Please tell us how you use the ordering functions on Lusso.
At our restaurant, the server receives the order from the customer, then inputs the order into a touch-screen terminal.
For orders that consist of appetizer, main dish, and dessert, we are able to serve the dishes at the best timing by monitoring the customer's dining speed and experience.
We are also able to accommodate for modifications such as allergy notices and additional portions.
With Lusso, the servers send orders to the kitchen at their own timing, as well as make detailed notes with special requests from customers, which helps us provide higher quality and personalized service to our guests.
How would you describe the user experience to register menu items?
There is a very wide range of customization available.
We register items while keeping in mind how our staff can operate with minimal mistakes.
With Lusso, we are able to customize the button sizes, colors, and arrangement freely, which helps us achieve the ideal setup.
Our restaurant also has many different combo menus, and the system allows each menu to have its unique choice settings.
What are your thoughts regarding the support you receive?
The Mediamix staff was very attentive and helpful during the system installation.
The support after installation has been phenominal; the Support Center is always available whenever we have any technical issues, and it is reassuring that we could immediate speak to a Support Representative.
Were there any functions that you found especially useful?
The 'Set Sold Out' function is very useful.
Once you register the remaining quantiy for menu item running low, it prevents you from placing orders that exceed the registered quantity.
Our restaurants use the function for seasonal or limited menu items.
Lastly, please tell us about some features of your restaurant.
The biggest features include the volume and dynamic dining experience of an American restaurant, as well as our well-training staff providing an enjoyable atmosphere. Everything is even hand-made, including our dressing, sauces, and more.
