software and hardware to deliver a solution that computerizes restaurant host-stand operations and replaces
traditional pen-and-paper reservation books. It acts as a middle layer for the restaurant and connects the front
desk to the POS system.
It also connects a restaurant with various services across the food-tech ecosystem. inResto provides one
dashboard to manage everything from table reservations, home delivery, takeaways, customer feedback, mobile
payments, and loyalty programs. (www.inresto.com)
