VIVE LA RESERVATIONS A reservation revolution is under way. For too long, operators have been trapped in contracts with online travel agents (OTAs), who ram- page through their database and charge outra- geous commissions. Now is the time for change and ResDiary is at the helm. Since the advent of OTAs, restaurateurs have been told that they need third-party oper- ators to motivate diners to book.

Restaurants have the ability to safeguard themselves against revenue loss by using the tools in their system. ResDiary features, such as ticketing, prepayments and tokenisation, can limit and even eradicate no-shows and cancellations. With an integrated database and restaurant- owned data, venues can gather vital informa- tion to keep in touch with guests and build customer loyalty. Diner information is no lon- ger held at ransom by a third party, but freely available for their own marketing purposes.

ALL FROM THE RESTAURANT’S OWN SITE AND WITH NO COMMISSION While there are many systems with these fea- tures, there are none that offer them all from one place and at a flat fee. Except ResDiary. It’s time for restaurateurs to revolutionise their reservations. It’s time to stop throwing away money on outdated OTAs and it’s time to put the power back into operator’s hands. Vive la restaurant reservation revolution!
