Africa's leading yacht club sets sail with Ankerdata - Royal Cape Yacht Club
About the Royal Cape Yacht Club.
The Club was founded as the Table Bay Yacht Club in 1905. It was changed to the Cape Yacht Club in 1914. When the Royal Charter was received, the club became the Royal Cape Yacht Club.
After the 2nd World War, the present clubhouse was built. Additions took place when the local yachting boom took off. This was started by the first Trans-Atlantic Race from Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro in 1971. The membership grew from 300 to a staggering 2000 members. Boat accommodation progressed from swing moorings to the marina's of today. Control passed from amateur committees to professional staff.
International events have included the Whitbread race, BT Global Challenge, BOC Around Alone Race, Volvo Race, The Lisbon Expo 98, Clippers and the Hong Kong Challenge, to name but a few
A fully integrated solution from Ankerdata
Procure.net controls procurement, inventory & menu engineering and exports it's summary data to the club's Pastel accounting system daily. Date includes inventory, claims etc.
Enterprise consolidates all Point of Sale data and provides central control of all front end transactions with extensive data mining options and the programming of the POS terminals.
Easipos handles the billing in the bars and the restaurant. Different price levels for members and non-members are automatically achieved via members' RF cards. A new real-time interface links the Easipos transaction directly into the member's account in the Pastel Accounting system. Charge transactions are thus online without human intervention.
The RCYC has the choice to handle debit and/or credit accounts with the club retaining the credit deposits. A key advantage of the credit system is to run a completely cashless bar and restaurant for members with the club having all the funds upfront.
