Aloha Takeout has the ability to print item labels to attach to takeout packaging. Aloha Takeout labels include customer, item, order, total, and payment information. Labels make it easy to identify the packaging contents without opening the box and letting heat in or out. Labels also help drivers pull the correct items from a delivery bag to give a customer their entire order. You can define labels to print by category and by order mode.
Reference: Refer to the Aloha Takeout Label Printing Feature Focus Guide - HKS369.
