How to enhance communication

Syrve’s technology enhances key functions that make a difference.

Digital order entry: Streamlining communications

Manual ordering via handwritten notes and verbal communication will be prone to errors. The modern restaurant needs a more efficient way to serve customers and boost productivity.

Syrve’s digital order entry capabilities transform communication. Hand-held solutions empower waiting staff to send orders to the kitchen in a click. This improves accuracy and accelerates the work flow. With Syrve, you can accept in-store, delivery and take-out services on the same system. This simplifies order management, allowing a unified production pipeline for optimal efficiency.

Kitchen display systems: Real-time order visibility for chefs

Kitchen Display Systems (KDS) have a key role to play in the modern restaurant, serving as an essential link between servers and chefs.

Syrve’s KDS works seamlessly with digital ordering tools, displaying accurate orders on kitchen screens and showing their readiness status in real-time. This transforms kitchen communication and ensures everyone is on-task, focusing on food preparation without distractions.

Kitchen notifications: Clear and concise communication

It’s essential that servers know when food is ready — so they can take it to customers right away.

Efficient communication between the kitchen and waiting staff is enabled by Syrve’s clear and concise kitchen notifications. Real-time alerts tell waiting staff when orders are being prepared and when they’re ready, guaranteeing swift service and maintaining food quality by preventing orders from lingering in the kitchen.
