“It fully supports our ambition to increase touchpoints with a fast-growing customer base.”
ResDiary provides venues with a high-end table management solution, using technology that optimises their food and beverage revenues and helps control operational costs.
Its yield and channel management tools help restaurateurs maximise revenues, while limiting booking fees by controlling availability displayed on third-party channels.
