Guest would simply be able to scan a table side QR code or NFC tag to view the restaurant’s menu on their own mobile device.
The menu will appear on the mobile device and guest or customers can order from their device.
No headaches to go to the restaurant website. The scan code automatically appears with the menu.
There is no need to download any apps and purchase any apps.

Governments worldwide has enforced state of emergencies, stay home orders and advisories of non essential movement should be limited. While many sectors in the economy continue to operate and provide services one industry that has been severely affected is the restaurant industry. Restaurants are now closed and as a result staff has been sent home, rent continues to be incurred and contractual arrangement with suppliers continue. Restaurant owners have been coming forward and sharing their experience due to Covid 19.
