Don’t Attempt To Turn Your Customers Into Confused Order Drones
Customers come to your restaurant for the experience…to be entertained…to be served professionally. Don’t make the mistake of trying to turn your valued guests into order takers. Let your staff of servers do their job by taking orders from your guests and use Tablet Based Menus (TBMs) to add to your guests’ experience.
The advantage of TBM’s is giving your customers a superior experience though a professionally created, designed and executed electronic menu….not turning your customers into order takers.

Customers Love Bent Oak TBMs!
Customers love the convenience, fun and accuracy of Tablet Based Menus (TBMs)! Even older customers love them because they are easy to use, provide an added dimension to the dining experience, and because they can FINALLY SEE THE MENU in low-light dining rooms.
When customers see your menu items, can view what they are ordering and utilize the wine pairing function, it all adds up to a better customer experience…and more profits for you. (Click on the video to the left for a full overview.)
9 Things to Avoid When Choosing A Traditional Alarm Company
7 Things to Avoid When Choosing An Electronic Menuing System
We listened to all the things that should concern you about electronic menuing systems… then fixed them.
Typical Tablet Based System
Attempts to remove the server from the customer relationship and turn the guest into an order drone.
Not designed by real restaurant owners, for real restaurant owners. Typically designed by computer geeks and engineers.
Doesn’t pair menu items with wine and doesn’t have a great wine list function.
Owners are frustrated with the capability of the actual installation with what was promised. (It’s very difficult to turn your customers into order takers, which is what typical systems concentrate on.)
Installed permanently on table or on wall next to table.
Tied directly to POS
Tries to do many things, achieves none especially well.
Coffee & Cream: a Better Way right
Technology can’t replace the human touch, and your servers provide the one-to-one human interaction that your customers need. That interaction is a key part of your brand and your customer experience…don’t try to replace it with sterile technology…it won’t work.
Bent Oak Tablets running Menuvative Software is the only TBM designed by a real owner of 17 table-service restaurants, for owners of restaurants, like you!
Built into every Bent Oak Tablet System is our patented wine pairing system. Pairing Pro automatically pairs the right wine with the right menu item, freeing you from reliance on inexperienced and unskilled waitstaff and expensive wine Sommeliers. The system also functions as a professional and searchable inventory of your wine.
Coffee & Cream is not for you 1,2
Bent Oak Tablets Might Not Be For You If…
You don’t utilize table service in your restaurant. If your customers order at a counter you will not benefit from our systems.
Our advice would be to go to your POS supplier and see it they have a system that will better serve your customers.
Your average ticket is not at least $12. We believe that every investment in a restaurant should have a fast ROI and a restaurant usually needs $12 and up to achieve a fast ROI.
If your typical ticket is less than that, we suggest that you look for other places to invest your hard earned money.
However… if you are one of the almost 250,000 independent and small chain restaurants in the US who have table service and a typical ticket of $12 or more, then Bent Oak Tablets are the best choice for you and your restaurant. If you have any doubt, contact one of our TBM consultants at 1-800.535.8948 x 704 for a FREE, 17-minute, no-obiligation, no-pressure ROI analysis for your business.
