Case Study - Bambuubar Club

TOSHIBA TEC & WRS install new EPoS system for the upmarket Southampton Bambuubar Club

The Challenge

In the short time Southamptons Bambuubar has existed, it has already established itself as ‘THE’ place to be and attracts an extensive following of the cities elite clientele. In any one night you can sample the delights of their delicious Thai cuisine, simply enjoy the attentive hospitality or stay a little later and absorb the nightclub essence.

Such a busy venue therefore required a more efficient solution than its existing cash register system. Bambuubar wanted a point of sale solution sophisticated enough to provide a management system to control the high level of club activity, including sales promotions and management reporting, whilst being quick and easy to use to cater for the varied and busy demands of the club.

The Solution

The Bambuubar Club, part of the Bar Bluu group with venues in Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight, turned to Wight Retail Systems to provide a solution. WRS selected Datasym.PoS point of sale software to run on TOSHIBA TEC's ST-60 integrated touchscreen terminals.

The Benefits

With the Datasym.PoS solution in place, the Bambuubar Club now receives full and accurate sales information on each product line, which allows the management to accurately and easily cost all sales promotions. All items are put through the TOSHIBA TEC touchscreen tills allowing the club to cost and control stock. Furthermore, it has eliminated many of the operator errors the club was previously experiencing as well as costly wastage! In terms of security a Fingerprint ID system is in place which gives the flexibility for staff to sign on quickly and easily at designated tills, and also allows the club manager to monitor the operators, retaining the crucial security and control needed.

Oscar Pardal Club Manager, commented on the system “the management of the data and reporting facilities provided has enabled us to run the club far more efficiently and profitably. He continues, “the TOSHIBA TEC touchscreen menu options are intuitive, quick and easy for our staff to use, which is important at peak periods and when we run so many different promotions. Automated, timed promotions are quick and easy to programme and help to reduce staff errors.”
