Overall app FAQs


  • Overview of app functionality
  • Why participate in mobile order ahead?
    • Drive activity during low periods of traffic — We can offer time-sensitive or limited supply promotions to tenants through the program. HqO can help subsidize promotions. We are also able to send targeted push notifications to tenants.
    • Build loyalty with office tenants — Tenants will be able to order and pay through the app so they can skip the line when picking up. We are also able to deposit in-app wallet money into tenants’ apps so they are incentivized to order ahead.
    • Increase multi-sales — Online orders are generally ~20% larger than in-person ones.
  • What is Speedetab?
    • Speedetab is the third party who provides the “order ahead” functionality for your building’s app

Menu set-up FAQs

  • iPad POS
    • General Questions
      • I have not received my iPad
      • How do I use my iPad?
      • How do I set up a printer?
      • Is it possible to route orders to different “prep” stations?
        • Your options will be the following, have an iPad at each station however, all orders will come through. Alternatively, set up each “station” as a separate location so specific orders will be routed to the correct station.
      • How should I consolidate orders at the end of day?
        • We recommend talking to your POS provider to figure out the best way to manage this program based on your goals. If it’s crucial to track all orders that come in for your records, it might be best to process the orders that come in through the iPad as a $0.00 charge through your POS. If you’d prefer to keep the mobile ordering iPad separate from your POS, you may choose to simply print orders directly from the iPad instead of going through your POS.

      • How do I edit my menu?
        • Through the SpeedETab merchant portal, you will be able to add and remove menu items and see order analytics. HqO manages changing the hours of operation in our back end, so let us know if you’d like to make a change. We can also help add/remove menu items as needed.
