A Brief Look at Restaurant Paging Systems

By Cora Bullock Subscribe to RSS | March 23rd 2012 | Views:

First used in restaurants back in the late 80s, restaurant paging systems have spared countless diners from spending a lot of time standing in lines just to wait for them to be seated. Paging systems allowed restaurants to keep track of their customer’s seating orders without crowding their restaurants.

Here’s how a restaurant paging system works: customers are given restaurant pagers after taking an order. The guests can take the pagers anywhere while they’re waiting for the food; they can go to the bar and share a drink while the food is being prepared, take a quick smoke outside, or just wander around. When a table becomes available, a waiter can signal the pagers, which will then light up or emit a tone to notify the guests that they’re ready to be seated. The guests finally return the pagers upon getting to the table.

Paging does more than just avoid crowded waiting lines. A paging system can save waiters a lot of time since they don’t have to look for the guests just to call out their names whenever a table becomes available. This means waiters can focus on serving their customers and taking more orders. For a business manager, a paging system greatly helps in optimizing restaurant processes and maximizing manpower.

Restaurant paging systems use paging units of all size and shapes. Some pagers are specially designed to fit the restaurant theme. For example, a restaurant that specializes on serving chicken may use paging units that look like small, cartoonish chickens. Regardless of the design, paging systems are designed with portability in mind, so guests don’t have to carry bulky gadgets while waiting for a table.

Because a restaurant paging system allows guests to move around while waiting for their table, customers won’t feel the stress associated with crowding and waiting in long lines at the lobby. Customers are less likely to walk out of the restaurant frustrated and with an empty stomach and restaurant owners don’t lose income.

Restaurant paging systems are constantly evolving. Some of the more recent models have extra features such as blinking lights to help guests notice them better, and some systems even have units with mini-games integrated into them to keep guests entertained. Other systems take advantage of compatibility with other devices, contacting the guests thru their mobile phones instead of handing out separate paging units.
