Curries Online - Cwmbran, South Wales
Curries Online, based in Cwmbran, South Wales, is an online take away ordering system (think "Just Eat", but focused only on currie houses) which allows real-time ordering of curries from thousands of restauarants and take aways in the UK.
They asked us to develop an Android app which would integrate with their existing systems and would allow orders to arrive instantly on an Android tablet in restaurants and orders be printed on a bluetooth thermal printer in the restaurant kitchen.
We developed a bespoke Android app for restaurants integrated with Curries Online's existing web-based ordering systems
Curries Online required a bespoke Android app that could be installed on tablets in restaurants and that would integrate with their existing systems and would allow orders to arrive instantly on an Android tablet at the restaurant and then when the green accept button was clicked that the order be automatically printed via a bluetooth thermal printer so the order could be fulfilled in the kitchen.
The solution we developed provided the following features:
- The Android app should poll the cloud-based ordering system every minute and update orders on restaurant tablets
- Orders can be viewed and either accepted or declined by the restaurant and this will update the cloud-based ordering system immediately
- Accepted orders will be automatically sent to a thermal printer in the kitchen via a Bluetooth connection
- Notes, queries and delivery estimates can be selected/entered by restaurants and will be sent to customers via the cloud-based ordering system
Initial pilot testing proved positive and the app is awaiting roll-out to restaurants.
