Here’s a look at what’s new this month:

  1. Design & layout improvements:

  2. Dining room table layout:

    We’ve made improvements to simplify the tables view without compromising access to essential details. A new “Table Turns View” shows the time and number of guests for up to three additional turns. The new “Guest Name View” keeps focus on first turn details:

  3. Table details:

    Icons have been simplified:

  4. Reservation log layout:

    Both the expanded and contracted reservation log views have been reworked to also simplify without compromising access to essential details:

  5. Reservation table auto-suggest

    With our new “Intelligent Table Assignment” system, tables can be configured according to priority, occasion, dining duration and party size. When booking a reservation either online or in-house, the next best available table will be automatically selected, creating up to four full turns for each table during a meal period.

    • How to activate:

      1. In the “Floor plan” section of the Administrator module, configure table priority, occasion and seating ranges:

      2. In the “Settings” section of Administrator module, select “Dining Assistant” and toggle the Auto-Suggest option for in-house reservations and the Auto-Assign options to activate online reservation table assignments:

  6. Wait quote prediction for waiting lists & walk-in auto-assign (activation required):

    When Wait Quote Prediction is turned on, a new hourglass icon will provide easy access to wait quote estimates for primary party slots (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11+).  The new flash report makes it easy & quick for host team members to foresee which tables are most likely to be available next when the restaurant is full.

    The Walk-In form also makes it easy to see wait quotes for specific party sizes, or any slot sizes that do not have table availability. If the Walk-In Auto-Assign feature is turned on, the next best available table is automatically selected so that each new walk-in party is paired with upcoming table availability:

    • How to activate:
      Because our Wait Quote Prediction is a true AI algorithm which analyzes historical and real-time data, a two-week “learning period” is required. Please contact us for further details.
