Use High-Speed Technology to
Keep the Orders Coming

Mobility defines everything we do. Take orders tableside on the iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, or at a standing terminal.

Order-taking has never been easier. Quickly add items to an order with the press of a button, or remove them in an instant when an order changes. Press another button to send tickets directly to the kitchen.

Our order-quickening features include a quick-selector button, forced modifiers, and 86 countdown to tell you when an item is running low.

Any Way Customers Want to Pay

Tableside payments save crucial time and keep the tables turning. They also make customers happy at the end of their meals. Customers can pay, sign, and get a receipt in moments, rather than minutes

Customers pay any way they want.

  • Cash
  • Chip card, with our partnership with PayPal allowing full EMV compliancy
  • Credit card
  • Contactless payment, such as Apple Pay® or Samsung Pay®

Our options go beyond payment types.

  • Split even the most complicated of checks
  • Electronic or handwritten signatures
  • Select automatic gratuity suggestions
  • Emailed or printed receipts

“Lavu has been very professional and accommodating in helping us train in the field. I would also say that the Lavu front-end iPad interface is quite easy to learn and handles transfers and splitting checks quite well.”
