The Bakeologists, a growing Brisbane wholesale bakery, needed an ordering system that would ensure placing orders was super convenient and time-saving for their growing list of retail customers. The team at ZOIK worked with The Bakeologists to develop a customized, web-based, client ordering and baking management system.
ZOIK built a web application in Laravel, PHP web framework, that provided an online tool for customers to log-in and place order of favourite products for delivery in the next seven days. The application provided notifications to assist staff manage orders and collate all orders for baking, packing and delivery.
This mobile-friendly project was extended in 2019 by integration into Reckon Accounts Hosted. ZOIK designed an application to collect confirmed daily orders and send these to The Bakeologists online accounting management program. The service automatically generates invoices ready to send to clients.
ZOIK created a secure order web-app (by default it displays a list of each client’s ‘favourite’ products, with an additional field for comments). Clients can pre-order up to seven days in advance. The system allows for cut-off times to avoid orders after daily baking deadline.
Once confirmed, collated orders are available in a simple staff view to display and print for baking, slicing and packing.
Completed orders are ‘posted’ to the client’s accounting system where they automatically created as invoices ready for dispatch.
