Center Command’s Lane Control screen features color-coded lane icons, indicating the status of all lanes at a glance. Computer Score is one of the easiest systems to use, and even a novice is able to Start, Move or End Lanes after just a few minutes' instruction. The P. O. S. system is fully integrated to the League Secretary program, as well as the Lane Control software, allowing League Pre-Bowling or Post-Bowling transactions outside of the schedule date. Open Games can be paid for before or after play, and Time Bowling is a cinch. Every item sold is reported for each Shift, Day, Week, Month, or Year. Tight security password level entry safeguards critical program areas - there is even a Staff Record Log generated by password entry, providing Management with tracking of staff access to all program areas requiring security. A complete record of every Open Play game bowled during the previous 7 days is retained, allowing the printing of scores or recovering or for any lane, at any time, and many, many more features..
Lock / Unlock Bowler Keypads
Center Command allows you full control in the Play Area. Bowler Keypads can be locked, allowing only the basic functions, such as Name Entry, Pindication display, Skip and Resume any bowler in the line-up, and change the Scoregrid display between 5 and 10 frames. The 'locking' function is particularly useful when young children are being disruptive by constantly pressing buttons on the keypads. Ball Speed is a great feature, but there may be occasions when it may not be preferred. This option is easily solved - simply disable the Ball Speed display from the Control Desk. Center Command offers you Ultimate Control!
'Open Play' Standing Sheets
A powerful feature - mostly used to generate Competition Results based on Open Play. Excellent for Group Bookings, Corporate Functions and In-House Tournaments - bowl on Open Play and within seconds after all games ended, have a complete Results Sheet showing winning lane, all lanes' placings, best score for males and females - even with handicap!. Another application is with School Bowling, with different players each week - the results could be used to generate 'Inter-School' competition results. Too Easy!
Move Lanes or Bowlers
Move ALL bowlers from one lane to another for any reason. Move just SOME of the bowlers from one lane to another lane DURING THEIR GAME. Move a bowler from one lane to a DIFFERENT group of bowlers on another lane. Transfer UNPLAYED paid games from one lane to another.
Made an error? Transfer back. That's flexibility!
Automatic Bumpers Integration
Do you have automatic bumpers, or will you install them later? Computer Score allows you to control their movement up or down according to player selection. All types of Automatic Bumper Systems can be controlled by Computer Score - we just need to know the type in your center. This function can be added at any time. The choices can be changed at any time - by a simple touch.
View / Edit ANY lane
Select any lane and touch one button - you will see the Lane Monitor screen on your Control Desk workstation - EXACTLY how it appears on the lane. From this point, you may choose any function from the 'Help' Menu to edit the scoregrid and transfer it back to the Lane. Excellent feature for larger centers - help your customers without leaving the Control Desk.
Point of Sale
Computer Score's fully integrated Point Of Sale Cash Control system is extremely easy to use. Combinations of up to ten various items can be sold in one common transaction with the touch of a single item button. Unlimited Departments and Items can be easily set up in seconds, according to your individual requirements.
Schools, Corporate Groups and regular Clubs can charge their purchases to a permanent account, have an invoice generated by the software, and allow them to pay at a prescribed future date. Other customers can charge their purchases to a TAB account, allowing them to include multiple transactions on their TAB and pay in full at the end of their stay. Balances of both Tabs and Accounts can be transferred between the Control, Café and Bar Counters, allowing your customers to make one payment for all transactions at one Counter.
Computer Score software handles Locker Rentals easily and simply. Yearly, Monthly, or from ANY date to ANY date, you can satisfy your customers' needs - even to allow multiple regular payments, or share lockers. The Locker Program will generate management reports to show your Total Lockers, those Available, Rented or Due for Renewal, and also access the bowler's details, including their league average and Club Membership number.
Cafe & Bar
The Café and the Bar modules utilise the same software design as Center Command, but are operated as separate Point Of Sale locations. They do not require connection to the Computer Score network, but if on the same network, their software and transaction facilities can be accessed from the Bowling Point Of Sale as well.
Items and prices are individually set up for the Cafe or Bar locations, and Management Reports will include all income and details for each particular location. Detailed reports for every Shift, Day, Week, Month and Year are available for each location - Bowling, Cafe and Bar - but the software allows for entry of total income from the Cafe and Bar to be included with the Bowling income, if desired. By this method, totals of all the income areas can be jointly presented on one Report, if necessary, for your convenience. Setting up of Items and Prices for each income area uses the same structure, so that your personnel is able to operate any one, or all of the locations comfortably. .
Cafe, Bar or Other?
Other modules may be added to the Computer Score range of locations, such as 'Laser Tag' or 'Mini-Golf', if in the same building. Each of these locations will have its own individual Point Of Sale Items and Prices, and individual Management Reports for each Shift, day, Week, Month and Year. Items and Prices can be changed in a few seconds.
Computer Score's electronic Booking Sheet and Waiting List function provides the accurate management of your business at those busy times, when waiting customers need to be processed quickly and efficiently.
Advance Bookings are fully integrated within the Deposit system, allowing payment of deposit for Groups or Parties bookings.
Advance Bookings will automatically appear in the Waiting List on the day of play, and pre-paid deposits are handled automatically by the software in the transaction. Flashing screen messages alert the operator to the next waiting booking and the next lane available. The software scans each lane every 60 seconds, and updates the expected finishing time for each lane, according to bowling speed.
Waiting List & Booking Sheet
Computer Score Waiting List / Booking Sheet function allows the accurate management of your business at those busy times, when customers need to be processed quickly and efficiently.
Advance reservations are fully integrated with the Deposit system allowing you to take a deposit for bookings, such as Group Bookings and Birthday Parties.
Bookings will automatically appear in the Waiting List on the day of play and can easily be started with consideration to any deposit paid. The control operator is automatically notified when the next booking is due and this information, along with the expected ending time of every lane, is constantly updated according to the actual speed of play on each lane.
