Back in early July, we wrote an article about our integration with the new version Jonas Software 12.5 Accounting and Point-of-Sale software, which will help us improve our efficiency and communication with Members in our Food & Beverage department. As in the first article, we spoke about the functionality and capabilities that the software will offer. These include: inputting Members preferences directly into our system so that the Service Staff will get precise information on their food preferences, and electronically sending Member receipts through email. Our overall goal is to take our existing Food & Beverage program and create something a bit different, something to entice and excite our Membership.
On Tuesday, September 8, 2015, Wycliffe’s Accounting Staff was invited to attend a session with Jonas Software. The event was hosted by the software company and held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, FL. Attending was Wycliffe Golf & Country Club’s Chief Financial Officer, Alex Jewell and Sammy Tebib, Food & Beverage Cost Controller. The reason for being there, was to get more informed about how the Jonas Software technology can best be used to maintain quality control and overall performance.
Prior to this session, Trevor Coughlin, Director of Marketing for Jonas Software, contacted Wycliffe Golf & Country Club’s Marketing Department regarding being placed in Boardroom Magazine. To give you more insight into Boardroom Magazine, it remains the only publication of its kind to directly target the board of directors and management of private and semi-private golf and country clubs in the United States and Canada. The insight they provide into the private club industry is incredibly valuable to us on multiple levels and it’s a privilege to be featured in their upcoming technology section.
Mr Coughlin had the opportunity to speak directly with Rob Martin, Clubhouse Manager and Sammy Tebib, Food & Beverage Cost Controller for Wycliffe, regarding our specific uses for Jonas Software and how our Club is staying at the forefront of technology and creating a more dynamic marketing program.
“Food & Beverage is a primary amenity at Wycliffe, and we’re trying to maximize this revenue stream. That’s why we’re so aggressive with our professional development program. A well trained team means we can enhance our service performance and create a better experience for our Members. We recognize that technology in the club world is advancing quickly, and we’re committed to doing everything we can to stay on the cutting edge of that advancement” said Martin.
As a Club, we value advancement of technology and the continuation of Staff training. We also understand its importance as it relates to our Membership. It’s an investment that involves careful planning, so that we can provide a more pleasurable and memorable dining experience for Members.
