FastPassNow software brings a unique and fresh approach to developing applications to improve restaurant operations and guests’ dining experience. Before developing software features and enhancements, the FastPastNow team interviewed restaurant owners, managers, hosts and servers to understand specific problems, what is mission critical, how these problems are currently being addressed, the differences among restaurants, what systems are being used, which features were important to their success and solution priority. This approach has resulted in a new seating management product (SeatingManagerTM) that is being recognized as the next generation solution among competitive products. SeatingManager is a complete solution that optimizes table availability, party size, guest seating preferences, walk-ins, waitlist and reservation arrival patterns and guest communications using their mobile phones.

“After participating in similar competitive startup investment programs in Silicon Valley California, the Alabama Launchpad program is the most professionally managed and my best experience. The $70,000 Grant we received is providing the additional resources to grow our business that was not possible through self-funding alone.”
