The Silver Plan
The Silver Plan includes everything within the Basic and Bronze Plans, with the added functionality of:
Accepting orders attributed to courses
With the Bronze Plan, servers make assumptions as to when items should be served. As an example, it would be reasonable for the waiter to assume that any item selected from the Starters section of the menu should be served at the start. But it's not uncommon for guests to choose a starter or salad as a main course. The Silver Plan handles this matter seamlessly, enabling guests to indicate in which course each item should be served. This way, the server will get the full information and ensure items are served in the correct sequence.
Controlling who can place orders
In most cases, all members of a party would want and should be able to select and order items. However, there will be occasions where this may not be appropriate. For example, parents may be happy for their children to view the menu but would want to do the ordering for them. With the Silver Plan, restaurants can provide parties with that level of control. In particular, one person in the party can control who else can do ordering.
Splitting of the Bill
The Bronze Plan allows a guest to transfer the bill to another (consenting) guest in the party. But the Silver Plan goes further. It enables the bill for a table to be split into equal parts – payable by certain members of the party.
