Bookatable is the latest platform to partner with Flypay through the latter’s Flyt technology.

Flyt is designed to enable restaurants to get a more accurate read on how quickly diners eat in a restaurant, so queues can be managed better.

Through its initial integration with Flyt, Bookatable will be able to integrate with existing restaurant EPOS systems to give the restaurant end-to-end insight into each customer’s journey, from making a booking, waiting to be seated, to serving of food and paying the bill. The technology will enable front of house teams to monitor when tables will become available.

Nick Brown, product director at Bookatable, said: “Flypay’s vision for Flyt is truly inspirational and provides a great vehicle for our future goals around openness and collaboration. Innovation is key to our business model, and we’re delighted to offer our partner restaurants a significant upgrade to our Electronic Reservation Book products through smart integrations such as Flyt. We plan to work hand-in-hand with Flypay to build new consumer-facing technology, which will continue to innovate and elevate the customer experience.”

Tom Weaver, chief executive of Flypay, said: “Bookatable powers over 15,000 restaurants and drives millions of covers to its partner restaurants each month. We are of course excited to introduce the Flyt platform into their technology mix. Flyt unifies the technologies that operators already use to form different parts of the customer journey. By creating a platform which flows seamlessly for Bookatable, we have been able to ensure they are able to provide their restaurant partners with a greatly improved table management system.”
