CenterEdge Software
Any FEC small or big can benefit from CenterEdge. It pulls your entire facility together under one point of sale. Groups, redemption prizes, Bowling modules, Laser Tag modules, webstore, kiosks...just to name a few. As CenterEdge is relatively young they are growing and expanding at a rate that can not be ignored and we are glad to have them back at our locations.

Pros
CenterEdge Software
  • Point of sale. The interface is very user friendly and can get very granular on how you want to ring in guests not only at the point of sale but from a groups perspective as well.
  • Modular. There are so many great integrations with CenterEdge from inventory tracking to Laser Tag modules and if they don't have it, chances are they will very soon.
  • Groups. This is how we make a good amount of our income and CenterEdge really helps us deliver a great guest experience from the time the sale is made to the time the guest leave the building after their event.

Cons
CenterEdge Software
  • External Employee Scheduling. CenterEdge has its own scheduler but in today's high tech world there needs to be more integration with big companies like When to Work and HotSchedules.
  • F&B Recipe creation and management could be a little easier but it still does a good job.

  • Brink could update its hardware to the sign of the times with guest interactive POS.
  • Appears clunky at times with its processes and steps.
  • Brink needs to be able to edit it reporting features to get the desired result for time clock compliance especially in CA with Meal Break Laws.
  • Brink needs to integrate its time clock process in CA, for a team member to accept or decline time clock edits and to waive a mandatory break.
  • Brink needs better integration with KDS systems to do exactly what we need it to do as our business model develops into the future.

Micros is great for the restaurant industry, but we're not that. We are an FEC with MANY activities under one roof including F & B, but Micros just could not handle keep track of everything we offer to our guests. Centeredge does that and more. If you are a bar/restaurant then Micros is for you. But if you are an FEC with many different offerings and you want to have control over your sales, don't think...choose CenterEdge.

I inherited Brink and it works for us for now. But as we grow in CA and other markets, Brink maybe becomes a challenge with time record compliance and the ability to perform up to expectations with KDS systems.

Return on Investment
CenterEdge Software
  • Reporting. We can see exactly where our income is coming from and going with how granular the reporting is. No losses here!
  • Coupons and Discounts. We are in full control of our discounts and how often they are used, something that our previous POS could not give us.
  • Ease of use. I said it before and I'll say it again because it is true. It's easy! And who doesn't love easy???

  • Positive impact on its simplicity with our growth and ability to teach and transform our business.
  • Negative impact on the business with time clock compliance in CA. We need more functionality for the Team Member experience in time clock management.
