Joto Fresh Seafood

Joto supply fresh seafood to many of Sydney's top restaurants. The Joto website includes a custom developed ordering system that leverages the Joomla 2.5 framework, and delivers a one of a kind personalised ordering experience to Joto's prestigious customers on the Apple iPad platform.

Joto approached blacklight with an ambitious project to move customer ordering away from their phone system and into an online process based around Apple's iPad.

Blacklight productions specialise in Joomla development and love the opportunity to develop web applications within the Joomla framework. Using Joomla 2.5 as a base we built a custom ordering system that integrates with Joto's backend system. Joto have delivered iPads to more than 200 of their customers and uptake has been universal. Chefs can now easily order seafood for the next day in their kitchens, with requirements fresh in their mind.

The system promotes loyalty to Joto and strengthens their brand as a supplier that utilises cutting edge technology.

Joomla was the perfect platform as its simple template based system allows easy customisation for multiple platform delivery, such as Apples iPad. Customers who choose to use a PC with a traditional browser client see no difference in the website or order application.

Using Joomla 2.5 as a basis the ordering system was custom built following Joomla's MVC design implementation. The ordering system has its own database structure. Integration with Joto's backend order system is achieved with a text file exchange that runs regularly.
