"The Pizza Delivery System is a GTK+ Application for automating the order processing of both delivery and take away orders for your average Pizza Bar, Cafe, Bistro, etc."

"The system is available from Eljay or one of our dealers as a complete turn-key system that includes a computer, network infrastructure, and a receipt printer."

"The system will be immediately useful for the smallest business, as it is very easy to setup and use. However, the system can also scale effortlessly to enable a large network of computer all working together for a larger store. The system will also cope with a large chain of stores spread across various locations, with databases synchronized nightly via modem transfers of data."

"The unique aspect of this system is that although it is a fully commercial offering, it is also published under the GNU Public License, which means that ANYONE is free to download the entire source code for the system, extend or modify the program without having to pay ANY fees or incur ANY royalties. This way, we hope to encourage other developers to add value to the product, establish an international support network, and to have the product made available to businesses in markets where it is not economical for us to market it."

"Finally, this is a product which has benefitted from being used by real businesses in real settings, which has enabled the system to move beyond the software lab and evolve a structure that we are confident would suit the operations of any typical fast food delivery business."

"There will always be exceptions to this rule however, and we strive to incorporate any number of customizations to suit any prospective customer."

"The configuration of the database includes full auditing on orders (so the operator can see a history of changes to an order), and automatic scripts for database backups and replaying transactions for disaster recovery."
