Microsoft PowerApps: Foodie

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.”

James Beard

Food is another universal language that as humans, our bodies understand.  Everyone needs food everyday to be strong and healthy. But, due to the hustling and bustling daily, it can be difficult to prepare what we want to eat.

At this point, restaurants and food vendors usually come in handy.

Every, or let’s say most organizations, have food vendors that takes care of its employees feeding needs eliminating the need for going to a restaurant. However, this has indirectly created another difficulty in service. How? You may ask.

Imagine an organization have over 250 employees and about 200 of them needs to order breakfast from the organization’s food vendor. How long will it take for the orders to be taken? How long will the vendor process the billings for each one of them? Before planning on making their delivery. It’s possible that breakfast would be served by brunch time.

This is the point where Bytes Ahead Limited comes to your aid with its very own application, Foodie.
