INSTALLATION

HARDWARE RECOMMENDATIONS

Here are the recommendations for the Hardware for running DinePlan and its Modules

DINEPLAN SERVER

You need at least one PC computer to host the DinePlan database.  This computer normally also has the DinePlan software installed, but this is not necessary. You can have just one computer. If the Location is running with one Terminal, one system is more than enough to run.

The Server should have Minimum of 4 GB RAM and above 2.5 GHZ Processor.

DINEPLAN TERMINAL

The terminal will be connected to the DinePlan Server. It should be a Minimum of 4 GB RAM and Processor is above 2 GHZ

DINECHEF TERMINAL

The terminal will be connected to the DinePlan Server. It should be a Minimum of 2 GB RAM and Processor is above 2 GHZ

TABLETS

DineFly runs on Android Phones or Tablets. The Minimum version recommended is 4.0

DineMenu runs on Android Tablets. The Minimum version recommended is 4.0 

PRINTERS

DinePlan only supports Printer which has ESC/POS enabled. Most of the printer have a support already.

NETWORK HARDWARE

Using a wireless connection to connect computers and printers is not recommended. It’s better to use network cables to avoid connection problems at critical times.

Whenever we use DineFly or DineMenu or any wireless ordering in the Outlet, it is recommended to use the WIFI Extenders.
