AutoReserve for Restaurants is a service that streamlines operations by managing reservations, orders, and other customer information necessary for restaurant operations. The service supports smoother operations by addressing issues caused by the shortage of restaurant staff, including reservation ledgers, POS cash registers, self-ordering systems, takeout functions, and online store opening functions.
Once installed, a restaurant introduction page with online reservation functionality is created** on the restaurant reservation service AutoReserve. Users can view information on available seats and make reservations online, and the restaurant can track reservations by day and time. Users are automatically reminded of their reservation dates, and cancellation fees are automatically collected. There is no charge for sending reservations.
POS Cash Register
The cash register function can be utilized on a tablet device and the handy function on a smartphone, reducing the burden of paper-based order receipt and management. In addition to functions such as ordering, individual accounting, and seat management, you can also use analytical functions such as daily and monthly reports and analysis by menu. By utilizing this system together with the reservation ledger, the management of customer reservations and seat availability can be linked, leading to even greater operational efficiency.
