Venues who use Ordermentum correctly find they have more success during busy trading periods like Christmas. Find out more.
Getting December right is crucial for all hospo businesses. In fact, our data suggests that many venues make a large chunk of their annual income during the festive season.
We find that the most successful venues are across all of the features that maximise the Ordermentum experience. This lets them stay organised, ensure they’ve got all the stock they need for the holiday season, and keeps staff and customers happy.
Here are our top three tips to keep you sailing smoothly into the New Year.
1. Always read your supplier's notes
If your supplier has any holiday specials or important information for you, they’ll likely write a note on their digital catalogue for you to read. Be sure to check this regularly from November to stay ahead of any announcements and ensure you’re always in the know.
2. Check to see if they’ve got new Christmas products
Many suppliers have limited edition Christmas stock that they start selling around November. They’ll also add new products to their catalogue each year. If you don’t want to miss out, then be sure to check out their catalogue thoroughly to make sure that you’re on top of all the products that could amp up the Christmas experience for your customers.
The Chat feature is a great way to double check in with your suppliers
3. Be aware of changes to delivery schedules around public holidays
Schedules can change around public holidays and there are often delays, and sometimes even cancellations. That’s why it’s so important to stay on top of any changes to your expected schedules. If you haven’t been informed already, check your supplier's schedule on their Ordermentum page. If the information isn’t readily available, you can also message your suppliers using the Chat feature.
There you have it! Three quick tips to make the most of the Ordermentum platform and make sure you’re ready for a successful and happy festive trading period.
