We at OpenTable are excited to announce a new partnership that’s bringing mobile payments to more restaurants and diners than ever before!
We’ve integrated our OpenTable Payments feature with NCR’s Aloha point-of-sale solution, so our payments product will soon be available to all NCR Aloha customers. It’s a win-win for both sides of the dining equation, as NCR Hospitality President Paul Langenbahn explains: “Consumers can take action and pay when they want instead of waiting, while restaurants can drive loyalty and engagement.”
We’ve been working with District restaurant in San Francisco since April to pilot the integration. Says co-owner Jon D’Angelica: “We’re always looking for ways to improve communication flow between our guests and their server, and we feel enabling them to pay on their smartphones will help do this and create a better customer experience at District.”
Tomer Molovinsky, our marketing lead for OpenTable Payments, went to District last night to try out the new payments integration (and enjoy a great meal, of course). Here’s a step-by-step look at what he experienced as a guest:
