New Irish app Temptster launched for restaurants and bars
Temptser founder Ollie Fegan
A new Irish developed smartphone app called Temptster has been launched, allowing restaurants to promote high-value offers on same-day bookings, when the restaurant isn’t fully booked, or has had a cancellation.
The Temptster app uses GPS technology to identify the user’s location and display all available offers in nearby bars and restaurants.
Founder and developer Ollie Fegan was previously sales and marketing director for Fegan’s Foodservice in Dublin, and has extensive knowledge of the restaurants and hospitality sector in the city.
He said: “Empty tables and last minute cancellations cost restaurants, clubs, and bars millions of euro every year, and cause havoc to profit margins. Temptster is a cost-effective, real time solution to reaching customers, that takes 20 seconds to activate.”
Food and drinks promotions from bars and clubs will also feature on Temptster, and the new app allows bars and restaurants to host deals for VIP customers exclusively, and to communicate with regular patrons. Restaurant ratings and reviews, as well as foodie news, will also feature.
Fade Street Social, Diep Le Shaker, Carluccios, The Unicorn, Bang, Jaipur, and Salamanca are among over 100 Dublin restaurants currently signed-up to the new app technology.
Temptster is an Enterprise Ireland backed Irish start-up. Users can download the free app now in the app store for immediate access to offers.
