For the corporate canteen

LunchMate is not just for sandwich bars.

As the prime objective of LunchMate is to reduce queues, it also lends itself very nicely to corporate staff canteens, because they also suffer from the same problem of large queues due to the staff purchasing their food at the same time.

With this in mind, we added a few extra features to LunchMate to make it more adaptable to the staff canteen (although a lot of these features can be useful for other restaurant types also) :

  • A Token system - A canteen can sell tokens for any amount through their own money-taking mechanisms. The user simply enters the code into the app and they are imediately credited with the appropriate amount.
  • Daily Menus - A lot of canteens have different menus for each day of the week. We have added this functionality into LunchMate.
  • Publish / Un-Publish food items - This works well with the Daily Menus feature, or when you run out of stock of an item (it simply disapears from your customers app!)
  • Outlet hidden from the casual user - For example, the Epson staff canteen at their head office in Hemel Hempstead is not visible to the standard LunchMate users. The staff at Epson are given a special code which they enter into LunchMate and the Epson branding and menus are imediately loaded into the app.
  • Office Delivery - Some companies have a service whereby a person delivers food to each persons desk (therefore reducing queues in the restaurant area). The customers simply sets a desk number in their profile, and this information gets printed out on the order slip.
  • Multiple User-types - LunchMate caters for different user types. This is particularly useful for restaurant chains, large companies with their own canteens etc.:
    • Restaurant Manager - The person in charge of a specific site who can make updates to LunchMate for that specific outlet.
    • Restaurant Staff - A staff member would have access to the ePOS, and Order display device, but not the Control panel.
    • Accounts Manager - This is the person who the system sends the statement / invoice to. This person will also have access to editing the banking details.
    • Restaurant Administrator - This person will have full control of any number of restaurants, and is able to create / modify any of the user types described above.
