THE WORLD’S MOST PERSONALIZED DINING RECOMMENDATIONS.
More personalized guest experiences begin with more personalized recommendations. That’s why, on October 5th, 2017, we started building an app that could generate uniquely personalized restaurant recommendations for anyone based on their own specific individual preferences and current location.
Instead of relying on the subjective feelings and personal opinions of people you've probably never even met before - we thought it's about time for a more practical approach.
COURSE is not another restaurant review or ratings app designed to extract advertising $$$ from restaurant owners.
COURSE is not a platform for your opinions to be shared publicly as much as it is designed to act more as a friend, in every city, who knows you well enough to make solid dining recommendations.
The more you use COURSE, the more it gets to know your individual tastes and preferences.
COURSE will provide a customized list of restaurants for each and every member.
Here's a sneak preview of what we have in store for you:
YOU DON'T HAVE TO FOLLOW THE CROWD
Up until now, discovering your favorite restaurants required rolling the dice or following the crowd but... if your tastes happen to differ from the crowd's, the local revered food critics' or even those of "Elite" Yelpers'"; COURSE will take your unique preferences into account and calculate which dining establishments are most compatible with your own tastes...including the ones you haven't even tried yet.
TASTE IS SUBJECTIVE
COURSE merges technology with hospitality in order to enhance the guest experience with predictive intelligence.
Our recommendations are driven by collecting, crowdsourcing and cross-referencing the most valuable opinions on the planet - yours.
COURSE will gradually get to know you and your individual tastes in order to produce the most reliable personalized recommendations for you (or your group) wherever you are...or plan to be.
It's literally (and we don't take the word "literally" lightly) impossible to slam a restaurant on COURSE because your ratings are kept private instead of being broadcasted for the world to see.
Your opinions are kept confidential and used productively in order to find the common ground that exists between diners and restaurants on our network. The more our members use COURSE, the more accurately it will be able to predict the places and menu items they are most likely to enjoy.
The only person affected by negative ratings on this network, is the person giving the negative ratings - since their ratings affect their own pool of results when they’re seeking recommendations.
When you download COURSE by Hawser, you're asked to take the first in a series of brief Taste Profile Questionnaires in order to start feeding the neural net algorithm which, over time, learns more and more about your: likes, dislikes, expectations and even how willing you might be to try something new.
COURSE uses technology responsibly by taking what we learn to better serve you - instead of target you for unwanted marketing and other spam.
A MORE INDIVIDUALIZED APPROACH
Ironically, many restaurant rating and review sites have a tendency to actually hurt restaurants.
By keeping the reviews (and the reviewers) hidden, COURSE is not only able to maintain the integrity of the input but is able to mitigate the propensity for herd mentality as well.
We’re eliminating the negative effects of fake reviews, purchased reviews and reviews by those who have an ax to grind.
We don't want bias or negativity to unduly influence people's opinions with pre-conceived notions or limit anyone's interest in trying something new.
We're supporting diverse tastes here.
COURSE provides a solution to people struggling with the decision of where to eat while catering to a level of preference that everyone is entitled to.
