There are 2 types of KDS that you can choose for your venue.
- Expeditor (Expo)
- Preparation (Prep)
Expeditors (Expo) act as the overall view of the kitchen, whereas Preparation (Prep) screens act as the individual prep areas. It is common for the Expo to see all of the items, but Prep will usually only see their own items.
The functions that can be performed also differ between the two screen types
- When an item is marked as Making on a Prep screen, the status is reflected on the Expo Screen.
- When an item is bumped on a Prep screen, it is marked as ready on the Expo screen.
- Only an Expeditor can Rush an order
- Only an Expeditor can adjust Preparation delay times
