Keep your customers’ menu with Leon’s catering notes

Catering is a multi-billion dollar industry, which reflects how we approach our clients’ needs for food and drink. This is especially true if your clients are luxury travellers, and request bespoke meals and delivering standard meals is not an option. As you might know, their tastes are diverse, resulting in menus that are unique to each passenger.

To leverage Leon Software for catering, all you need to do is make sure all the catering preferences of your clients are in the system. Once you have saved that data, you can then make a list of the best caterers. From then on, ordering meals becomes a breeze. Let’s explore how to do this.

Build your customer preferences database

 Information is today’s “digital” gold. The more information you have, organised well and available on-demand, the faster and better quality decisions you can make. Utilising Leon for catering, you will benefit from all the information that you saved from previous flights, as well as the notes that have been added to your passenger phonebook. If you have the same person booking a flight again, you will be able to access notes stored previously. These notes for catering include what customers like to eat, drinks options, dislikes and more.

Order from your favourite caterer

Another important step is to add your favourite caterers for ordering those bespoke meals. Decide on the meals you would like to offer your clients, based on their catering notes or new requests. You might even have some preferred caterers in mind already. Just make sure that the catering company fits your clients’ needs, and is near or at the airport where your aircraft is based. Such companies usually already have permission to enter the airport grounds and deliver your order.

Make sure you fill out all the details required. All the flight information needed to fulfil the order will be pulled from the system automatically.

After setting up the caterer of your choice, you will see them listed in the catering suppliers drop down for the airport where the aircraft is based.
