The restaurant seating management service NoWait has announced an offer to clients of Rezbook, which was acquired by OpenTable, to switch from the Rezbook platform to the NoWait platform for a six-month free trial.
While NoWait can be used by restaurants to manage reservations, its primary function is to help restaurants manage their walk-in customers, according to a news release. Diners who walk into a restaurant using NoWait are able to track their place on the wait list from their mobile phones and communicate directly with the restaurant about their party.
In the first quarter of 2014, NoWait plans to launch a consumer-facing app nationally that allows diners to view wait times of nearby restaurants and remotely add their name to the wait list.
"OpenTable acquiring Rezbook left some customers who were looking for alternatives stranded," said NoWait CEO Ware Sykes. "We're giving these customers this special offer to let them know that there are better options, and to make that transition easier."
