In general, the critical point for all professions that require physical communication with customers is to be friendly. Although it can sometimes be tough, you may need to put aside your problems and bad moods. The most challenging part, keeping a positive attitude, is also the most crucial factor. Showing that you do your job willingly professionally will always come back as positive feedback.
It is essential to stay active in this profession. Standing for hours may keep you fit but tire you at the same time. For this reason, it is very important to eat correctly, engage in activities that will increase your motivation, and get plenty of rest. The higher your energy, the more energy that your customers show will increase simultaneously.
Food waits, but customers don’t! Speed is also a critical feature that waiters should have. We’re not just talking about physical speed, of course. Understanding the orders quickly, taking the necessary actions, and conveying them to the kitchen requires an advanced system. No more running to the kitchen to keep the whole order in mind.

What we mean by communication is to establish effective and constructive communication with everyone throughout the entire ordering process. The waiter’s responsibility is to protect and maintain contact between the customer and the kitchen staff. Don’t worry. We developed a system to make this job more manageable. The era of shouting the orders towards the kitchen is over. With the KDS (Kitchen Display System) module offered by Simpra, the orders you enter into the system are instantly sent to the kitchen. What is more, you are also be informed as soon as the orders are ready.
Everyone can make mistakes, but it is necessary to avoid situations that cause loss. In this context, the most crucial element will be the payment process. Making mistakes on receipts and checks can lead to confusing and irreversible results. With the Simpra Waiter Order Module, you can easily view the orders and the payment info of the tables. In addition, for your customers who want to change or merge tables, you can easily connect the table info in the POS system.
