Menu Creator Coming Soon!

Posted: 28th June 2016

After 12 months of development and user testing, Menu Creator Version 2.0 is almost ready to launch and we are very excited!

A year ago we realised that the original Menu Creator software was getting a bit long in the tooth. It was no longer the cutting edge tool it once was when originally developed in 2009. Software has dramatically changed over the last 7 years and our users expected a much wider range of functionality and an easier to use interface.

After extensive consultation with a large number of our existing users we had created a list of 10 functionality “Must Haves” in addition to the new features we wanted to include. Our goal was to create software that allowed a salesperson to create a professional quality menu design in less than 5 minutes. Therefore, an easy to use interface was critical. We enlisted the services of one of Scotland’s best UX/UI designers to create an interface and experience that users would enjoy. Throughout the design process we asked for feedback from existing users and have been continuously refining and improving the user interface to ensure that it meets their needs.

It’s always a bit scary releasing new software to test users which you have worked so hard to create as you have no idea how they will react.
However, we needn’t have worried as the feedback so far from the test users have been very positive.

“Loving the new look, feel and functionality”

“It appears very straight forward and importantly quick. I did a simple wine list from start to finish in a few minutes. Compared to the web version it is much quicker.”

“Just had a quick play with the new Menu Maker app. Created 2 lists, 1 beer and 1 wine in only a few minutes which is excellent.”

Menu Maker launches with our existing customers in July and will be open to new customers in August.
