13th Annual Northstar User Conference

The 13th Annual Northstar User Conference was held successfully in New Orleans, LA earlier this month. There were over 100 attendees at the 2-day conference which covered a gamut of topics across the Northstar suite. Both the conference with its training-based coverage of topics & private 1:1 session with Northstar experts and the city of New Orleans got a BIG thumbs up from the attendees! As an attendee cleanly summed it up “Thank you! Conference was fantastic! Learned so much! Great job”.

Another Satisfied Club with Tableside POS & Kitchen Display System

Shadow Wood Country Club recently installed Tableside POS & Kitchen Display System (KDS). Both installations have been a resounding success and has helped the club increase team efficiency and member satisfaction.

“My goal as a General Manager is always to research and implement best practices in all areas of our operation to increase our team’s efficiency and most importantly, member satisfaction. Northstar is one of those resources that I can rely on to achieve both member and staff satisfaction. They are constantly bringing new ideas to the table to help us run the club better and we have embraced their innovative culture to ensure Shadow Wood is at the forefront of the newest club technology available.” Brian Bartolec, GM/COO

KDS

Closing the Loop

“Shadow Wood recently upgraded to Northstar 6.0 and brought in both the tableside tablets for the dining room, and the KDS screens for the kitchen. Both systems have proven to be wonderful additions and have greatly sped up service, as well as accuracy during the order taking process.” John St. John, Director of Food & Beverage
