Moroccan Shawarma in EkaterinburgMoroccan Shawarma is a chain of street food kiosks opened in 2015 in Ekaterinburg. Though the name of the chain suggests exotica, the owners are more concerned with the visibility and appeal of the brand: the eye-catching signboards with giant shawarmas on top are hard not to notice! These days, Moroccan Shawarma is probably the best shawarma in Ekaterinburg — or at the very least, the most popular one. This autumn, as part of the automation of the chain, they started using Tillydroid, Tillypad-based solution for handhelds.

Tillypad at the 'Bread and Games' Forum in KazakhstanThis autumn, from 15 to 17 September, 'Bread and Games' Forum has been held at VILLA Boutiques & Restaurants in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

The opening ceremony of GALA took place on 28 June, 2017 and was honoured with the presence of the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow. Located in a scenic ravine, GALA blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape of the Kopet Dagh, the mountain range on the frontier between Turkmenistan and Iran. Inspired by the historical and cultural legacy of the Central Asia, the architects of the project designed the building in the medieval style: it resembles an ancient citadel surrounded by the defensive wall from the three sides.

Tillypad in Dom Kultury, ChelyabinskShisha lounge Dom Kultury is one of the first venues of such type that had been opened in Chelyabinsk long before hookahs became a fashionable and popular trend. This cosy lounge bar is located in the very heart of the city, but in spite of its proximity to the local Main Street, university campuses and parks, one can seldom meet a passer-by who came here by chance. No signboard and black glass doors add to the privacy of the place: you can find out about it only by word of mouth or through social networks.
Two completely different Tillypad customers in MoscowThis spring, Optimal Soft, Tillypad’s official representative in Moscow, completed automation of two venues with virtually different concepts: a family and kid friendly restaurant Matreshka, and a vibrant karaoke night-club Shmeli. Here are the stories of these two projects.
At the famous Magpie Café in YorkshireThe Magpie Café is a world famous fish and chip restaurant housed in a distinctive black and white building overlooking the harbour in the picturesque and historic port of Whitby. The dining room commands excellent views of the harbour, Abbey and St. Mary's Church. The Magpie Café has a long association with fishing and the shipping industry. It was built in 1750 as a Merchants House and during its history was for a time the pilotage where the pilots would wait for orders to bring vessels into the harbour. Long queues of eager customers waiting for a table at The Magpie are a common sight on the harbour side, laying testament to the quality of food on offer. In the busy summer months the restaurant is visited by more than a thousand customers every day.
Bar&cafe ‘The Bach’, LipetskThe Bach is a great co-working place and chill-out lounge for the artists of Lipetsk, Russia. Its concept vision is based on modern art represented in the ambiance, people and interior design. The Bach inspires to meditate and create.

Its classic character is emphasized through symphonic music played in the bar and the 18th century fashion clothing worn by waiters and barmen.
One-legged Ostrich — now with TillypadIn 2012, we wrote about our customer in Chelyabinsk, Russia—the Drunken Ostrich. Over five years ago, Tillypad helped to implement the BeerCount technology, which allows to dispense beer directly to the tables through special beer pipes. Recently, thanks to our partner PROXY SERVICE Ural, we have learned that in addition to the Drunken Ostrich, there's now also the One-legged Ostrich in the area. For the last five years, the One-legged Ostrich has been a must-visit in Chebarkul, a town near Chelyabinsk.
Tillypad in Biblioteka in LipetskThe restobar Biblioteka No 1 has a rich selection of food and drinks. Both the menu and the interior design represent timeless classics on one side and fantasy and an endless search for perfection on the other side. Previously, the restobar had been working on a different hospitality management system. They often run into difficulties with it: there was no way to get exact information about the cost price of dishes: according to the employees, the reports used to contain incomprehensible numbers, and other unpleasant errors used to appear frequently. In spring 2017, Tillypad became their unconditional choice.
Tillypad in SamaraIn April, our partner Toller has automated a cafe called 'Oil-painting' with Tillypad. The owner has played around with the name of the cafe when creating the interior design. When guests come in, they see an 'art gallery' where French cuisine is served.
Yastva delivers with TillypadIn the end of 2016, the Yastva delivery service finished its migration to Tillypad. Tillypad now ensures smooth operation of all their business processes.

