A digital menu board is a menu that’s displayed electronically through a television or monitor. There are many components of a successful digital menu, from choosing the best hardware and installing it to picking the right software and design.

What is digital menu software?

Digital menu software is the program that runs on your computer which allows you to control and edit your screen.

  • Ease of use – Change your menu text, images, and design with the click of a button.
  • Up-to-date content – Outdated menu items can be updated quickly and easily, cutting down ordering times, waiting lines, and the need for staff to explain menu content.
