MobileBytes, the point of sale (POS) for iPad innovators, has released its next-generation software update for online ordering.
According to PointofSale.com, this latest update includes the ability to easily create specials and promotions for online orders, as well as allowing restaurateurs to automatically disable the sale of menu items that have key ingredients out of stock.
“We are always listening to restaurant owners who use MobileBytes,” says Dan Calderone, MobileBytes’ CEO. “These upgrades to our online ordering system are a direct result of what users have told us they want and need from their POS system.”
Launched in 2009, MobileBytes is fully integrated into the POS system, and setting up the tool takes only minutes for most restaurants. Customers can order from anywhere with a mobile-friendly interface styled to fit the restaurant’s brand.
Other features of the update include online menu schedule overrides, which allow restaurants to override online menu hours for specific dates. Eateries can also utilize price overrides to create special prices and rules for limited amounts of time.
In addition, customers can add a tip to their online delivery or carryout order, and confirmation emails have been upgraded to display either “pay in person” or “paid online” depending on how each customer pays for their order.
