Lords Cricket Ground

Improving Business Process and Stock Control

The Client

MCC is the world’s most active cricket club, the owner of Lord’s Ground and the guardian of The Laws of the game. Lord’s is known throughout the world as The Home of Cricket.

The Opportunity

Lord’s required a team of stocktakers and major match day auditors across all public bar areas.

What we did

Moneypennys mobilised a team of auditors who have extensive knowledge of the stock system used at Lord’s (Fourth’s FnBManager system). We have been providing this service since 2006, and over that time, through our expertise in this area, we have helped significantly improve results and profitability.

The results

“Nick and his company have worked with us at Lord’s for several seasons now and over that time have helped us to make significant improvements in our systems and processes whilst providing excellent day-to-day support as required. We use them for various business areas including:

  • liquor and food stocktaking month ends
  • major match day opening / closing stock and bar takings / stock
    analysis
  • support and development of FnB shop systems and reporting
  • regular internal control and efficiency reviews
  • Loss and waste control management
  • Management reporting

I have always found their support quality excellent and good value and importantly have found that they have added significant value over and above the basics you would expect from companies of this nature in moving Lord’s forward operationally.”
