      • Focus: Menuboard Manager is specifically designed for restaurant digital menu boards with mass menu rollout features, dynamic prices, direct PoS integrations, while Yodeck offers a wider range of digital signage solutions, including menu boards.

      • Design tools: While Yodeck provides built-in design tools to create visually appealing menus, with Menuboard Manager you simply use your favorite design software and then easily upload your designs to the content management system..

      • Integrations: Yodeck integrates with more third-party applications using Zapier, a third party integration platform at additional cost, while Menuboard Manager directly integrates with PoS systems via APs, which is much faster and provides real-time order confirmation

      • Additional features: Yodeck offers a wider range of additional features beyond just menu boards.

    Which one is right for you?

    Choose Menuboard Manager if:


        • You’re a restaurant that needs a solution for creating and managing digital menus at scale.

        • You want responsive support

        • You use Toast, PAR Brink Northstar, Qu, Aloha, Micros PoS systems for direct integrations

      Choose Spectrio if:


          • You want a digital signage solution that goes beyond menu boards.

          • You need advanced design tools and Zapier integrations meet your requirements.

          • You’re willing to use knowledgebase and email support meets your expectations.

        Ultimately, the best choice for you will depend on your specific needs and budget. I recommend trying the free trials of both platforms to see which one you prefer.

        Here are some additional factors to consider:


            • Ease of use: Both platforms are relatively easy to use, but Yodeck might be slightly more intuitive for beginners.

            • Customer support: Both platforms offer customer support, but Menuboard Manager’s support team is based in Texas and offers faster response times.

            • Security: Both platforms take security seriously, but it’s always a good idea to do your own research.

          I hope this information helps!
