Ai-Menu is offering restaurants, cafés & other hospitality venues a cost-effective online ordering solution to assist their efforts to stay viable during the COVID-19 situation.
What equipment do I need in my venue to get this system to work for me?
Ai-Menu provides a FREE rental tablet (requires an internet connection) that will connect with the online store and display incoming orders. These can then be entered into the venue’s POS system as required.
Please note: This tablet is provided on a rental basis only and will need to be returned at the conclusion of the Ai-Online arrangement (see Terms and Conditions on the Ai-Online Ordering Registration form).
What information does Ai-Menu require for my online ordering to become operational?
1. A signed Ai-Online Ordering Registration form
2. A copy of the venue’s menu in electronic spreadsheet format, including descriptions and ALL available options
3. Photo images (JPG or PNG formats) of the menu items, labelled according to the menu item they belong to
4. The client or their web developer will need to add the “Order Now” button to their website
Can the online store integrate with my existing POS system?
