The most powerful QR menu technology ever made
Say hello to the future of restaurants
Table Needs seamlessly integrates with your POS system to offer contactless dining to your guests from the convenience of their own phone
Give servers superpowers
With Table Needs, your servers get orders, service requests, and guest information at their fingertips. No more guessing, and no more mistakes. Get notified when a guest needs something, spend less time running back and forth, and delight guests like never before. Satisfied guests tip higher, fulfilling your waitstaff and decreasing turnover. It’s a win, win, win.
Higher guest spend
Guests spend up to 30% more using Table Needs. Why? They no longer have to wait for a server to order a dessert, re-order an appetizer, or refill a beverage. Ordering and re-ordering right from their phone removes barriers and gives the convenience guests’ need to spend more. In addition, guests can see images of your delicious food on the QR menu, enticing them to order more.
Safest way to dine
Contact free dining allows your guests to enjoy their meal without worry. No physical menus or shared payment surfaces. Guests can choose how much contact they want with your staff, minimizing unnecessary touch points. Mobile dining makes your guests feel safer, and gives them a convenient restaurant experience.

Seamless POS integration
Table Needs connects directly with your POS enabling orders to be printed and displayed as usual, even if you have multiple printers in different locations. Inventory and reports are synced and updated daily without any extra steps. This lets you operate with your current backend processes uninterrupted.
Lower labor and turnover costs
Because guests send orders and service requests digitally, in-between wait times are eliminated, and servers are more efficient and able to handle more tables. This means you can operate with less wait staff without diminishing service quality. Additionally, servers receive greater satisfaction using Table Needs, which decreases turnover.
Guests send orders in that go right to the staff and the kitchen, reducing miscommunication. Also, because there is a digital footprint of each service request, you can be assured that every guest need gets met. This makes for fewer comps and happier guests.
Realtime menu updates
Quickly mark an item as sold out, avoiding guest disappointment. Add new menu items, adjust pricing as often as you need to. Giving you more control and flexibility over your offerings to guests.
Multiple venues nearby? Want the ability for guests to order from next door? Table Needs offers the first-of-its-kind joint menus enabling your guests to order drinks from your bar, and food from the venue next door. Creating a win-win for you and your guests.
