You're not a computer scientist and neither are your hosts, so stop looking at apps that feel like you're launching a space shuttle.
Try an online waitlist and reservations app designed for ease of use and be up and running in minutes.
Hunting down waiting guests by physically dialing them is time consuming, and walking around screaming out names is just plain annoying (and means your hosts aren't greeting guests). Our restaurant waitlist app and estimated wait time feature improves the guest experience and prevents crowded waiting areas.
Enter the same information into TablesReady and click to notify your guests when their table is ready in seconds. Save even more time when guests text back to confirm or cancel.
Keep your notifications short & sweet, or use up to 320 characters to keep your guests informed. Speed up the ordering process and decrease turnover time by sharing your menu and specials, or build your brand by promoting events and linking to your social media pages.
No more big upfront investments in hardware or replacing pagers that break or "walk off" every few weeks. And the best part? Your guests can easily cancel or reschedule their reservations from their own cellphones, all in real time. Let's see your old pagers do that.
TablesReady is the simplest waitlist app that makes life easier for your waiting guests and your host stand.
Simply click the green plus sign in the lower righthand corner to add the waiting guest's phone number, name, and any applicable notes.
Waiting customers can see their estimated wait quote and place in line, all in real time, improving the guest experience and eliminating crowded waiting areas.
One click is all it takes. When you're ready to seat waiting customers, click the Notify button on your Waitlist to send your Ready SMS.
After you've seated/served a guest, click the green checkbox under Actions to mark them as served.
