Introduction to Mobile Apps for Restaurants

In this article we will reveal the process of the integration of mobile technologies for restaurants, namely such items like mobile application development and adaptive restaurant website design.

A restaurant is a place where we can relax after our busy day. A fast lifestyle leaves us little time for organizing our leisure time in a restaurant. We have too little time for table reservations, formation of pre-orders and other nuances. Also, the mobile device (smartphone, tablet)we have is not an adequate assistant for the user. On the other hand, according to statistics, a modern person uses a smartphone more than 127 times a day. There is a good question: how to use this feature in the restaurant business effectively?

Mobile technologies in the restaurant can be integrated in two ways. The first way is an organization of work inside the restaurant (electronic menu, system of electronic service, etc.). The second way is to focus on visitors’ involvement in the activity of the place. Perfect way to do this is to provide users mobile apps for restaurants or at least take care about adaptive restaurant website design that adapts design to the size of the device, though the user does not need to look closely and to zoom in on each interesting site section.

We'd like to consider about a few cases of the practical implementation of restaurant apps for customers in terms of the popularr Ukrainian restaurants “Reporter” and “Coast”.

Here we share the most popular features of apps for restaurants and cases of its implementation:

These basic functions of restaurant apps can be expanded and supplemented by your request. For example, it might be the ability to make an online order, the connection with the POS system and payment through the mobile app.
