When Adelaide Oval re-opens in October 2013 for the cricket season, a new venue management system will provide stadium staff with sales information from every point of sale (POS) device.
The Venue Manager system, provided by NCR, is designed to help staff report, analyse and forecast sales leading to better inventory control and cash management.
According to Oval CEO Andrew Daniels, the system will help fulfil its commitment to provide “exceptional service” to punters while increasing efficiency, reducing waste and costs.
The rollout is part of a $535 million redevelopment which includes new bars, restaurants, dining rooms, corporate boxes and concession stands to cater for crowds of up to 50,000 people.
Adelaide Oval will be fully operational in time for the AFL season in March 2014.
NCR has also worked with Suncorp and Metricon stadiums in Queensland on a loaded ticket offering. The system allows fans to preload their match tickets or membership cards with money to be used to buy merchandise, food or drinks.
