Keep Tables Turning and Lines Flowing

First impressions count, particularly in the restaurant business. When customers walk into your eating establishment, they quickly assess the décor, the food, the staff, and more. From these first impressions, they may determine whether to stay or not. You need to hook them from the get-go, and Lavu can help.

Combo Builder

Lavu’s Combo Builder allows restaurant owners to create combinations or “combos” from existing menu items; for example, one combo might be a soda, burger, and fries all grouped together as one combo. Grouping items is easier for servers and more efficient for kitchen operations.

  • Allows individual components of the combo to go to different printers: drinks to the bar, entrees to the kitchen, etc.
  • Ability to create a combo without using forced modifiers
  • When combined with Hold & Fire, each component can be fired individually or at the same time
  • Allows for flexible pricing, for individual items or as a whole combo

Dual Cash Drawer

The dual cash drawer helps manage security at the point of sale terminal. Two cash drawers are attached to a single, shared POS terminal and printer, but each drawer is assigned to a single server. This system allows managers to hold employees accountable for the integrity of the till.

  • Ability to enable the dual cash drawer feature on any POS terminal
  • Allows cash drawer to be managed more effectively
  • Server is automatically connected to the correct drawer when they pin-in
  • All register functions respect the cash drawer assignment
  • Manager may override any drawer using their manager PIN
  • Updated reporting reflects cash drawer and terminal usage, such as till reports and activity logs

Simplify Vendor Relations and PO Processing
Easily manage your vendor relations by listing relationship details such as items typically ordered. Get alerts for low stock levels, generate purchase orders for suppliers, and make price adjustments. Choose to use POs to automatically update inventory levels, or update manually.
Connect Your Menu and Inventory
Keep track of what you have in stock by linking your inventory items with your menu items—including modifiers. Lavu’s inventory system keeps tally in realtime and even notifies servers when an item is about to be 86ed.
Transfer Items to Meet Location Needs
If your establishment has multiple locations, you can transfer goods from one location to another via the inventory system. Never run low on menu items, no matter how much is going on.
Warehouse and Commissary Options
If your establishment has a warehouse or ordering hub, Lavu’s inventory system will integrate with it seamlessly. Order items to be delivered to the warehouse and then distributed to locations. Or use Lavu with your commissary, where ingredients are distributed and then made into menu items.
Know What Your Guests Like
Inventory control helps you to understand what’s selling (and what’s not). And understanding what your customers like leads to greater efficiency, less waste— and greater profit margins.
Improve Profit Margins
Poor inventory management translates into lower profits. The key to a successful restaurant or bar is to have exactly what’s needed—no more and no less. Cut back on wasteful spending, and identify where you can make more money instead.
