Getting a foothold in the restaurant business is extremely difficult in Bangkok. We faltered at first, especially when it came to efficiently fulfilling our diner’s demands. Being the one of the few Indian restaurants in this part of Bangkok, we were flooded with diners and take-away orders! It was utter chaos! It was then we realised that we needed to implement some much-needed tech to streamline our activities. We looked at a many software solutions, from different vendors, like Wondersoft, Compeat, Dinerware, and so on. We even took help from online resources like www.pcworld.com.
