(In)Touch Network Launches Eat(In)Touch, the Ultimate Dine Advisor for UK Customers(June 11, 2012)
(PRWEB UK) 11 June 2012
(In)Touch Network Limited announces the launch of its first project - Eat(In)Touch - the unique cloud service for locating, choosing and booking restaurants all over the UK. Its all set to be the dine advisor for customers looking for quality dining experiences in their chosen price range.
The Eat(In)Touch dine advisor mission is to provide the most reliable, up-to-the minute lowdown on the UK dining scene, both by sharing expert reviews of the restaurants that offer the best balance of food quality, service, atmosphere and value for money, and by engaging customers to share their own dining experiences and rate restaurants.
Eat(In)Touch is targeted at active, modern socialisers; gadget and technology-lovers; and decision-makers who evaluate their time and want to live life to the full.
Eat(In)Touch has been developed as a restaurant locating, choosing and booking solution for all the main platforms in the UK. Customers can access the service and their personal data by logging in to the cloud system from every type of device.
On 1 June, 2012, http://www.eatintouch.com beta site is opened to the public, soon followed by iPad and iPhone Eat(In)Touch applications that are currently in their active testing stage. (In)Touch Network announces their launch in August, 2012.
Eat(In)Touch has been created both for UK residents and travellers. User-friendly searching and localising functionality allows customers to search restaurants all over the UK using an interactive map or pinch-to-zoom technology that allows adjustment to an area within a chosen number of minutes journey - by car or on foot. Customers can view the list of restaurants within any area, wherever they are, or wherever they travel in the UK.
When searching a restaurant, customers can use a range of filters, such as Cuisine and Good for. Eat(In)Touch has invented a unique My Criteria filter, where customers can set their restaurant requirements regarding Food quality, Wine & Cocktail range, Service level, Interior & Decor, Scenery and Price range, using sliders that have rating-based values.
Intuitive and user-friendly website navigation helps customers to choose from over 19,000 UK restaurants and coffee houses that are currently on Eat(In)Touch - with more being continually added and being expected to reach 21,000 mark by September, 2012. Eat(In)Touch is proud to provide their customers with access to the most complete and comprehensive restaurant lists and over 3,500 special offers. Most popular restaurants are directly bookable from the system.
Eat(In)Touch offers exclusive functionality: when customers choose a specific date and time, they can view only the list of restaurants with available tables that match their criteria. This avoids customer disappointment and time wasting that can happen when a restaurant is chosen first, only to find that its fully booked. Once a booking has been taken, instant confirmation is emailed straight back to the customer, and the table reservation is guaranteed to be honoured.
Since May 2011, Eat(In)Touch experts have been inspecting and evaluating restaurants across the UK. With the launch of Eat(In)Touch this knowledge is accumulated and shared in the special 'Gold Combo' category of recommended restaurants that balance high-quality food and service with reasonable prices.
Eat(In)Touch is set to be the most reliable resource for eating out in the UK as it will benefit from constant, up-to-date customer insights, reviews and ratings. These insights are checked by the experts who carry out anonymous inspections in restaurants and update the Gold Combo category. Eat(In)Touch ensures that recommendations exclude self-promotion by restaurants.
The aim of Eat(In)Touch is to develop and create a unique system of restaurant ratings based on expert and customer opinion, and gather the most trusted content. Before an opinion or review can be shared on Eat(In)Touch, a customer first needs to register and agree to the review acceptance guidelines. To avoid reviews that are overly emotional and lacking in content, every one is subject to a conformity check and only after approval from the Eat(In)Touch team is a review published.
Eat(In)Touch will become the must-have resource for the true, up-to-the-minute lowdown on restaurants. Customers will be encouraged to share their opinions instantly - submitting reviews, ratings and photos during their actual mealtime, since Eat(In)Touch considers the latest, freshest rates and reviews to be the most valuable.
Eat(In)Touch technological power is based on a cluster of eight top-ranked servers, located in Germany in the Hetzner Online AG hosting data centre the worlds leading hosting provider. These servers form a cloud system that can resist powerful loads, is not limited by the number of customers served at one moment, and has the ability to increase capacity at short notice. Such a powerful server platform helps to provide the highest standards of B2C products that include high loading, quick system response and reliability. Customers personal data is secured by SSL certified connection with 1024 bit encoding.
Further updates: (In)Touch Network Ltd announces Eat(In)Touch iPad and iPhone App launch in August 2012.
In autumn 2012, restaurants in France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands and Spain can also be booked through Eat(In)Touch and localised versions of the website will be added under .co.uk, .fr, .it, .de, .nl, .es, domain names. The multilingual Eat(In)Touch App will also be released in local App Stores.
