The large number of systems used in stores, including menu management, inventory management, delivery service, in-store ordering, and others, each of which is linked to a back office with different operational configurations and a different login address, posed great challenges for staff, resulting in complex and fallible store configurations. To further expand the sales channels of physical products, such as thermos flasks, mugs, and coffee sets, our client needed to add [Coffee Lifestyle] to their app, for which home delivery and takeout functions were required.
