Eat Out, a South African guide to food, has launched a new app.
The new app will allow users to have access to local directory of restaurants to browse, review and book.
Alongside the app, Eat Out has built a bookings platform, designed with the needs of local restaurants in mind.
The Eat Out app means putting over 6 000 restaurants – South Africa’s largest restaurant directory – into the hands of potential diners.
The app finds restaurants nearby using geo-location technology. Additionally, it allows users to bookmark restaurants, view a number of restaurant menus, view nearby specials and share reservation details.
The team created the restaurant bookings platform by engaging with restaurants in an aim to identify their needs. There are two modes available for restaurants: Lite and Pro. Lite allows restaurants to take bookings on request and can be used in conjunction with any other booking system.
Pro makes instant bookings possible via the Eat Out app. It aims to enable restaurants to streamline all reservations, set up sittings, configure tables and send notifications to members of staff.
The Eat Out app is free and available for iPhone and Android. Users can download it from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
