The Pittsburgh, PA-based tech start-up, NoWait, streamlines seating customers at restaurants and provides analytics to restaurant managers. Patrons are texted when they check in at the restaurant, can see what spot they are in line for a table and receive a text when it is their turn to be seated.
Restaurant reservations become costly to a restaurant when guests are no-shows or even show up late, but no one likes waiting in line at restaurants that don’t accept reservations. NoWait provides a simple, inexpensive solution for restaurants that also provides the patron with a better experience. Efficiently seating patrons improves revenues for restaurants and using ubiquitous mobile technology, it creates a new communication opportunity between restaurants and patrons.
Just a few years ago the app economy did not exist. By leveraging wireless broadband and high-speed internet together with the latest technologies, NoWait shows that it’s possible to seat guests through mobile phones and improve the overall experience of dining out.
