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
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 systemsfor 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.
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.
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.
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.
If you have any questions or if we can support you with our qnips products in your Corona measures, please make an appointment today via email to email@example.com or contact us directly at +49 511 165 899 0.
Just in time for our “soft” restart in the qnips office, we have developed our own corona icons, as an indication of compliance with hygiene and safety measures. These are intended to contribute to the safe teamwork of our employees in times of the corona pandemic.
Instead of restricting the use of the corona icons only to the qnips office internally, we have decided to make the icons available for free download to everyone. The health and safety of all our employees, partners and customers is our most important concern.
You’ll find the icons as .SVG and .PNG in our GitHub profile and can use, change, customize or colorize them as long and as often as you like. Stay healthy!
Manual was yesterday. Thanks to Userpilot there are now interactive tutorials for the qnips Dashboard. Be successful with step-by-step instructions (and get less support requests)!
You would like to explain how to use the Dashboard to a new colleague, but haven’t had the chance to learn all the functions yourself? Then qnips now offers you the possibility to simplify the onboarding process by integrating the Userpilot.
Save time with Userpilot
Improve the dashboard experience for you and your key users or make it easier for new colleagues to get started. Supplement personal (telephone) training appointments with an individual tutorial, or simply refresh learned topics from a training course.
Time-saving: Don’t leaf through an endless manual for a long time, but receive instructions on exactly those processes that are relevant to your workflow. Dynamic: The Userpilot adapts individually to the changes in your dashboard. Interactive: A personalized user experience that allows you to complete exactly the guidance steps you need.
How the User Pilot works
Together with qnips, develop a dynamic online user guide for your dashboard, designed in your corporate design.

First relaxations of the corona measures come into effect and companies can slowly start thinking about resuming their daily business.
For retailers, a minimum distance of 1.5 metres still applies, with a maximum sales area of 800 m². Access controls at the entrances are intended to guarantee the minimum distances. A timetable for the reopening of the gastronomy should also be set.
This is how the digital entrance control works
Control the capacity utilisation of your company restaurant with the help of digital access control. Simply specify a maximum number of visitors and control the entrance automatically with a noticeable digital visitor or guest traffic light. qnips supports you in setting up such a digital display, which can also be easily integrated into your qnips Dashboard.
The quotient of the current canteen visitors and the maximum occupancy rate is updated in real time. The people counter transmits the current occupancy rate in real time to the intranet and to a digital display at the entrance of your company restaurant.
We can support you with a digital capacity utilisation display or do you have any further questions? Then please make an appointment today by e-mail to email@example.com or contact us directly on +49 511 165 899 0.

We are there for you!
COVID-19 poses great challenges, especially for the system and company catering industry.
Company restaurants are confronted with ever decreasing numbers of guests. Every day the situation changes and missing information makes the planning process for restaurateurs and caterers difficult to almost impossible.
So what can be done?
Quarantine cases and home office regulations already ensure that the risk of corona infections is reduced. But what about the employees who cannot work from the home office? The emergency staff of companies still want to be provided for!
Drastic times require drastic measures. But even now, there are still ways and means of securing even severely restricted restaurant operations and reducing the risk of infection.
Digital ordering processes enable the contactless supply of employees in the building as well as in the home office and thus open up additional secure supply channels. Since no one ordering process is suitable for all applications, we will present some customer projects below that may be of help in your current situation.
Please note that all these projects have been started before COVID-19 and therefore do not have to be a direct reaction of the mentioned customers to the current situation.
Online reservation of menus and seats (Example Chrono24)
COVID 19 factor: Avoid queues and ensure a fixed number of seats in the restaurant. Quantities that can be better planned in advance for food calculation.
The staff pre-orders a meal using a menu that is available online and can be accessed via a link. In addition, the employees have to select a time window of e.g. 30 minutes in which they want to go out to eat when placing their order. The system holds a certain capacity for a time slot and closes the slot when the maximum capacity is reached. This ensures that the company restaurant is not overloaded and long waiting times occur. The food is paid for on site as usual.
COVID-19 factor: Contact between guests is avoided in the restaurant. Ensuring a basic supply with a reduced team and reduced assortment.
Here the company relies on an app ordering system. Employees can pre-order their food from the office or on the road and pay directly from the app using PayPal or credit card. The order is displayed on a tablet as a Kitchen Monitor, which initiates production in the kitchen and sends the status of provisioning to the guest’s app in real time. The guest will be informed as soon as the order is ready to be picked up and can pick up his food at the counter.
COVID-19 factor: Closure of the company catering and supply of guests by delivery. Ensure a basic supply with reduced staff and reduced product range.
Storck employees have the possibility to pre-order snacks and breakfast via app and webshop. They pay against their wage and salary account. The orders can be cancelled or changed at any time.
The ordering processes can be tailored to your requirements. These are just a few examples, which can be combined in many different ways. For example, different payment methods, ordering or delivery options, time slot reservations and channels are also available in other compositions.
We can support you with an individualized pre-order system or do you have any further questions? Then the best thing is to make an appointment today by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us directly on +49 511 165 899 0. Stay safe!
A picture is worth a thousand words. That’s why with the qnips “Unsplash” integration you will find thousands of pictures, that are free for commercial use.
Search for suitable Content to illustrate your news or to inform about a promotion week by adding the right photo. All this is just a few clicks away.
Integrated into your dashboard, the new feature allows you to search for images online as you create content. Choose quickly and easily from over one million freely available, high-quality images, compiled by an international community of professional photographers and creators.
What is Unsplash? Unsplash is an online image database of over one million freely available, high resolution images that you can use for free. For more information about the Unsplash license, click here.
Here’s how it works Within the “Content System” of the qnips Dashboard, in the “Media” tab you will now find the new button “Unsplash Images” . This will take you directly to the new image search. The rest is very simple: search, find, use. Totally free of charge.
Good to know. Unsplash “speaks” English only (and can therefore only be searched in English), but qnips translates your German search terms automatically, just like you can translate your menus with our CAT tool. Good, right?
Are you interested in new features by qnips or do you have any questions? Then make an appointment today via e-mail to email@example.com or contact us directly on +49 511 165 899 0.
At the start of the LMIV in Germany, qnips has developed its own icons for allergens or other labels, which have become quite popular and are now used thousands of times in our apps, catering portals, menus and displays.
We were repeatedly asked by our customers to be able to use the icons also in other places (e.g. other internal systems) to achieve a consistent labelling. Of course, we are happy about a broad use of our own solutions, but instead of limiting, the added value of the customer always comes first.
We have therefore decided to make the icons available to free of charge.
You can find the icons as .SVG and .PNG in our and you can use, change, customize or color them as long and as often as you want. Have fun with it!
