Lavu Inc., makers of Lavu restaurant point of sale for iPad, has released a new product designed specifically to improve workflow and customer experience at pizzerias. According to a news release, the new Pizza Creator module features a graphical interface that makes customization of pizza orders more efficient.
"Along with the Lavu Customer Management module and new delivery features, the Lavu Pizza Creator is able to fulfill the specific requirements of pizza shops," said Alex Gibbs, product development manager with Lavu Inc.
Lavu Pizza Creator includes a customizable graphical display of a pizza, complete with split topping capabilities. Toppings can be selected for the entire pizza, left half, or right half. The order screen displays the image of the pizza with toppings as they are added.
Lavu iPad POS also allows managers to set other customizable modifiers, such as pizza size, crust type and sauce type.
The Lavu Customer Management module allows the ability to create new customer profiles or to access existing customer profiles by searching for basic information, such as name or phone number. Employees can access the customer's address for delivery, and can see order history to remind loyal patrons of their previous orders. The database is stored on Lavu's cloud servers, allowing management access to this data across multiple locations.
For consistency, every data field has the option to be set as a required entry. These fields can be set to print on receipts, which benefits locations with delivery or carry-out options. Other optional fields include birthday, company, and a field that asks the customer how they heard about the business.
