Firespotter Labs has announced that its waitlist app for iPad, NoshList, has launched for iPhone, iPod Touch and Android platforms. The NoshList app is free for download at noshlist.com, the App Store and on Google Play.
The addition of this mobile functionality to the original iPad app gives restaurant operators the flexibility to use other iOS or Android when preparing to seat diners. The mobile app also removes the barrier of needing an iPad to use the solution by offering the NoshList platform on multiple devices.
"The release of the NoshList iPhone, iPod Touch and Android apps, in addition to our existing iPad app, makes it even easier for a restaurant to run an organized, efficient and measurable wait list that also provides valuable guest and operational analytics," said Craig Walker, CEO and co-founder of Firespotter Labs.
The restaurant waitlist and guest-management solution notifies diners via unlimited free text messaging and automated phone call alerts that their tables are ready, replacing paper lists, microphones and alert buzzers.
NoshList is in use in more than 2,250 restaurants nationwide, including at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Buffalo Wild Wings and more. To date, more than 8 million diners have been seated with NoshList since the company's launch in February 2012.
"Our goal is to make NoshList a simple and clean experience for the restaurant operator, while improving the waiting experience for restaurant patrons. Judging by our numbers, we're exceeding these goals," Walker said.
In addition to NoshList, Firespotter Labs offers NoshList Premium for $49 per month, per restaurant. Premium features include two-way text messaging, table number assignments, in-app statistics, designated local phone numbers and 30-day analytics. The premium features are only currently available for the iPad app and on the website, and will soon be added to the new mobile version.
