Venue Driver introduces receipt printing capability.

August 24th, 2010

After testing with some of the hottest venues in the world, we’re proud to offer receipt/chit printing capability for Venue Driver’s VIP/reservation check-in function. Certainly, the nightlife world is becoming a paperless one, with many venues eschewing paper-systems entirely in favor of systems like our cutting-edge iPad application-based software, but for many venues, especially those situated in hotels and casinos, a paper-based backup of transactions may be required by corporate policy, or local law itself.

With that in mind, we’re proud to offer this feature for all new and existing clients. We can work to configure your existing POS printers to properly format for our system, or users can select from our low-cost line of thermal and impact printers for a painless turnkey operational experience. Please contact your Venue Driver rep today for more information on this useful new feature. And as always, any interested parties may drop us a line at anytime at for more information on the Venue Driver suite of services.

August 16th, 2010

As Venue Driver clients, did you know that you can email guestlists and reservations directly to the system and have them appear instantaneously at the door via your choice of check-in method, whether it be your laptop or the Apple iPad?

Here at Venue Driver, we know that today’s nightlife professional is often constantly on the move and “lives or dies” by his or her mobile device. Of course, Venue Driver is fully accessible on all major mobile platforms, but we’ve also gone one step further by allowing the client-on-the-go to email his or her guestlists and reservations in. It’s as simple as firing up your mobile device’s email client and sending the message in an easy-to-remember format to an email address we set up specifically for your venue.

Existing clients should contact their Venue Driver rep today to enable this free addition to the Venue Driver suite. If you’re not a Venue Driver client yet and are interested in this and more, please drop us a line at

Apple updates iOS for all devices

July 21st, 2010

iPad and iPod

A few days ago, Apple Inc deployed an update to their iOS platform across their entire mobile device line, including the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4. On the iPad, the version went from 3.2 to 3.2.1, where the major fix includes optimizations to the Wi-Fi component of the  iPad, allowing for a more consistent and reliable 3G connection. On the iPod touch and iPhone, the version went from 4.0 to 4.0.1, with the main issue being addressed including a more accurate representation of signal strength on the device.

We encourage all of our clients to sync their mobile Apple devices to obtain these updates. As they are connectivity-related, this will result in more consistent performance with the Venue Driver suite.
