Being a new innovation, at-table ordering is bound to suffer some apprehension.

Here we dispel some myths and offer solutions.

My older clientele can’t use smart phones

Research by National Seniors in 2019 found that 70% of older Australians use a search engine every day, and 68% do not get frustrated with technology

It is important to discard outdated assumptions.  Many older Australians are tech-proficient.  While some older Australians are digitally excluded, age alone is not a useful predictor of technological proficiency.  Older Australians are a diverse group.

I need it to integrate with my POS

Do you really?

You can offer your diners the safety of full contactless dining. Many pubs and restaurants have turned the Covid Pandemic recession into a boom by demonstrating concern for their customer’s wellbeing by removing physical menus and ONLY ACCEPTING contactless payments.

You can do this too, by completely replacing your old POS system with Magic.Menu SE


At the end of the day, it is more important to integrate ordering platforms with your accounting software than your cash register.

Ordering apps are too expensive

YES the others are!

BUT NOT Magic.Menu SE:

At 90% less for the average restaurant or cafe, Magic.Menu is the most affordable ordering and payment solution.


Automating costs jobs

NO! ~ not if you think sideways…

At-table ordering isn’t all about replacing waitstaff. It’s about modernising your operation for efficiency.

The wages you save should be diverted to more productive areas. That person waisting hours each shift standing in front of a POS screen entering orders and by the table for an average of 8 minutes taking each order can be moved:

  • to the kitchen or bar to speed up production and service speeds
  • on the floor hosting and upselling your customers
  • spend more time clearing and resetting tables to increase turnover rates
