FAQ - How do I optimise my venue layout using data?


Data-driven decisions that create better experiences.

Tables are where customers spend most of their time with your business. So this portion of real estate plays a massive role in creating unforgettable experiences. What if you had the data to determine what works and what doesn't work for your tables?


With Insights - Table Insights, you can derive the data from your Tables Add-on and use this data to answer key questions like:

  • Are there certain tables that make customers stay longer and order more? Which ones? What’s the pattern? How can I make every table like this?
  • What’s the commonality among the tables where people rarely sit or stay long? What can I do to improve them?
