The Table Tracker allows you to track an order right from its first placement in the restaurant, to know how long it takes your organisation to prepare that order, to track the order right through where the runner collects the food, through delivery to exactly the right table without confusion and lastly even how long the runner took to return.

Finally its possible to collate reports with all of that important data that allows you to make real management decisions based on the real position within your company.
Example of kitchen display
Table Tracker is an LRS patented design which leads the world with this type of technology and is available nowhere else. If you can deliver food faster to the table there is less wasted food, better service to customers and increased profitability.
Table Tracker locator uses the latest technology called RFID. We apply special strips under the table so that once a customer chooses a table and places the table tracker on that table, the system knows exactly where the customer is seated and updates the system accordingly.
Its impossible to remove an order from the system unless the Table Tracker unit is returned to the kitchen and rescanned in. If the unit does not get returned then the issue is escalated to the manager for investigation and rectification so its unlikely you will lose Table Tracker units. What's more, its possible to produce an inventory report online through our reporting system directly to your PC.
Delivering food quickly and at the correct temperature is critical to the success of any restaurant. With Table Tracker, online reports are available to show these delivery times. Reports can be accessed by managers or the corporate office.

Late Order Handling
The monitor in the kitchen reports instantly to all when there is an issue with the order. Any delay and the order changes colour to yellow. If the delayed order is not resolved then it is escalated again to red on the screen. At this time the Table Tracker system will notify the manager about the late order. The manager is then able to help resolve any issues immediately.
Delivery of Service
An obvious aspect of fast casual and other restaurant environments is to prepare, collect and deliver food with the right timings thus the quality of service (QOS) is improved to the customer. A benefit of this is that customers who experience a high QOS will come back time and time again. And with improved efficiency there's no doubt that you will increase the profitability of the company.
Escalation of a Problem
Many of the LRS solutions today offer escalation of issues to the manager as a very useful aspect of one of the benefits of using LRS equipment. The manager has the opportunity to resolve issues that the customer may have from service in the restaurant and reduce the customers dissatisfaction by confirming that the order will soon be delivered.
Extensive Data Reporting
The reporting facility is accessed by using a computer browser so there's no installing software on your PC to get to that data and reports. And head office can get to the same data and reports too. The reports can show from real data exactly where improvement can be made in efficiency and performance within your restaurant. management information can also be downloaded for further analysis.

Its a simple matter to reschedule when you need staff and when you do not. Making your business utilise effective labour when you need it is absolutely key to successful bottom line profitability.
