Extensive API’s — An Integrated Restaurant

Connect the host stand to other third-party applications and ConnectSmart Platform components like ConnectSmart Kitchen and Recipes for seamless guest experiences.
These two-way APIs allow other platforms to retrieve information like party details, waitlist and reservation status, and metrics and send data back to ConnectSmart Host.
Integrate to everything from hardware devices like printers and pagers, ConnectSmart platform applications to large guest networks, and reservation platforms like Google and OpenTable.

Keep Guests Informed — Push Statuses Automatically

Communicate table and waitlist statuses directly with guests, with quotes predicated from real-time restaurant activity via 2-way texts and/or with Guest View screens in waiting areas.
Utilize pre-configured texts or conversational 2-way texts to personalize the experience.
Push notifications through your branded app or email to alert guests of available tables, upcoming reservations, or loyalty and rewards info.

Custom Floor Maps and Interface — For Your Restaurant

Design the UI to look precisely like your restaurant with customized background images and multiple floor tabs for additional rooms or seating areas without condensing onto one screen.
Create a layout of Individual tables and customize different arrangements for special occasions like Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day.
Configure each floor plan with multiple preconfigured “shifts” or station configurations, which you can edit on the fly within the application.

“You can tell the software that was created for another purpose and adapted to work in a restaurant, versus what’s been exclusively designed to work in a restaurant. That’s what led me to [ConnectSmart Host]. It might sound like a minor thing,” he says, “but having my restaurant mapped out on the tablet, with my actual plants and decor. It looks like my restaurant, and not just colored blocks like many other systems use. It helps us immeasurably.”
