Scan Smile Menu - One e-menu by hand, better than a hundred menus on the ground

Get It... Scan It... and Smile

Now is the time for our e-menu to occupy its rightful place in this era. Consider going back in time with me to the era of the printed menu; what if you wanted to add a dish? Or do you want to remove a dish? It will cost you money to print several menus once again! Alternatively, you may add by hand! In any scenario, the role is unsuitable.

One of the most essential advantages of the e-menu is the ability to scan the QR Code and view the whole menu on your mobile device. This isn’t simply another task on the list. It is a full system for restaurants, beginning with ordering meals and progressing to the restaurant’s accounts and financials.

Scan Smile Menu Idea

Scan smile is a comprehensive menu system for restaurants that is not only limited to scanning the QR Code but has many uses, starting with requesting the order, tracking it, receiving it, booking a table, paying through it or cash, these advantages are from the customer’s side, what about the restaurant side?

A responsible restaurant has many advantages. The dashboard monitors everything that happens in the added branches, starting from the time the order took to the percentage of sales of each branch daily, weekly, monthly, and annually. In addition to the booking system added to it, the customer can reserve his table without referring to the restaurant, as the system automatically shows the empty tables.

Task description

What is required is the design and development of a complete system for restaurants, the entire system (programming, UI UX designs, content writing) was created by the Layouti team. The website is connected to a dashboard system and an application to serve all aspects of the restaurant and the user.

What’s Scan Smile?

Scan Smile offers various opportunities and benefits to its owner, including the first financial grandfather of all restaurant branches, if he has one. The restaurant has the option of adding an endless number of branches, categories, languages, and countries. For the project to be compatible with both worldwide mega-eateries and start-up restaurants.

A separate section for the ordering system, beginning with the client placing his request and tracking it till the fulfillment and reception of the customer. Not only that, but the consumer may reserve a table and choose the number of people and meals through the system as well.

Challenges & Objectives

The entire project was full of challenges, from programming and designing all these features to linking the systems together in a consistent and relevant way.

Safe System

E-menus have spread greatly after the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, so it was necessary to reduce friction, and that is what we strive for to make the application safe for its users.

All in One

Programming and designing a comprehensive restaurant system that acts as a waiter, supervisor, reservations officer, and financial officer.

Consistent Linking

Link all of the system’s features and characteristics in a meaningful and consistent way, where each feature in the system complements the other like a chain.

Let`s check Scan Smile process

Brand Strategy

When building any new brand, we always study its identity well to build a strong brand with a clear meaning that reaches the audience. The brand is a long-term plan, to verify its purpose, it must define all the promises and how to implement them, all in the language of design, colors, and slogans.

For example, Scan Smile is a name that indicates the existence of a QR Code and the slogan came to support it to explain that it is a QR Code for a menu system, then the colors, designs, and other elements supported the identity of the project.

UX Research

Science and knowledge are a vast and endless sea, so the research methodology for Layouti has not and will not be invalidated. When we launched the Scan Smile project, we studied the market needs and the way competitors responded to the market’s call to differentiate ourselves through design and features as well.

The importance of UX Research is highlighted here since we cannot be distinguishable in a way that contradicts the customer’s satisfaction, as he will utilize our project in the end. We took our own path to reach the intended customer, holding several workshops and meetings with him to address all of the issues he had with competitors before launching our strategy.

UX Analysis

After determining the market and competitors’ strengths and weak points, it is necessary to construct our scenario by evaluating the data gathered throughout the UX research to pump the steps, distribute the duties, and test the results.

Stockholder Survey

What problems are you facing in your current restaurant system?

What are the features available in the current restaurant system?

What are the solutions that will solve the problem of the current system of the restaurant from your point of view?

Customer Survey

What are the difficulties you encountered in dealing with restaurant applications?

How do we overcome the flaws of the application from your point of view?

Have you booked your table at a restaurant from an app? And what do you think of the idea?

What do you think of the QR Code menu? Do you prefer it or prefer the paper menu?

Menu Browse App

With the fast advancement of technology, the usage of smartphones has become unavoidable, with billions of users. As a result, we designed and developed a menu browse app that allows you to explore all of the available menu dishes, make an order, track it, and pay the expenditures through it or upon receipt.

Results

Strong Connection

We succeeded in our design to link all systems together in one dashboard. The application, the website, and the system were linked to form an integrated circuit.

Lightning-fast

The speed of completion of tasks in the system is evidence of intelligence in the use of appropriate design elements.

Save time, effort, money

The system is comprehensive for everything related to restaurants, which saves money spent on different systems, saves workers’ effort and time.

If we build the product in time and budget and users simply do not engage with it, then we will have successfully achieved failure.
