MISE EN PLACE
Mise en Place is a POS System designed for restaurants & other culinary establishments. It was developed by two fellow students and me as part of the Interface Design course in my second semester.
The main screen of the app consists of a visual representation of the different tables of the restaurant. The color of the tables is indicative of the time since the last serving. Red tables have not been served in a long time and should be served right away. White glowing tables are tables that are reserved for customers within the next half hour.
By clicking on a table, the user can see the purchases of that table in the upper half of the screen, while the lower half can be used to take down new orders. Orders that usually come with garnishes automatically bring up the garnish menu, where the waiter can specify the garnish to the chef. All of this is Restaurant-specific of course and can be set up by the admin (like the chief of staff) in the beginning.
After having selected all the dishes and drinks, the waiter can send the order to the chef by pressing the finalize button down in the middle. The order is complete and we‘re back in the restaurant view.
The payment process can be started in the table view, by clicking on the euro icon. Payment options include cash-, split-, credit card-, voucher- and invoice payment. Split payment allows the user to select items from the list above and cash them in groups or individually.
