Restaurant discovery and food ordering app, Zomato, has launched its table reservation service Zomato Book. Users can now book tables via the Zomato app and website.
This comes after Zomato acquired Nextable, in April 2015. Nextable has now been rebranded to Zomato Book and integrated into Zomato’s app and web products to enable a smooth and seamless table booking experience for customers.The service is available at restaurants in multiple cities and languages.
The feature allows users to make, modify and cancel bookings at any given time of the day, even if it is out of restaurant’s operating hours. The app also has an inclusive feature where the bookings are synced with calendars, that helps to send reminders prior to the booking tme.
Zomato Book also gives restaurant managers a bird’s-eye view of what’s going on inside the restaurant enabling them to maximise their seating capacity, estimate time for tables to be vacant, and notify wait-listed customers.
At present, over 500 establishments across 21 cities globally are using Zomato’s table management and booking systems.
Deepinder Goyal, founder & CEO, Zomato said, “Zomato Book integrates with our other products to ultimately give restaurant managers a seamless solution for enhanced consumer delight. Hundreds of businesses around the world – ranging from small to 1000+ seat restaurants, and even theme park resorts – are already using Zomato Book.”
Zomato Book has been built in collaboration with restaurant owners. The company has been aided with Samir Kuckreja’s (ex-President NRAI, ex-CEO Nirulas) insights to help develop a product by receiving feedback from restaurant owners, hosts, managers, and waitstaff.
Since the soft release of Zomato Book in November,Zomato has received over 2.5 million bookings.
