01 Aug SakkuSamba – Manchester & Bradford
A holistic tech approach allows this decadent venue to shine
A premier restaurant and nightclub in Manchester city centre, SakkuSamba has become a sought-after destination, offering an enthralling blend of gourmet cuisine, pulsating nightlife, and cutting-edge technology. From seamless data capture and flexible payment to automatic promotion systems, this establishment has redefined the way guests engage with the culinary and nightlife scene in Manchester. SakkuSamba comes to you from the great minds at Dabangg Group, famous for their brilliant work on Estabulo, Casa Peri Peri, Caffe Noor and Fleur Restaurant.
SakkuSamba understand the importance of providing guests with high-speed Wi-Fi throughout this sprawling venue, including in the private-hire VIP dining areas. The reliable internet access provided by POSUP allows guests to share their memorable moments and experiences in this visually stunning venue instantly, amplifying the restaurant’s social media presence and fostering a vibrant online community.
Additionally, the sophisticated data capture system provided by Stampede discreetly gathers customer preferences and feedback, allowing SakkuSamba to curate personalised targeted offers and incentives tailored to individual tastes, which has fostered a dedicated and loyal customer base, particularly in regards to high-end functions and bookings.
Innovative advertising techniques including on-street digital advertising displays (both billboard and free-standing digital boards) add a touch of magic to SakkuSamba’s reputation. Utilising advanced display screens strategically placed outside the venue, the establishment showcases vibrant advertisements of their infamous events – complete with exotic dancers! – and promotional content that aligns with guests’ preferences. This is, notably, a vital step in the continuity of the branding, which is expertly and consistently curated through social media channels, venue visuals and on the TMK ordering tablets, contributing to strong brand presence and promotion throughout the customer journey.
A sleek, ergonomic POS is a must when providing superior customer service. Installing Lightspeed K-series with its user friendly front-end and the rich configuration possibilities has provided SakkuSamba with the perfect tool to manage a range of customer needs, from large-scale banqueting to a fast-paced nightclub and bar environment. Flexible payment systems offered by pay-at table and counter options (through LS Pay) suit the myriad requirements of this bar.
