OpenTable App Integrates with NCR Aloha Point-of-Sale Solution to Bring Mobile Payments to More Diners

We are pleased to join with NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction technologies in announcing that NCR has integrated OpenTable’s ‘Pay with OpenTable’ app with the industry-leading NCR Aloha point-of-sale solution via the NCR Hosted Application Protocol Interface (API) platform. What this means for diners is that NCR Hosted APIs help provide OpenTable app users with a secure, convenient payment option.

The NCR Hosted API Platform is a cloud-based gateway that allows third parties to integrate, maintain, and deploy their services across NCR’s installed base of POS systems. This cloud offering allows payments through the OpenTable app to be tightly integrated into the NCR Aloha point-of-sale solution.

To pay with OpenTable, diners who book at participating restaurants simply add a credit card in the OpenTable app before they dine and then view and pay their check on their smartphone. There’s no separate app to download; no codes to enter; and no scanning or barcodes involved. Diners who pay with OpenTable simply get up and go whenever they’re ready.

“The integration with the NCR Aloha point-of-sale makes the OpenTable mobile payment experience even more widely available to our customers,” said our Chief Executive Officer Matt Roberts. “We’re excited about working together to power a payment and dining experience that is intuitive and elegant for both diners and restaurants.”Continue Reading

OpenTable Experience Now on Apple Watch

We’re thrilled to announce our app is one of the first available for Apple Watch. A natural extension of the popular OpenTable iPhone app and Pay with OpenTable feature, it offers an innovative and convenient way for diners to engage with OpenTable while they’re on the go.

At a glance, the OpenTable app for Apple Watch reminds diners of upcoming reservations, shows them how to get there, and keeps them on time with an elegant countdown interface. The app also notifies diners when they’re dining at a participating Pay with OpenTable restaurant and prompts them to view and pay their check with a couple of taps of their OpenTable app for iPhone, which is integrated with Apple Pay.
