Orderpad improves efficiency and
increases customer satisfaction

The mobile application replaces the traditional notepad and instead allows the waiter / waitress to enter new or add to existing orders on tables within the Datasym POS solution. Text can be added to personalise selections as well as the use of pop ups to cover cooking instructions or add-ons e.g. well done, rare, or chips, jacket potato. Fractional counts are also supported meaning half pints, large portions etc. are created automatically as an additional line on the Orderpad. The order can be reviewed and added to until correct and then submitted to the system via a send button.

The live tables are then updated and kitchen prints produced via the WiFi connectivity linking the Orderpad into the Datasym POS system as if it was another standard POS terminal.

Orderpad from Datasym can easily be added to existing DPOS SQL systems with minimal data maintenance required and is able to finalise transactions to multiple methods of payments.