Keeping a business in the highly competitive market of the megalopolis is not an easy task. The success of Yastva is based on their system approach to all processes and constant monitoring of new trends in technology, customer service and marketing. Implementation of Tillypad has impacted all of these aspects.

MultiPhone — a solution for delivery centresCall centres can simultaneously receive delivery orders for multiple restaurants that are not necessarily united by the same concept.

Why does your restaurant need a kitchen display?Each hospitality professional understands that the service quality, i.e. food quality, staff competence and service speed, impact customers' loyalty. The last factor is especially important in fast food restaurants. Here, the service speed depends not only on the employees' fleet-footedness but also on how well production processes are organised, on the speed with which orders are sent to the kitchen and on the technologies that help automate these processes. Kitchen display is one of these technologies.
Eight years, eight venuesGerkules, a Kaliningrad's holding company combining eight different venues, has been working with Tillypad for eight years.

Tillypad in most heartwarming restaurantIn February, a new restaurant, Rodnya ('Kinfolk' in Russian), opened on the main pedestrian street of Chelyabinsk.

In one of the world's most northern clubsOne of the world's most northern cities, Norilsk, has a ruthless drawn-out winter, long polar days and a bright midnight sun. The harsh arctic climate and sunny summer nights have made clubbing one of the most popular entertainments. Club One is different from other dance floors in Norilsk — it only starts getting empty around midday thanks to its singular mind-blowing and crowd-gathering afterparties.
In the first craft beer pub in ChelyabinskDouble L does not have a regular bar list: new sorts of beers appear on and disappear from the chalkboard, while the chef keeps experimenting with the menu. This approach is profitable and easy to use: Tillypad reports read by the management of the company at the end of each week help determine the most marginal items and the most popular combination of items. In most cases, the 'dish/drink' pairs match those recommended by barmen: In Double L, guests can not only learn about the singular characteristics of a given beer and the beer culture of its country of origins, but also ask for recommendations and get dishes that go best with this particular beer.
Tillypad has lit up the New StarAlong with a change of management, Tillypad's upgrade has become an integral part of the complex modernisation of the hotel infrastructure. The program's update in the hotel's restaurant and lobby bar has not only presented New Star with the opportunities that its "little brother", City Star hotel, had from its first day, but has also significantly facilitated its business processes and accounting. The management first familiarised themselves with the new version of Tillypad in City Star, after which their decision to uniformise and synchronise the two versions of the program became irrevocable.
To the envy of all: Chelyabinsk's Envy works with TillypadA short menu and a small dining room are offset by a long wine list, as well as unusual dishes and rare wines.

Sitting by the open kitchen, they can watch the preparation of their food and cocktails.
Two cafes — one TillypadSoftAlyans Company has automated two cafes in Zheleznodorozhny, a suburb of Moscow.

A supermarket chain is now working with TillypadShugyla, a minimarket chain in the South East of Kazakhstan, has been automated with Tillypad. Soft Park, Tillypad's dealer in Kazakhstan, has integrated two stores located in different towns into a single chain and synchronised data on one server.
Updated Tillypad in the centre of MoscowYou would think that finding an affordable and cosy cafe where you can quietly read a book in the very centre of Moscow is close to impossible. However, such a cafe has been open for seven years and has been operating on Tillypad since its first day. Coffee Cherry on Tverskaya Street has a relaxed and laid-back ambience that is so rarely found in Moscow's usual rush and buzz. For this small-sized cafe, one POS terminal proved to be more than sufficient, especially since the update of Tillypad has made the customer service in Coffee Cherry even faster.
Tillypad in MoscafeSeven years after its opening, Moscafe, a legendary restaurant in Moscow, has updated Tillypad and complemented the classic equipment with new mobile devices. The new technological solutions, such as the use of tablets, are a nice add-on for the general ambience of Moscafe where the fashionable interior design and gastronomic polish set the guests for an unforgettable evening.

