How did the idea evolve?

The idea was born in a restaurant where we waited roughly 45 minutes to order a drink. We created a prototype to address the market, and then relocated our company in a restaurant to learn as much as possible how they operate.

If the original ideas have always been to provide an End to End solution, we are now evolving to a solid SaaS platform, enriched with applications, as a mid/longterm vision.
