Make it easy for them with a simpleERB widget!



A recent Micros study of the independent hotel market found that: “….only 6% of the hotels allowed us to make a restaurant reservation during the online booking process. Not all of the hotels had a restaurant and many others that did suggested that the guest could e-mail or phone up to book a table. However, only 6% allowed the guest to book a table online as part of the online room booking process. Again, for hotels that have dining facilities, this is a missed opportunity to ensure that guests eat in the hotel rather than going elsewhere” simpleERB is the answer for independent hotels. Install our booking widget on your site and on your reservation pages and pick up confirmed reservations from your guests.

There has been a buzz around industry blogs and forums recently about
what restaurateurs who had signed up for UrbanSpoon’s RezBook should
do now that OpenTable own RezBook and Urbanspoon and their contracts
are coming to an end.

Given that restaurants who used Rezbook probably used it to escape the
clutches and high fees of OpenTable, it is an interesting question.

Several players are pitching themselves to Rezbook restaurants.

simpleERB offers a unique proposition.

Free. For a year.
For small restaurants, under 20,000 covers per annum it is free forever.

Restaurants can set up and try simpleERB completely free. No credit
card required.

What else makes us stand out as a Rezbook alternative ?

It  works on iPads, Macs, PCs,Android tablets, PC based EPOS systems and Android tablets.

less than an hour.)
It has booking widgets for websites and Facebook pages.
It allows efficient table management, preventing overbooking.
It tracks customers allowing customer relationship management (CRM).
