Tableside ordering system FAQ

What is tableside ordering or tableside service?

Tableside ordering is a restaurant service that enables customers to view menus, place orders, and make payments using their own devices. This can be done either through a tabletop kiosk or with the assistance of a team member using a tablet. 

What are some key features to consider when choosing the best tablet ordering system for restaurants?

  • Instant tableside order entry: Choose a tablet ordering system that allows servers to take orders directly at the table, ensuring quick and efficient service. 
  • Seamless POS integration and order updates: Look for a tablet ordering system that seamlessly integrates with your point of sale (POS) system, enabling real-time order updates and minimizing manual entry errors. 
  • Up to date menu systems: Ensure that the tablet ordering system provides an up-to-date menu, reflecting any changes made on the POS system. This ensures accuracy and consistency in menu offerings. 
  • Easy contactless payment processing: Opt for a tablet ordering system that supports fast and convenient contactless payment options, such as Apple Pay or Google Pay, enhancing the payment experience for both staff and customers. 
  • 24/7 customer support: Whether it’s technical support, assistance with menu updates, or troubleshooting, a system like CAKE with reliable 24/7 customer support can provide peace of mind and help keep your restaurant operations running smoothly. 

How can I add integrated tablets to my restaurant for mobile ordering?

You can easily add integrated tablets to your restaurant for mobile ordering by utilizing an iPad-based POS system. With this system, your servers can use handheld tablets to take orders directly at the table, providing a seamless and personalized dining experience. Alternatively, you can also place self-service kiosks on tabletops, allowing customers to independently place their orders. Both options enhance efficiency and improve customer satisfaction, giving your restaurant a modern and convenient mobile ordering solution. 

What are some of the different advantages of tableside ordering for restaurant types?

Restaurant table ordering systems can be used in a variety of ways to cater to different types of restaurants. For full-service restaurants (FSR), servers equipped with handheld tablets can take orders directly at the table, providing a seamless and personalized dining experience. In quick-service restaurants (QSR), table ordering can be implemented in the line, allowing customers to place their orders conveniently. These different approaches enhance efficiency, improve customer satisfaction, and streamline restaurant operations across various restaurant types. 

Do restaurant handheld ordering tablets help with reducing waiting time and line busting?

Restaurant handheld ordering tablets significantly reduce waiting time and line busting order entry by enabling staff to take orders directly at the table, or with a customer in line, curbside, or drive-thru, bypassing traditional lines. This streamlined process not only enhances the restaurant experience by providing quicker service but also minimizes congestion at the point of sale. Orders are efficiently managed and sent directly to the kitchen or bar, reducing bottlenecks and improving overall speed of service. In quick-service restaurants, tablets used by staff can expedite the ordering and checkout process, further decreasing wait times during peak hours. Overall, restaurant handheld ordering tablets are a valuable tool for optimizing operations and enhancing the customer experience.
