New Feature: Weight Scale

December 8, 2023

Are you still manually weighing dishes and inputting weights into the restaurant computer?

Are you frantically recording dish weights while facing anxious customers waiting?

Did you know that you can use a weight scale that syncs dish weights directly to the POS system without any additional operations?

Chowbus introduces a weight scale feature - the weight of dishes on the weight scale is displayed directly in the POS system, allowing you to accept the weight with one click for checkout.


Benefits of Chowbus weight scale

Weighs Faster

Place the dish on the weight scale, and the POS App interface immediately shows the dish weight.

Weighs More Accurately

The weight of the dish is calculated accurately and automatically displayed in the POS system, avoiding manual input errors.

Saves Time

The waiter selects the priced dish in the POS system, places the dish to be weighed, clicks "Accept Weight," and then adds it to the cart and sends it to the kitchen, with no extra operations required, simplifying the overall process.

How to Use the Chowbus Weight scale?

The process of using the Chowbus weight scale is straightforward. Let's demonstrate using a malatang restaurant as an example:

1. The waiter places the dish bowl on the scale for weighing.

2. After selecting basic information like dine-in and number of people, the waiter chooses the soup base.


3. The POS App displays the dish weight, and the waiter clicks "Accept Weight."


4. If there is a customer display screen, it will show information like flavor and weight for customer confirmation.

5. After the customer confirms, click "Send"  to Kitchen. 


Successful Cases: Zhang Liang Malatang

Zhang Liang Malatang in Chicago has been using the Chowbus weight scale for several weeks. They report that the Chowbus weight scale is stable and accurate, helping them speed up the overall weighing and kitchen process.


Zhang Liang Malatang uses wristband number tags to identify different customers' hot pots and wristband colors to recognize different flavors.

The Chowbus menu team customized a menu for Zhang Liang Malatang, where each number represents a dish.

After weighing the dish, the waiter selects the corresponding number tag in the POS App, accepts the weight, and sends it to the kitchen, which is convenient and quick.

Chowbus weight scales can help restaurants that use priced dishes to speed up the weighing process and improve accuracy. Contact your account manager or salesperson to upgrade your restaurant today!
