Zonal Table Management Workshop

Our Table Management Workshop is a comprehensive, full day course, held in-house at your business or at one of our sites in Edinburgh or Oxfordshire (see our offices) with one of our LPI accredited trainers.

By the end of this Table Management Workshop you will be able to demonstrate knowledge of editing turn times, capacity and table joins, as well as managing table reservations, waitlists and how to maximise capacity. At the end of each section you will have a measurement activity to ensure you have fully understood the course content and successfully gained experience on using the liveRES Tables system. We can also will be on-hand to make any amendments to the initial configuration should we find you need it.
