Ordering on an iPod

Obviously, the system is based on ordering and paying. The serving staff can enter orders centrally with their iPad, after which they are sent directly to the kitchen. To enter orders directly at the tables, staff can be given an iPad, iPhone or even an iPod Touch.

Changing or combining tables? Not a problem. The floorplan can be changed with only few clicks in Lightspeed.

Various payment options

Lightspeed can be connected to nearly all payment providers and every legal means of payment: debit card, Apple Pay, credit card or gift cards.

Dividing a tab is easy, as is digital receipt of tips. Tips can be distributed later in the manner easily determined in the system.

Equip your restaurant with self-order stations in the form of iPads at the tables, relieving the serving staff of any involvement in payments.


Lightspeed offers a wide range of reporting options. Reports of the monthly, weekly or even hourly turnover can be generated. The dishes and products that are the most popular among your guests can also be seen, of course. This can all be done per location, per region or even for all locations combined.

Shift and work reports can be generated with a single click, enabling you to monitor staff performance directly in the system. Reports can be sent automatically by e-mail to the individuals concerned at set times – each day, for example. Your chefs will no longer need to use computers to keep abreast of the day-to-day activities in their restaurants.

Lightspeed can be connected to popular bookkeeping software.

Delivery and take-out

Many restaurants use popular sites like Deliveroo, UberEATS and other home delivery platforms for the delivery or take-out of orders. With Lightspeed, these orders can be directly received on your cash register system’s iPad. Do you want complete control and avoid third-party commissions? Activate your own delivery system using Order Ahead.

Lightspeed’s extensive e-Commerce possibilities can be used to reach more guests, to easily sell merchandise online, promote your delivery menu and allow guests to make reservations.

To enhance guest loyalty, you can issue points that they can exchange later for discounts or free orders.

From day one, our focus has been on more than just transactions: we want to help business owners to work efficiently, to base their decisions on data and to create an unforgettable experience for their clients and guests.
