MONTREAL, April 3, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Tuango is expanding again! This Montreal-based company has dominated the online deal space in Québec since its 2010 inception. The team is now launching RESERVA (reserva.ca), an easy-to-use restaurant reservation platform perfect for merchants and foodies alike. Users can book their seating times directly online and enjoy up to 30% off at top restaurants in Montréal and shortly in other major Québec cities, while merchants can drive traffic to their restaurant at their convenience by using flexible pricing.

NO COUPON REQUIRED AND MOBILE-FRIENDLY

This new free service is also available for iPhone and Android smartphones through the latest update of the Tuango App. This integration will allow Tuango subscribers to seamlessly shop for offers or book their next restaurant on the spot enjoying 15% to 30% off depending on the time slot selected. Once at the restaurant, the discount is automatically applied on customer's bill without any coupon required.

ADVANTAGES FOR RESTAURANTS

Tuango Reserva is a marketing solution for restaurant managers looking to fill their empty tables. By pairing their open tables with discounts, they can control and manage the traffic to their restaurant when they need it the most. Plus, the automated reminder service built into the reservation platform helps reduce no-shows. This new service is possible through the collaboration with Guestful, a free online cloud-based reservation platform specifically designed for restaurants.

"Thanks to this partnership, the restaurants will have access to their dashboard on their desktop, smartphone or tablet to view all reservations made through Reserva. The new platform is as easy to use for consumers as it is for restaurant managers", adds Nicole Tarazi, Director of Sales and Marketing at Tuango, Reserva project leader.

LAUNCH CONTEST

From now through April 30, 2014, Reserva users can book their first reservation and get the chance to win their meal ($150 value). Five winners will be picked at random on May 1, 2014. Prizes are for Quebec residents of 18 years or older and are not transferable.
