Abstract:
    Eatphant aims to solve the problem of non-availability of tables in restaurants & order-delay by creating a system for customers and restaurants for table reservations, pre-ordering & other features.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    There is currently no system available in Pakistan to help you with table reservation or ordering before arrival at different restaurants. Many people face problems during peak hours at the restaurants. According to our survey, 8 out of 10 restaurants admitted this problem and requested a solution.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Eatphant will work efficiently to overcome all these problems. This system is much needed in Pakistan due to an increased outflow of the public to restaurants. This system will be beneficial for customers for table reservations and pre-order as well as for the restaurant for better management.
How will the solution works
    Eatphant, a software solution for better management of restaurants reservations, orders and customers has 2 aspects. One part of the system is the executive side which will be managed by the restaurant. The other part is for the customer which is a mobile application as well as web portal which can be used to view different restaurants based on their ratings and food and to reserve a table or order food (Pre-ordering will use ETA using google maps API) either for dine-in or takeaway.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Currently in Pakistan, FoodPanda, EatOye is at the top, then there is TossDown but none of them provide table reservation and pre-ordering of food in which case our product will have the advantage. Another application is Opentable which is not available in Pakistan but provides table reservation.
