This article describes how to configure the “order placement” integration to Lightspeed iKentoo (POS).

How the integration works

The integration allows the sommelier or waiter to place a wine order directly from the COENA application (an active Internet connection on the iPad is required to place an order). The execution of a wine order in COENA triggers the appearance of the wine item on the table selected in iKentoo. It is worth noting that it is not necessary to keep a current wine list in iKentoo, since the main source for the wine list will always be present and updated in COENA.

Step 1: Setting up Lightspeed iKentoo

  • Adding a new article/item:
    name: COENA_WINE
    sku/id: COENA_WINE_CODE
    This article will link the wines ordered in COENA to Lightspeed iKentoo
  • Activate the takeout/API mode in iKentoo.
    and update the access rights for the iKentoo user: (one of the ROLE_BO_WRITE or ROLE_ODATA_READ roles is mandatory)
    For this step, it may be necessary to call iKentoo support.

 

Step 2: Connect COENA to iKentoo

This connection must be established for each iPad that is to be used as an order entry.

  • In the COENA administration interface, under “my account”, press the “iKentoo configuration” button.
