“ T’was the night before the Christmas, when all through the restaurant, not a morsel of food was left, not even a sprout...”
The Christmas party season has arrived. Across the country friends and colleagues are gearing up for the biggest night of the social calendar: “The Christmas Night Out”. Meanwhile in kitchens, restaurants and private dining rooms far and wide, restaurant managers are going into overdrive to ensure that they can meet the challenges that large party bookings present during the busy festive trading period.
At ResDiary we have a host of great features to help you at Christmas time - from tools to help manage large party or function bookings; to functionality to record pre orders and deposit payments. We make it so easy that all you will need to do this Christmas is get ready to rumble!
Function & Pre-Order sheets
Every restaurant manages function sheets and pre-orders in their own unique way. Some use internally shared documents, while others use specialized 3rd party applications. To help busy teams store all the important information in one place, we have introduced a direct URL link feature. This lets you add a link to your function sheets or completed pre- order forms onto the customer's booking details for quick and convenient access.
Easily add Deposits and Payments
Protect your restaurant against no show diners by taking deposits or full payments up front during the busy festive season.
Set up your Christmas promotions
Let your customers know what menus are available over the festive period and let them choose from the options available. Don't forget the sprouts!
