iPad Menu and Ordering System (POS for restaurant)


1. The app need to work within 1 local network (communicate through WiFi network).

2. This is an ordering system for restaurant. There will be one iPad acting as a server within the local network, where all the information is stored, and the rest of the iPads or possibly iPod touch will talk to this iPad.

3. The information stored in the server iPad will be synchronised with an online server where a web based system will be used to pull up the data (if you are not an expertise in website development, this part can be omitted, but I need the infrastructure to be ready to synchronise with an online server.

4 main interfaces:

1. For Waiters (this will be an iPod touch). The purpose for this interface is to checking in or out customers

a. Waiter should be able to see the list of available and unavailable tables

b. When clicking on the table number, the waiter can check the customer in or out (checkout - get the bill).

c. should be able to enter the number of people sitting on the table

d. can indicate whether the customer has discount voucher or not (Yes/No button)

e. can transfer customer from one table to another (this will bring along all active orders in any).

f. When a customer call the waiter, there should be some sort of notification appears (flashing icon may be)

g. When the flashing on the table number is clicked (the flashing should stop)

2. For Customers (this will be an iPad - one for each table - will need to be associated with the table number)

a. Customers can start using the app only after the waiter check them in

b. The app should stay open.

c. The interface will contains menu - menu category on the left

d. Each dish will have 1 photo with description. When the thumbnail is clicked, a larger version of the image will be displayed.

e. customer can put the number of items and place the order.

f. Each dish can have 1 category

g. button to call a waiter

h. button to checkout

i. a button to see all items in the order

j. the ability to cancel items

3. For Chefs (Kitchen) (iPad)

a. a list of order item as it came through

b. can click on start preparing and then mark it as ready

c. It will be good to have an option to put an estimated cooking time (can be added later)

4. Admin interface (highest access level)

a. allow user to add table and number of seats

b. allow user to add new menu (category, upload images, price)

c. view individual order of individual tables

d. cancel individual item on an order

e. check customer in or out just like what the Waiters can do

There is another interface which is the web interface, please let me know if this cannot be done.

The web interface basically connect to the database on an online server and can talk to the iPad. Well, the iPad is the one that pushing data to the live server.

However, the local network should be enough to get the system running. If for some reason, the restaurant lost its internet connection, the data will still be stored locally on the iPad acting as the server and will only then be synched with the website once the internet is back up.

The web interface should:

1. Should allow user to do the same functions as the iPad Admin interface

2. However, if the budget doesn't allow and we need to cut the cost, I only need the web interface to do all the read actions, no need to be able to push action back to the iPad.

I will also need a manual to setup and test the system.

Please give me a quote in term of price and time frame.

It'll be good if you can show me some portfolio.

I need the system to be developed ASAP.

The project will need to be completed in 30 days.

When responding, please give me a feedback on my proposed system.
I'm not an expert in iPad app environment, so I really want to know if the system design I'm proposing is best to suit the objective of my application.

My main concern is
1. I want the system to be easily installed therefore, I think iPad app is the way to go.
2. I want the system to keep running even though there is no Internet
3. I want the system will then be synchronised with an online system as a backup and to allow the owner to monitor the restaurant from distance.

Please give me a comment or suggestion on the above three items in response to my proposed system architecture.
