EasyPreOrders.com is a technology solution for restaurants, conference centres and wedding venues to receive organisers groups pre-orders for food. Venues simply fill in an online form which creates a pre-order menu that is sent to organisers. Guests and the organizers enter names and course choices along with side orders and wine. From this data, venues are able to view all orders and kitchen reports and download all information to CSV to order supplies quickly and efficiently. Venues can check outstanding pre-orders and send automatic reminders to organisers. Venues are able to download instant table cards with logos that are presented on the table upon arrival. The benefits of this system include saving time, money, becoming instantly more organised and professional.
EasyPreOrders allows restaurants to reduce turnaround time for rapid business lunches as diners are able to order prior to arrival. Restaurants in particular transact up to 3,000 covers for groups at Christmas and will employ a co-ordinator to chase, record and translate orders for the kitchen and front of house. Staff costs are reduced, bulk buying of supplies is possible, revenue increased due to more efficient service and venues become more organised and appealing.
