Ever wish finding out the wait time at a restaurant was as easy as looking up its website? A new startup rolling out of Bizdom is making that possible.
just launched a software plug-in that allows a business to broadcast its wait times for service in real-time to their website, mobile app or digital signage. It's available for eateries and any other retail or professional service business that might have a line.
"It's a new way of allowing the consumers to get to their end goal more efficiently," Zachary Klima, co-founder & CEO of WaitTime
The 4-month-old startup launched is software over the holidays at a handful of restaurants in downtown Detroit, including Buffalo Wild Wings
, 24 Grille
, Fountain Bistro
and a variety of locations in Greektown.
Klima started WaitTime
with Craig Bisson. The partners have been friends since they went to high school at Birmingham Brother Rice. Bisson currently works a Google and Klima works at Bedrock Realestate Services
. They enrolled in Bizdom
The pair are marketing WaitTime as a software service with a free two-month trial to start. The idea is the software will provide the digital wait times and also an analysis of how customers go through a business, how long they wait, etc.
"We give that restaurant a report card," Klima says.
