New FoodStorm Features – Q2 2017
June 8th, 2017
The FoodStorm Team are continuously looking for ways to innovate and enhance our catering software for an improved customer experience. As part of our mid-year upgrade, we are excited to announce the release of a great range of new features that will help our catering customers achieve their full potential. Check out what’s new below.
FoodStorm now provides powerful new functions for managing days and times when your business cannot accept orders:
- Customers can now specify unlimited future closure periods.
- For customers who operate multiple sites in FoodStorm, you can optionally specify closures specific to each site.
- Customers can now create Time Blocks that restrict orders for a specific time of day – for example during busy periods or major events when your kitchen is at capacity.
- FoodStorm now displays a warning when you attempt to add an order for a day when you are closed:
Online Invoice Payment
Customers using the FoodStorm Payments & Shopping Cart modules now have the option of allowing your customers to pay an invoice online with a simple click:
Your customers don’t need a shopping cart account to pay invoices online, and you can do away with hand-written remittance advices!
Online Quote Approval and Deposit Payment
FoodStorm users now have the option of allowing your customers to approve quotes online by simply clicking an Approve button in their quote.
If you’re using the Payments module and your quote requires a deposit payment, customers must provide credit card details and pay the deposit amount in order for the quote to be approved:
Reckon Accounts Hosted Integration
For our Australian customers we’re pleased to announce a new integration with Reckon Accounts Hosted. For customers using the Desktop version of Reckon Accounts, you now have the option of switching to Reckon’s hosted version.
Different Minimum Order Amounts per Company
For online ordering, customers can now override their minimum order amount for selected companies, allowing even more of your customers to place orders online.
Promo Codes per Site
Customers operating multiple sites can now create online promo codes for specific sites only. This can be great for franchises, or for piloting promotions at selected locations.
