SevenRooms Integrates with Google to Offer Direct Restaurant Reservations
Reserve button now live on Google Search, Maps, and the Assistant for SevenRooms dining clients
NEW YORK (OCTOBER 25, 2018) – SevenRooms, an all-in-one reservation, seating and guest management platform, today announced its integration with Google, offering dining partners the ability to take reservations directly via Google Search, Maps, and the Assistant. With this direct integration, Google now has access to any table inventory available via a SevenRooms client’s reservation widget, enabling guests to book directly from within Google Search, Maps, and the Assistant.
SevenRooms’ latest integration enables a better booking experience for guests and more filled seats for restaurants. Using this Google integration, restaurants are now able to take reservations with no cover fees, capturing guest data including email and phone number, helping them to build deeper relationships to fuel more personalized service and marketing. Additionally, using SevenRooms’ analytics tools, restaurants can track which reservations come through each marketing channel – whether that’s their own website, Instagram, Google or Facebook, among others.
“The guests of today are increasingly searching for reservations online, and the first place they search is Google,” said Joel Montaniel, CEO & Founder of SevenRooms. “With this direct integration, we are giving our restaurant partners the tools they need to capture these guests directly – without per cover fees – during their search. Using SevenRooms, our clients are able to reduce acquisition costs, boost reservations, and capture better data on their guests from the moment they book — enabling them to offer better, more personalized experiences back to their guests.”
“The SevenRooms integration with Google is already having a major impact on our business,” said Stephen Maly, Director of Hospitality at In Good Company. “With direct reservations through Google, we’re capturing our guests at the moment they search for our business and have intent to book. We not only get to own the guest data, including their email address, but we also pay no cover fees and save money in the process. It’s a win-win all around.”
