NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nowait, the first mobile network for casual-dining restaurants, and NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer-transaction technologies, today announced its integration of Nowait's host app with the NCR's industry-leading Aloha point-of-sale solution. The cloud-based NCR integration will soon enable thousands of Nowait's restaurant partners nationwide – which seat 25 million diners a month and 250 million to date -- to integrate, maintain, and deploy their table-status services across NCR's point-of-sale system.
"As the largest player in the casual-dining market, NCR complements our table-management technology, enabling us to better tailor to the evolving needs of our restaurants," said Ware Sykes, CEO of Nowait. "Connecting them with their guests on a deeper level means offering them more meaningful and intuitive data, directly from the central nervous system of any table service restaurant – the host stand."
Through its seamless integration with NCR, Nowait uses the table statuses and open check data to refine its proprietary algorithm, which increases wait-time accuracy for guests and optimizes the casual-dining experience.
"NCR is leading the omni-channel revolution in the restaurant industry. Providing a solid and secure integration platform to our core solutions is critical to delivering on that strategy," said Paul Langenbahn, President, NCR Hospitality. "We are pleased to welcome an innovative partner such as Nowait to our Cloud Connect Program and help our collective customers improve their overall casual dining experience for their guests."
