Online Food Catering Services Management System with Payment Gateway

Online Food Catering Services Management System with Payment Gateway

The project entitled Online Food Catering Services Management System with Payment Gateway aimed to fully automate the process of catering services in an online setting which will be used by catering business to promote their services and to provide their customers an easy way to transact from the inquiry process down to ordering and up to the payment system since the project also incorporates a payment gateway.

Weaknesses of the current system

  • Limited audience/customers. It is said that businesses right now should establish their presence online to attract more customers.
  • Time consuming
  • Erroneous reports and records

Implementation Plan

After performing the different testing (Expert and Users’ Acceptance Testing), we plan for the implementation of the developed system. We prepared the different requirements needed during the implementation. We make sure that the hardware we used is running well and it has no damages.

Recommendations

Based on the findings and conclusions drawn, the following recommendations were given:

  • The owner of the catering service may consider implementing the developed system to monitor all transactions and records online.
  • Implementation of Online Food Catering Services Management System with Payment Gateway will help the business to promote their products and services online, with this the scope of their market will be wider and it will probably turn into more profit.
  • It is also recommended, that similar study may be conducted to further assess the effectiveness and usefulness of the system.
