BigDish Plc (LON:DISH) shares ticked up in early deals on Thursday after it announced plans to add reviews and reservation sharing features to its app and website as part of technology development targets for the second quarter.

The firm, which operates a service to match customers with restaurant tables, said it would also be introducing a ‘new restaurant’ feature as well as improvements to its search functions to allow searching by region.

The company also plans to hire three to four new developers for its team in Manila in the Philippines “as soon as possible”, with the additional cost expected to be “minimal”.

“Technology development never stands still and it is important that we stay ahead of the curve”, said Sanj Naha, chief executive of BigDish.

“I look forward to growing our technology team in Manila as this will accelerate both the pace and scale of development. These are exciting features and functionality being developed and whilst it is not easy to accurately forecast engineering timetables the new functionality will bring about greater engagement with the BigDish app."

The developments come as BigDIsh continues the roll out of its services across the UK, having launched its platform in Southampton last month.

The group has also revamped its website, with the latest iteration released in beta form last week.

Shares were up 1% at 2.3p.
