    Okay so i've been googling for a couple of hours trying to find a good text message restaurant paging system.

    I want the system to be hosted on my own server so that I can charge the client for access to it. So far I have not come up with anything.

    Here are some sites that I have found that offer the service but it's not self hosted.

    http://nowaitapp.com (Native for iPhone and iPad) It's really cool.
    http://www.turnstar.com (Hosted Service Looks like its iPad friendly)
    http://www.readyping.com (Hosted Service)
    http://tablesready.com (Hosted Service)
    http://www.recessapp.com (iPhone app)
    http://www.sundropmobile.com (Hosted Service)



    I have also found an open source software you can install on your own server called MySeat its located at http://myseat.us (I really like this solution however it is email ONLY so far) But it is hook and plugin friendly. So developers that are familiar with the different apis (Twilio, Clickatell) could develop something for it.

    So has anyone came up with another solution or workaround to offer our clients text reservation and notification service?

    Would love to hear what you guys are doing! Thanks for any pointers! :eek:

    I'm looking around over there. I know that open vbx exists and theres also that click to call wp plugin. There's even that wp predator solution.

    What i'm looking for is more a mobile reservation system that the hostess can use on iPad and send text to customers when their table is ready. This exists over there? I'll continue searching but have not found anything yet. :(
