Benefits for Quick Service Restaurants

Streamline Order Pickup

Food gets cold and clutters your counter. You can't find a guest and they don't hear their name. Just enter a customer's phone number and name or order number into TablesReady and click to notify your guests in seconds.

Faster Than You Think

Yes, it takes a few extra seconds to enter a customer's name and phone number into our system (or Square if you're using our integration), but your staff will get very efficient as they get used to it. The efficiency gains in your kitchen and pickup area are more than worth it.

Keep Guests Coming Back

You can say more than "Your order is ready" — our notifications are customizable and let you highlight specials, promote events, or even link to social media pages like Facebook and Twitter.

Benefits for Full Service Restaurants

Social Distancing & Contact Tracing

You can't have parties waiting in your foyer. Take their names and let them know when their table is ready. You can also export the data you need to contact groups if there is a need for contact tracing.


Doing more to-go business? Enter orders into the system and send them a confirmation message that asks them to reply with the make & model of their car when they arrive for pickup. Need to shift from walk-ins to reservations? We've got both, with no per-cover charges.

Ditch the Pagers

Pagers are costly, outdated, dirty, and require your guests to stay within close proximity or risk missing their page. With TablesReady, your guests' phone is their pager — and you can guarantee that won't end up in a garbage can somewhere 😉

Benefits for Health Care

Contactless Check-In

Patients can text when they've arrived instead of coming inside. You can control the flow of traffic and keep your patients (and your staff!) safer.

Promote Social Distancing

Avoid spreading germs and keep your waiting rooms clear. With TablesReady, your patients can wait outside or in their cars until you text them it's time to come in.

Upload Your Appointments

You can upload your appointments into TablesReady and we'll handle the rest, from automatic reminder SMS messages to the check-in process.

Benefits for Hotels & Resorts

Let Your Guests Roam

Let your guests explore your grounds or grab a drink or snack while they wait for their room to be ready — use the Next-In-Line notification to let them know it's time to stop exploring and head back to the check-in desk!

Engage with Your Guests

Check-in and check-out don't need to be your only interactions with your guests. Use the Follow-up SMS message to clue your guests in on happy hour specials, events, or a friendly reminder to book a cabana!

Manage Multiple Waitlists

Setup multiple accounts to manage your check-in desk, conceirge, bar, restaurant, pool — anywhere people are queueing! Offer self-service signup and have your guests wait in their rooms instead of in your lobby. Help maintain social distancing while guests still make the most of their stays!

Public Check-In Kiosk

What's worse than standing in line? Standing in line with the munchies. Let your patients and customers know upfront how long their wait will be so they can grab a snack or take care of an errand.

Offer In-Store and Curbside Pickup

Automate order pickups with TablesReady. Patients and customers can schedule an in-store or curbside pickup — and don't worry, we'll send an automated reminder so they don't forget 😉
