Improve Restaurant Efficiency with Automated Booking for Group Dining


If your restaurant serves mid to large-sized dining groups of about 10-20 guests, then you know you could use a way to improve restaurant efficiency. Despite their large revenue opportunity, these mid- to large-party reservations can be a real pain point to your overall operational flow. 

If you want a better solution to be group-friendly, technology can help. TripleseatDirect provides your restaurant with an automated event booking system that is especially useful and makes things super easy. Now you can drive these bookings online into a well-thought-out event management system to enhance your productivity.

How an automated booking solution organizes group dining business

When thinking about ways to improve restaurant efficiency and better handling of group dining requests, it’s all about how your technology takes burdens away. Streamlining your front-of-house processes and adding the convenience of an automated booking system will align your staff with your customers. You will be giving time back and making everyone happier! It’s a win-win!

TripleseatDirect is a robust feature that makes booking dine-in events more streamlined. Your team sets up parameters for mid- or large-sized dining availability, specific tables and spaces, calendars, menus, and pricing, including payment processing. You can create multiple TripleseatDirect forms specific to event types to collect direct bookings from customers and reserve their mid to large parties. Your team accepts the reservation, and that’s it! Done and done! 

Efficiency allows for more hospitality 

There is no better time to use TripleseatDirect to let your customers book their own private parties and group dining events. After all, your customers want to be able to self-book. By eliminating your staff’s need to manage every event booking manually, your team will have more time to provide added hospitality. Customers will appreciate the attention to detail and the effort you put into making their event unforgettable. Bring on more customer loyalty!

Automated booking solution provides menu optimization

Technology truly enables you to learn about your business. By using TripleseatDirect for these mid- to large-group bookings, you control the menus that work for your business. Perhaps you offer a la carte or maybe family style or prix fixe. By collecting your group dining bookings this way, you’ll learn which menu items are the most popular and which are the most profitable.

Tech makes it easy to promote group dining

Create multiple TripleseatDirect lead forms that can manage various event types and market these on your website, social media accounts, or EventUp listing. You control what you allow your customers to choose from within their booking: including available spaces, guest count, menu, food and beverage menu, and deposit payment. All you have to do is accept the reservation and grow your event revenue. It’s an easy way to market mid-sized dining events.

Boost your sales during slower times

Attracting customers during traditionally slow times at your restaurant can be challenging. Your table seating process will be more orderly and advantageous if you offer a self-serve booking. Hosting these larger parties to accommodate a birthday party or a corporate gathering can give people a reason to choose your restaurant over others. You’ll be able to showcase your restaurant in a whole new light. Before you know it, it will lead to a steady stream of bookings and referrals and bring in more revenue for your business.
