Readyping has launched allowing restaurants to easily and safely send their customers a text message when their table is ready.
As long as restaurants have been around, customers have waited to be seated. Whether they have a reservation or are a walk-in, a busy restaurant may not be able to accommodate all of its guests upon arrival. Whatever check in method is used, the host must find each party when their table is ready. Restaurant pagers make it easier to notify customers, but they are expensive, have a limited range of operation and can be lost, damaged or even stolen. They may also pass bacteria from one guest to another.
Readyping utilizes hardware that restaurants and consumers already have: computers with Internet access and mobile phones. It only takes a few moments to create an account and start using Readyping to check in guests who must wait for a table. The host simply enters their name, party size and mobile phone number. When a customers table is ready, the host clicks a button next to their name and a text message is instantly sent to their mobile phone letting them know the host is waiting to seat them.
