Offering a wide range of customizable features and flexibility that puts owner-operators in the driver’s seat, Table Needs takes a decidedly human approach to digital-first technology.
Designed to give you control over the employee, customer and managerial experience, our restaurant technology tools simplify and streamline operations, freeing up — and maximizing the potential of — servers, improving the customer experience and paving the way for revenue growth and retention at a time restaurateurs need it most.
Here are some of the ways Table Needs gives you a leg up on the competition — and beats the other POS systems out there.
As former servers and restaurant industry vets, we’re a crew with decades of firsthand restaurant experience. We intimately know the challenges restaurants — and their staff members — face. At a time when hiring poses unprecedented challenges, Table Needs helps restaurants do more with less, all without compromising the customer experience.
Whether it’s simply enlisting our digital menu or using it as a springboard for online ordering and payments, it’s all about making things easier on you and more pleasant and effortless for servers and diners alike. After all, employee satisfaction (read: better tips and happier customers) paves the way for repeat business and increased revenue.
Game-Changing Digital Menu Experience
At the core of our product is a singular, dynamic menu experience. We help you build and engineer your menu to best showcase your cuisine while ensuring you can easily update your offerings and automate item availability.
At a time when the restaurant industry is plagued by supply chain issues, designing an alluring and reliable menu that accounts for today’s unpredictability is priceless.
Unable to get a key ingredient? Updating your menu — a single, consolidated menu — is a cinch. Table Needs lets you effortlessly update menus when creating or modifying dishes on the fly.
Running low on a dish? With pre-set features, you don’t have to do a thing once your menu and availability parameters are in place — when it runs out, the dish will automatically be removed in real-time. That means no more customers showing up to a swapped-out dish they’re not satisfied with. And no added food waste or need to remake orders on account of that fact.
Have to alter pricing due to an unexpected rise in ingredient prices? Making that update is easy, too. With Table Needs, customers see what they can get, free of false expectations, and you’ll have the ability to consistently deliver on their requests.
Flexible Entry Points
Sometimes you want the whole enchilada, other times just a taste. Our restaurant technology tools put you in control of the decision-making. When you enlist Table Needs, you can start small — say, with a digital menu that saves on printing costs. Then, you can build the experience from there, later including take-out, pick-up or delivery; utilizing our reporting capabilities; benefitting from online ordering and/or order and pay; taking advantage of menu engineering; and opting to utilize its full POS.
Letting you turn on and off features that suit you, our service is tailored to your individual needs.
