Since offering takeout, curbside and delivery has become a crucial component to restaurant and catering businesses in this current climate, we’ve further upgraded our online ordering platform to make the process even easier for your clients.

CaterZen’s online ordering system was already one of the most important tools in our catering software, with features including:

  • integration with 20+ point-of-sale systems
  • integration with CaterZen tools like CRM, email and loyalty programs
  • mobile-friendly interface
  • completely customizable menus and branding
  • upsell module

Based on feedback from our clients, we’ve added new features to our online ordering module to make it more user-friendly, while allowing more options for unique types of orders.

Watch the video below to learn more:


Custom Home Screen Graphic

When clients arrive at your online ordering portal, you can present to them a custom clickable graphic, that can link to starting a new order.

Our designers can create a graphic for you with your unique messaging, imagery, and call-to-action.

New Cart Button

We’ve made it easier for your clients to visit their cart by adding a new tab.

Custom Fields for Order Types

Now you’re able to create custom fields for an order type.

For example, if you offer curbside pickup, you can request the user’s car details.

ASAP Order Ready

If your client is interested in picking up or receiving the order as soon as possible, they can choose this option.

The time displayed to the user when the order will be ready will be based on a default time that you set on how long you'd need to prepare the order.

Tip Calculator

In the checkout process, clients can now select a tip percentage that gets automatically added to the total.

Special Payment Methods

In order to allow for unique business types, we’ve added a custom payment method to streamline how your clients to order from you.

For example, if your restaurant is in a hotel, you can offer a "bill to room account number" field.
