This is the reason that Restaurant Amber choose Annoncer;
“In Amber at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong we have looked in bringing the digital experience to another level, creating a seamless guest experience and gain in significant efficiencies in our operations. Annoncer is an integral part where our table management & POS systems are seamlessly integrated into an extremely efficient operation. Where all departments have access to important operational data. Where we normally have one of the most senior chefs and a senior service member managing the pass, Annoncer manages this process seamless for us, so we have not gained in efficiency, we have also enabled our key team members to look after the quality of a guest experience and not the tickets”
