The Multi Venue POS system from Vectron Systems Australia
was recently installed at three venues promoted by Andrew Clark of the Frothy Beer Group.
The three venues, Cumberland Hotel in Castlemaine, Commercial Hotel in Swan Hill and the Valley Inn in Geelong recently changed their management system to the more thorough and consolidated Multi Venue POS solution from Vectron.
Andrew Clark explained that the previous POS system was quite cumbersome, making it difficult to centralise activities across all locations. The Group sought a POS solution that would allow them to seamlessly manage stock and run promotions from one location.
Vectron’s Multi Venue POS provides a unique link between the three hotels, the POS terminals and the Head Office, giving Andrew and his management team unmatched control over their business. All stock movement, staff activity and cash flow data from each venue is now sent to Head Office in real time, instantly alerting management to any incidents or discrepancies as they happen.
Security parameters have been set to allow users at each of the hotels to only view data for their venue, while Andrew and other nominated Head Office users can access data for all the venues and if required, can log into Head Office from any one of the hotels.
According to Andrew, the central accounting system gives them complete control of each venue, its stock and day-to-day operations via remote access.
The unique PLU free stock management helps staff enter or search for products quickly and easily with any change in price, product or promotion by Head Office users getting updated at all remote databases in real time.
The management also has complete control over their loyalty programs and promotions across the three venues. The Loyalty and Vouchers module can be used to run targeted promotions and create bar coded vouchers tied to on-the-spot purchases or memberships. These vouchers are issued by the system, leaving no room for human error or misuse, allowing management to track each promotion, voucher or discount, down to every cent.
Helen McRae, Cumberland Hotel, Castlemaine pointed out that the PLU feature was an instant winner with their Point of Sale operators, who also found the whole transition to the new Multi Venue POS absolutely hassle-free.
Flexibility of reporting, powerful loyalty tools and absolute control make Vectron’s Multi Venue system ideal for group operations. With no limit on the number of sites or POS terminals to support, the POS solution can be tailored to meet the needs of small or large businesses.
