Our aim is to develop an iPhone/smartphone program that allows users to process orders in a café/restaurant environment with ease using their smartphones. The application is designed to act like a waiter in a café/restaurant setting.
The application needs to work in cohesion with a system that will receive the orders, placed in the café’s kitchen and bar. This could take the form of a company website, whereby the various cafes can log in to view the tables and their orders or a computer program which either prints or displays customer orders. It could also be an Ipad app or Software Program It is up to you!!! we love creativity and are happy for you to woke with us and offer your ideas. You will be rewarded!
The application MUST BE GENERIC meaning that many different cafes can add their menus to the app however users only need to download the one application. Once the App and software is developed we want to have minimal impact in its maintainance given full access to cafe owners to change their menu, update prices and so on.....
*See our rough outline below
The system would also benefit from the ability for customers to pay for their orders via the app. Credit Card details can be processed and sent to the receiver system. Consider also, the opportunity to print a receipt.
Cafes and restaurants will be encouraged to provide free wireless Internet access for their customers allowing for faster application access and separate customer enticement due the availability of wireless access. Companies that were originally reluctant to provide this service can now see additional benefits.
Below is a suggested outline of the app however freedom is available we want to work with you to develop an awesome App/System!
Proposed design for the program (excluding receiver system).
A ‘check in’ page where the location system discerns which café you are at. This would involve entering your table number. To disallow users to misuse the system, the check in should only be allowed if their phone location device places them within the café. Thus, this table is now active in the café’s system.
The menu appears, ranging from breakfast to dinner and especially crafted based on the cafes menu. The user can scroll down the page, going through all the possibilities, and then ticking the box (or an ‘add’ button) next to the items they want to order.
If the user is to click on a particular item it should then transfer them to a screen where information about this item is provided, including, should the café choose to incorporate, dietary specifications, a description or an image of the item. On this page there should be a ‘back’ selection so once the user has read the information they can then return to the original menu screen.
Once the user has ticked all the items they wish to purchase, they can then click on a button in the top right hand corner of the page, entitled ‘confirm order’.
Once the user has elected to confirm their order, a new page should appear listing all the items they have selected, providing individual and total prices, and enabling them to delete items they do not wish to purchase. In order to add more items the user only need click back in the top left hand corner and this will take them back to the menu page so they can elect more choices. This should not wipe the original ticked selections. Once the user is happy with their selections, down the bottom of the page that lists their selections and a total price there should be a ‘confirm’ button. This then sends the material to the receiving point and allowing café staff to bring the items to their table.
Once the user has confirmed their original selections, this should not close the application as the user may wish to order more products, and also pay via credit card. Hence they should be redirected to a page that confirms their order has been sent, and then gives them 3 options:
