If you’re a restaurant owner that often has a lot of customers waiting to be seated, then you might want to upgrade your paging system to ReadyPing, an SMS-based paging system.

The good thing about it is that you don’t need to purchase any new hardware to run ReadyPing. It runs on typical a computer and, through the internet, sends an SMS to the concerned customer informing them that their table is ready. There’s a flat rate of US$35 per month that provides you with unlimited SMS pings to your clients.

Aside from restaurants, ReadyPing will also come in handy where long lines and queues are frequently found. Unfortunately, it’s only available in the US at the moment, but we’re optimistic that if the restaurant industry and other businesses pick up on this latest innovation, they’ll eventually expand elsewhere outside the country.
