LOUISVILLE, KY: QSR Automations, provider of guest management solutions and kitchen display technology, announces the addition of online reservations and email marketing with the release of DineTime version 3.0. A browser widget has been added to a restaurant's website that allows guests to get reservations online which then syncs the information with the app in real time.

DineTime, runs on an iPad, and was developed to improve a restaurant's operating efficiency and boost business' profitability by providing wait list management, 2-way SMS texting, a guest book, and other host of distinct operational analytics. 

"Our work for the last 15 years has always been on the forefront of restaurant technology, and this release is no exception," says Lee Leet, QSR Automations President and CEO. "DineTime now streamlines guest management and online reservations in one app. We knew restaurants wanted an alternative to what's out there now--and they want one they can trust."

Adding DineTime 3.0 transforms a restaurant's website into another marketing tool to drive traffic into the restaurant. This will also reduces the jamming of phone lines and gives more time for host staff to focus on guests.

There is an option in the booking process to invite friends to join their party, bringing in more business. It also allows restaurant operators to create and send email marketing campaigns to their guests using the contact information saved in the guest book.

Currently available for a two month trial, the pricing arrangement for the software is based on the number of wait listed and reservation parties a restaurant receives monthly, with unlimited parties capped at $199 per month.
