ALLENTOWN, Pa., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harbortouch, a leading national supplier of point of sale (POS) systems, today announced the deployment of the industry's first-ever free online reservations module available for all Harbortouch Hospitality systems as part of its industry-leading free POS system program.
The new Harbortouch Reservations module is available free of charge to restaurateurs using the Harbortouch POS system, making it the most affordable reservations management system available. Harbortouch Reservations enables restaurant customers to make dining reservations online and allows the restaurant to manage all incoming reservations directly through their Harbortouch POS system. In addition to accepting reservations online, restaurant staff may also manually enter reservations in-person or over the phone and track them all through the POS system. As a unique added convenience for diners, Harbortouch Reservations will alert restaurant patrons when their table is ready via a text message sent directly to their mobile phone.
"Similar online reservation systems cost hundreds of dollars a month, but Harbortouch Reservations is offered to all Harbortouch Hospitality merchants at no cost," said Harbortouch EVP of Sales & Marketing Brian Jones. "This represents a substantial savings for our clients, especially when combined with our entire POS package that's available to any size establishment with no up-front costs whatsoever. It's an unbeatable value."
The software was developed to be extremely intuitive and easy to use, with a wide range of features and benefits including:
- The ability to manage online and manually-entered reservations in one place,
- A simple and easy-to-use interface for maximum efficiency,
- A drag-and-drop setup process that makes creating your table layout a snap,
- The ability to organize reservations in a monthly calendar or view a specific night in detail,
- A quick and easy way to add new reservations and see who is waiting for a table,
- A table layout screen that shows which tables are open and which are occupied, and
- Text message alerts to notify restaurant patrons when their table is ready.
As part of the company's unprecedented free equipment program, the Harbortouch Hospitality software is perfect for fine dining, casual or quick service restaurants.
