What do I do if the YUMBI GSM printer is not working?

Every restaurant registered on the YUMBI platform must have a YUMBI GSM Printer on the premises. This printer serves as a critical backup in situations where there is an integration with a POS system but communication between YUMBI and the POS fails. For restaurants without POS integration, the GSM printer becomes the essential device for receiving orders, acting as the primary mode of communication for both StoreFront and Switchboard orders.
