Group Ordering
TAS’s Group Ordering functionality simplifies the process of ordering for large groups by saving
the host the time of soliciting and collecting orders on hard copy menus and then calling the
restaurant to place the order.
* TAS’s Group Order function allows any individual responsible for coordinating large meal orders (e.g. pharmaceutical representatives, administrative assistants, etc.) to effectively and efficiently organize ordering from their desktop by using an email invitation system.
* Invitees click a link on the invitation email that takes them directly to the restaurant’s online ordering site to place their order.
* The order is then placed and tracked as part of the Group Order and a notification is sent back to the host.
* The host is able to view pending orders and track who has and has not placed their order.
* The host is able to buy for everyone and set order amount limitations or have everyone buy on their own.
