A menu is a grouping of Food and Beverage (F&B) items that may be sold together but will have an individual price attached to each item. A menu can include only F&B items. A menu can be a fixed-price menu that costs the same regardless of items selected, or a variable-price menu that depends on the items selected. A variable-price menu can include alternate choices with different prices; for example, a salmon entree for U.S. $24.95 or a prime rib entree for U.S. $29.95. In this case, the price for each person will vary depending on the individual selections.
A package is a grouping of items that may include menus, individual F&B items, individual non-F&B items, BEO (Banquet Event Order) items, and other packages. A package is sold as a unit for a set price; individual component items do not have individual prices. A package can have one overall price or a separate price for each person.
Menus and packages of these types are property-specific; that is, they are associated with a particular property, and are not generally available throughout the Siebel Hospitality system. If your access to Siebel Hospitality includes access to a property, you can see and work with the menus and packages associated with that property. Menus and packages may be associated with multiple properties through a property cluster, which is a group of properties that are linked to each other in the Siebel system. If your access to Siebel Hospitality includes access to a property cluster, you can see and work with menus and packages associated with all the properties in that cluster.
These types of menus and packages define how menus and packages are priced. Menu and package types also define the behaviors and calculations of multiple fields in parent menus, parent packages, and their child items. For more information about menus and packages pricing, see Types of Menus and Packages. For more information about menus and packages field behaviors and calculations, see Menu and Package Types Reference.
As a property manager or booking agent, you are responsible for managing property-specific menus and packages. You can add pre-structured menus and packages to functions that are associated with quotes and orders. You can modify menus, packages, menu and package product line items, and menu and package price line items. You can substitute products if the primary selected product runs out. You can create new menus and packages from component products. You can also track sales statistics for menus and packages.
