What is a Kitchen Display System (KDS)

KDS is a system that specializes in improving the back-of-house operations through the use of monitors and a display system that is integrated with the POS. Each station in the kitchen will have a monitor that is used to display items rang in through the POS that need to be prepared by the respective stations. This automated systems eliminates the need for printers and papers. 

Coursing Manager

Group course items such as table service, drinks, and desserts giving you the ability to send items in one chunk so that items are delivered to customers when they should be. 

Cook Times

Cook times are managed so that food items with shorter and longer cook times are balanced, ensuring that the food arrives to the customer at the appropriate time.


Reduce training costs, secure and search for restaurant’s recipes, track nutrition and allergy information with the help of a recipe viewer. 

Basic Routing

Route specific food items to appropriate kitchen stations such as fryer, grill, or pantry. Routing ensures that food is moving in the right direction.

Delayed Routing

How They Work Together

The KDS is connected with the POS so that orders taken front-of-house by the POS can be displayed back-of-house by the KDS for a seamless integration.
