Sydney, 20 August 2014 – Priava, the leading cloud-based venue management software company, has announced that the Central Coast Leagues Club, Newcastle’s Merewether Surfhouse, and the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, have upgraded to Priava Cloud, the organisation’s cloud-based venue and event management booking system.

James Pegum, CEO, Priava, said, “All three organisations will benefit from working with a feature-rich software platform from which their venue management teams will be able to access critical customer and venue information in real-time, and gain better insight into their overall business operations from the rich reporting capabilities provided.”

The Central Coast Leagues Club, a member of Leagues Clubs Australia, overlooks Brisbane Waters in Gosford and provides a meeting place for rugby league supporters and the local community. It manages a wide range of facilities and entertainment, from restaurants, coffee shops and a bistro to a cricket museum, indoor and outdoor lawn bowls, sports lounge and outdoor barbecue area. It acts as a social hub for the local area.

Pegum said, “We are delighted that the Central Coast Leagues Club has recognised the business efficiencies that Priava can bring to the organisation. Like many of its peers around the country, the club makes a vital contribution to the local community’s culture and is a resource for many different groups, social activities and events.

“Having recently restructured its function space to allow for a wider variety of community activities, the club chose a system that offered more flexibility and could be configured to operate across new areas, create more value and streamline internal procedures. By moving to the cloud, a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution will also further reduce internal IT costs and all but eliminate down-time when system upgrades or configuration changes take place.”

James Pegum, CEO, Priava, said, “All three organisations will benefit from working with a feature-rich software platform from which their venue management teams will be able to access critical customer and venue information in real-time, and gain better insight into their overall business operations from the rich reporting capabilities provided.”

Merewether Surfhouse, located on Merewether beach, one of the Central Coast’s top surfing locations, is Newcastle’s premier beachfront events venue, and incorporates a restaurant, bar, café and pizza & gelato take-away.

Pegum commented, “The popularity of Merewether Surfhouse as a beachfront events venue, has resulted in the need for a new system that has the operational and reporting capabilities to manage a more complex environment. Staff will be able to efficiently handle enquiries in real-time, quickly identifying available space, tentative bookings and confirmed events.”

Priava launched its SaaS (Software as a Service) enterprise product incorporating many of the popular features of Events Perfect, the previous on-premise solution which the Central Coast Leagues Club, Merewether Surfhouse and Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority had implemented.
