CHAPTER 2

Ø  Background:

Throughout ages animal and meat industry in Pakistan has been running
on manual ordering and billing system and also low quality of meat which is proving
to be detrimental for the consumers and high rates of sacrificial animals in
markets. And the administration needs of this fast-paced world have been
rapidly changing day by day which forces meat industry here to break the slow-paced
legacy and start by taking a new path to handle administration billing and ordering
system otherwise they will be left far behind in this cut-throat competition
age.

 That being said the problem in
the legacy system are dealt on operational basis by not only owners and
administration but also by the Customers which effects the overall reputation
of the company giving a negative blow to the management.

What we have to offer is the solution based on Smart Ordering and
guaranteed quality of product using internet enabled devices and which not only
will be convenient and fast for customers but will also solve the problems
addressed above of the administration and in turn will benefit the owners by
improving its reputation. Our system will enable the consumer to buy halal
animals online from our website. We will establish our setup as brand and
introduce it as a meat vendor in the market.

 

Ø  Literature
Review:

 

In
today’s fast paced world, almost every product is available online. Pakistan is
moving fast towards this era of digitalization and online businesses. We have
many products available to buy/sell online from our phone or any internet
enabled devices. Still. There is great scope for new products and services.

We
have identified a product which has no online presence till now but has great
potential to be a successful online business. We will sell halal animals to be
bought online through our website. At first, we are mostly targeting the
Eid-Ul-Adha event to sell animals for slaughter and then gradually we will
expand our site to provide service throughout the year. Animals will be available
to be served as meat to big restaurants and provide quality halal meat to the
people under our brand.

We will develop a website to let people
buy animals from halaldudes.pk easily through a simple online process and with
the option to pay after shipping as well as prepaid. Website will have animals
displayed with weight, price, height, colour and different attributes and
verified as healthy and healthy by qualified Islamic scholars and doctors.
Customers will have the ability to view, filter, search on different attributes
to buy according to their needs and leave a review for our product and
services.

The system being used currently is out dated and doesn’t meet the
growing demands of the modern world, which cannot perform the required actions
quite well giving many errors which are very inconvenient in real time.

 

 

Ø  Facts
and Finding

This part of report emphasizes on the research done on the topic chosen:

Ø  Market
Survey:

After visiting many local butcher shops in the
territory of Lahore, and talking to different people as well as conducting a
survey, the potential for the adoption of the proposed solution is analyzed.

Our survey was focused on the problems people find
while buying animals from the market. The information is gathered by the means
of small questionnaires containing basic questions, that are to filled or
answered by the locals or butchers i.e. some of the basic questions included in
the questionnaire are listed below.

¾    Explain
your current working / scenario of your restaurant?

¾    What
specifications do your current system provide you?

¾    Do
you believe a system can simplify your task?

¾    What
are the limitation of your current system?

¾    What
more do you want from the system, so that it will be more efficient and
beneficial?

¾    What
are the everyday problems you are facing with customers in receiving and
delivering orders?

We also conducted
interview of meat consumers about their confidence in buying meat. People in
major cities are hesitant to buy meat due to health of animals and more
importantly the fact that even the animal was halal.

We searched for existing
solutions that are providing similar services. We found three websites with
similar theme. They sell halal animals to the consumers. But they are limited
to selling animals only. Three websites currently working are BakraOnline.PKi,
EidQurbani.PKii
and BakraOnline.comiii

BakraOnline.Pk:

This website is currently
working in selected cities of Pakistan including Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Lahore,
Karachi and Islamabad. Its head office is in Islamabad. The working of this
website is that they show their animals online on the website and customers can
place order on the website. But they have to return policy mentioned. And they
take payment in advance before the animal is shipped to customer. And if the
customer don’t like the animal on delivery, the customer can not return it.

Below are a few screen
shots of the website. The figure 1 shows the homepage, figure 2 shows a
specific animal and figure 3 is showing payment options available on their
website.

Figure 1: Showing the homepage of
BakraOnline.Pk

Figure 2: Page to place order of a
animal

Figure 3: A page displaying their
payment methods.

 

EidQurban.pk:

This website is currently
operated in Karachi by a dairy form owner. They provide their delivery services
only within Karachi. This website is well designed but it is not updated. They
are still showing the out of stock animals from last year on their homepage.

The following figure 3
shows their homepage and figure 4 shows a animal selected from the list.

Figure 5: A page showing a specific
product

 

BakraOnline.com:

This is a incomplete and
abandoned site. There idea was similar to the two above websites with no new
feature but they had superior design to engage the customers.

There were some website
encountered which remained just and idea and they were abandoned in their early
phases of development.

Survey
Summary

The gathered survey reports in market survey is
compiled and summarized to make out the following conclusions.

We concluded that the meat market in Pakistan is very vulnerable.
People do not trust the current system. We will have to establish our business
as a brand which is trustworthy and on which people can relay. Due to the
reason that rates of animals in markets are high and they get even higher near
the Eid-Ul-Adha, people face difficulty in finding an animal for sacrifice on
the holy occasion. We will enable customers to easily buy a sacrificial animal
online. Not only they will have better rates, but also save them time and
effort to buy the animal from the market.

The problems mentioned above are to be addressed during our project.
From the literature review we established that the current working solutions do
not provide the ease to the customers. Customers can not choose to return the
animal if they do not like it upon arrival. They ask the customers to pay in
advance. There is no cash on delivery feature on either of the website.

