The Bravo POS not only functions as a standard POS (point of sale), but perhaps more importantly as a dance management system. In real time, club operators and/or DJs can see what dancers are in the club, which dancers are on which stage or in the VIP room, how much funny money has been sold, which dancers are making the most money and much more. not only functions as a standard POS (point of sale), but perhaps more importantly as a dance management system. In real time, club operators and/or DJs can see what dancers are in the club, which dancers are on which stage or in the VIP room, how much funny money has been sold, which dancers are making the most money and much more. "When I'm at the club, I'm constantly auditing what everyone else is doing; I'm going around to VIP to see how the girls are doing, to the bars to see how the sales are, to the door, to see how many dancer dollars we have, basically checking everything to make sure it's all running well," says Rick. "When you have the ability to present all of that information on one computer screen, and of course complementing that with cameras, you get a real-time view of what's going on in that exact moment. It allows me as a club operator to be more efficient and to see the bigger picture." And that's not the only way XGenRen can assist with a club's money management. For several years prior to co-owning and operating XGenRen and Club Lust, Rick Neefe was a wealth analyst for Wells Fargo. Thanks to this keen experience, Rick is able to assist club operators who are in need of a loan for a club renovation. And as many club owners surely realize, getting a loan for an adult nightclub renovation is typically no easy task. "This industry, in general, is often frowned upon by the banking industry," says Rick. "If you say that you are in adult www.ExoticDancer.com entertainment, or you're a nightclub or a bar, you're basically turned away from the lending that exists for traditional retail businesses. I know this, because I was on the other side when I was working in the banks. But the good news is, thanks to that experience, I've partnered with several banks who are willing to work with the clientele that we work with and move beyond the restrictions of the banking industry to see the bigger picture." Whether it's club renovations, the club's sound and lighting products and design, its furniture, its POS system or even the money it takes to pay for a club renovation, J.R. and Rick Neefe met every challenge they faced as club owners with a "do-it-ourselves" attitude. And thanks to their background in engineering and finance, they were not only able to pull it off within their own club, but they've been able to bring that expertise to more clubs across the country with XGenRen. "As engineers, and even as club owners, we've based everything we've done off of the ability to create solutions to the problems we're faced with," says J.R. "That's what we're trying to bring to the adult nightclub industry with XGenRen. And we're having fun doing it, because there are solutions to the problems that many club operators face. You just have to think of an idea and get it done." For more information, please call (727) 490-9870, or visit Xgenren.com. Club Bulletin July 2013 11
