Corporate catering company CH&Co, has installed Rendezvous, the best of breed event management software from NFS Technology to handle all its event management requirements.
CH&Co is a leading independent catering group with six specialist businesses that have been meeting the needs of employees, visitors, and guests for more than 20 years. Its highly skilled teams offer the broadest range of eating, hospitality and venue experiences in the UK – serving up to 60,000 people daily.
Rendezvous event management software from NFS is a well proven and fully functional package for meeting venues, used by many leading UK venue operators. Designed with commercial and unique venues in mind the solution enables users to reserve space and resources, request deposits and manage payments, assign and oversee tasks, track booking changes and ensure the proper delivery of catering and AV equipment.
“We trialled Rendezvous at the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham,” explains CH&Co IT Director Michael Garcia. “Based on the software’s performance, its ease of use and the support provided by NFS, we have now implemented Rendezvous at the Old Royal Naval College, and plan to roll it out soon to other venues within our estate.
“Rendezvous has helped us to streamline the booking and billing process, saving valuable time which our staff can now use to deliver better service. Having Rendezvous will also help with revenue generation as it gives us better information on our clients’ booking and consumption patterns.”
Venue Area Sales Manager Claire Phelps comments: “Introducing the solution to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens was an easy decision to make. We reviewed other systems, but found Rendezvous the best solution for our business because we find the system user friendly. That helped with the initial set up and got the team up and running as quickly as possible. Rendezvous is also fantastic because of the information and data we can gain from the system for all departments of our business, enabling us to run as efficiently as possible.”
Following the successful implementation of Rendezvous, CH&Co is now evaluating Aloha, the restaurant point of sale software solution from NFS for food and beverage management.
“Having a single suite of solutions from one supplier and a single point of contact for support makes a lot of sense,” says Michael Garcia “It will help with meeting business needs going forward and also in tackling the challenges of data integration across different areas of our operation.”
NFS Chief Executive Officer Luis De Souza adds: “We are delighted that CH&Co selected Rendezvous for the event management sides of its business and look forward to working more in future with such a prestigious new client.”
“Our reliable and easy-to-use hospitality technology delivers many benefits to our clients, The Pulse real time food and beverage management information tool, for example, is now used at many restaurants for better controls and more proactive management.”
