Obligatory registration in gastronomy & Co: App against paper list


Since the restaurant was reopened, restaurants and other businesses with public traffic in almost all federal states have to record the contact details of their guests in order to meet corona requirements. A new app is to simplify the procedure, which is usually based on pen and paper, and at the same time prevent newcomers from viewing other guests’ data on a form.

The user can use the “Come in!” save the app’s contact details in the form of name, address and telephone number as a QR code. On iPhones, the code can then also be stored centrally in the wallet app. Owners of restaurants or other businesses with corresponding requirements can then scan in the customers’ QR codes with the app. The data is only saved locally on the device used as a scanner, the provider ProjectWizards emphasizes – The app is thus compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The data can be exported as an Excel file so that the owner of a restaurant can bring together the contact data scanned by different waiters, each with their own device, the development studio said when asked by Mac & i. In addition to the name, street, city and telephone number provided by the guest, the time of arrival and departure of the location and a table number are also saved. After a specified period of time, the app can automatically delete the stored data.

The app is available for both iPhones and Android smartphones, the download is free. To be able to scan the QR codes of guests, restaurateurs or shopkeepers have to activate the so-called shopkeeper mode, which costs 25 euros as a one-time in-app purchase. The activation only applies to one device at a time.
