Frequently Asked Questions

  • Our restaurants & bars have used the same ordering system for years:  seems to work - why should I change to Fourth?

  • What data do you feed into Fourth Analytics?

    FA turns all the labour data and Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) data from the Fourth solution into insight – and full integration with other data sources, for example, POS, completes the picture.
