CirQ POS - The Best Way to generate Kitchen Order Tickets (KOTs)
Why use KOT
Having KOT is an effortless way to tell kitchen what to cook
without being bothered about table number, items, and order sequence.
CirQ POS KOTs
CirQ not only gives the option to print but also send digital KOTs
to kitchen. This is less messy and environment friendly.
KOTs Based on Business Workflow Design
Suppose you have 3 kitchens where you want orders to reach and printed.
Based on this you create three departments. You may create additional departments for observing purposes or as the case arise.
you created four departments, D1, D2, D3, & D4. Each department can
have categories, say based on categories of food.
Each category has items.
Now, a department gets items from a particular kitchen. Suppose K1 (General) can process categories in D1 and D4;
K2 prepares for D2; and Kitchen K3 prepares for D3. These are the things that is to be decided first.
is obvious that when an item in a particular department is ordered the
KOT should be sent to the corresponding kitchen. This is what CirQ POS
For example, let D1 have item A;
let D2 have item B;
let D3 have item C;
let D4 have item E.
When a customer orders B and C, CirQ will auto send KOT for B to K2 and KOT for C to K3 with details of ordered table.
When a customer orders A, C, and E CirQ will auto send KOT for A and E
to K1 (because A=>D1=>K1 and E=>D4=>K1). And CirQ will send
a KOT for C to K3 with details of ordered table.
You can keep updating items, adding or deleting from a category, orders will go to the correct area.
Also, you can create departments, categories and KOTs. You can edit relationships between a KOT and departments any time.
Step by Step Process in the POS
