After spending the next five years reviewing various software packages, they decided that each system had a deficiency either in how they captured data, allowed the client to use the data or reported the data. Many systems appeared written by people with little or no professional knowledge on how hospitality operates. As a result of these deficiencies, bossii was born.
With the hospitality industry facing shrinking profits, escalating product and labour costs, bossii was developed to allow professional owners to understand their business in a way that many other systems do not show.
Technology has allowed us to create a system that records every button press of data capture which then can be displayed in the most time efficient manner allowing the business owner to look at a simple but very powerful synopsis of their business at a glance. bossii controls all parts of a hospitality business but the major focuses are on the two largest cost centres in a hospitality business, Labour and Cost of Goods Sold. All areas of these two cost centres are managed including ordering the goods to reporting on the gross profit for a particular date range and also comparing the budgeted wage percentage to the final actual wage percentage.
Bossii also has an extremely well streamlined functions and bookings management module that is integrated into the POS. Being able to handle deposits paid in advance and to call on that deposit on the day of the function is a feature that is often overlooked by many other hospitality pos programs that are not written by hospitality professionals.
To capture data more succinctly, bossii is the first system to not only include fingerprint control for all staff, but if required bossii can use fingerprint recognition for the clients VIP’s or members. This feature can save hospitality businesses thousands of dollars a year in printing cards or making key-rings & not to mention the grief in administering such manual based systems. BOSSII was also the first system to introduce a truly simple rental system for those customers that prefer to keep their cash flow in their bank account. No more spending tens of thousands of dollars on software that you don’t even know will work for your business.
Bossii has introduced an easy, “no contracts”, monthly user licence fee to keep your cash flow for your business. This allows your business to keep your cash flow manageable & use the tens of thousands of dollars that other systems charge on your business in more productive areas of trade. The future for bossii is a path of ongoing research & development in consultation with our team of hospitality professionals & of course, our clients. bossii debuted successfully in 2007 in a number of Brisbane hospitality venues and with further enhancements still being completed, the future for bossii and its clients can only get stronger.
We hope to welcome you to the bossii family soon.
