Kitchen Display System

The Kitchen Display System (KDS) built to help your team serve up success.

Experience smooth service with an advanced Kitchen Display System (KDS), making the management and fulfilment of your incoming orders easy and efficient.

Discover the Kobas Kitchen Display System, the ultimate order management solution that streamlines kitchen operations across the UK. It enables kitchen teams to say goodbye to cluttered printer tickets (and paper waste!), and hello to reduced miscommunication, increased speed of service, and improved order accuracy.

With a flexible setup and intuitive features to utilise, this technology is perfectly placed to suit a variety of service styles across the hospitality industry including restaurants, pubs, food halls, coffee shops, and many others. Better yet, it has the versatility to be used across other operational areas too – such as the bar.

A setup to suit your kitchen

We’ve prepped our kitchen management software with the flexibility needed to work for your specific kitchen operation. Explore a configurable state management setup, order filters, and much more. Whether you operate a Quick Service Restaurant or a Fine Dining venue, our KDS can work for your business and your kitchen staff.

• Customise order states based on stages or prep stations
• Configure states to show on different KDS screens (stations) across your kitchen
• Track order statuses with configurable colour coding
• Group orders by categories
• Filter orders by order state or consumption mode
• Sort orders by state or time
• Suppress orders at each station by tills, table areas, and deliveries

Connected to your Kobas EPoS & Mobile POS

Our system takes care of organising your orders, so your team can focus on preparing delicious dishes. Once an order has been placed through your Kobas hospitality EPoS, we’ll send it to the correct stations based on your KDS setup and routing – ready for your kitchen team to take action.

Mobile POS
Reduce inaccuracies from inputting handwritten orders into the POS system and cut down the time spent on back-and-forth visits to static till points by using Mobile POS. When using our Mobile POS on a tablet, front-of-house staff can take orders and send them to the kitchen straight from a customer’s table.

Receive and manage online orders

If your business caters for online ordering, whether that’s using the Kobas Delivery / Click & Collect platform, or platforms like Deliveroo and UberEats using our integration with Deliverect, Kobas has you covered. Your online orders go straight to the Kitchen Display System in real time, so your team can easily identify and prioritise them quickly.

• Supports orders from the Kobas ordering app including To Table, Delivery, and Click & Collect.
• Clear icons to show different types of orders, and logos showing the app they came from.
• Filters to display specific order types such as delivery or click & collect.
• Communicates order statuses back to your guests on the ordering app.
• Use filters to view orders by consumption mode.

Management tools at your fingertips

All settings and adjustments for your Kitchen Display System are easily accessible at the touch of a button, giving you the tools needed to adapt the setup straight from your Kobas Cloud account within the dedicated KDS Build Manager.

Hardware that can handle the heat

Choosing the best-suited hardware for your software is crucial. Certain touchscreens may get too hot if placed in certain areas of a kitchen, and greasy! That’s why we partner with leading hardware suppliers to provide durable and high-performing options including touchscreens that can be mounted on walls or poles, or screens with bump bar controls.

Beyond this, our team will always consult with you and your team on your KDS vision and plan to ensure the best-suited hardware is chosen for the desired area of the kitchen.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Kitchen Display System (KDS) is a hospitality-developed software solution that allows teams to electronically view and manage incoming orders across their venue. Another term for this is a Kitchen Management System (KMS). The term “kitchen” is used for this product; however, systems like ours often have the flexibility to be used across other preparation areas such as the bar.

The Kobas KDS cannot be deployed as a standalone platform or integrated with another EPoS system. If you want to move forward with the use of a Kobas system including our EPoS, then we can arrange the deployment of Kitchen Display System too. This includes planning your setup with you, training, and hardware configuration on-site. Every client of ours receives ongoing support which can be used for all areas of Kobas – KDS included.

The price of a Kitchen Display System can vary. The Kobas KDS is just £30 per month, per venue. This means you can utilise as many devices across your business, without any cost increases.

This excludes one-off hardware costs, however we have a selection of cost-effective options available to ensure this product can work for different budgets and operational styles.
