Improved Kitchen Video System

Today’s consumer wants fresh, quality food, fast! Your brand’s reputation and customer loyalty depend on this. Maximise guest satisfaction while reducing ticket times and costly errors. With steadily rising food costs, efficiency in your kitchen has never been more important. CES Software Kitchen Video System can:

  • Maximise guest satisfaction with quality and consistent food delivery
  • Eliminate the need for kitchen printers and endless amounts of paper rolls
  • Gain real-time visibility into kitchen operations for actionable insight on how to streamline your kitchen operations

The kitchen video is built into the EPOS system for a seamless integration into your operations. As a result, the order can be sent directly to the kitchen for optimal efficiency, or users can place the items into a queue for customers to pick up at a later time.

Go green and monitor the effectiveness of your kitchen with the CES Software kitchen video system.

  • Speed of Service Reporting
  • Order & Item Level Modes
  • Order Completion Notifications

Items ordered are displayed on the video monitor and can be grouped by order or simply listed in line item mode. The kitchen video system gives the operator visibility into kitchen efficiency and speed of service reporting. Know exactly how long items take for preparation and how long delivering an entire order takes to the guest; this helps identify bottlenecks or staffing issues and can significantly improve how your kitchen operates.

CES Touch Age Restriction Feature

It is against the law to sell alcohol to someone under 18 anywhere, leading to a maximum fine of £20,000 for bar staff/managers or premises may eventually be shut down. Therefore, it is important for alcohol retailers and hospitality providers to have systems in place to aid staff in Challenge 25 procedures.

The CES Touch Age Restriction feature prompts employees in these situations to ask customers for acceptable ID (a card bearing the PASS hologram, a photographic driving license or a passport).

EPoS Software - Customer Assistant Age Restriction Question Screen

In addition to this, the module also includes:

  • 2nd Screen Sales Viewer – improved to auto detect the 2nd screen, so there is no more troublesome setup
  • Detailed Local authority Age EPoS Software - Customer Assistant Age Restriction I.D Accept - Refuse ScreenRestriction requirements with reports
