Livebookings and Urbanspoon join forces to offer a world of dining choices on the web and mobile devices
Livebookings, the European leader in real-time reservations and online marketing services for restaurants and Urbanspoon, the leading mobile restaurant discovery application and reservation management system, today announced they have partnered to add Livebookings' reservations capabilities to Urbanspoon’s web and mobile app. Urbanspoon will add 5,000 bookable restaurants in the UK to their website from the Livebookings inventory offering consumers more reservation choices and providing thousands of restaurants with an extra channel to drive covers.
With mobile bookings growing in volume each year, it has never been more important for restaurants to make themselves visible to the thousands of diners looking to their smart phones or tablets for recommendations or deals on where to eat. Through its site and mobile apps, Urbanspoon reaches millions of consumers monthly and is one of the top rated apps on iTunes.
Guy Halfhead, Vice President of Sales, Livebookings said: “In a competitive environment, it is imperative for restaurants to be open to bookings from as many avenues as possible. This new partnership with Urbanspoon is testament to our commitment to securing crucial strategic relationships for our restaurant customers.”
Kara Nortman, Senior Vice President, Consumer Businesses for CityGrid Media, parent company of Urbanspoon, said: “Urbanspoon unlocks the very best dining experiences the UK has to offer, and endless choice and availability has always been something we strive to deliver. Working with Livebookings, Europe’s leading online bookings company for restaurants will increase the richness of our restaurant profiles by offering customers the ability to book reservations instantly.”
