QSR Automations Adds Online Reservations and Marketing Capabilities to DineTime

With New Features, the Guest Management Platform Provides Restaurants Even Greater Resources to Seat More Diners and Grow Their Business

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- QSR Automations, Inc., the restaurant industry leader in guest management solutions and kitchen display technology, announced today the addition of online reservations and email marketing with the release of DineTime Host version 3.0. Adding a simple browser widget to a restaurant's website allows guests to book reservations online which then syncs the information with the app in real time.

With the installation of a Browser Widget (left) that lives on a restaurant's website, customers can book reservations online, which will then be synced with the DineTime Host app's Reservation Book.

DineTime, which runs on an iPad, was created to help improve a restaurant's operating efficiency and increase their business' profitability by providing wait list management, 2-way SMS texting, a guest book, and a variety of detailed operational analytics. Previously, the guest management software offered a reservation book that allowed restaurants to add reservations directly in the software from the host stand.  

"Our work for the last 15 years has always been on the forefront of restaurant technology, and this release is no exception," said Lee Leet, QSR Automations President and CEO. "DineTime now streamlines guest management and online reservations in one app. We knew restaurants wanted an alternative to what's out there now—and they want one they can trust."

With DineTime 3.0, a restaurant's website becomes another way to market to diners and drive traffic into the restaurant. Booking online means keeping phone lines open and more time for host staff to focus on guests. During the booking process, guests are given the option to invite friends to join their party, bringing more business in the door without having to try.

This enhanced version of DineTime also gives restaurant operators the ability to create and send email marketing campaigns to their guests. By using the contact information they've saved in DineTime's guest book, it is easy to promote restaurant events, new dishes, special offers and more to their customers.

"DineTime now gives restaurateurs another way to stay in front of their guests with the marketing campaign feature," said Leet. "Increasing guest communication and building loyalty is another way DineTime is helping restaurants bring in more business."

Pricing for DineTime is tiered, and based on the number of wait listed and reservation parties a restaurant takes monthly. The cost is capped at $199 per month for an unlimited number of parties. DineTime is currently offering a two month free trial of the new online reservation feature.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
