5. Text Messaging


We provide the means for your Hostess/Receptionist/Service station to send text messages to your customers. We also give the customer the opportunity to text back! This is an optional feature and is controlled by the merchant whether or not they desire this functionality. An example of this may be if the customer sends the text message "Bar" in reply. The hostess will see this message and know that the customer wants to remain in the bar area. Meanwhile the customer has received a friendly message that says " We have received your request to remain seated in our bar area. Please enjoy your meal!" Or, the customer may text "Status" to get an updated wait time or appointment time reminder. You can decide all this!
