• Venue and event management in the cloud

Bars, Clubs and RSLs invest in cloud-based technology from Priava to boost revenues and extend business offering

Sydney & London, 19th September 2016 – Priava, the leading cloud-based venue management software company, has announced that a growing number of pubs, clubs and RSLs are investing in its technology to increase their income from hosting events.
In the last 12 months Priava has been adopted by the following clubs and pubs:

CEO at Priava, James Pegum commented, “We recognise that bars and clubs typically have limited resources to coordinate, manage and market their venue, so they are potentially missing out on the significant and lucrative commercial benefits of hosting a larger volume of events bookings. Our cloud-based solution helps to reduce the time spent in generating and turning enquiries into bookings and managing the efficient delivery of events. This means they can do more with less staff and because the technology is in the cloud, there is no need for internal IT support.”

Here are some of the key benefits that Priava offers to bars, clubs and RSLs:

  • Accelerate the sales process with an integrated online calendar enquiry form so that leads and opportunities are recorded straight into the system
  • Manage multiple venues at the same time and maximise occupancy levels with access to real-time availability
  • Support growth by producing accurate sales reports including pipelines, trends, forecasts and actual figures
  • Create simple and effective room, catering and inventory proposals, quotations, booking forms and/or contracts featuring item descriptions, prices and special requirements
  • Provide new and existing staff with the latest technology to make their lives easier
  • Centralised system means that different teams and departments can access relevant information e.g. kitchen confirm menu selections, AV department can review equipment booking information, security team can check guest numbers, cleaning team can check set up and set down times etc.
  • Spend less time on training and saves hours of needless administration, so your team can focus on key revenue-generation tasks such as confirming bookings and liaising with clients
  • Maximise the efficiency of your cash flow by issuing deposits and final invoices straight from the system – no more waiting for the accounts department
  • Eliminate the need for a server and reduce dependence on IT support
