To achieve a good Head Office setup and ongoing experience, planning is required. Below are some good practices you can implement.
Decide on an item naming convention
To avoid inconsistent concession item names (Small Coke, Sml Sprite, SMALL FANTA), decide from the start what your convention will be, and make all of your staff aware of it.
For better readability on sales channels, Vista recommends that you don't format item names all in caps.
Use a base-and-derived price card structure
You can create standalone price cards, but you will save yourself a lot of time and effort if you use base and derived price cards.
Use area categories for different pricing areas
Only use area categories to differentiate between pricing areas in your seating layout. For differential pricing that is based on considerations other than seat location, use promotions/discounts and ticket types.
Make use of pre-configured Vista entities
When you use Vista for the first time, you will find that many of the data entities listed in this guide come with sensible, pre-configured options.
