The Kitchen Display System plugin when subscribed to and activated allows you to setup and use the Kitchen Display System with Tagrain. This integration helps you to notify the cooking staff as to what needs to be prepared and in what quantity. This way the cooking staff is able to glance through the entire table order along with any special requests made with the order and accordingly distribute the task among themselves. This not only avoids confusion and reduces the chances of any error in preparing the order but also ensures that all dishes in an order are ready on time. This also improves kitchen efficiency by reducing food wastage.
You must subscribe to and activate the Kitchen Display plugin to be able to set up and use the Kitchen Display System with Tagrain.
Note: The Tagrain KDS application is available only for Android powered tablets and can be freely downloaded from the Google Play Store.
