CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurateurs who use Rezbook and OpenTable now have a way to save thousands of dollars in monthly subscription fees, restaurant booking fees and costly set up and training - by trying NexTable.
NexTable is offering six months of service to restaurateurs for free. Those waiting to take advantage of the offer can go to http://home.nextable.com/get-started and key in the code NexTable4U .
NexTable is a complete reservation and table management system for the iPad. It incorporates every aspect of front of the house management, including real-time online reservations, table management, a texting platform and marketing solutions.
Developed by a restaurateur, NexTable requires no long-term contract, no training costs, and no set-up fees, making it far less expensive than competitors' services. It's easy to use with just an iPad and Wi-Fi. With NexTable, restaurant owners can:
* Manage reservations. NexTable works with online reservations, call-ahead seating or walk-in diners. All reservations can be managed from one location.
* Manage tables. NexTable's proprietary table management system suggests exact table types for each guest, including booth and patio, and notes when the next table is available for each party size. Using NexTable, restaurant staff can accurately predict how long each guest will stay.
* Easy Communication with Guests. Two-way texting makes communication simple. When guests call or text for a table, restaurant staffers can send a text message back to confirm the reservation. They can also text wait times and alerts when a table is ready. Guests love NexTable's "Place in Line" service, which allows guests to check their position on the wait list in real time.
Current NexTable clients around the country include multi-unit groups such as Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, popular independent restaurants such as The Cowfish in Charlotte, and well-known properties such as Central at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. NexTable was crafted for independent restaurants, multi-unit restaurants, hotels and resorts. A demo is available at http://vimeo.com/nextable.
Unlike its competitors, NexTable never sends a restaurant's loyal customers to other restaurants. With NexTable, restaurateurs can increase restaurant revenue, improve operational efficiency, and build customer loyalty.
Restaurateur Phong Luong came up with the idea for NexTable after taking his family out to dinner and noticing how many diners left when they heard about the long wait time. He also realized guests were often given inaccurate wait times. "I wanted to solve this problem to make my own restaurants more efficient," he says. "Then I realized it could help other restaurateurs and restaurant groups who are still using manual systems or outdated technology."
