Home delivery order requires
Cust Plugin, formerly known as OroCust provides delivery and pickup management in ORO POS. When a customer calls the store if store phone is connected to caller id device Cust will look for a matching phone number and suggest a delivery address. In other cases, the store operators can save the customer profiles and proceed to the next step. Cust is integrated with Google Map API, to calculate delivery distance. In the recent version of Cust also receives online orders from Menugreat with separate connector plugin. To enable these services we need to follow these steps
- Backoffice Configuration.
- Delivery Dispatch view
- Sending Order To the Kitchen.
- Assigning Driver and Driver View.
