Dining out with Priava cloud at Zest

Sydney-headquartered restaurant group Zest Waterfront Restaurants has gone live with a cloud-based venue and event management software solution from Priava at two of its venues.

Zest has implemented the Priava  cloud platform at its two Sydney restaurants located at the Royal Motor Yacht Club at Point Piper in the eastern suburbs, and at the Middle Harbour 16ft Skiff Club at The Spit on the North Shore.

The venues stage up to 400 events annually ranging from weddings to corporate functions and awards ceremonies, and the new cloud-based venue management software enables Zest staff to work from both venues and benefit from access to the same, identical, and up-to-date customer information at both locations.

“We selected the Priava cloud platform because it will ultimately boost customer experience enabling our staff to access critical venue booking and operational information at their own individual moment of need, wherever they happen to be located,” said Raphael Kahn, Managing Director, Zest Waterfront Restaurants.

“At the same time, we will be able to rapidly access critical data on how the overall business is performing at any point in time, while reducing costs by negating the need for an on premise IT infrastructure upgrade.

“Whether our staff are working remotely or onsite, we’ll now be able to see the history of our customer relationships and automatically generate reports ensuring that we’re always connected to our data. Not only will our customers benefit from a more immediate, personal service, but our in-house team will also benefit from working with a tool which they will be able to access anytime, anywhere not just for lead and enquiry management but for rich reporting.”

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
