The Parable Restaurant Diary for iOS

By The Parable App Free

Developer's Description

The Parable is a full featured reservation system. Capable of table management, guest database, wait lists, online bookings, sms and email confirmations and it works offline, secured by the cloud.

Built to suit all restaurants, from the small local through to the big chains of the world. Designed to be reliable, concise, agile, scalable and uncomplicated.

The Parable removes the complications of handling a paperback diary and builds a database of customers and reservations, recording customer preferences and attendance which can be used to drive business time and time again to people you know that use and promote your business.

Key Features of The Parable:

System works completely offline, and backs up to The Parable server when an internet connection is available, so your reservations are not only always accessible, but also secure.

Your customers details, preferences and attendance history are all stored, allowing you to better serve your clientele.

The Parable is designed to replace a paperback diary. Our daily notes and reminder feature allows you to type messages as you would write them in your paperback, ie call John regarding menu on the 25th October.

We understand that all caf and restaurants are different. You may have many small tables which are moved around or joined together to suit your reservations, others may have a set table layout and others may have function areas. The Parable easily handles all table management scenarios.

We also know that different reservations require different levels of information, our reservation system allows you to add attachments (add photos of a table setup or attach a document with a running sheet), and even place a booking as a tentative.

Daily bookings can be sorted by time, name, table area/ table number and group size. This feature assists you to seat your guests and setup your tables. Should you choose to print your guestlist, AirPrint is enabled.

Waitlist feature is enabled, so even if you have a full house, you can still turnover tables.

The Parable can receive bookings online and confirm reservations manually and automatically by way of email and sms.

The Parable has subscription options (no contracts) which are scalable to the size of your business so even if you are just starting out you still have access to all that the Parable has to offer. The first month is free of charge.

We know what it's like to run a busy restaurant and caf. We do it every day. So we know first hand the inefficiencies of the paper reservation diary. But we also know the benefits.

The Parable is designed to take the things you love about the "old school" reservation diary, while solving the things you hate. So you can stop trying to do a million things at once and let The Parable handle some of it for you.
