(RestaurantNews.com) As the relationship between restaurants and tech is rapidly growing, owners and managers need to be aware of best ideas and trends. Here’s a look on one of the new services for restaurants — Allset.
Allset is a lunch reservation app. It lets restaurants accept prepaid orders for dine-in. This is the first service to offer a hybrid “table booking+food pre-ordering” approach with focusing on dine-in option. With Allset, restaurants sell in advance and take better care of busy diners.
Pre-orders for dine-in help restaurants avoid hassle and increase table turnover by skipping delays with ordering, food preparation and checkout. With orders and payments settled in advance, employees can serve guests real fast.
Knowing guests’ orders beforehand, restaurants can provide better dining experience. Employees can address guests by name, recall their last visits and suggest favorite foods, making guests feel special.
Allset addresses a growing market niche — busy diners. Having nourishing meals at restaurants usually takes too much time. Allset solves problem of waiting for table, food and check and attracts busy people to restaurants.
Restaurant setup is free and no hardware. Allset provides restaurants with the web dashboard to create public profile, connect bank account and add menu items. To accept prepaid orders for dine-in, restaurants install the iOS or Android app on phones of responsible employees.
Stripe processes all transactions. Restaurants will be able to use live chat system with pre-made messages to run their communication with guests when it’s needed. Ordering through web will be introduced in the nearest future.
The pricing is fixed — restaurants pay $1 per order. First month for restaurants is free.
Allset works well alongside other restaurant reservation services.
Allset is open for restaurant registration. The service is already launched in private beta. There are now just a few spots left for restaurants to get on board before the official launch. The first batch will have an opportunity to be mentioned in major media resources and will be granted with free online promotion.