Tillypad in Afimall CityAfimall City is a large shopping mall in Moscow, and Tillypad is now used in its newest fast food restaurant, One Dim Sum. The baseline concept behind One Dim Sum is that of the haute Pan-Asian cuisine. However, the owners have adapted this concept to the healthy fast food format and turned steamed dumplings, dim sums and rolls into casual food. Tillypad's Fast Food mode turned out to be a smart solution for this restaurant frequented by the employees of the nearby Moscow City business centre and the visitors and staff of the shopping mall.
Tillypad in the space capitalSoft Alliance Company has automated the Baraban bar in Korolyov, a suburb of Moscow, well-known as the cradle of Soviet and Russian space exploration. The bar was overbooked not just on the opening day but also the following weekend, and Baraban's management decided to implement a deposit system to be able to predict the bar occupancy rate in the future.

Tillypad has united the capitals of KazakhstanTillypad helps serve the guests, keep records and monitor the development dynamics of two burger stations located in two largest cities of Kazakhstan: in Astana, the capital of the country, and in Almaty, Kazakhstan's ex-capital.

Tillypad at the birthplace of Britain’s filmsIn October, a new bright, spacious Italian restaurant opened its doors in Greater London. Thanks to Tillypad, communication among waiters, the two cooking preparation areas and the bar is smooth and straightforward. After guests choose their drinks, waiters immediately send these orders to the bar from their handhelds and continue taking customers’ dish orders and adding them to the open guest tab. Orders for food are then sent to the cook or pizza chef automatically. Once waiters finish taking a table’s order, they can proceed straight to the bar, where the drinks they submitted only moments ago already await them.
Amici, a real Italian restaurant in YorkshireIn the Northern English town of Keighley, Amici Ristorante, one of the best Italian restaurants in West Yorkshire, has switched to Tillypad.

Tillypad in the heart of Nizhny NovgorodOctober saw the opening of De Kas, a large European restaurant in the city centre of Nizhny Novgorod, an important economic, transportation and cultural centre approximately 400 km east of Moscow.

Tillypad at the service of BUREAUIn September, iconic St. Petersburg street food chain BUREAU opened the doors of its long-awaited third location. Like its first two burger bars, the new location operates using Tillypad. The system was chosen and installed when the first venue was launched, and to this day, Tillypad assists the bar in upholding its high standards and continuing its successful development. Fast, smooth customer service and elegant tools for quickly evaluating new menu items help the restaurant chain to consistently diversify its menu and systematically 'take hold of' St. Petersburg’s central districts.
Tender, juicy chicken with a side of TillypadAST (which in Turkmen stands for 'very juicy chicken'), a fast food restaurant chain with three locations in Ashgabat, has replaced its previous automation system with Tillypad. A trial conversion to Tillypad was carried out along with the opening of its second restaurant. Later, when the concept was expanded to a third location, Tillypad's Turkmenistan dealer Akmurad Annageldyev proposed merging all the AST restaurants into a single chain. AST’s owners were impressed by the chain management options available through Tillypad and decided to set up administration of their restaurants from a central office.
A new open self-service concept in IvanovoTillypad has helped 'transform' yet another cosy cafe. Boulevard, a homestyle restaurant in Ivanovo, has made the switch from an 'evening' a la carte format to the more affordable open-plan self-service style. Over the past five years, a concept known as 'free flow '— a self-service dining format in which guests move among several food stations in an open area — has gained popularity in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Now, thanks to Tillypad, this casual format has reached even the 'city of brides', Ivanovo. The concept offers several obvious advantages — it is no coincidence that it has become a favourite among those who want even their work lunches to taste like homecooked meals, in addition to being balanced, affordable and easy to eat quickly.
Tillypad at PIR Expo. Taking stockPIR Expo, Russia's largest and best-attended hospitality industry event, was held in Moscow for the eighteenth time from 4 to 8 October. During the exhibition, the Tillypad team performed dozens of demonstrations of the new Android mobile application and presented the accounting capabilities, improved analytics and stock control and personnel management options available from a POS terminal or computer. We are very pleased to have connected with everyone who stopped by our stand — both longstanding dealers and clients and restaurant representatives whom we met for the first time at the exhibition.

Tillypad at Loft Project ETAGIWhen choosing from the hospitality management systems available on the market, Sever’s owners paid particular attention to the implementation speed, trade-off between price and quality and recommended system requirements of each program. Sever’s system also needed to be reliable and user-friendly. Tillypad proved to be most advantageous from these and other perspectives. The Elf-M Company installed and configured Tillypad at Sever in a single day. On the very next day, Sever’s employees were trained to use the program, and by that night, they had already started serving guests using the new software.
Tillypad at Russian Feast: cutting-edge technologies keep watch over traditionsRussian Feast, a welcoming restaurant-museum in the popular St. Petersburg suburb of Pushkin, has been automated with Tillypad.

