Forget Pagers, NoWait Texts You When Your Table is Ready

WHAT: An iPad app for casual-dining restaurants to manage seating. Restaurant hosts or hostesses put the customer’s phone number in the app and notify the guest via text message when a table is available.

Customers are free to leave the restaurant until they are notified, at which point they can cancel their table or tell the restaurant (also by text message) they will be there soon.

Restaurants can also use the system to send thank-you messages to the guest and invite them to join reward-type programs by texting a response. The restaurant does not retain customer phone numbers unless customers opt-in to their programs. Restaurants can connect multiple devices to the platform, including their iPhones.
