The Paceway, formerly a training facility, was given a $30m facelift to become the headquarters of the NSW Harness Racing Club (NSWHRC). It has a new metropolitan standard race track - at 1400m, the largest in Australia - which have produced faster times than ever before and generated unprecedented interest from around the globe in Australian racing and horses.
Great food and drink has always played an important part in a day at the races, so the NWSHRC was keen to ensure that their restaurants and bars complemented the world class racing experience. Operations Manager Bruce Christison says “We have12 food and beverage outlets, including a 350-seat restaurant, 4 function rooms and 2 permanent marquees, with a total seated dining capacity of 150”’.
The Menangle team was clear on what they were looking for in a POS solution for the new venues. “It had to be centrally controlled and have good networking capability to connect our outlets across the complex,” explains Bruce. “We wanted full integration to EFTPOS, stock control and our existing reservation and membership system. And of course it needed to be reliable and price competitive. Redcat ticked all the boxes”.
