Benefits in Restaurant Service
Guest pagers make great first impressions by giving patrons confidence that they will not get lost in the crowd during rush hours. They are the simplest and most cost effective method to be sure guests are called in a timely manner. The PA noise from repeatedly calling guests is eliminated and the dining experience is improved. Instead of numerous hosts trying to locate waiting parties, guests are instantly alerted and then return with flashing pagers so you know exactly who's paged.
With guest paging, patrons feel committed to staying at your restaurant so there are fewer walk-aways. Table turns are increased as seating time is reduced and your bottom line is improved.
- Locate waiting guests quickly and economically.
- Eliminate overcrowded waiting areas that make customers want to go elsewhere.
- Prevent calling mispronounced names on the PA system.
- Enhance the atmosphere of your waiting area by reducing noise.
- Improve overall guest satisfaction.
- Reduce wait time and turn more tables.
- Commit patrons to waiting and reduce walk-aways.
- Coaster shapes encourage drink purchases while waiting
No installation or programming required: Our guest pagers arrive at your location ready to use. Just set the devices where they belong, plug the power supplies into your wall sockets and you're good to go.
Benefits in All-Purpose Service
Restaurant guest pager systems are also great all-purpose local area pagers. These systems are also commonly used in healthcare, childcare, customer traffic control and countless other situations where there is a need to make waiting more manageable for staff and more comfortable for guests:
- Patient paging in hospitals and clinics.
- Parent paging in church day care centers.
- Guest paging at day spas.
- Customer paging at auto repair centers.
- Guest paging at golf courses and clubs.
- Staff paging at factories and offices.
- Student registration traffic control.
LRS guest pagers are great for use in hospitals and medical offices and are widely used for such. Pagers help assure patient privacy because patient names do not have to be called out in public as their turns come up. It makes waiting more comfortable by allowing patients to wander or wait in the cafeteria with a cup of coffee.
Automobile service is another great application for LRS guest pagers, as they allow customers to wander nearby, up to a mile away, until their cars are ready.
Coaster pagers are perfect for handing out to the general public because they are extremely tough, hard to ignore and just awkward enough so that people don't take them home by accident. But please note that you are not limited to using the coaster-style pagers shown here-- you can also choose other styles of pagers such as belt-worn or paddle style. (See the photos below. Optional pager styles are priced differently- please call for quotes on custom systems.)
LRS transmitters have the range and power to be effective in large office buildings. Transmitter repeaters are available for situations that require extra coverage.
How Guest Paging Works
When guests arrive, they are greeted by a host and given a pager. The host writes the pager number and seating preferences on paper. Pagers double as drink coasters and suggest drink purchases while waiting in in the lounge.
When tables are ready, the host enters the pager ID into the transmitter keypad and the pager flashes and vibrates. (Flashing modes are programmable from the restaurant.) Guests notice the coaster and return to the host, who then shows them to their table.
This starter kit includes 15 guest pagers. This is an ideal quantity for many non-restaurant uses. Most restaurant systems start with 15 or 20 pagers. Additional individual pagers may be purchased separately and we also offer larger systems (see the next section).
You can determine your restaurant pager requirements by taking your longest wait time (in minutes) and dividing by 1.5. For example, if wait time is 30 minutes, you need about 20 pagers. We don't advise handing out pagers for waits longer than one hour.

Optional Manager Paging
During peak times, managers are very tough to locate for phone calls, emergencies, etc. With manager paging, your hostess can quickly send instant messages to the roaming manager using the same guest paging keypad. Manager pagers are not included in the basic system. The transmitter upgrade to the T7470 is required.
Transmitter Upgrade to T7470 Freedom Model
An upgrade from the MT to the T7470 Freedom transmitter is available that offers more range, programing features, manager paging and texting or cell phone paging via internet connection.
If your facility is located in a mall, shopping center or campus, pagees may need greater flexibility so they can shop or wander while they wait, and may want a call or text on their cell phone. Guests are handed pagers if they prefer to wait close by, or with optional cell phone paging, they can give their cell phone number so they are called or texted instead. Cell phone paging uses a pre-recorded message voice message or text from your restaurant.
Cell phone paging is great when you are located near other restaurants where guests tend to put their names on multiple lists and see who calls them first.
Cell phone voice paging or texting requires an internet connection to the T7470 unit. Voice or text message units are available in unit block of various sizes that are sold separately.
