C & G - Seddon's Newest Bar and Restaurant

Posted by Ross Griffiths on Thursday, October 17, 2019

Yes, you read that right the first time around - C & G is back in action and under new ownership and management!

We have the pleasure of introducing you all to one of our newest clients and also a true long standing monument of Seddon. Renovated and rejuvenated, new ownership has breathed fresh life into the bar and restaurant.

C & G is serving fantastic craft beer and an extensive range of beautiful wines with delicious food in its bright inside bar-lounge and gigantic, sun soaked beer garden - perfect for arvo drinks this Spring. Also a big congratulations to Cross Creations for the fantastic landscaping job, it looks fantastic!

Not only will we be handling C & G’s accounts and finances but we’ve also aided them in setting up their point of sales and financial software to ensure they have the most user friendly system possible, but also the most powerful to fuel their growth moving forwards.

Lets take a look at some of these systems.


First things first - Kounta.

I’m sure some of you are familiar with Kounta already. It is a staff friendly point of sales (POS) software system - easy to use and manage, fully customize-able and fast! The ability to also install the app onto any smart device allows you to process payments or take orders from anywhere.

The most powerful function of Kounta is arguably its ability to generate in depth reports. You can track key metrics in real time and from anywhere. Kounta can give you deep insight into your sales, and you can track a huge range of information to help you understand your business better. These reports can even be exported and input into business intelligence to help deeper define how your business is operating from the day to day, to the growth it has throughout the year.

Kounta users can be confident making quick and informed decisions for their business!


Next up is ReceiptBank.

ReceiptBank is one of the easiest ways to stay on top of your bookkeeping. This app stores your receipts and analyzes the information on them and categorizes it accordingly. Making it easy to export this information into Xero or your accounting software of choice, which it connects seamlessly with!

ReceiptBank is safe and secure and utilizes cloudbased storage so you can always access it from any device at any time.

You can even link your suppliers directly with your account, meaning any receipts are acquired from the app and stored for your convenience.


Then there is Tyro.

Tyro provides fast, integrated and reliable EFTPOS Merchant Services for your business. Tyro even synchronizes with ReceiptBank allowing every transaction to be tracked and stored instantaneously and digitally.

You can monitor your EFTPOS transactions in real time, and transactions take less than 1.6 seconds to process. Forget about cash transactions when you have EFTPOS systems this swift!

Tyro is easy to set up and reliable with 99.9% uptime with 3G backup and dual live data centres.

Tyro is definitely more than ideal for hospitality businesses with its fast and seamless transaction capabilities and that is exactly why we’ve recommended them to the team at C & G.
