Everything you need to know about CloudWaitress
Getting StartedLast Updated: 7 days ago
Before getting started, it's important to understand that the process of setting up an online ordering system for your business involves many moving parts. It requires a certain level of commitment to set up and implement into your business. However the benefits it brings greatly outweigh the time it takes to set up such a system. It generally takes a business between 2 - 28 days to implement such a system depending on the amount of time invested. The most time consuming aspect of the process is adding all your menus. If your menu is simple, the set up process is much faster.
One of the goals of our system is to make this entire setup process as smooth as possible. We highly encourage you to reach out to us if you need help with any aspect of the setup process as we will be able to clear any doubts and guide you through the process easily.
