Tutum offers a digital contactless menu

The contactless digital menu is easily accessible to customers in the form of a QR code. Zooming in on the QR code with your phone camera opens the restaurant’s menu.

To explain how the solution works, Pjotrs Pavlovs, owner of Tutum, says that the catering company’s representatives fill in the menu on the control panel, indicating names, prices, the number of calories, adding pictures, etc. Guests can not only view the menu on their phones but also order food directly from their phones. 

“Guests don’t have to wait for the waiter to bring the menu or for a menu to become available. When demand is at its peak, you may have to wait a long time for a menu. The guest can pick up the phone at any time and order something extra, like dessert,” he says.

The menu is distributed both online as a QR code image and in the restaurant as a sticker on doors, tables, or leaflets.

“It’s a great saving for catering companies! To change the menu, the restaurant has to re-glue the existing menu or print a new one,” says P. Pavlovs.

The idea came from his own experience.

 “When I order takeaway, I constantly come across websites where the menu is in pdf format or it is not possible to order food online. The development of the idea was also influenced by COVID-19. When restaurants open, I will most likely not want to touch a paper menu in a restaurant. I would like to feel safer,” he says.

In the future, the company would like to supplement the solution with the feature to connect a receipt printing system and find a way to integrate the digital menu into POS terminals and the R_Keeper system. The plan is also to expand functionality and make it as convenient as possible for businesses and guests.
