Project Description

We are an IT startup serving the restaurant and mobile food industry looking for a developer to help us code our own POS system. It will be a cloud based hosted system running on mySQL and coded in PHP (preferably, but if your expertise is other, please let us know) with an Android based APP as a Front end for food orders.

We are in the stage of determining how much budget we need for the project, the project will be awarded by the end of October 2012. The POS system will not need to have alot of bells and whistles for the first version... we have a list of requirements below.

This is potentially a long term contract of a few months to develop it and then to follow up with bug fixes for at least a few months after real life deployment. Eventually, we would take over the code and have our own local developers do tech support.


Most of our clients are mobile food vendors with NO Internet access- A key component of our POS system is that it must be able to run in "Offline mode" with the ability to upload at night when the owner takes the tablet home to an internet connection.

All Restaurants would use same hosted database, but have different table Prefix to distinguish them.
