Waiter Pad for Datasym is a modern handheld ordering solution that connects via WiFi to a restaurant’s hospitality system; recording and transmitting customer orders to preparation areas, as well as instantly updating the restaurant's Point of Sale (DPOS).

Using an iPod touch, Waiter Pad enables restaurant staff to effortlessly capture orders while at the customer’s side allowing them to focus more on customer service rather than the journey between table and DPOS terminal simply to process orders. This saves time, both for the restaurant and for the customer, which in turn increases efficiency and enhances profitability.
