Better Buzz For Better Business
There’s no quicker way to increase your revenue than to effectively market to existing customers. A comprehensive customer database increases customer visits, the time customers spend at your center, and the amount of money they spend every time they come. Now, you can automatically capture and manage valuable and actionable customer data, as well as draw from the database to implement targeted direct marketing programs based on gender, age, zip code, address, and more. You can also create custom fields to track data such as bowling score averages to target bowlers of different skill levels and generate detailed reports to examine the data. The database is even BITS compliant for easy exchange of data with other systems. Import and export data from Bowler TRAC and CDE software.
BOWLER’S REWARDS FREQUENCY PROGRAM (OPTIONAL)
Rewards customers for purchases throughout your center and establishes point levels with corresponding rewards. It’s a great way to create valuable reports that track and analyze member spending. Includes convenient membership cards—complete with bar codes—to speed up transactions.
BOWLER’S REWARDS PROMOTION KIT (OPTIONAL)
This promotion kit includes a customizable data collection form, flyer, coupon, poster, employee button and overhead monitor graphic. The program uses popular, standard page-layout and graphics file formats that you can easily output yourself…or supply as finished art files to any quick printer.
Point of Sale
Show Me The Money
With Vector® Plus you can accurately calculate, collect and track every dollar spent anywhere in your system – all from one easy-to-operate system.
Point of Sale (POS) stations can be dedicated to cover particular departments—such as bowling, bar and snack bar areas—or assigned to control multiple areas. And with the remote order printing feature, it’s a snap to send orders wherever they’re needed. VectorPlus is not only a great way to manage customer accounts and individual tabs, but also provides better control over package pricing and rates, as well as all aspects of payment processing.
It’s like having a finance manager on site 24/7. An ideal solution for lighter staffing hours or small centers where products are sold from one location.Read More
Keep Your Lanes In Action!
Keeping more action on your lanes is the easiest way to increase revenue and maximize lineage in your center. Lane On and Status Display provide global settings to support standard lane preparation for leagues and other scoring arrangements. It turns lanes on/off quickly and allows you to check lane status with easy-view graphics.
It also displays scheduled reservations automatically and integrates with Internet Reservations and Event Manager. The newly enhanced Wait List function lets customers pre-pay for their bowling, then go spend their time (and money!) doing other things in your center. You can record waiting bowlers shoe-size and ball-weight, so you’ll be ready to serve them as soon as their spot comes up. You can now print tickets for your wait-listed customers, too.
An optional feature downloads bowler names when lanes are open and displays status updates in real time using Digital Signage. For those making advanced reservations, the user-friendly drag-and-drop interface highlights color-coded reservation types and allows you to locate and modify reservations and quickly add bowler names and products as needed.
Staff members can take reservations and deposits at the counter or over the phone using the easy-to-operate layout. It even applies rates for designated days and times—automatically. Score corrections can also be handled quickly and easily at the lane or from the front desk.
Put More Game In Your Game!
Multiply the fun by offering bowlers games within a game—throughout the center or on selected lanes. It’s a great way to add variety and excitement to a round of bowling by allowing players of widely varying skill levels to compete evenly while on the same lane.
3-6-9 Free Strike
This game levels the playing field by giving bowlers automatic strikes in the third, sixth and ninth frames. Perfect for Pro-Am tournaments or for groups with bowlers of different skill levels.
