New App for Restaurants Allows Customer Communication

If you’re one of the roughly 90 million people who own an iPhone, or any other smartphone, you’ve likely used it to search for local restaurants. While many well-known chains have created mobile versions of their websites, including their menu, location and contact information, Hermosa Beach-based company MenusGoMobile has created a new, affordable mobile technology for the hospitality industry.

This new, one-of-a-kind marketing tool allows independently-owned restaurants and bars to integrate their menu, specials, featured items, contact information (with GPS locator), photos, videos and even a built-in tip calculator into the application. The app also comes complete with a social networking portal that allows restaurateurs the ability to share their specials and featured items through social media networks like Facebook and Twitter. Although this all sounds fairly innovative and convenient, the ability of businesses to communicate directly with customers via push notifications is the most unique feature of the app. Any hospitality business that downloads the application will be able to send messages to MenusGoMobile-subscribed customers. These customers will also be able to send push notifications in order to change their app in real-time via their CMS.

Pinnacle Hospitality Systems has outfitted numerous hospitality businesses with their award-winning point of sale systems like POSitouch POS, integrated with iControl software. Pinnacle has recently debuted a new handheld POS terminal, a nod to the growing popularity of mobile hospitality technology. iControl Enterprise offers the smart iControl POS integrated software that allows users to quickly and easily download and access financial information directly from POSitouch. The convenience of mobile hospitality technology continues to rapidly evolve, and at iControl, we are proud to continue to offer our convenient product to customers.