Our proposed system will address these issues. Firstly, we will design
the interface keeping at as simple as possible for customers to easily
interact. The customers will be able to browse our website to see different
animals listed there as in previous sites. But the unique feature of our site
will be that customers can reserve the animal for inspection at their door
step. It will cost them a little shipping fee and if they do not like the
animal, they can return it with a no question asked policy. Some of the
previous websites are providing a slaughter system where customers do not have
to be there, they just pay online and their money is used in slaughtering
animal collectively with other contributors. We will not offer this feature.

All the described websites are well developed and offer a good user
interface. But the major down fall for their business is little to no marketing
and mismanagement to keep the website updated.

Proposed Solution

 

Methodologies:

 

Project Development Phases:

The modules provided by the system are given below.

·        
Front End

The front end of the web
application will be developed to directly interact with our customers. The
people who want to buy animal from us can visit us online at our website. There
will be different sacrificial animals displayed on the website. The customer
can click on any animal to further see the details of that specific animal. The
information about the animal will be weight, type, age and price. Customers can
directly order the animal to be taken to their house.

·        
Back End

The back end of the application
will be available to the data administrator and sales representatives. They can
track the orders received. Whenever a new order is received, it will be
forwarded to sales department to make arrangement for departure of the animal
to the customers home.

The back end users are also
responsible to enter new animals, set an animal as sold, or setting it as
reserved which will mean animal is currently being delivered to a customer for
inspection. If the customer buys the animal, its status will be marked as sold,
otherwise it will be marked again as available for other customers to browse on
our website.

·        
Managerial Portal

This portal is for managers of the
system. They can manage and supervise all the resources of the organization.
The can see all the stats about the sales and animal reservations on the
website. They can also manage the information of other employees of the
organization.

 

·        
Database

Database will be developed and integrated with
website to store all the information of our system in a centralized system. The
database will assist us to automated the process of order processing and gives
us the power to supervise all the jobs being done

·        
Reports

Report part will include

•        
Daily
sales/expense report

•        
Weekly
sales/expense report

•        
Monthly
sales/expense report

•        
Yearly
reports

•        
General
ledger reports

The reports are displayed on the web
application for managers.

Evaluation parameters:

The proposed system will be evaluated on the completion of above
mentioned modules.

The proposed system will be based on MVC pattern and ORM technology.
It will consist or a web application with three different panels

1.     
Admin
portal for managing all kind of transactions and managers.

2.     
Back end
for our employees and managers to run the system.

3.     
Front end
Website for customers

 

 

Timeline:

 

 

Chapter 4

 

Utilization:

            We
are dividing end user in two categories.

1.      Customers.

2.      Admin Panel controlling the Main system

Customers
will interact directly to main system through Web application provided to them.
The best advantage they can get from our system is that they won’t have to physically
visit an animal market to buy animal. It will save their time specially during
the occasion of Eid-Ul-Adha.  

In
perspective of the management, organization can get their hands-on records
really quick. The managers and admin can quickly see the insight at their dashboards.

The
above analysis suggest that technology plays a major role in nowadays world for
it to take over the top organizations in business.

Beneficiaries:

This system benefits a vast majority of people
in the Restaurant domain who are:

·        
Meat
consumers.

·        
Animal
buyers.

·        
Restaurants.

·        
Fast food
chains.

 

Detailed Work Plan & Market Forecasting:

     

The
Development plan is discussed above in Timeline section. It constitutes of four
phases, namely requirement gathering and market study, design of the website,
implementation of the design and testing. Till now we have completed the first
two phases of our work plan. After finals we will start working on
implementation and then testing. The timeline for our workplan is discussed in
details in Timeline section.

Initially
we are looking forward to take this system up to somehow three of one major
city i-e Lahore. We were there while doing market survey. In our market survey
we noticed the need for a fast service and quality animals and meat. Even
though we did not disclose of working to produce a system, we could feel a gap
in market for such a system. The room of improvements in the current manual working
system and quality of product seemed to be matching our requirements of
project. We are quite confident that after that we can increase our goals to
other organizations as well. This was the marketing plan.

Budget Requirements:

The
budget for initial launch of application includes budget for the purchase of
cloud base server/hosting and domain for the web application that will cost
round about ten thousand rupees. These are technical budget requirements.

For
the actual business before launch we need budget to buy animals and also rent a
place to keep them. For this we need investors. We plan to attend business
seminars and conferences and use our networking and ideas to attract investors.
Initially we need 500 animals for which average price per animal is Rs.15000. For
a rent dairy farm, we will need Rs.10 lacs. Later on, we need budget for
marketing and promotion of the system. On start we intend to invest Rs. 20 lacs
on marketing and later on 30% of our profit will be dedicated for marketing
(the social media cost is also included in it).

Market Forecasting:

In
future we strongly believe that with growing population and ever decreasing
quality of meat products our website and business will be a major player in
financial circles. Sooner rather than later many such businesses will emerge in
the market. There are examples of such meat providers in developed countries which
are providing excellent service and product and in return doing great business.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 5

Conclusion:

 

The above results show the need of a powerful system and
good and trustworthy service for this growing industry to cope up with the
difficulties of consumers and customers, and the proposed system contains
modules that can fill up the need and most likely this business module will be
adopted by other owners.
