Ziconix chosen to showcase its technology at Cambridge Wireless – Future of Wireless Conference
Local Secrets has recently launched the first online restaurant booking system which uses Ziconix’s revolutionary in2vox technology developed in Cambridge. Although online booking for a few select restaurants utilising computer based systems has been available for some time, most restaurants cannot be booked online, as like most small businesses they only utilise the telephone to take bookings.
Ziconix have solved this problem for all small businesses by automating the placing of a voice call to the restaurant when the user selects to make a booking online. The restaurant simply accepts the booking by pressing keys on the phone and the system completes the process by providing the name and contact number of the customer. If the restaurant declines at busy times and the customer has selected a second choice, the system will automatically try the next on the list to secure a table. The customer is advised of the booking result on the webpage, by email or by a premium rate SMS message if requested. “No more searching through yellow pages for another number” says Matt Sims, Marketing Director of Ziconix, who made the presentation at the conference. “It has been a real privilege for us to be selected to present at the conference, as we are seeking route to market partners to exploit the technology in the many areas it can be used for. Steve Sims, CTO of Ziconix says” that Local Secrets has been key to the development of the system, as our lead customer, and working closely together we have been able to specify the system to suit the needs of the restaurant industry and the customer. Although the technology is applicable to other small businesses, we believe that the restaurant sector is one of the largest immediate opportunities for our technology.” About Ziconix Ltd Ziconix Ltd is a Cambridge based technology business that is focussed on integrating all elements of the technology to cover the broad range of application areas.
