Support

Using the Tablet for Submitting Issues:
  • 86ing
  • Driver/Order issues
  • Upcharging
  • Temporarily Pausing Service (approval required)

86ing
Staff can make quick, on-the-fly changes directly from the dashboard. In the event that staff needs to 86 a menu item, they can do so from the Menu tab. Once an item has been 86’d from the tablet, it will be updated across all online ordering platforms automatically.

Driver/Order Issues
Should staff members need support for driver or order issues, help tickets can be submitted through the dashboard. If a driver does not show, or an order is packaged incorrectly, simply view the ticket details of the order from the Orders Homepage. From here, staff can type out the issue and submit it to our team to resolve.

Upcharging
To upcharge a menu item that has already been fulfilled, please view the ticket “Details” from the Orders Homepage and submit a request to our team.

Pausing Service
Pausing services can be completed from the tablet (from the Services tab) or by contacting Support at (213) 352-5180.

Kitchen Setup

Your Ordermark tablet will need to be located within an area where the kitchen staff can easily view & interact with the tablet. All of your orders will come through the Ordermark tablet.

Printer and Tablet Station Ordermark Tablet & Printer

  • Keep the Ordermark tablet plugged in with the provided charger to manage your orders without interruption (and to prevent the tablet from dying!)
  • Make sure the Ordermark printer’s volume is turned on at all times
  • Flip the stand upright to remove stress on the charger
  • Keep the tablet away from extreme temperatures (i.e. stoves or ovens in your kitchen)
  • Most Partners keep their tablet at the Host Stand or Expo line

Delivery Best Practices

Preparing Orders

  • Designate a special prep area
  • Designate an area for finishing and packaging
  • Always use the correct, approved packaging to ensure food stays fresh from store to door

Checking Orders

One of the most commonly reported problems with delivery orders is missing or incorrect items. Prevent negative reviews & keep customers coming back with a couple of best practices.

Recommended Best Practices

  • The kitchen staff must carefully review the details for each individual order.
    • This includes any special instructions listed by the customer, before handing it to the driver
  • Use a marker to check off each item on the receipt, ensuring each item is placed in the bag
  • Write item descriptions on the packaging so they are easy to identify
  • Whomever is responsible for checking an individual order should sign/initial the receipt (to hold them accountable!)
  • Separate foods by temperature- keep hot and cold foods in separate bags, when possible
  • Pay special attention to food allergies! Food allergens must be clearly identified and kept separate from the rest of the package contents
  • If an allergy is specified in the online order, make sure it’s circled or highlighted on the receipt so the customer is aware you have accounted for it
  • Seal packages tightly
  • Make the receipt visible

Packaging Orders for Transit

Proper packaging will preserve the quality of the food and prevent any food safety issues. Poorly packaged food = unhappy customers

Handing Order to Delivery Driver

Designate a specific area for kitchen staff to handoff all delivery orders to couriers (or a place for couriers to pick orders up).

Recommended Best Practices

  • Designate Delivery Shelving
    • Place orders on shelves designated specifically for orders picked up by delivery couriers
  • Create Clear Signage
    • Display in-store signage that is clearly identifiable for online orders
  • Identify Delivery Couriers
    • Many couriers are not required to wear company uniforms, so they may come in street clothes. Keep an eye out for branded hats, bags, etc.
  • Triple Check your Order
    • Kitchen staff must confirm the order name or number with the driver before handing it off
