Today CenterEdge Software is excited to announce the release the first phase of our next generation online waiver system. This new system is based on a wide variety of feedback that we've collected from our customers and this first phase incorporates many of the most requested features. Here are a few of the highlights:
Last week, we talked about how online ticketing software can help your bottom line. In a nutshell, when you sell tickets online, you’ll be able to sell more tickets, you’ll get access to a new revenue stream with convenience fees and you’ll be able to cut back on front line labor.
It seems strange that online ticketing has only been in the mainstream for a decade or so. For a while, it was mostly concert tickets purchased through Ticketmaster. Then, slowly but surely, movie theatres and some larger parks like theme parks and zoos started to offer tickets online. Now, nearly every entertainment venue from trampoline parks and laser tag facilities to water parks and aquariums offers some type of online ticket sales.
With CenterEdge Advantage 12.1, we released an iPod-based platform for mobile validation of tickets and cards called CenterEdge Mobile. We recently released a lot of great new features, but this is one of my personal favorites. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities for parks and family entertainment centers, and does so at a very reasonable cost.
Over the last few years, adding online party bookings to your birthday party center software has gone from being an exciting high-tech luxury to a business necessity. You've been considering entering this new world for a while, but there are too many doubts and uncertainties.
As a final installment based around my blog, "How Long Will It Take to Pay for a FEC POS", I am going to discuss means to use the point of sale for revenue generation. As with any decent POS program, you have the ability to customize pricing and packages to meet your price list. However have you ever thought of:
Shopping for any software to manage your business can be stressful but choosing online party booking software can be especially difficult. Your customer is the one using this software, so if you have a problem, it isn't just frustrating, it looks unprofessional. So how can you avoid problems and find the perfect solution for your business? Here are 5 questions to ask when you talk to software companies about online party booking software.
Is your skating rink still operating using a cigar box or a cash register? Have you ever considered adding a point of sale system to your skating rink, but thought that the benefits didn't outweigh the cost? Well, at CenterEdge Software we don't believe that's true. The fact is, the return on investment for a new point of sale and birthday reservation system in a skating rink really makes the decision a no-brainer.
With the NFL draft fast approaching, I started thinking about how teams evaluate the needs they hope to fill from the draft. Do they need an offensive player? a defensive player? someone on special teams? What areas need improvement and what the best way to achieve it. This same evaluation is probably being used in your FEC on a daily basis. Do you look at your POS as a member of your team? With the right POS, you could find an “iron man” system, which would “play” on all sides of your FEC operation.
For any facility that books birthday parties, we strongly recommend allowing your customers to book their parties online. As we've mentioned before, there are a lot of advantages that come with online party bookings. However, any time you offer an online service, there are always security concerns that need to be addressed.
