Product Creation and Taxes
Name your Product Category with something easy to identify. Examples:
Map the tax and deposit categories
Extend your products to the Remote Kitchen location
Set up Remote Order Market Location
Remote Order Market location’s main purpose is a designated delivery location.
You will need to create a location in AMS for each Locker or Pick up counter.
Ensure the market location address is correct.
Remote order locations that use Lockers will need the hardware deployed to the market location which is similar to deploying a kiosk.
The market location will need tax and deposits mapped properly.
ImportantProducts are NOT extended to the Remote Order Market locations in AMS. Products need to be added to the Kitchen Market location in AMS and managed through the manage site.
Set up Kitchen Location
The Remote Ordering Kitchen’s purpose is to propagate products to the manage site and send orders to the food production kitchen.
All products added to the Kitchen location in AMS will propagate to the Manage site allowing custom menus to be built for your remote delivery market locations.
Kitchen printer is deployed to the AMS kitchen the same as a market kiosk.
Manage Site – Getting Started
Once you have logged into the manage site you will be presented with a drop-down menu

Menus – Able to create menus and extend to specified remote order locations
Orders – Kitchen production orders are received
Kitchens – Kitchens where orders are received. Operators can have multiple kitchens setup in the manage site/AMS
Delivery Locations – Includes delivery address, specifies number of Lockers, or pick up window

Click the New Menu Button to create a new menu

You can create a single or multiple delivery times for each menu

Each order received will generate a printed order receipt
All active and future orders can be tracked in the orders queue

Locker’s cubby size may be changed for larger orders/products

Kitchen Manage Site
You can create a new kitchen from the manage site and associate it with an AMS Remote Order location.
This is very helpful if you are managing multiple kitchens and need to associate a location to the nearest kitchen.
To enable or disable delivery locations from a specific kitchen, right click the kitchen entry and select "Delivery Locations" from the menu.
Delivery Locations Manage Site
Manage your remote delivery locations
If Lockers are deployed at a remote order location, you can see how many locker banks are associated with them.
The number of cubby doors are visible for each Lockers bank.
You can view the status of each Lockers cubby by clicking spyglass icon to the right of the locker entry.
Reserved status indicates that there is an order to be placed in that cubby.
The operator can enable or disable a cubby door.
The operator may want to disable a cubby for maintenance purposes.
To add a locker bank to an existing delivery location (if you are, for example, expanding capacity at a location), right click the existing location and select "New Locker Bank"
As of right now, you cannot delete a locker bank manually. You must work through Avanti support for this since it has potential business-impacting implications.
