OpenTable requires the Ness app
Also piloting a mobile payment app
Online reservation site OpenTable has announced that it has acquired the app 'Ness'. Launched in 2011, Ness is an app that instead of simply collecting reviews from people, delivers recommended restaurants based on the user's personal preferences and taste.
The online reservation site is also piloting a mobile payment app in San Francisco. The concept of the app is that instead of waiting for their bill, diners are able to pay for their dinner instantly by adding a credit card to their account. The mobile payment option will be an added advantage for OpenTable over Zagat, which has recently had a website makeover after being acquired by Google.
