Abstract

This study presents the automation of an online laundry management system (OLMS) for laundry organizations. Laundry firms usually have the challenges of keeping detailed records of customers clothing leading to disappointments on the side of customers. Issues arising include customer clothes mix-ups and untimely retrieval of clothes collected in relation to their owners. This system helps the users track progress on their clothing items, fixes date for collection or arranges drop-offs and communicates directly with business operators. Also, customers’ information remain available at all times as it is retained within the system. Each customer is assigned a unique ID on registration to avoid contrasting information. The implementation tools include PHP, JavaScript, HTML, MySQL, visual studio, WAMP server and a web browser. This solution brings ease to operating the business and controlling work flow; from managing customer information to managing service requests/orders as well as managing service rendition. The design also has a unique and user friendly interface. This affords the users and providers of the service an opportunity to enjoy seamless operations.
