BookingTek, a London, UK-based hospitality software provider, raised £2m in funding.
The backers were not disclosed.
Led by Matthew Stubbs, CEO & Founder, BookingTek provides TableRes, a new smartphone application which allows guests to order and pay at the table in restaurants without interaction with a server.
The app is being provided free-of-charge to medium and large restaurant chains to help manage social distancing by eliminating face to face contact and enabling end to end contactless guest journeys. The app allows full-service restaurant customers to reserve a table and on arrival view the full menu, order and then pay at the table, eliminating contact with staff and physical items like paper menus, bills and credit cards. The app can also be used in hotels wherever food and drink is served. Quick serve and fast casual restaurants can also use the app to allow customers to find the closest location, see the menu, order and pre-pay for delivery, or pick up at the counter or kerbside. TableRes is available as a mobile web app that does not need to be downloaded, and just requires users to scan a QR code. Alternatively, it can be embedded in an existing app or delivered as a standalone iOS and Android app.
