View Full Version : Food Ordering Online

03-13-2009, 01:28 AM
I am developing a website for a Pizza company.
The site is completed now, but they just asked me for an Online Ordering system where users can enter their postal code and login, then order a pizza.

Sure, this is all easy to store the order in a database, but what do you guys recommend I use or do at the Branch Outlets to let the staff know an order has been placed. I am not sure how to accomplish this.
Should I build a computer at each branch that has a web interface that will use AJAX to pull all new orders for that partcular branch from the database and based on the timestamp the staff will see the order?

Can anyone provide a solution to this problem or suggestions. Thanks all.
