Built for Quick Service Restaurants

Put the 'quick' back in 'quick service' with time-saving tools and seamless integrations.

Run your restaurant like a well-oiled machine

When your point of sale, kitchen display system, and digital signage are all in sync, your restaurant will run smoothly and efficiently. Use multiple ordering modes to ensure guests are served fast – whether they’re curbside, at the drive-thru, or in the restaurant.

Make ordering and payment easy for guests

Push out instant menu updates and give your customers multiple ways to order, ensuring they have the best experience and enjoy the most convenience from your restaurant. Our ordering system shows ingredients for menu items and suggests personalized upsells based on the items they’ve selected.

Make training easy for staff

With our intuitive ordering system, staff always know what ingredients go into each menu item, which means less training and lower wait times for guests.
