Version 5.17

Chits and Chit List

A new development has been built into the CHIT system within Menumate that allows more flexibiity in how the chit can work and enables sites to improve the flow of order entry, reduce key strokes and speed up the point of sale transactions. 

Features Include

  • new CHIT LIST that allows bistro or quick service restuarants to build a list of options (like Table Numbers or Table Names) rather than using the table system. These are incorporated into the new Hold and Send function.
  • a DEFAULT MENU option has been added to each Chit so that a Chit (or sales type) can have a default menu. This can be used for Dine In and Take Away sales when the Take Away Chit or Sale Type will automatically display the Takeaway menu.
  • a DONT USE HOLD & SEND option has been included for each Chit so that for some Chits types will not use the Hold and Send function.
  • a PROMPT FOR CHIT on every order has been added to Misc Settings so that the pos user does not need to select the Chit type manually. This improved the speed of the sales process by removing key strokes and operator erros.
