Casual dining and Fast food
Pubs, bars, fast food restaurants, and drive-thru establishments can take advantage of LS Hospitality’s unique functions for this industry. Restaurants can offer meal combinations, mix and match, and special pricing for adding / deleting toppings, a la carte, and optional items. The POS system can automatically prompt staff for these options and select optimal pricing.
LS Hospitality also supports handheld devices for order taking and printing receipts in large or outdoor dining areas.
LS Hospitality helps make drive-thru operations simple and fast with easy cashier switching, tender buttons with fixed amounts, and fast order confirmation.
Take out and call center support
LS Hospitality provides advanced support for delivery and takeout operations. Orders can be placed locally or at a central call center. Address handling automatically assigns the order to a specific restaurant and / or delivery person. Order tracking makes the customer’s previous orders available, forming the basis for the current order. Multiple deliveries to the same area within a specified time window can be grouped and sent out with the same delivery driver.
Meal and recipe planning
LS Hospitality lets caterers and cafeterias plan meals daily or weekly, including ingredient list and preparation instructions. Recipes can include using alternate ingredients, listing preparation time, displaying nutritional information, and modifying prices by excluding or adding items.
LS Hospitality provides extensive reporting, from the transaction level (analyze contents of individual receipts) to the sales history level (daily summary of total sales and stock). In addition, utilizing the Role Tailored Client support in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, managers are able to assign visibility and access to only the data that management and staff require to perform their jobs, based on their roles within the organization.
