Creating Beverage Packages


Within the iVvy Venues Software System, Beverages Items are organised into Packages for ease of use and manageability of pricing.

These beverage packages can be added to bookings to populate beverage items on Banquet event orders, and track orders. 

Beverage Packages contain your list of Beverage Items. The system does not allow you to add individual items to a booking, instead they are added to the booking through beverage packages. These packages can be priced:
