A canteen facility is a additional system that is provided by organizations for their employees. Many employees in an organization use canteen services as they do not have the means to prepare their own food or are unable to get it. For a large organization, it is really difficult to manage. Traditionally, the practice followed is distributing manual printed coupon to employees at a prepaid cost. However this system demands more logistics in printing, distributing coupons and moreover maintaining the account of each employee entitlement.
The entire canteen process from controlling long queues to food selection to payment is subject to inaccuracies. It also involves lots of cash transactions, handmade coupon generations and food planning. A lot of food gets wasted because there is no prior information of the required amount on that particular day. It also becomes a tedious job when it requires managing so many persons at the same time. It highly requires an application that will manage all the food operation process and at the same time eliminating the paper work and maintenance of cashbooks. Thus the proposed solution Canteen Management System can be used to overcome the entire problem which they are facing currently, and making complete automization of manual system to computerized system.
