iiko Version 7.1 Announcement

New tools will be delivered by the end of January 2020!*

Preventing End-of-Day Scam 

Already available to iikoCloud users

We are introducing a new tool that helps prevent a wide-spread scam practice—cash misappropriation. At the end of day, a server opens a list of closed orders, calculates the amount of all cash payments, enters this amount in the cash verification step, and pockets the remaining cash. We have added a special permission that makes it possible to control access to the amounts in closed orders. 

Handling Anonymous Customers 

We are making it easier to handle delivery and pickup orders placed by customers whose names and addresses are unknown: you won’t need to add a special customer file to the database. It is useful if, for instance, a customer does not want to provide their details when placing a pickup order. Also, such details can be missing if delivery or pickup orders come from aggregator websites.

Easy Order Handling in the Bar 

Already available to iikoCloud users 

iiko POS has a new order-taking mode that can be used in the bar to serve customers even faster during peak hours. For this, a bartender opens a tab for a customer to accumulate all orders made at the bar in one bill. A bartender may give it a name, view the tab, and add meals and drinks at any time. If a bartender swipes a card, a new order window opens up even if he or she was on the tab view screen.

Convenient Handling of Delivery Orders at the POS

Already available to iikoCloud users

If you use the same POS for both dine-in and delivery orders, we have some goods news! The required information on delivery orders is graphically presented on the dine-in order screen. There is a new button at the top of the screen, which you can use to quickly switch to the delivery handling mode. This button also shows delivery orders that require your attention.

We Care of Guests’ Well-Being

Already available to iikoCloud users

Allergic guests are being taken care of at your venue: your employees will not miss a warning on allergens in the item. It is given in the item name field and clearly noticeable on the order screen. A server may view details by clicking a single button.

New Solution for Android POS 

Will be available only to iikoCloud users

Low-cost POS with 5.5” screen fitted with a fiscal register and merchant acquiring—all you need to set up off-site catering or a small fast-food joint. We’ll have a special plan for this solution.

Even More Ways to Control Your Business 

Will be available only to iikoCloud users

As you already know, iikoExpert may detect misuse and warn restaurant owners about suspicious operations. We added new scam practices that the app will recognize and warn you about. You will be notified if one and the same customer visits your venue suspiciously often, if there are way too many discounts provided or their amount exceeds the usual value. Moreover, iiko would draw your attention to large bill amounts, as well as frequent use of bonus points in orders taken by one of your employees.

New Ways to Communicate With Your Guests 

Already available to iikoCloud users, Enterprise Plan

Now, you may be sure that your guests will be notified of your special offer: they will receive PUSH notification right in their iikoWallets.

New iikoWeb Features 

Will be available only to iikoCloud users

  • iikoWeb provides sales forecasts based on the history of sales. We have added a new report that graphically shows which goods your venue will run out soon, and so which menu items will be on the out-of-stock list. You can adjust your purchase orders accordingly and your forecast will become even more accurate.  
  • iiko already knows how to use sales forecasts to place purchase orders with external suppliers automatically. Now, it can place internal orders (to your commercial kitchen) as well.
  • You will be able to create combos and set up simple discounts right in iikoWeb.
  • Your smartphone will be as handy as your laptop when it comes time to handle purchase orders.
  • If you run a chain of spread-globally franchisees, you can view consolidated reports on revenues and royalty with account of different currencies used and different interest rates.

*iikoCloud users are the first to receive new features and options: they get updates biweekly. Those who use local versions will have these tools in iiko version 7.1.
