Lavu Kitchen Display System (KDS) Pro

KDS Pro is a fully featured kitchen display system. KDS Pro allows you to display up to 18 tickets at a time on any display with an HDMI input, controlled by either a traditional bump bar or our state of the are iPad control.

Lavu KDS Pro is everything restaurants are looking for in a kitchen display system. It’s been crafted to provide the information that’s needed without sacrificing form or function.

What is it?

Lavu KDS Pro is the most complete kitchen display system designed to work exclusively with the Lavu iPad POS system. Send order tickets from any iOS device runningPOSLavu Client and receive them at any KDS Pro station. The Lavu KDS Pro sets itself apart from the existing KDS Lavu in that it is not an iOS native application. The KDS Lavuapplication running on an iPad is inherently limited by the size of the screen. In our experience, the small iPad screen tends not to be large enough for the average kitchen to effectively manage many orders at one time. As a result, Lavu developed Lavu KDS Pro to broadcast kitchen tickets onto any size monitor with an HDMI connection. Paired with a heavy duty bump bar control, Lavu KDS Pro enables you to completely manage your active and inactive order tickets easily and efficiently.
