The Order Ahead Manager is the back office component of the Order Ahead platform. This is where you configure your Order Ahead account and web app. Adjust available locations and hours, customize your Order Ahead design and create pick-up instructions for your customers. What your customers see on your Order Ahead web app is configured from the Order Ahead Manager.
