“Seated” is a restaurant reservation & delivery app which pays you to dine out. It is currently present in major cities like New York, Dallas, Atlanta, and a few more. It is growing very rapidly across the US and we’re their tech partners to help them grow.
SEATED is a restaurant discovery app with a mission to fill in empty tables at restaurants. It is a platform where members can either book a reservation or place an order for takeout or delivery. SEATED offers dynamic rewards on meals enjoyed through the app as a percentage of the total bill paid at the restaurant. Members can redeem their Seated Rewards for gift cards from renowned brands like Uber, Amazon, Target, Sephora, Airbnb, Starbucks, and more. In short, SEATED helps restaurants to boost their sales while simultaneously offering rewards to members for dining out!
While the idea behind SEATED proposed a business opportunity previously untapped, the scalability issues in their initial MVP hampered the execution of new cool and exciting product features. The inability of the platform to balance growth with stability was affecting marketing campaigns. The slow search system further resulted in ineffective user acquisition and engagement..
Migrated Their Hybrid React App to Native Apps
Offering an impeccable user experience to its members is an integral part of SEATED’s core strategy. So they turned to us for a complete re-architecture of their hybrid app. Our nimble-fingered mobile and backend engineers swiftly revamped the hybrid app’s framework and migrated it to native iOS Swift and Android Kotlin.

Built Their Complex Restaurant Search System
The challenge here was to build a scalable search system, which returns results from a massive set of data, within 1 second. To meet their needs we developed a robust search system using industry-leading search engines. It was engineered to its maximum extent using different caching techniques, optimizing queries, modularising different components, and writing high-performance gRPCs. The result was a robust and scalable search system integrated with multiple filters that offered a seamless user experience, showing high relevance restaurants to its users within a blink of an eye.
Extended Reach from Mobile to Web
Seated wanted to extend its users’ reach by providing an additional web-based channel. The important task was to ensure the same seamless experience on the web as it is in the app. By leveraging the most cutting-edge technology stack in the industry and following microservices architecture, our agile-oriented developers were able to develop a responsive website for SEATED within a very short period of time.
