A software for a fast food restaurant can't afford to be anything, but instant. The user interface has to be fluid and easy to use and orders must be placed without any delays. With that in mind, our team has created the best ordering software that we've ever seen. It runs on a big touch-screen display mounted in a kiosk, and is intended to be used from within a car. On the other side of the wire is a point of sale application running on any Android or iOS tablet. Two apps are connected via a cloud platform, so the system installation is trivial and fast. And its web-based content management system is flexible and easy to use.
A mission-critical software like that must stand up to high standards of fault tolerance and low latency, that why we used a serverless approach with multi-region replication. Thanks to the pay-per-request model, the system is inexpensive to run and has a predictable scaling. It provides an API for developers to integrate with any external system, like a point of sale application or business intelligence tools. And its client apps are based on Ionic, so they are instantly available for all major platforms and can instantly receive software updates.
