Right, but ultimately a human is required to process the order (at least in the case of a food order). Even if the order is printed it still requires a person to check the printer. You could have a web page that routinely checks for new order and changes the color of the page if there are new, unprocessed orders. That doesn't require creating a second webserver or any way out solutions. At least that's my opinion.
I already have a web management application that is on their computer, which notifies the restaurant when a new food order has arrived. But its really annoying when you have to manually print each food order when it comes in the order management. Espically when you get 20 orders a day, and you are in the middle of a lunch hours. I want it to have the food orders automatically print, and have them confirm it.
A competitor of mine already has this, where every order that comes through their order management gets printed automatically. All i want is to have a file to be sent the the printer. Not necessarily have the actual browser print what ever it is is seeing on the screen.
Is there anyway I can have a file get sent to the printer, and bypass the print dialogue box?
