amusement parks & zoos

Park and amusement operations are primarily challenged by the sheer number of food and beverage outlets they operate. Requisition and transfer functions are critical, and many rely heavily on strong concession tracking, in some cases using stand sheets in combination with POS.

Seasonality can play a role in these environments, and data entry functions must be easy to use and secure. Systems generally consist of multiple profit centers with multiple simultaneous users. Strong profit center reporting, timely perpetual inventory information and accurate order forecasting is critical to these organizations. In many cases, they also have fairly significant IT departments and require strong networking capabilities from their system providers.

"Taking inventory used to take three people 12 hours. Now that we are using the FOOD-TRAK hand held scanner, one person takes inventory in about 2.5 hours in the warehouse. Our inventory easily contains 400,000 items, includes multiple restaurant locations, over 20 concession stands and bars paired with our productin locations. Now that we are using the FOOD-TRAK hand held scanner, end of month inventory takes only a few hours."
