It replaces the need for paper order tickets and kitchen printers, enabling restaurants to increase accuracy in their ordering process and speed up food production times. KDS allows restaurant staff to view orders quickly and easily, as well as identify which dishes are ready for assembly or cooking. The platform also allows kitchen staff to view the progress of orders, making it easier to manage a potentially complex workflow.
