Kitchen Display integrates with your Restaurant POS account in order to digitally display order details to your kitchen staff. The kitchen display system follows the kitchen routing configured in the back office so that kitchen staff has full details of which items to prepare.
Here is what you need to run Kitchen Display
Restaurant point of sale subscription.
A subscription to the Kitchen Display app.
The Kitchen Display app downloaded from the Apple App Store.
Additional iPads to run the Kitchen Display app.
A connected in-store server.
A stable, password protected wireless network with Internet access.
Access to the Back Office (for kitchen device set up).
Log into the Back Office and click the settings wheel in the top right of the page.
Click Kitchen Routing.
Select the desired kitchen group and click Add Device.
Do the following:
Give the device a distinct name for the station it will be located (such as Grill).
Enter your Level 1 and Level 2 threshold times. Orders that pass the threshold levels will change color on the kitchen display so that your staff can easily monitor which orders are oldest or newest.
Click Save Changes
Think about where you are going to locate the devices and ensure they have access to a power outlet.
Ensure you have completed the proper setup steps for your Restaurant POS system including the in-store server and the setup of your kitchen stations in the Back Office.
Connect the iPads used for your kitchen devices to your secure wireless network. Download the Kitchen Display app from the Apple App Store.
You will need your Apple username and password to complete this step.
Open the app, and begin the setup steps by pressing Next.
