Mobile and online ordering is penetrating the food industry at an incredibly fast rate. The question is, with so many options, how do I choose a platform that will improve operations, rather than adding on to existing procedures? There are various factors that help to minimize the impact of a mobile implementation. For the full list, check our blog post: “Too many choices, how do I choose a food ordering platform that’s right for me?” One of the key differences, is choosing an integrated or disconnected point of sale connection; depending on what’s best for your business. To start off, let us explain, in a very high level, the difference of an integrated, versus a disconnected platform.
- orders submitted online of through an app are sent to your point of sale
- order is also printed at a kitchen printer and/or order receipt printer
- no tablets or other devices needed
- all price changes done on the POS will sync to the app/website.
- orders are sent by email to a designated orders account.
- all price/menu changes need to be updated to the website and app manually.
- an additional electronic device may be needed to receive orders.
