Here at Appfront we believe that the more a customer is involved in the preparation process of their order, the more likely he or she will be satisfied with the overall ordering experience.
This feature helps restaurants streamline the order process by letting customers know when their food (or drink) is ready for pickup (or curbside pickup), saving both parties precious time while reducing frustration.
Once an employee marks the order as "ready" in their kitchen display terminal - the customer will get a notification in real-time notifying them the order is ready! The notification will be sent as a text message and a push notification (for customers who have signed up on their native apps).
We are launching this feature with selected Kitchen Display Systems, but if you don't use KDS or would like to control the notifications from Appfront’s back office, it will also work from standard POS menus.
This pickup notification is in addition to our 3rd party Doordash & Postmates delivery tracking functionality.
We will continue to add more functionalities to perfect customer order visibility - so stay tuned for more! To read up on how to enable this feature and more relevant information, please read Appfront’s Knowledge Base.

When it comes to marketing in the modern business world, having a solid understanding of your customer base is critical. By making the most of consumer data, restaurant owners can gain valuable insights into buyer behavior and drive revenue growth.
Analyzing a restaurant's digital presence is vital to standing out from the competition. The local elements that can significantly impact customer experience, loyalty, sentiment, word of mouth, and brand awareness are often overlooked.
It has become common for restaurants to personalize their loyalty rewards to cater to individual customers, rather than following a generic approach that applies to all.
