Have you visited YOUR website lately? How about the analytics for your website? With the world-wide annual Social Media Day right around the corner, coming June 30th 2012, maybe it’s time to dust off those old web links and outdated images and consider that over 2 billion people around the world are now surfin’ the web every day – 273 million of those folks are in the US alone! Consider that at the 2012 International Bowl Expo, over 10 keynote speakers will be presenting on the impact social media and websites have on the bowling industry and their customers. According to Stacy Karten with BCM magazine, “many Bowling Centers are great with getting their website up and running” but then falter with keeping the content fresh and new. Research shows that online users are less likely to return to a website if the content, social media links, and images are outdated.
Research also suggests that users return to websites more frequently when a service is offered or the site provides a method to connect with the company – and what better way to accomplish this than through online event reservations?! Now operating internationally, Party Center Software can help you boost and retain the web traffic you’re looking for by giving you and your customer’s simple, painless online event reservation capability. The beauty of this process is that the online booking feature is linked directly to your website, bringing even more people – and potential customers to your website! Party Center Software even offers the ability to track the analytics and metrics for your online booking site – included in the software! Jay Trietley with Alley Cats Bowl in Arlington had this to say about Party Center Software, “We have been using Party Center Software for the past year and our online bookings have grown substantially! In this day and age of do it now thinking – and now could be 2:00 in the morning…it’s great that they (our customers) have the ability to open our website and get the job done!” The upsells we have booked, along with the convenience, is a win-win for us and the customer!”
With customers like Rick Iceberg’s CJ Barrymore’s in Detroit realizing a 40% increase to their event profit margin, you cannot afford to miss out on the potential savings and online presence that Party Center Software can bring to your bowling business! Don’t delay the decision to get your website, social media, and online booking parameters defined. Your customers are waiting!

Nov 01, 2010 – The award winning Lazer Frenzy lazer maze has been added to Alley Cats, the popular bowling and family entertainment center in Arlington, Texas. Each participant is on a mission to navigate through the maze as quickly as possible which gives most everyone a sense that they are a secret agent on a top secret assignment. This arcade style lazer maze is a hit with young and old alike as it involves both mental and physical agility to weave around several lazer beams as quickly and accurately as possible to obtain a high score. It’s almost as if placing the player in their own version of the Mission Impossible movie!
Alley Cats Center is no stranger to Creative Works. Creative Works has had the privilege of working with Brian Smith, owner of the facility, in building their 4,500 square feet space themed laser tag arena in 2006 and then returned in 2009 to enhance the look of the arena to a high tech space adventure. The team at Alley Cats contacted Creative Works to add the Lazer Frenzy attraction to a space in their arcade that wasn’t producing the revenue needed. Lazer Frenzy is a great game to add to any arcade as it produces a great return on the investment. “We’
re extremely excited that we added the Lazer Frenzy attraction to our facility. Our customers love it and we’re excited to see the revenue stream it adds to our arcade” said Brian Smith, owner of Alley Cats. “Creative Works was our first choice for a lazer maze as we know they are a reputable company that provides quality attractions and great service.”
Jeff Schilling, founder of Creative Works, worked with Brian and his team in making this attraction a reality at Alley Cats. “We delivered a quality attraction that will not only increase the arcade revenues, but also create a buzz in the facility,” said Schilling. “We’re very pleased to install such a great new game in this center.” Lazer Frenzy won the best new product award for family fun centers by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.
