Dubbed Waitlist through Reserve with Google, the new functionality allows diners to get featured on the participating restaurants’ wait lists and also view wait times.

Restaurant guests can get on the waiting list directly from Google Search or Google Maps.

Leveraging DineTime’s application programming interface, the integrated platform provides restaurants with real-time inventory to diners searching for a table.

QSR Automations founder and CEO Lee Leet said: “Our consumer strategy is to partner with the platforms that diners are already using to make dining decisions.

“With this integration, we are capitalising on the way consumers select dining locations so that DineTime restaurants will be served up in those search results.

In addition, the new feature allows customers to receive accurate, restaurant wait times at no additional cost, and assists restaurants convey appreciation and concern for their patrons’ time.
