OpenTable Overhauls Dining App

Online restaurant reservation service OpenTable announced Thursday (Dec. 4) that its newly-designed website has now gone live for diners across six nations.

The Priceline Group-owned company has revealed a “platform more agile than ever before,” OpenTable Senior Vice President of Product Management Jocelyn Mangan Last October, the company launched the Pay with OpenTable mobile payments option in Washington, D.C. The initiative allows users to upload payment information on the OpenTable iPhone app so diners don’t have to wait for the bill at the end of their meal.

The mobile payment option first launched last March and has already spread to New York City and San Francisco; the company expects about 20 cities to enable the payment option in the near future.

Priceline finalized its deal to acquire OpenTable for about $2.6 billion last June.
