A2A Advertising Ltd

Website: https://a2a.co.uk

Email: andrew@a2a.co.uk

Phone: 015395 64486

Service:
Customer Registration Service and Table Ordering system for pubs, bars, restaurants & cafes.

Customer Registration:
You can have your dedicated web page open on table-order.co.uk and as a customer comes to your entrance your staff member asks and types in the name, email and tel number and presses submit, and then shows the customer to their table. Alternatively, the customer sits at a table inside or outside and scans a QR code that’s in front of them, this opens a web page and they type into the form their name, tel number, email address and press submit.

Either way an email arrives at a mailbox that states date and time, name, tel and email of the person. If you do not have a GDPR policy then this data is covered by A2A Advertising Ltd’s own GDPR. Should an outbreak of Covid occur then you get in touch with us and we release the data to the authorities. You – the client never see the data. Your clients data is safe.

Table Ordering:
We can help with Table Ordering – our system helps in minimising contact as your clients can order their food and drink without your staff visiting their table to take an order.

The customer scans a QR code displayed on their table and it opens a webpage like the above and the customer types in their table number, details and their food and drink order and presses submit, a second or two later the order arrives at the laptop or device by the till, ‘table order from table number 22’.

The order is then processed and drinks are taken out and the waiter says, ‘and your food is on it’s way’. You can collect some info from customers too and then use that with your marketing.

We provide you with a poster either A4 or A5 with the QR codes, and you can have your wi-fi code and details as you require.
