I have a project that lets you order coffee via your iphone/android or desktop for that matter, and this prints out on a receipt printer at your coffee shop/takeaways. You can view more details here http://smartorder.co.nz or view a demo site with your weapon of choice at http://cupajo.smartorder.co.nz

Would you use this if your favorite place had one?

Hmmm. Yes, I'd use.

The demo site needs an update: "Your not a registered user" should read "You're not a registered user".

If you let me know who you regularly goto for coffee I will let them know 'someone' is interested in the service and I can chuck one in for a few weeks trial. This would be good for your favorite takeaways as well.

Yep, the 'app' detects your browser and changes to suite. If you goto http://smartorder.co.nz/how.php and scroll to the bottom there is a video of the operation. Although it has changed slightly since this video has been made.

freitasm: Is there a mobile site? Not using iPhone or Android.


Sorry misinterpreted your question.  No, not at the moment. I am looking at Opera next, won't be doing wap at this stage.

I'd use it for McDonalds/Burger King etc for both in store and drive through too. I hate going though the drive through and having to decide while they're waiting. Why they only put the menu boards at the entrance or at the order point in drive thoughts always amazes me, I need them while I'm queuing. I don't like to keep people waiting whlie I decide as I don't have the whole menu engrained in my mind so I always just go for the one thing I can remember! With an interface like this I could decide beforehand and wouldn't have to deal with the muffled intercom at the order station ;-)

It's geared more towards Ma and Pa coffee shop/takeways as big players like McD's could probably get a POS plugin to do the same. Although it could be a cheap 'proof of concept' for them.

Yep so would I. And even more so if it could be acepted (scanned maybe) off the phone screen. I.e no printing needed.

no printing required your end. Just a unique order number supplied when you place an order.

I think this would be great for Chinese/Indian/Fish and chips type places. But not so sure about coffee shops
as I would want my coffee freshly made. Even if you do order your coffee via smartorder say inside the coffee
shop you would still have to wait inline to pay for your order. (or does smartorder allow online payments) then
wait inline again to get your coffee.

You pay when you pick up at the moment. I am sure if you we a regular customer they would set up some sort of credit system. As for your order, they could just yell out your order number when it was ready. I think it works as much for the retailer as for you so systems could be put in place.
