I’m writing this blog during my lunch break and I’m starving already! Let me open the Lunch Order Portal. It’s more like any other food order website and it’s user friendly too. This way, I can book my meals and our Pantry Team member collects the cash too. Okay, I just place the order. Let me get back to writing!

No more pantry staff to spend early mornings fighting issues associated with paper-based pantry systems such as collecting money and dealing with improper orders. With the all-new lunch order feature, users can easily save hours each day by introducing online menu orders. Every order is completed successfully and the Pantry Team can effectively manage every order in no time. The Lunch Order list gets updated with the user bookings and notifications are received via email too.

In addition, our team has implemented the very same features in-house and guess what? We all love the convenience of this 24/7 system that can be accessed from work, home or from your smartphone. Online orders have become more accurate, quick and provides our users peace-of-mind that their orders are received successfully. Our users are guaranteed to receive their orders, whatever it might be.

Leverage the Dock and Microsoft SharePoint Platform

What’s the best part? These features are within your sharepoint intranet portal from Dock, powered by Microsoft SharePoint Online. No more hassles! Go to the Lunch Order Portal, select the menu and hit the submit button. Your order will be received by the Pantry Team member instantly.  

Greater control

Since this feature works within Microsoft SharePoint Online, the Pantry Team has access to easily maintain and update the menus or catalogs online. The lunch order reports are available as a SharePoint List, which can be exported in Microsoft Excel format too. The portal also allows you to view the detailed order report with the user details, order details, department and location.
