A simple and intuitive
smart wait list
for your

Put your customers at ease and free up your staff's time.

Makes waiting process easier

Our smart wait list lets your guests reserve a spot in line, estimates wait time, and sends out automated text messages to inform them of the wait progress.

Frees up your staff's time

While the guests on the wait list explore the neighborhood or have drinks at the bar, your staff can work on more productive tasks than constantly addressing “How much longer?”

Line moves faster

By sending a message to the guest when they are next in line, the customers are prompted to start making their way back to the host. So when the table is ready, the party is right there waiting.

Orders are quicker

Because we include a link to your menu in the messages, the guests have a chance to take a look at the menu and get an idea of what to order before they sit down.

The host adds a party to the wait list

LineDrop automatically sends a text message with the estimated wait time and a link to the menu.

What our customers say

After our customers used the wait list for a few months, we asked them what benefits it brought to their business. Here is what they said:

"It makes the whole waiting process much easier."

The guests relax and wait in comfort whether they remain nearby or walk around the neighborhood. Once their turn is coming up, a text message prompts the guests get back to the host. The automated text messages are a quick, pleasant, and effective way to communicate. The guests’ and your staff’s anxiety is dramatically reduced making waiting for a table a much easier experience.

"Guests have a piece of mind and are free to walk around the neighborhood or wait in the car."

Knowing that their spot in line is reserved, and that they’ll get a text when their turn is coming up or that their table is ready puts the guests at ease. They don’t need to hover over the host to make sure they are treated fairly.

"The line moves faster"

By sending a message to the guest when they are next in line to be seated, the customers are prompted to start making their way back to the host. So when the table is ready, the party is right there waiting.

"My staff has more time for productive tasks"

While the guests on the wait list explore the neighborhood or have drinks at the bar, your staff can work on more productive tasks than constantly addressing “How much longer?”.

"Orders are quicker"

Because we include a link to your menu in the messages, the guests have a chance to take a look at the menu and get an idea of what to order. The party is ready to order much quicker when they sit down.

"Easy to use, simple product"

Our philosophy is to make the product intuitive and as simple to use as possible and to empower the user to make the final decisions. Human interaction with the wait list dashboard is minimal and quick: there are no tiered menus or lengthy data entry; there are as few taps as possible. All “busy” tasks are quietly and automatically performed by the software in the background.
...

Do more with less.

With the current staff shortages, our smart wait helps your business by creating an environment where guests don’t mind waiting a bit longer for a table and by saving your staff’s time for more productive tasks than constantly addressing “How much longer do I have to wait?”.

Happier guests.

The guests love the convenience. They are much more likely to wait for a busy restaurant knowing that they have a spot in line and that they will get a text when their turn is coming up. It’s nice to be able to walk around or do something else while they wait.
