Online restaurant order system
The use of computers has become one of the most common activities in Ghana today. With the wide variety of possible uses that exists for these complex electronic systems, it is no wonder that most of the commercial industries that exist today implement its uses one way or another. There however exist other alternatives to PC use which if explored could pave the way to greater productivity. In most restaurants that exist today, various methods are used to receive orders from customers. One of such modern day methods is the use of an online medium through which orders are made by customers through the internet, from any location. With this method, orders are normally received and managed at the restaurant on desktop computers. Using desktop computers to manage these orders however often come along with problems such as the high cost involved with the acquisition of computers, maintenance of these computers and of electricity used to power these computers. Some employees also sometimes use these computers for unproductive activities such as playing games, chatting online and sometimes viewing pornographic sites. This document reports on a project undertaken to develop an alternative system that could replace the desktop computers used to manage orders in such restaurants and also curb the problems that come with using desktop computers. It provides documentation on how the designed system works, the architecture behind it, and the procedure undertaken to arrive at the final product.
