In most restaurants, sometimes there are several kitchens or divisions to process food/orders. For example, there are orders that are processed in the Kitchen, and there are also orders that are processed at the Bar. You can provide a single printer at both locations, then from the DealPOS Product settings, we can set product categories based on the place in the process. So that as an order comes in, it will automatically print on the spot, of course this feature can make it easier for the kitchen to process the orders. This feature is only available exclusively in Mobile Apps, which you can get here.
