A brief history of
In 1999 a company called ReservationSource was
founded as a Web reservation portal for golf courses and restaurants.
While building onsite reservation management applications for its
customers, ReservationSource developed a software solution that did a
great job of tracking and managing guest and operational information.

the software application and enriching the guest management services for the hospitality
industry. In 2002, the company was renamed GuestBridge to reflect this
Since then, GuestBridge has improved its solutions, adding
capabilities such as:
||Support for multiple restaurants, including real-time sharing of guest
information and cross-unit reporting|
||Intranet-based reservation tools for concierges and other staff at hotels and
||Enhanced tracking, reporting and marketing tools|
||An enterprise solution to allow restaurant groups to host their own online reservations and enable central call centers|
||Tools for restaurants that want to increase their efficiency and turn their tables faster
These capabilities are

GuestBridge is proud to announce that we agreed to be acquired by OpenTable, Inc. in September 2009. OpenTable is a leading provider of free, real-time online restaurant reservations for diners and reservation and guest management solutions for restaurants. To us, this purchase made sense because we felt that the combination of the two companies could offer a more powerful solution to GuestBridge customers. We think we’ll be able to offer a more complete way to meet the various needs of every restaurant. For more information on the announcement, please see our press release.
