What Is Different with LS Central 17?
LS Central 17 has released a swathe of upgrades designed to give users extra control. Continue reading to find out more about them.
When you have lots of items on your shelves, you never know what will sell and what will struggle. Therefore, maintaining a perfect level of stock is tough since you might buy too much or too little. LS Forecast transforms this by calculating the estimated sales of item groups, allowing you to maintain stock levels in a cost-effective manner.
Payment Tokens & Pre-Authorisation
Payment tokens are becoming more popular, especially with the rise of cryptocurrencies. Through the EFT process, LS Central 17 will store tokens and use them for relevant transactions.
Enhanced Tape Chart
The Tape Chart is already an in-demand feature that hospitality businesses love. In LS 17, it is about to get better because you can view unallocated reservations, as well as allocated ones. For the likes of hotels and restaurants, this is essential as it gives them the simplicity to react to phone-ins and walk-ins and maximise earnings.
What About LS Central 17.1?
The 17.1 upgrade is hot on the heels of LS Central 17 and is now readily available to purchase. Here’s what you get if you invest in this LS Retail solution.
Discounts are significant parts of hospitality as you need to stand out from the crowd with offers and price cuts. The introduction of 17.1 gives you added flexibility to offer a line discount, rather than on a whole meal. As a result, customers will be happier and impressed with your attention to detail.
Kitchen Display System
Kitchens need to run efficiently, which is why timings are essential. With LS Central 17.1, you get access to the KDS dashboard that monitors the number of customer orders. Not only does this make you aware of the demand, but the new timer feature highlights how long orders are waiting before being fulfilled.
