Dineout’s flagship product is inResto, a comprehensive solution that helps restaurants to recognise their customers, personalise their offering and re-engage with their customers. InResto combines proprietary software and hardware to deliver a solution that computerises 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.
The system 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.
