Can Ordering Stack work without internet connection?

No, it can’t. You need to have online connection for all components including KIOSK. In case of problem with main internet connection we recommend to have backup connection (event 3G/LTE is sufficient).
We believe that internet connection In today’s world is like electricity, and you can’t go omnichannel without network…

How Ordering Stack differs from other online ordering solutions?

Our goal was to create solution for enterprise scale restaurant chains. We used patterns that are used in such big enterprises. It includes:

  • complex product model supporting configuration (removing, replacing and adding extra ingredients, condiments etc.), multi-level meals, half and half pizza, meal enlargement and so on
  • support for all possible channels of ordering and ways of delivering kiosk application
  • mechanisms for blocking items that restaurant run out of schedules of working time for restaurants
  • advanced discounting mechanisms
  • loyalty integration readiness
  • easy integration with existing POS systems
  • easy customization end extensibility by using webhooks

Ordering Stack is cloud native, microservice based, ultra scalable and customizable modern piece of software based on powerful technology stack (Java, Spring framework, Node.js, Apache Kafka, Kafka Streams, Docker, Kubernetes, React.js).

It works as multitenant SaaS system, can be also installed as on premise solution.

How to customize customer facing applications (ordering app, kiosk app etc.)?

We understand that restaurant chains have their own requirements for customer facing applications. Therefore we provide a solution for that.
There are several options with different level of effort needed:

  • easy customization of existing frontend application with tenant properties, allows CSS customization including logo, colors, background, fonts etc. – this is fastest and effortless way
  • your own version of existing applications (we provide source codes) – middle ground solution
  • create a complete new application using Ordering Stack API – gives you full freedom but with more effort
