The benefits of an online restaurant menu are undeniable, including:
- Reducing the printing cost
- Environment friendly
- Updating the menu without re-printing
- Safer for both customers and staff: the online menu can limit cross-contamination from sharing the physical menu. It is especially important with the current COVID-19 pandemic
In this blog post, we will show you how to create a touchless online menu with our RMS component through some simple steps:
Step 1: Create online menu item

Step 2: Generate QR code

Step 3: Print the QR code
Print your QR code and put them in your restaurant’s places like tables, doors.
