Take Away

Takeaway is an application that enables people living in the western region of Uganda especially Mbarara City to order and receive their desired products from the comfort of their homes. As a self-service application, Takeaway is innovatively modeled with the users interests at the fore front.

Takeaway does not establish and own large stores to provide this order and delivery service, as it sees this as depriving opportunity for small scale businesses from participating in the market. We also believe that owning a store might further lead to elimination and collapse of small businesses, and even competing with them rather than supporting them to grow. Takeaway avails facilities that accommodate even small businesses and hence allowing them to sell online. This social capability has enabled application structuring to allow stores owners (small and large scale) to register themselvess, publish their products, and allow a customer to navigate their favorite store, increasing affordances and usability of the application.

The application has four core features as below
1.Virtual shopping
The same way you would walk into your favorite supermarket or grocery store is the exact same experience you will find on takeaway. We present our users with a list of shops and after selecting a shop, a user can “enter” and shop as much as they want. Shopping from different shops would require our user to complete their current order and there after proceed to another store. This is Virtual shopping

2.Order tracking
TakeAway provides you with an easy and graphical way to monitor your orders that is;
At this stage, the order has been sent but not yet received by the store. We give our users a small threshold within which the order can be canceled. After this stage, orders cannot be canceled any more.
When the shop receives the order, they place a phone call to the client for confirmation and any extra instructions. After this,the order is marked as processing. Different sellers will take different amounts of time at this stage
c)En route
When an order is well packaged and ready, the delivery agent is notified and will start shipping the order. The time an order is at this stage is entirely dependant on the user’s location.
At this stage, the order is complete and is moved to past orders.

3.Location awareness
Take-away is location aware in that clients do not have to specify pickup points. Using several GPS and satellite technologies, the application automatically picks the user’s current location. Users have a choice of selecting from our pickup points that are well spread throughout the city. All this is put in place to reduce time it would take if the delivery agents were to rely on phone calls.

4.Effortless shopping
With all the great features we provide, it all sums up to effortless and hussle-free shopping.
