Marietta, GA (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
SeatMe, a leading provider of online restaurant reservation software and front of house management software that helps restaurants fill more tables, announced today that a new restaurant in Marietta, GA, has selected SeatMe for a complete restaurant management solution. The Butcher the Baker has been using SeatMe for a few months, with positive results. When evaluating their online reservation and table management service provider options, The Butcher the Baker picked SeatMe over OpenTable, Rezbook, and other competing solutions. They found that only SeatMe offers a full suite of additional features that exceeds OpenTable’s feature-set.
SeatMe offers The Butcher the Baker several advantages over OpenTable and other solutions like Ubanspoon’s Rezbook. First and foremost, restaurants like The Butcher the Baker benefit from much lower costs: SeatMe charges a flat ninety-nine dollars per month, with a generous free trial period, and without any cover fees or added charges. By comparison, OpenTable costs between several hundred and thousands of dollars per month. The Butcher the Baker is also freed from any long-term contracts or hardware fees. All they need is Web access to manage their restaurant from anywhere, and from as many places as they’d like. There are no additional fees for accessing the reservation books from multiple places, which isn’t the case for other restaurant reservation solutions.
Beyond cost savings, SeatMe provides The Butcher the Baker a few additional features not found on OpenTable: namely, the ability for Town’s End to text walk-in guests when their table is ready. These diners then get added to the restaurant’s electronic guest book, where their dining history, preferences, and allergies may be saved for future visits. Adding these walk-in diners to the guestbook is key to creating a customized, VIP-like experience for every diner.
SeatMe also frees up time for the hosts at The Butcher the Baker: now they can confirm reservations via text message, rather than calling every diner individually, as would be necessary with most other solutions.
What’s more, if The Butcher the Baker ever wants to host a prepaid dining event, like a Mother’s Day Brunch, SeatMe can handle that, too, without any additional software or cost. This additional flexibility -- which adds some predictability to a restaurant’s finances -- is only available with SeatMe.
All of this additional functionality is built on top of SeatMe’s core service, which enables restaurants to take reservations online twenty-four hours a day, from their website, mobile phones, and SeatMe.com.
Unlike other restaurant wait-list management and online reservation tools, SeatMe doesn’t charge any additional fees per seated diner or for added features. Everything is included in the flat monthly fee of $99, with no contract, and all restaurants have a full two weeks to try the service for free.
Setup is also a breeze, and it only takes a few minutes. Restaurants like The Butcher the Baker can sign up and start accepting reservations in time for their next service.
“SeatMe helps restaurants build their own loyal customer base, which ultimately drives their long-term success,” said Alexander Kvamme, SeatMe CEO. “The food speaks for itself, and restaurants like The Butcher the Baker shouldn’t have to pay OpenTable for their loyal diners, and we’re thrilled they picked SeatMe to help manage their front of house.”
SeatMe, headquartered in San Francisco, CA is a leading provider of online restaurant management tools, allowing restaurants everywhere to fill more tables and increase check sizes by accepting online reservations and managing walk-in diners via an intuitive iPad interface. SeatMe offers a variety of advanced features to help restaurants manage all of their guests and front of house services, without charging any per-diner or equipment fees.
