Holiday Parks

Holiday parks have been a staple for British holiday makers for decades. These have changed from the traditional knobbly knee contests to family log cabin breaks and all action holidays. The staycation sector has always been thriving whilst ever changing with the times.

Holiday Parks

One thing that has certainly changed on parks is the offerings in retail opportunities, evolving from simple restaurant dining, to multiple food outlets, bars, shops and vending machines. 

Whilst guests are offered an extensive choice, this creates site management a foray of problems in controlling the significant volume of stock and varied stock lines, alongside the risk created due to multiple outlets.

Information for each venue/outlet along with overall site performance has now become a required factor in helping to maintain excellent choice, along with tangible trading results.

Stocktaking for holiday parks

Volume reporting and sales analysis are critical components in making outlets profitable. This is helped by:
  • sales data to reduce waste on prepped lines that do not move
  • having correct staff levels to maximise profits, and
  • reducing wages spent on staff inactivity

Capcon appreciates this and our ability to interact with the majority of EPOS systems enables us to provide data not only at venue level, but also at park level. In doing so, we help to reduce risk to specific areas of the business by providing meaningful data to help the outlets thrive. Whilst this data can be given to park level management, it can also be viewed in our Portal for group reporting and analysis.

Employee screening for holiday parks

One of the core issues for holiday parks, due to their nature and the British weather, is the seasonality of the holiday breaks. This can create significant issues in staffing requirements – in particular, the seasonal staff.

There are many legal checks and requirements that are now needed before allowing staff to commence work.

Capcon offers a complete pre-employment screening service to holiday park clients, enabling management to keep on top of all legal requirements and know who they are hiring, thereby protecting their business and freeing up time to focus on running their parks.
