Content Management

Change data in your personal dashboard quickly & easily:

- Products, categories, suggestions, descriptions and prices

Add a new product or category in 1 click. Or change an existing product:

  • Name
  • Price
  • Description shown on website or in menu app
  • Possible specific availability – for example when you only offer dame blanche on Wednesday
  • Applicable sales tax rate
  • Picture of product

Because of our integrated approach after changing data in your dashboard you click 1 time on ‘save’. 20 seconds later the change will be realised in both your POS system, website, webshop, menu app or even at possible external partners. Adding changes to your personal dashboard means adding changes at once directly to different Connect24-7 apps plus possible applications of partners you work with and which Connect24-7 is connected with. Examples of partners are payment providers and marketplaces for orders like TakeAway.com and JustEat. You decide which apps you prefer to use!

- Personal information like phone number, e-mail address, address, etc.

Keep your personal data always accurate and up-to-date so your contact information on your website and possible external marketplaces are always up-to-date.

- Opening hours

You manage opening hours of your business and webshop in your dashboard. These are always kept up-to-date on your website and possibly for your external partners. Only add or change data once so data is always up-to-date for customers and partners in the network.

- Closing days & holidays

You can quickly add your additional closing days and holidays in the dashboard enabling them to be directly shown on your website. Optionally you can automatically send an e-mail to your customers to inform them about your business being closed for a couple of days. When you operate a webshop and/or customer card system you automatically gather contact data of your customers and develop your own customer database. This will allow you to easily send updates on opening & closure of your business to all of them. Increase the value of your customer service and your business.

  • Orders
  • Reservations
  • Payments
  • Customer data
  • Customer credits
  • Earned points or discounts
  • Group orders
  • Invoices

Control management - Reports

Reports

The dashboard provides you with a visual overview of turnover and number of transactions in different sales channels – POS system, webshop and possible partner marketplaces. This allows you to check your progress in one view.

  • Turnover per week, month or longer periods
  • Customers
