Frequently Asked Questions
What happens when the internet goes down?
SmartWAIT app is cloud-based, a reliable internet connection is required. If the internet is down, you are unable to send any text notifications to your customers.
Your online reservations will continue to be active and once the internet is restored, your tablet will sync.
We do offer a 100% up-time guarantee internet service via our SmartCONNECT in order to solve this problem.
Is there any cover fees for wait list or reservations?
No, we do not charge any fees for cover fees, text messages or other fees.
Your monthly fee is all that you pay regardless of covers.
Does SmartWAIT integrate to POS?
Yes, currently SmartWAIT is deeply integrated into SmartPOS which means once you seat John on table 14 from the SmartWAIT app, SmartPOS knows table 14 is John.
Once John pays and the check is closed, SmartWAIT will automatically know that table 14 is available. You do not need to have someone walk around the restaurant and mark tables as open like the traditional systems like OpenTable, Resi, NoWait and etc.
Does SmartWAIT show customer data to hostess?
Yes, once you type in the area code and the next 3 digits of the phone number, SmartWAIT will automatically find the customer and display the customer Name, VIP status, Allergies and etc so your hostess can personalize the service to each individual customer.
Can I limit online reservations?
Yes! You can easily limit how far into the future you can accept reservations, the Maximum number of parties per reservation, and maximum reservations per any time slot
Can I block certain days or hours?
Yes, you can block an entire day or block specific time slots so online reservations are unavailable during these times, however, your staff can override this by making the reservation via SmartWAIT app

Every day, you can also see your reservations for that day. You can also view the reservations for any day in the future directly from the SmartWAIT app.
