Team Food Order to the rescue

The FoodAnyWay project is designed to allow any caterer the ability to step into the online space. I’m currently working on some extra functionality, that I’m trialling with my colleagues called Team Food Order (TFO).


Using a pre-defined customisable menu, TFO takes multiple food orders from the whole team all at once and combines them into an instantly shared list. This list can then be used to place the whole order on behalf of the team. This is far better than our previous solution of electing one person to write down orders on their phone as it was flawed due to human errors.

I plan to integrate this style of ordering into the FoodAnyWay system so that the orders can be organised and placed for large businesses. Essentially my goal is to have a team of 20+ all placing their orders on their mobile devices and when all have placed their orders, the system automatically forwards the full order to the restaurant. This eliminates the need for queuing, ambiguity, lack of knowledge of the menu and the need for a one person to take the orders for the team.

Well this is fancy

Hello, for those who don’t know, my name is Dan. I’m a software developer at an Enterprise SMS provider. In my spare time I like to create my own infrastructure ( both physical and virtual in the Cloud ) and work on my own private web application projects. This website will be a gateway into my weekly activities where I will discuss the products that I’m working on.

Coming up shortly I will be writing a blog post about a new system that I’m working on which streamlines food caterers workflows by entering them into the digital space.

Stay tuned!
