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.

Ability to create a combo without using forced modifiers.
Allows for pricing, for individual items or as a whole combo.

Ability to enable the dual cash drawer feature on any POS terminal.
Allows cash drawers to be managed more effectively.
Server is automatically connected to the correct drawer when they pin-in.
