DineDesk has been named a Hot100 technology company by CIO-Choice in their annual awards ceremony held in December. The prestigious 2014 honour, awarded by Centre of Recognition & Excellence (CORE), is presented in association with KPMG, Microsoft Ventures, Amazon Ventures and Netmagic.
DineDesk offers an online reservations, marketing, guest and table management solution for restaurants. Using DineDesk, a restaurant can receive reservations from Facebook, its own Website, and partner websites. The built-in CRM, Table Management and Guest Management systems assist in seating guests, managing wait lists, and tracking guest preferences and other information, such as allergies.
DineDesk also offers restaurants online marketing tools that can be used to promote a restaurant, including special offers and seasonal menus. Marketing options include social media, email marketing and SMS marketing. Restaurants can use DineDesk on a tablet, mobile phone, laptop, desktop, or any other Internet enabled device. No special hardware or software is required to use the cloud-based system.
“We are proud to win this honoured title of Hot100,” said Clyde Vassou, Marketing Manager of DineDesk. “It showcases our excellence in innovation in restaurant technology and it recognises our hard work in building a scalable company.”
“Our team has put a tremendous amount of work into creating the DineDesk suite of tools,” said Bob Lawson, CEO of Dine Desk. “It is an honour to have an outside authority validate the quality of this work.”
Anoop Mathur, President of CORE, said: “I congratulate DineDesk on winning the elite tag of being Hot100. We had 60 days of campaigning with 26 Jury members to select the winners, who truly deserve the badge of honour. Selection was made based on a company’s technological innovation, team strength, opportunity size, and product value proposition. The Hot100 Awards measures business achievement across the board, championing innovation, enterprise and the people behind the company.”
Since its launch earlier this year, DineDesk has been rapidly growing its base. Currently it is operational in five countries and looking to expand in the North America and Europe. The ease of usage, hassle free setup, flexibility to work on any device and innovative technology has offered restaurants a very affordable alternative to other services providers like OpenTable.
