The meal booking module is designed to manage meal bookings for a future date and is independent of our live ordering, click and collect or curbside delivery modules. The meal booking system or pre-order system is user, calendar, vendor, and menu-based. This means that it is possible to book meals for various users, on various days, across various outlets, and across a selection of menus. The meal booking system accommodates the ability for parents to order on behalf of their children or departments on behalf of their staff. In most cases, users place their own orders by selecting the outlet of their choice, the date, and the available menus on that date. There may for example be a breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu available on the selected date. Items may be added to the basket across all the dates and menus and processed with a single check out function. Payment for the meal bookings is concluded at the time of ordering and the system accommodates various payment methods including digital wallets, bank cards, and digital vouchers. The collection of orders is authenticated by tapping the staff card on the collection device or scanning the auto-generated QR code in the Allxs web app on your mobile device. When the collection is authenticated, the device screen turns green and an optional collection receipt can be printed. Bookings can be processed for 30 days in advance with configurable menu cut off times as per client requests.
