PGA Tour Goes High Tech with Mobile iPad POS by Lavu Inc.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lavu Inc. is pleased to announce their debut as a hospitality technology provider for the Memorial Tournament on the 2014 PGA Tour. The mobile iPad POS from Lavu will be paired with the latest in "smart" technologies offered by industry leaders Epson and APG Cash Drawer, accommodating 200,000 golf fans and professionals at concession stands and shops.
Golfing legend Jack Nicklaus conceived and hosts the event scheduled this year for May 26 through June 1. Some of the game's biggest names including Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and fan favorite Ricky Fowler have committed to the tournament held at the renowned Muirfield Village Golf Club.
The POS app will be deployed on 20 iPads throughout the facility to improve food and beverage service to a crowd expected to top 200,000 during the seven-day event. According to Josh Green, CEO of Culinetwork and Lavu Specialist based in Ohio, "About 30,000 people a day will attend the event so it's a great opportunity to showcase how powerful and easy our POS system is to use."
As a team Lavu, APG Cash Drawer and tech giant Epson create an end-to-end "smart" system for managing a menu, order taking, mobile payment processing, and essential back-of-house functions. According to Mark Olson, president of APG, "We're honored to be included at such a prestigious event. This POS solution creates a seamless check out experience regardless of the location souvenir tent, Pro Shop or Club House."
Muirfield Village Golf Club will be among the first to host a PGA event using advanced mobile technology to improve the customers' dining experience. Green said he "can train the wait staff in about an hour, and then show senior management all the back-end tools like the sales reports, inventory management and customer database."
Lavu's worldwide success has been attributed to the user-friendly integration of many tasks that were previously done manually and prone to errors. With the Lavu POS system, order taking and payment processing is easy, fast and accurate. Real-time sales reports and inventory counts provide additional benefits for event management. To date, thousands of licensed users in 85 countries around the world have deployed Lavu technology in their operations.
