New FoodStorm Features – Q2 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.

Closure Periods

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:

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.
