Stop Shouting Names & Eliminate Pick-Up Chaos

If you love screaming names or order numbers, you'll hate TablesReady. (Sorry, not sorry!)

Just enter a customer's phone number and name or order number (however you track things) into TablesReady and when their order is ready, simply click a button to send a customizable notification straight to their mobile phone.

Grow Your Business With Happier, Engaged Guests

You could send your guests an impersonal beep or buzz through an old-school pager, or you can use your own voice to send automated notifications. Throw in SMS automations, two-way chat, and follow-up messages and you've got yourself a heck of a powerhouse all in one app!

Of course, that's not to say that your vintage pagers are entirely useless — they make fantastic paperweights.

Integrate with Square POS

Our direct integration with Square automatically pulls in customer and order information so you can notify them when their order is ready with a simple click of a button. View order information directly on your waitlist and use TablesReady as a KDS.

Yep, that's right; what was already easy just got even easier.
