As of nowyou will find predefined picture formats in the content area for the individual display options of the qnips app and the catering portalDepending on the needed display position, you can easily insert your own material or use pictures form the Unsplash Integration. Through that, all pictures will automatically be displayed in the right format! 

The matching image section 

The new cropping function allows youto also choose the right image 
section additionally to the picture format.

The new cropping tool allows you to also choose the right image section additionally to the picture format. Make surethat no important detail is cut off in the chosen format or unwanted black edges are created. Just move the mask on top of the picture to the right spot and click on save! 

Don’t worryShould you not have the capacity to add your pictures to the different  formatsthe system will just fall back onto the original and will use that for the chosen display option. 

Colours, filters and effects 

As of nowyou will also find our own integrated picture editor on the qnips dashboardSimiliar to the functions of different image processing programsyou can now directly edit your pictures on the dashboard with effectstexts and correctionsWe compiled a few tricks and tips for the editing of your pictures below: 

1.) Caution with colours and filters! 

Even though filters are the easiest method to edit a picturemany of them are not suitable for every image. But you can easily achieve visible effects with small adjustments of the grain and the brightness. 

Changes in grain and brightness make the image look softer and more modern.
In our example, we just activated the brightness and the grain and the picture already seems softer and more modern.

2.) Work with contrasts 

picture does not just consist of colours but also of the contrast from light and dark. Through adjustments of the contrasts you can give the pictures a more structured look. Colour contrasts are also important when you use text on the picturessince they catch the attention of the viewer. 

Work with contrasts
In our example, we at first used a black rectangle as a text background. Then we put a text box in the same size on top of it and chose a white writing. 

3.) Use of simple and large picture elements 

To specifically direct the eye of the viewer, you can work with simple and big picture  elements, as they help to increase the picture’s message. 

Use of easy and large picture elements 
In our example, we added a red heart icon as a last step, again as a contrast to black and white. It symbolizes our excitement for the lunch menu!

With qnips products against COVID-19: Corona measures at a glance!

The “new” normal in Corona everyday life poses a great challenge for many restaurateurs and caterers. We will give you an overview of how you can master this “new everyday life” together with our qnips products and implement Corona measures:

  • Online reservation systems via app and catering portal
  • Pre-order food for delivery or collection at the workplace
  • Capacity utilisation control via people counter
  • Corona “traffic light” for regulating the flow of visitors

Online reservation systems via app and catering portal

With the beginning of the relaxation of the corona measures, reservation systems have become particularly important. Reduced seating capacities and detailed recording of contact data require a lot of time and a good overview.

With our reservation systems for the app and the catering portal, you always have an overview of your reservations. Inform your guests about free reservation time slots and enter all important contact data directly online. Also benefit from the electronic reservation book with table management and receive email and SMS notifications about new reservations.

Pre-order meals for delivery or pick up at the workplace

The pre-ordering of food and the collection or delivery to the workplace are also brought into focus by Corona.

Pre-order food via app or catering portal

Enable your employees to order quickly and easily online directly from the menu. Specify a delivery location or a time for pickup. Payment is also made online and contactless.

Component selection

You can also individualise the purchase orders by releasing components. Your employees then have the additional option of for example putting together the burger of their choice and selecting from various snack components.

Capacity utilisation control via people counter

With the so-called people counters you can measure the capacity utilization in your stores. You can set a limit for a maximum capacity so that employees can recognize high capacity utilization early on and, if necessary, postpone their visit to another time. You also receive statistics on the average capacity utilization on different days of the week and at different times.

Additionally, you can transfer an occupancy display to your app or your catering portal to show your employees minute by minute what the current occupancy rate in the company restaurant is and how many seats are still available.

Corona “traffic light” for regulating the flow of visitors

Use a digital capacity utilisation display to ensure that there are only as many guests in the company restaurant at one time as it is necessary to maintain all minimum distances.

The Corona “traffic light” measures in real time at the entrance and exit of your restaurant the number of people entering or leaving the restaurant. Inform your guests about free seats and possible waiting times. This eye-catching digital occupancy display can be implemented with existing people counters or independently.
