Have you ever been to a restaurant where they tell you that there will be approximately a 30 minute wait before they will be able to be seated at a table? It is very likely that this has happened to nearly everyone. There is not a single person on this earth that has never gone out to eat at a restaurant at some point in their life time. If you take a moment to think back to the last time that you were at a restaurant and waiting to be seated, were you ever handed a guest pager? A guest pager is a small hand held device that will either just vibrate or it will vibrate and have lights that will flash. This is the wireless device that will tell guests that their table is ready for them.
The reason that the guest pagers are put into place for the residents is to make sure that the customers are aware when their table is ready. As you may already know, when the customers find out that the restaurant that they are wanting to eat at does not have a table that is ready for them they will be handed the guest pager. At this point in time the guests will then either walk out of the restaurant to wait outside, wait in the waiting area of the restaurant, go to the bathroom, or even go sit at the bar to wait for their guest pager to go off. When the restaurant has had enough time to find an open table, clean the table off, and then reset it the staff members will then communicate with the hostess that they have a table that is ready for that particular guest’s party. The hostess will then be required to do her job to make sure that this message is properly communicated with the guests that he or she knows is waiting for their table.
The hostess has more than likely had a proper training session about what they should do in order to make sure that they are communicating properly. The restaurants in today’s society are turning to a new source of technology that they are using in their restaurants. This new system is known as the guest pager system. This is a system that is being used to inform guests at a restaurant that their table is ready for them to be seated at. Therefore, if you think back to the example about the hostess at the restaurant, the hostess will then be faced with the option to set off the guest pager through the guest pager system.
The guest pager system that is set up at the hostess station has a communication signal that is sent to the digital, cordless, guest pager that was given to the guest upon arrival by the hostess. At this point in time is when the guest pager will go off and begin to either vibrate and or flash a light. The color of the light that usually flashes is either red or green.
