PART1:Sobasically after revising and reviewing all the available opportunities I pickedto make my graduation project on a restaurant POS due to several reasons whichsome of them falls on developing technology, humanity and it’s helpful in thenational economic aspects as well.I will be explaining briefly these reasonsand how it could support these sections in the following paragraph.Dueto the development of life and the speed age, people generally tend to usetheir time effectively and efficiently so they try to use the minimum amount oftime to do maximum work which can be done. and thus why IT and MIS departmentsare required to develop software which can match these needs, In my research, Itry to develop a software which can be simple as possible and can do all taskswhich are required inside most of the restaurants such as point of sale, theiroverview, registration of new items or meals, as well I have added a galleryand plan to a real restaurant which is in my religion and its called THESICILIAN, during the research time I spent effort on understanding thierrequriemnts and future needs.Ipicked this specific restaurant because I knew his manager, and he wasstruggling to make the check bills, he was asking his customers what have youorder so he needs either to trust his customers or memorize what did they haveordered, and it felt uncomfortable for both parties which are the management ofthe restaurant and the customers. as well he was changing his staff crew sooften due to trust issue reasons.
so I thought why I don’t use what I havelearned in my department to help him and it could help him and count for me ashumanity volunteering and at the same time it will match my graduation projectcourse requirement, so I have started to implement my research, I have researchas well how to make this project help the economic aspects, and it was greatidea because it can solve these following issues for any restaurant manager whodoes not have a POS system which could be a decrease in the outcome and therevenue or issues like customers can deny ordering and paying for a specific meal. PART2:thereis a huge collection of restaurants POS systems and they vary from one toanother most of them focus on making as much as possible tasks but after I didmy own research I found that they are way more complicated for end users whichwill be the staff of the restaurant and I have read articles which states theover 68% of the restaurant staff around the world is uneducated so due to thisfact the using of such a complex POS is going to make difficulties for them orat least it won’t be as easy as it should be. due to several reasons which aretime-consuming, and costly as well.so in my own project, I tried to simplify thenormal POS and create my own as modern and simple as it could be.
so it can beeasier to be introduced or explained briefly to uneducated staff or simply easyto use for all different ages and people.one of the issues in resturnts POSwhich was not solved is Lack of flexibility too much of old POS systems are rooted to the specificlocations, which lead to front of house staff has limited flexibility when itcomes to placing a meals orders from a customer, making amendments or checkingthe payments. For example, many old POSsystems don’t double-up as a credit card restaurant POS do, which means thatyou have to differentiate or buy an extra credit card machine. This is not abig issue, but they can also lose the internet connection signals and/or get broken,which can lead to causing suffering for the staff when they are dealing withthe credit card payment such as MasterCard or visa, and your customer will beeither sitting in restaurant doesn’t have clue what to waste time or yelling atyou and your restaurant services. PART3:Inthis part of the introduction, I am supposed to talk about the aims and goalsof my graduation project and what was the new methods or solutions added to thenew updated restaurant pos version of mine.
so basically I have implemented themerge of master card usage to the old normal restaurant POS system. which canlead to a decrease of time in two different criteria which is: the first is tosave time for the credit card machine. so instead of reviewing the normal bankstatement of the credit card machine, with this new updated version you canview your records from the POS system itself, so in this case you don’t have tospend time to go to the bank or ask for statements,you can review your ownrecords from the POS as it sounds quick and easy.The second improvement addedto this project is the simplification of it, because I found that a lot of theusual POS systems focus on making more tasks as it possible and they don’t focuson making it simplified I tried to make my own version special in this fieldwhich can be so handful for saving time and cost,simply because due to the factthe there is huge amount of the resturant staff is not well educated and theywell find it challenging and diffcult as well to use such a complex system aswell it could save money because most of the companys spent their money andeffort to give classes or paying extra credits to the traniees to teach thestaff using the pos system and for time-saving aspects it can save time by itseasy and modern outlook which not hard to use and it provieds quick acces tothe end-user in the same time which can save him time.
