What's new with Restaurantdiary™
If you haven't looked at Restaurantdiary™ for some time, we think you'll be impressed with what you see this year. Now's your chance to move to a system that makes it easier for your customers to book into your restaurant and helps you to lure them in! And all for a single flat fee every month! Imagine paying no more commissions on bookings from your website or Facebook page.
iPad Hostess App
We have released our host iPad APP - this can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store under "ResDiary" and is free for Restaurantdiary™ customers, if you wish to use the iPad APP please email email@example.com and request that they enable access to the iPad APP for your restaurant. Your comments and suggestions would be most welcome.
Customer-branded iPhone and Android App
We also now have the facility to produce an "own brand" iPhone APP and "ownbrand" Android App for Restaurantdiary™ customers. We can make an App for your restaurant or group of restaurants for only £15 a month per restaurant.
We are about to launch the new www.booktoeat.com portal with a big marketing campaign (in Glasgow first). The site looks fantastic and as bookings are received they pop up on the map of the relevant city in real time - the web site automatically "geo-locates" to wherever you are in the world.
This consumer facing portal is linked in real time with your Restaurantdiary™ account and all bookings conform to your back office yield management settings.
However, you can already add your own restaurant to www.booktoeat.com today if you wish (http://www.booktoeat.com/restaurantregistration) - there will be no charges in October.
We have not yet firmed up on our sales model but it will definitely be a low monthly flat fee for existing customers of Restaurantdiary™ (projected at £25 per month).
We shall undertake never to perform PPC advertising on restaurant names or brands and will enable the "pass through" of customers straight to your own restaurant web site and also promote your restaurant 'phone number. All customer details will be passed straight into your Restaurantdiary™ database to enable viral building of your database and for future marketing - we need to sort out "opt in" on the web site.
Restaurants listing on the www.booktoeat.com portal will also be listed on the BooktoEat iPhone APP free of charge (http://www.restaurantdiary.com/news/booktoeat). This APP is available for download from the Apple App Store now (search "BooktoEat") and is completely FOC to consumers - it would be great if you could tell your customers about it. We would happily carry out a mail campaign for you if you wished.
