An Online Food Ordering App

In today’s world, people are always on the move and have less to no time to stop and spend time for food or drinks. People prefer to get things done on the go, while they are travelling to work or coming home from work. There needs to be a solution which allows people to pick the items from a restaurant and place an order for the same. With this objective in mind, the client set out to search for an IT firm which would help them build the product as they have envisioned. This is where we came into picture. We helped them build a simple solution in terms of both iOS and Android apps where people can go and place orders and a website for the Restaurant owners to upload and update their menu items along with their prices.

  • Allow the end users to go through the list of restaurants according to their current location on the iOS and Android apps.
  • Allow the end users to browse the menu for each of the restaurant and select the items that they want to place order for.
  • Allow the end users to select the pickup time for picking up the order from the restaurant.
  • Allow the restaurant owners to create their own menu, set the price of the items and add the working hours of the restaurant.
  • Allow the staff of the restaurant owners to use an Android tablet app to view the incoming orders placed by the users, accept or reject those orders and making sure those orders are prepared within the pickup set by the end user.
  • Considering the requirements of the product, we built a database architecture which could allow the restaurant owners to create multiple categories and add multiple items under each category.
  • For the restaurant owners, we built a website which enabled them to:
    • Add and update categories
    • Add and update items under each category
    • Set the preparation time for each category
    • Set the price for each item
    • Set the opening and closing hours of the restaurant
    • View the list of all the orders placed till date.
  • For the staff of the restaurant owners, we built an Android Tablet app which enabled them to:
    • View all the orders placed by the end users
    • Accept or reject the orders.
    • If rejected, provide the reason for rejection
    • Make any item unavailable if it is out of stock
    • Mark the store as closed
  • For the end user, we built iOS and Android apps which enabled them to:
    • View the list of all the restaurants sorted by their current location
    • View all the items available for a restaurant
    • Select the items and place the order
    • Set the pickup time for picking up the placed order from the restaurant
    • View the list of all the past orders placed till date
  • For the owners of the product, we built an Admin Panel which enabled them to:
    • View the list of all the restaurants and all the orders placed at that restaurant
    • View the list of all the end users and the orders that they have placed
    • View reports regarding the payments that need to be done to the restaurants
    • View the menu for each of the restaurants
    • View the queries sent by the end user or the restaurant owners

Both the end user apps – iOS and Android are now live on their respective stores. More and more end users are getting onboard to easily place orders and save time by not having to wait at the restaurant after ordering. More and more restaurant owners are getting onboard to get their restaurants listed and receive orders from the end users and increase their sales.
