Ambur 2.0 - Coming Features
Thursday January 03, 2013
The Ambur Team has been working hard over the past 6 months to build and rebuild every individual feature from the ground up in order to launch Ambur 2.0 iPad POS.
Since our entry into the App Store in April 2011, we've spoken with hundreds of existing and potential clients, with local and international restaurateurs, and with many of our partners to find out what it is you need in order to run your business efficiently. With a faster order screen, multiple table layouts, individual seat numbers, line item discounts, single item repeats, picture based speed buttons, and over a hundred new features, Ambur 2.0 is the culmination of both our efforts and your much appreciated feedback.
Here are just a few:
Soon you'll have the ability to alter table sizes, add and remove new layouts for your bar and patio, all from the original layout screen rather than moving into Settings.
Now as you can see below, processing orders will be much faster and easier to use, with a more traditional grid format, instead of our original list style:
In the top right you have a quick "sign out" button, while the choices in the bottom left give you access to all the former "Management" features right from the order screen.
But that doesn't mean you won't still be able to use the list format. All you have to do is tap the list or grid buttons next to the search bar to make the switch.
Here you can also see how easy it will be to "print for customer," "print for kitchen," email your guest's receipt, and split and merge your tickets.
Ambur 2.0 will give you the option to flip the iPad vertically, so you can see many more of your speed buttons. This feature will be especially useful if your servers begin using the iPad mini to take orders right at the table side.
More importantly, you'll now be able to repeat menu items, assign a guest number to each individual item, add an item specific discount, and write a custom note for allergies or whatever else your kitchen staff members need to know.
That's it for now, I hope you're as excited as we are about the final launch of Ambur 2.0 - It's going to be awesome.
