What's In A Name?

Welcome to the Coffee Shoppe with a big difference! "Why?" you may ask, well it's simple, we don't serve Coffee and we aren't a Shoppe! "False advertising!" you scream. The truth is that we didn't want to name our company "John Doe's Computer Software Development Company" as it's too dull and you probably wouldn't remember the name! So we decided on something obscure, hence "The Real-Time Coffee Shoppe" (RTCS) :

  • Real-Time - We decided on "Real-Time" as everything in this modern computerized world of ours has to happen in "Real-Time" i.e. this very instant (Instant Coffee!?!).
  • Coffee - Coffee is associated with relaxing and that's hopefully what our software will allow you to do. (Or was it from the vast amounts of coffee we drink while programming and brain-storming!?!)
  • Shoppe - Shop, but spelt the "old school" way. We like to think of ourselves as a friendly helpful place where we can provide people with software solutions for their needs and problems, but we probably put it in while on a caffeine buzz!
