Restaurant management apps: why is it effective?
A mobile application for a cafe or restaurant allows an entrepreneur to optimize the work of the staff, reduce advertising costs, increase the average check and establish communication with the client. For example, you can inform customers about promotions and offer them coupon codes, as well as provide a convenient mobile application for ordering food.
The visitor can save time by ordering a table or meal, get an invoice and pay it directly from a mobile device, without the participation of a waiter. This allows to increase the number of loyal customers and as a consequence, increase the profit of the institution.

- display of the building on the map — online and / or offline;
- demonstration of the menu — names of dishes, weight, prices, ingredients;
- photo gallery — interior, exterior;
- access to the page of shares, bonuses, contests, updates;
- reservation of the table with the indication of the date, additional wishes (window seat, presence of a high chairs, etc.);
- forming a unique order number, transferring it to the kitchen;
- possibility of payment through the application — bank cards, accounts, virtual wallets;
- sending an electronic check to the customer's mail;
- accurate calculation of profits, business losses for a certain period.
- Overview of all establishments in a particular city or country;
- ability to compare restaurants, their average ratings, checks;
