Chris Butler commented on Chris Leo's blog post 3 Ways To Increase Revenues Using SMS (Text Message) Marketing In Your Restaurant
"Chris, I totally understand we are discussing this within an 'opt-in' situation, but what is acceptable after opt-in can be fuzzy in the mind of the guest. I don't think that they think of opt-in for marketing the same way…"

Chris Butler commented on Jon Rock's blog post Mobile App vs. Mobile Website: Which is Best for Restaurants?
"Jon, I would probably recommend those operators update their site anyways. To create (or update a site) to be mobile friendly by today's standards just means you need to write HTML4/5 website. If the site is still using lots of flash or XHTML…"

Chris Butler commented on Jon Rock's blog post Mobile App vs. Mobile Website: Which is Best for Restaurants?

Chris Butler commented on Jon Rock's blog post Mobile App vs. Mobile Website: Which is Best for Restaurants?

Chris Butler commented on Michael L. Atkinson's blog post 10 Food Tech Start-Up Lessons

"Another important thought on getting into hospitality technology: stage (aka shadow or 'work for free') in the job role that is affected most by your service. The 'lean development' movement in technology tells you to get out of…"

Chris Butler commented on Michele Wagaman's blog post One New Message: "Your Table is Now Ready!"
"I have been paged using my phone a few different times with both text messages and phone calls. It is waaaaay better than using the hardware pagers. Not only is it a better experience, but the range is much further: I can actually go do something…"
