. This is great if you have several similar products as it saves time on re-entering data.

June 2015 Software Updates

Popup alerts per category and only show once

Popup alerts can now be assigned to a category as well as an individual product. This help to save time as the alert will automatically be added to any products that are added to a category. It is also possible to set an alert to only show once per transaction. This can be useful for one time alerts such as age restricted products.

Report to show sales per size

It is now possible to view products sales by size. This is useful for comparing clothing sizes or alternatly when viewing a breakdown of different sized drinks.

Meal Deal promotions improvement

Change to this feature will allow customers to easily set promotions like "pick any 3 items as a deal".

Till Button Renaming

Some small elements of the till interface have been updated to bring greater consistency across the platform:

Overall performance improvement (via Database Sharding)

As part of our on-going infrastructure improvements we have improved the speed for loading complex reports.
