Hi. How can we help?

Creating a table order profile

Table profiles in Order Anywhere allow customers to contactlessly place dine-in orders within your restaurant using a specific menu. After creating a new Table profile, generate QR codes to place at each physical table. By scanning a QR code with their mobile phone or tablet's camera, customers can open the ordering page for the profile to place an order.
