The Challenge

Slow-moving goods are the bane of retailers and F&Bs. For most restaurants and bars, the responsibility of determining the stock intake usually lies on the shoulder of the chief/manager.

However, understanding the reason behind the fluctuations can be daunting. Our team realized that marketing trends, seasonal promotions, and even movie trends, can be the driving force of consumption after interviewing a few restaurant owners at Lan Kwai Fong.

The Solution

To ease the financial burden of overstocking, and the tragic of wasting perfectly edible-but-past-best-serving-time food, the least expensive way of solving the problem, isn’t building a blockchain-powered AI training model with a self-adjusting algorithm

Instead, our team chose to improve and optimize the decision-making process of the consumer by gaming their purchasing behavior.

We built a POS system that offers dynamic pricing that operates like a stock market. Prices increase with more orders, and vice versa.

The Result

  • A restaurant located at Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong approached the team
  • 3 teammates received job offers after the presentation
