Having your menu online saves time for the kitchen staff, and it saves costs related to the printing materials. Reduction in printing materials reduces their environmental impact, as well. In addition, an e menu or a mobile menu is always available to your customer regardless of place or time.
Nowadays customers are searching for restaurant menus online in order to see the offering already before going to the restaurant. Customers are also ever more interested in food related issues. They want more information about ingredients and health benefits with regards the food they are eating. Interest in local food and traceability is growing, as well. In addition, more and more people need to find out extremely detailed ingredient information as allergies caused by food have been increasing rapidly.
Sharing your menu online is quick and easy with a system
Posting a menu in, for example, your restaurant’s website is of course possible just with word processing skills, but you can handle it with notably less effort with the help of a system. JAMIX Kitchen Intelligence System is a comprehensive system for professional kitchens, where you can manage all the essential information and functions of the kitchen. Menu planning is one of the key features in the system, and it is seamlessly linked to the recipes and the ingredients that are in use in the kitchen. The same menu, that has been created in the system for managing the kitchen’s internal operations and production, can be published with a couple clicks in a customer friendly format in selected digital channels.
Publish your menu to several digital channels at one go
In addition to your own website you can easily share the e menu into digital info screens at point-of-sale, for example. The info screens can as well be tablet sized, for example near the entrance of the restaurant, or they can be large screens in lobby areas.
JAMIX Kitchen Intelligence System creates a QR code on the menu’s web address, as well. You can utilize the QR code for example in printed marketing materials. Once your customer scans the code with his/her smartphone, the web page including the menu will automatically open in the smartphone’s web browser.
In addition to the previously mentioned, you can publish your menu from the JAMIX System into the unique JAMIX MENU mobile application, which is available for free download in the app stores (at the moment available in Europe, only). In the mobile application you can browse through menus of all restaurants who have published their menu into it. The customers can make a list of their own favorite restaurants in the application, as well.
Detailed information included in the e menu
The e menu you have published from JAMIX Kitchen Intelligence System automatically includes also the sales prices for the menu items, as well as diet information, ingredients list including allergens, and nutrition facts. So, in addition to the menu items, the JAMIX online menu provides a lot of information to your customers.
These days consumers are ever more interested in the environmental effects of food. The unique CO2 Calculator in the JAMIX Kitchen Intelligence System automatically calculates the carbon footprint of food. You can choose to publish the CO2 values together with the menu for your customers, as well.
Collect customer feedback related to your menu
You can also collect customer feedback related to your menus with the JAMIX MENU application. You can create the survey and decide on which topics you want to get feedback on. Activating the customer feedback survey in the JAMIX System is again quick and easy. You just have to link the survey to the menu that will be published and the system takes care of the rest. Your survey will be shown to your customers together with the e menu, and the feedback from your customers will be automatically saved into the system, where you will have versatile reporting options related to it.
Design of the online menu according to your brand
The core purpose of the menu is communication, but most often it is a marketing tool, as well. For this reason the appearance of the menu is not meaningless. The JAMIX MENU application enables you to edit the appearance of the published menu according to your visual guidelines. You can, for example, add your own logo into the online menu or edit the color theme and fonts on the menu.
In addition, you can also add pictures that have been saved into the recipes in the JAMIX System into the online menu. This way you can choose to illustrate the menu with, for example tempting pictures of the menu items.
