Mini printers for online food ordering systems (Wi-fi, SMS, GPRS and bluetooth printer integration)

Although the online/mobile ordering system, by default, sends orders to your restaurant/takeaway business via email it is possible to automatically (or manually) print out those orders.

An SMS printer is a new system that enables restaurants to get their orders directly from text messages through a SMS printer. The SMS printer is a small, portable, standalone device for receiving and printing text messages sent to it. Through the SMS printer restaurants do not have to worry about getting their orders wrong as the SMS printer delivers messages exactly as the sender intended in textual format. SMS messages are printed on 58mm thermal receipt paper. The SMS printer can be used to provide an interface between the restaurant website and the kitchen staff. SMS printer really is the way forward for you online ordering business.

The diagrams below demonstrate how this can be achieved using wifi, sms/gprs and bluetooth printers.