Today, Tillypad is the only customised hospitality management software offering these unique features.
Service in the bill: to include or not to include?In Tillypad, service charges can be entered as a percentage (the program will automatically calculate the charge as a proportion of the guest tab total) or a fixed amount. Restaurateurs can decide which option is more economically sound for their business. A fixed amount or percentage can easily be set up in the system, and the 'Service charge' line will be automatically added to the bill.

Perfect your menu with the new ABC reportOften, you need to look at a menu item from several different perspectives to determine its value for your restaurant. For example, a popular sushi roll might constitute up to 10% of a sushi bar’s sales but bring in negligible profits due to its high self cost and low markup. Should a menu include dishes that are very popular but have low margins? Should dishes that sell rarely but generate a strong profit be eliminated? You can find the answers to these and other questions by using the well-known ABC analysis method.

Tillypad XL and interactive service in the ‘Ocean’On 20 July, Turkmenistan’s largest city, Ashgabat, saw the opening of Ocean, a new restaurant that has been automated with Tillypad XL. One of the major goals Ocean's owners have is to make guests as comfortable as possible. They believe that guests must have the most clear and up-to-date information and should not be inconvenienced by having to look around or wait for the waiter. With this thought in mind, Ocean’s automation included the installation of top-of-the-line technologies.
The largest fitness centre in Ashgabat now uses Tillypad XLIn June 2015, Tillypad XL was used to automate the Lotus fitness club in Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan.

Tillypad XL in The Vine, one of Britain's first eno-gastro pubsIn the beginning of July, Tillypad UK completed the automation of The Vine, a gastropub located in historic Great Bardfield, just 30 miles away from London.

The proprietors receive reports showing the hours worked by the cooks, waiters and barmen — with this information, running payroll is a cinch.

Tillypad XL reports have already shown that the use of discount cards at Chachir has increased the likelihood that customers will come back, while other promotions (such as free desserts, gifts with orders over a certain amount, and ‘buy two cocktails, get one free’ promos) increase average bill totals and, accordingly, general revenue.

Make sure your restaurant is always full: 5 ideas from TillypadWhen city news and social media outlets publish weekly updates with new venues, each of which has its own unique ‘personality’, restaurateurs have an increasingly difficult time combatting customer attrition.

New reports in Tillypad XLTillypad XL offers users all the reports they need for smooth operation, from employee timesheets to complex financial documentation.

Find exactly what you're looking forIn restaurant chains with extensive menus, it is often difficult to find a specific item. Keeping in mind common issues faced by users of Tillypad XL, the software's developers have improved the search and filter mechanisms in its tree-structured directories. When the system displays the smallest possible data set, you avoid the distraction of unnecessary information and can focus on what's important. Save time by viewing, collecting and analysing only the information you need.
Manage your data with Tillypad XLWhen you need to make a decision, you want the most up-to-date and reliable information. The data that inform your important choices should always be at your fingertips. Tillypad XL users can choose from different update modes and determine which data should always be updated immediately, even during peak system usage, and which documents can wait until the restaurant is less busy.
Your team — ready for work in a snapManagers of restaurants automated with Tillypad XL know how easy it is to keep track of employees’ hours when everyone clocks in and out on the POS terminal. It's very simple: when employees arrive to and leave work, they simply press the Log hours button displayed on the screensaver and select their names from the list. Tillypad XL's interface is so user-friendly that even employees whose job descriptions do not include a lot of contact with the software (e.g. cleaning staff) have an easy time with this procedure.

Set up automatic substitution to make up for stock item shortages in sales recordsYour accountant probably often finds that when a sales record is run on your store, the current stock on hand does not cover the actual usage of a specific stock item. There can be many reasons for this. For example, if your chef runs out of a stock item while preparing a dish, he/she might decide to replace it with a similar item. Or, maybe your stock-in records contain errors. No matter the cause, the result is that the real stock item volume differs from the amount specified in the store records.
