Launch of the Merchant App
BigDish Plc (LON: DISH), the company which operates a yield management platform for restaurants, is pleased to announce the release of the Company’s new Merchant App for restaurants and the appointment of Sanj Naha to BigDish.
Release of Android and IOS Merchant App
The Company has released a native Android and iOS Merchant App which will allow restaurants to modify any deal on any given day in real time. The App will also allow restaurants to receive push notifications of incoming bookings as well as the ability to alter the capacity and pricing of its deal periods. BigDish currently enables UK restaurants to fill capacity in the ‘last minute’ market and consumers can make bookings up to 48 hours in advance only.
Appointment of Sanj Naha
BigDish is also pleased to announce the appointment of Sanj Naha to the company to assist in developing the UK strategy. Sanj has over 25 years experience in hospitality and over ten years’ experience in hospitality technology. He previously worked for The Fork, a restaurant booking platform that was acquired by TripAdvisor in 2014 for a reported USD 140 million. As Head of B2B Marketing and Sales Enablement, Sanj helped The Fork grow from three to twelve countries and increased the client base using its online reservation software from 11,000 to over 36,000 restaurants in under two years.
Joost Boer, BigDish CEO Commented: “The launch of the Merchant App for restaurants will be a key component of the BigDish platform as it will allow restaurants to modify their deals at any given time. We plan to continue to develop the app and add more sophistication and features progressively with a view to creating a market leading proposition for restaurants and consumers alike.
“This is an exciting time for the company, following on from the beta launch in Bath on 17th September, and I look forward to updating our shareholders on our progress.”
