SWOT Analysis.jpg


This helped me understand the possibility of who could affect/ be affected by my system.

Stakeholder Mapping.jpg


Direct competitors:

Direct competitors:

  • McDonald’s (kiosk system)

  • Taco Bell (kiosk system)

  • Domino’s (application)

Indirect competitors:

  • Swiggy (application)

  • Zomato (application)

  • Prithvi Cafe (this is a very popular cafe in Mumbai)

This served as a guide when I had to decide features for my system.

A few aspects studied were:

  • Location (s)

  • Target Audience

  • USP

  • System experience 

  • System features

  • Successes, failures

  • Accessibility

  • User flow

  • Navigation

  • Content

Doing a competitor analysis allowed me to:

  • Study features of competitors

  • Understand market trends

  • Mindfully experience using a system and studying the journey first-hand

  • Understand what may work and what may not

The system I created for Tea Villa Cafe aims to unite the physical and digital arenas while ensuring that all customers have an enhanced, seamless and memorable experience.

It caters to customers who visit the cafe. They may be visiting for dine-in or takeaway services.

For dine in services : 

On arrival customers will be provided a tablet by Tea Villa Cafe. This tablet will contain the created system. Once seated, the interaction with the system will begin. While leaving, the customers will hand the tablet back to the restaurant.

For takeaway services : 

On arrival customers will be given a choice between

ordering using the restaurant tablet or ​ordering using their own device. (scanning a QR code will allow customers to go ahead with this option)


  • Food menus are not very descriptive, visually and informatively. They thus do not help the customer much while making a choice

  • Not enough information is conveyed to customers in terms of preparation time, ETA, order status etc. This leads to the customer being impatient and unwillingly unaware

  • The waiting time in restaurants (for food, for the attendant) is a cause of displeasure among several customers

  • Some customers are hesitant to call the attendant multiple times


  • Concise descriptions and photographs for each dish

  • ‘Order tracking’ available to users, which shows the ETA of their order. A kitchen camera feature also introduced which allows the customer to view their food preparation. (An optional feature which can be turned on/off by the restaurant)

  • A ‘Leisure’ section which offers games and reading material (online and offline)

  • An ‘I require assistance’ option available at all times, to help users who are not technologically sound

  • An option to choose the sequence in which the customer would like their dishes to be served (if any)

  • Incentives appeal to all. Thus, a reward point system wherein, points can be utilised to avail discounts.
