While FX Dine helps users process guest orders in less time, it also helps them eliminate order mistakes, reduce customer waiting time. Most importantly, with lots of time saved, users can ensure increased table turnaround time which is good for their business,” said Binu Mathews, Chief Executive Officer at IDS Next.

Additionally, if a guest wants an item that is not in the menu, the staff can instantly create a new food item and set the price in app to take and process the order.

Restaurant staff can continue to take orders from the guest when the device is not connected to internet. The app also lets the user generate non-chargeable KOT when the management decides to not to charge a guest for the meal.
