Description:

Many restaurant point-of-sale (POS) systems are inefficient and confusing. We aim to amend this by designing a portable and minimalistic POS software built for tablets, and designed to handle tasks, tables, pending orders, and payment. We intend to implement this with a React Native app so that it can be easily deployed on all target devices.

Our platform will have numerous benefits for establishments that use it. Firstly, servers will be able to complete their tasks quicker and decrease turnaround time. This will increase customer satisfaction and gratuity. The sales data from each working shift will be stored and organized to allow management to analyze their metrics and make calculated business approaches. The end goal is to maximize efficiency and profit for the workforce and management teams in the foodservice industry.
